Re: Falling Water (USA) -- From the EP of The Walking Dead -- Season 1 Thread -- 9/21

Watched the preview of the Pilot episode that aired really late the other night. It actually aired commercial free.

Honestly, I wasn't too crazy about it. Felt really sleepy and slow burn. Not sure I really understood what was going on with the 3 strangers (Will Yun Lee, Lizzie Brochere and David Ajala) Supposedly it has something to do with their dreams linking them.

I have a lot on my plate already and I think I'm going to pass on this show.

The Pilot will air again officially on Thursday October 13th. I think this show is going to struggle on Thursdays. Terrible night to put a slow burn supernatural thriller.

I dont mind a slow burn so I liked it. It seemed like a more coherent version of Sense 8.

Watched this yesterday, almost shut it off halfway through because I thought I was getting lost. Then the woman with the baby dreams was approached by the business man, she did the inception thing, and I felt the pilot turned around for me. I'm in.

I never watch anything when it actually airs, so my viewing schedule is very flexible.

I was almost going to check this out for Lizzie Brochere. Then I saw that Blake Masters created this. He created Brotherhood (on Showtime), which I was a very big fan of. If anyone hasn't seen that, they should definitely check it out. After seeing all the people involved, I watched the trailer again and still can't convince myself. Too many shows, too little time.

This hasn't gotten much discussion but it's a very interesting show once you get past the overly stylized pilot.

There is a deeper mystery woven into the narrative, vaguely reminiscent of Lost.

I'm enjoying this.

I wonder if like inception. That cult uses the green shoes to differentiate when you are in a dream vs when you are not. As the girl who killed the ambassador took hers off before she went in the cafe.

That could be a possibility.

It could be even more like Inception if there are dreams within a dream happening for multiple people.

I'm really liking this show but I fear the low-key tone is driving away audiences used to "big boom" in their shows.

That was a bizarre ending. Reminded me of Existenz. Not sure where they go from here, in the unlikely event this gets renewed.

Yeah, the ending was weird as shit. FWIW I still think they are all dreaming. And I don't know how the mom thinks she make him safe if she still doesn't even have his actual physical body.

Renewed for a second season : http://deadline.com/2017/04/falling-...er-1202060037/

New showrunner hired as well.

If you missed it, the first season will be available on Amazon Prime later this year.

Glad it's renewed but a change of showrunner usually does not augur well. We will see.

It was a strong first season, if not exactly commercial and mainstream enough for the average person.

Any news on a premiere date? I noticed that NBC Universal has a new head, and she seems to want to dump the "dark" dramas and replace them with comedies. I hope Falling Water isn't collateral damage from the new regime.

No, if there was a premiere date I would have posted it in the Fall premiere sticky.

There's no information about when it's airing. USA hasn't said anything. If I had to guess it would be winter or spring 2018.

Season 1 isn't even on Amazon Prime yet.

For those curious,

season 2 of Falling Water begins production this Wednesday.

They don't wrap until next March.

You're looking at season 2 either airing late Spring or next summer 2018.

An 18-21 month break between seasons is usually bad for a show (unless you're Game of Thrones). I hope the audience hasn't forgotten about the show by then, it wasn't exactly hugely advertised to begin with.

Season 2 premier Sat Jan 6 at 10 PM. A switch from Thursdays to Saturdays can't be good.

Since pretty much nobody watched this show (here especially), I think this should be re-named Series thread. Seems like a lot of these dark heavily serialized shows these days aren't really discussion board friendly. Also, this show gets virtually no promotion from USA and it's premiering next week on a Saturday.

Much like with Fox's Excorcist I was surprised and pleased in got a season 2, and I dont expect a season 3.

Like most cable shows these days, the network had basically already committed to two seasons before it ever aired. Don't expect a third season. The good thing is that the writers and producers likely knew that before making season two.
