    Anyone watching Falling Skies? I have watched the first 3 and thought it was pretty good. It would make an awesome 1st person shooter. I could just imagine teams of people online going up against hordes of "skitters" or rouge bands battling each other for equipment and territory while the skitters run amok.

    Check it out if you haven't already. It's pretty good.

    Anywhere you think of me.
    I'm going to watch it as soon as the season finishes. I don't like starting a series and i have to wait a week for another episode. When i start to watch a series i wanted to watch at least 10 episodes one after the other.

    Watching it. It's not bad, would like to see the aliens a bit more, but it's not too far into the series, so maybe we'll get some alien heavy episodes a bit later. Can't really be too picky these days with hardly any sci-fi series around [​IMG].

    I didn't like, I saw the first 3 episodes and it's just about them trying to survive.
    I already lost interest

    I love my Sci-Fi shows and had no idea about this, just downloading the first five eps, from what I have heard it sounds like The Walking Dead but with Aliens.
    EDIT: Just watched all 5 released episodes in one sitting, I like it so far, only thing that bugs me is how it seems to skip several scenes sometimes.

    Like how does it seem to skip several scenes? I haven't noticed anything too major.

    For example, they talk about going somewhere, then all of a sudden the next scene they are right outside there. It just seems to me that they cut a few scenes out, it's the first time I've seen anything like this.

    Watched 5 of the episodes. Not really interested in the show. I'll probably just continue watching to see what happens, though.

    The Falling.Skies.S01E08.720p.HDTV.x264-IMMERSE release had out of sync audio, which I found out the hard way before it got nuked :<

    Will edit once I've watched the episode.
