OJ's TV Review - Falling Skies season 3

Well season 3 of Falling Skies has been and gone now; time sure flies when your having fun.

Last year season 2 ended on what I thought was an epic cliffhanger that I couldn't wait to see what they did with. Now with Falling Skies, there are always a few months between the last scene of a season and the first scene of the new one, in this case 3, so the first few episodes you got to know whats been happening and what last seasons' effects were. Mild spoiler here but new aliens have landed! A small clan of what are called the Volm have appeared, and they have the story of trust issues in the series; two more story-lines then appeared, that which involved Hal, and one involving Tom's new daughter; the former of the two I thought was great and enjoyed it all, the latter, though, not so much, at first it was intriguing but then became quite boring and then made no sense. Even the Volm didn't have much screen time as I expected. So even though this season has my most favorite episode in it, I felt it was the weakest of the seasons we've had so far - mostly because the finale cliffhanger was just not as good as the suspenseful endings of the previous; they have a lot of explaining to do in season 4, that's for sure. All-in-all this season gets a 6/10 so IT WAS OK+.
