Let me put it this way - it lasted longer than V.

It's not bad. I am enjoying overall. But it is not like some shows where each episode is its own separate story. Like the Walking Dead, the episodes feed into the next. If you miss one (and you are like me) you won't watch the future episodes until you watch the one you missed or you might be missing something.

It's something that you watch between programs you really like. Never my first choice, but worth watching when everything else has been exhausted. Frankly there aren't a lot of great sci-fi options right now, so I'm glad to see something in the genre at least.

And yes, it's much better than V and Terra Nova, but that doesn't tell you much.

I wouldn't recommend it at all. My wife likes it so I force myself to watch it with her so we can spend an hour together. I can't see it making it past this season either. If Spielberg wasn't behind this it wouldn't have been renewed last season. "V" was much better and that's not saying a lot.

Technically V lasted two seasons and we are on just season 2 for Falling Skies. Still Falling Skies is a good deal better than V. You can tell, however, that the writers are starting to slip. Hopefully the story gets better footing in the coming episodes.

One thing to consider is that Falling Skies 1st season was only 10 episodes, (I hate these half seasons) but it ended with a 5.9 ratings.
Season 2's starting episode had a 4.5 rating.
Those are strong numbers, however it will be a wait and see, between what it costs to produce and what the advertisers bring in.
