Critic Consensus: Despite the lack of edginess and gore of more popular dystopian tv programming, Falling Skies still engages with a new spin on the classic alien invasion trope.

Unfortunately, this eight-week series, dramatizing the efforts of a scrappy band of humans to fight a superior alien invasion, sandwiches every sci fi cliché from Battle: Los Angeles to War of the Worlds into one predictable program.
In due time, it starts to take hold, telling its timeworn alien invasion tale in ways that might well pull you along.
It has a solid Saturday-matinee tone, as the characters dart through the wrecked streets with dirt on their cheeks and rifles on their shoulders.
