Last week we were introduced to the band of rag tag resistance members trying to survive after mechanized alien invaders have killed off much of Earths population and resources and fans were instantly interested in their survival.
Tonight’s episode “Prisoner of War” will move quickly into the plot line of our main character Tom Mason (Noah Wylie) finding his son who has been abducted and had a creepy mondo sized caterpillar device attached to his spine. The previews show the doctors working to try to remove these devices which keeps killing them when they try. It seems early in the series for us to be getting a tear filled reunion scene but we are sure Spielberg does know how to keep an audience interested. “Falling Skies” Stars: Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Dale Dye, Drew Roy.
There are both a couple of movie clips for you in the video gallery and a whole slew of promotional photo stills of “Falling Skies” episode “Prisoner of War” in the slide show here.

Have we seen this science fiction premise before? Yes, but who cares? It’s a fun premise that really never gets old for sci fi fans, it’s produced by Mr. Sci Fi himself Steven Spielberg and stars some very capable actors portraying likable characters. We predict a new hit.
