The second season of Falling Skies is less than 2 weeks away. The new season looks to be even better than the first with more action, more drama and more mysteries. We also get some answers to previous questions burning in the minds of fans.
Recently, Three If By Space released a brief synopsis for all 10 of season two’s episodes. Each is a very brief description, but they all reveal a little something about where the storyline is headed this season. If you’re not a fan of spoilers, do NOT click on the link!
For the information junkies like me out there, click on over to Falling Skies Season 2 Episode Descriptions. Enjoy!
It’s been about 2 weeks since my last batch of Falling Skies cast interviews, so I’m overdue on posting this, but these are longer and more in-depth clips than before. In this latest batch of interviews you get to see the cast discuss the weapons training they received for the show, talk about who might be a practical joker on set, answer whether or not any of them have met Steven Spielberg and finally tell how much they enjoy being a part of Falling Skies. So sit back and enjoy watching these wonderful actors give candid answers to some questions we’ve all wanted to ask.
First up: Weapons Training
Fans of Falling Skies have waited patiently, yet excitedly for season 2 to premiere. It may still be a few weeks away, but my good friend Robert Prentice of Three If By Space has some new information you will definitely want to check out. The juiciest bit of all is a brand-new 2 minute exclusive season 2 preview from Access Hollywood.
If you liked the show last season, this new season will literally blow you away. If you were one of the few who wasn’t sure about Falling Skies, season 2 is going to change your mind for the better. There’s more action, the special effects are even better (if that’s possible as they were near perfect in season 1), and the fight grows more intense.
So hurry over to Three If By Space to read “All New Look at Falling Skies Season 2″ and see the exclusive new video from Access Hollywood. You will not be disappointed.

I’m a little late with this as I mentioned in Falling Skies Set Visit Part 3 – Meet The Cast! that I’d have some interviews in “about a week.” Well, it’s been almost 2 weeks, but as promised some short, but sweet, interviews with some of the great cast of Falling Skies.
As I mentioned in my previous article, when we first arrived on set shooting was going on so we were escorted to a large room while the real work was being done. That was where we were surprised by Colin Cunningham (Pope), Peter Shinkoda (Dai), Drew Roy (Hal), and Sarah Carter (Maggie) who joined the already present Connor Jessup (Ben) to patiently and graciously answer all our burning questions.
Let’s start with the shortest video in the bunch. It’s only 15 seconds long, but it
answers the question, “Who’s the funniest person on set?” One actor gives a very definitive answer, and after meeting this person I’m not surprised one bit.
A little while back I had the honor of reviewing a wonderful scifi short film from an up-and-coming young filmmaker by the name of Jason Huls and production company Ten Wing Films. If you haven’t heard of it yet, you can read my review and watch the trailer here: The Drone – Intriguiging Scifi Short Film. Jason is a very busy young man and I’ve been remiss in bringing to your attention another scifi short he’s working on called Citizen in the Temple. I aim to remedy that omission immediately.
Great news for fans of “L5.” Here are a few goodies the fine folks at Hemogoblin have presented to us. First we have a video “shout out” from Stanley Von Medvey & Chad Burns where they express their gratitude towards all you fans who’ve helped make the show such a success. Click through for the video and some more surprises. Read the rest of this entry
“Androids are not supposed to dream.”
This is the tagline of a soon to be released sci-fi short film from Ten Wing Films and the mind of Jason Huls. The Drone is a very interesting take on the concept of androids in a futuristic society and what it means to be a “person.”
At 0832 CST Monday March 5th, L5 passed one million downloads.
For all of you who’ve downloaded L5 and enjoyed it, but have yet to donate anything, please allow me to explain how giving just a dollar would be the best investment you could ever make. One damned dollar people. You spend five times that each morning at Starbucks and all you get is 5-10 minutes of coffee you could’ve made for pennies at home. With a single dollar from each downloader we could have already cemented a couple of 13 episode seasons each with budgets of over twice what this one cost. Imagine how much more awesome it would be with more budgetary freedom. (Maths: $1,000,000 / 26 episodes over 2 seasons = $38,461.54 per episode. That’s 2.54 times the pilot’s budget…for a buck!)
