Falling Skies is a science fiction drama television series that aired from 2011 to 2015 on TNT. The show is set six months after an alien invasion has left the world devastated and humanity struggling to survive. The series follows a group of survivors, led by former history professor Tom Mason (Noah Wyle), as they band together to fight off the alien invaders and discover the truth behind their invasion.

Tom Mason, his three sons, and a diverse group of survivors are struggling to survive in a world where the collapse of society is inevitable. Not only do they face desperate food and water shortages, but they must also be prepared to fight the alien "Skitters" and their robot "Mechs" at any moment. Tom is viewed as a natural leader, and he rallies the group to fight back against the aliens.

Moon Bloodgood plays Anne Glass, a pediatrician who becomes the de facto medic for the survivors. Drew Roy portrays Hal Mason, Tom's oldest son who is a skilled fighter and quickly falls in love with Karen (Jessy Schram), a girl who was captured by the aliens and has been brainwashed to work for them. Seychelle Gabriel plays Lourdes, a teenage girl who was separated from her family and finds a new home with the survivors.

As the series progresses, the group is joined by other survivors, including military veteran Dan Weaver (Will Patton), former gang member John Pope (Colin Cunningham), and former insurance salesman Mike Thompson (Martin Roach). The tension between them often leads to arguments, but they remain united in their goal to survive and protect each other.

Connor Jessup plays Ben, Tom's middle son who is captured by the aliens and undergoes a transformation that gives him unique powers. Will Patton portrays Dan Weaver, a tough but compassionate military commander who is initially suspicious of Tom's leadership but eventually becomes his ally. Sarah Carter plays Maggie, a soldier who joins the group and quickly becomes one of their best fighters.

Throughout the series, Tom and his group face many challenges and lose several members along the way. They are often pushed to their limits, but they remain determined to survive and push back against the alien invaders. Along the way, they also encounter other groups of survivors who have their own agendas and goals.

The show explores themes of survival, family, loyalty, and the human spirit's resilience in the face of desperate circumstances. The characters are all complex and realistic, and their struggles and triumphs are compelling to watch.

Falling Skies also features impressive special effects and action sequences, with the alien ships and creatures looking frighteningly realistic. The show's slow-burning storytelling and suspenseful plot twists keep viewers invested in the characters and their struggles.

Overall, Falling Skies is an excellent sci-fi drama that combines thrilling action sequences with strong character development and emotional storytelling. The show may be over, but it remains a must-watch for fans of the genre.

Falling Skies is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (53 episodes). The series first aired on June 19, 2011.
