 Big Jim was a star Cornerback, not Quarterback.  Why exactly did Norrie run away from home?  I totally missed it, if it was given.  The Simpsons reference was kinda funny.

 Damn it!  Wrote a long post and of course, it doesn't go through.

Quick recap...Michael, you called Joe "Colin" for the entire Pilot review which was incorrect.  Now you're calling Peter Randolph by the name "Freddie."  Freddie was the cop who caught the richoted bullet in the last episode.

A friend and I watched these first couple episodes and told me they've just about changed every single part and character in the book except they there's a giant dome.  For instance, Barbie isn't some ex-military, hitman, muscle working for loan sharks or whatever he's doing.  He's a straight-laced Iraq War Vet good guy who was doing odd jobs around town.  Probably the most straight-forward good guy King has ever written.

There's more, but as I said Mania didn't post my last comment with more detail and I don't feel like typing them out all over again.

Well, let me see... they had one sheriff and three deputies. THe sheriff died in the pilot, one deputy on the second, and another in the third, there's only the girl left. This means... 

... THIS SHOW ENDS NEXT WEEK! HOORAY!!! WE CAN MOVE ON TO THE NEXT TV SHOW!!!

AND TAKE DEFIANCE AND FALLING SKIES WITH YOU!!!

I like Falling Skies. I think it's gotten better every season. I don't know why Mania doesn't cover it.

As for the review, I pretty much agree with it except the rating. I think a C is far too generous. I'd give it a D. I came close to deleting the episode several times before finishing it. To go with all the points made, I'd also point out that I found the dialogue to be very poorly written (and executed). I'll give it another episode or two.

All Freddie (or Peter or whatever) did was shoot a gun in the air.  He certainly didn't mean for a richochet to hit anybody, much less kill his partner.  Yet everybody treated him like a dangerous serial killer.  First a mob wanted to lynch him and then when he got the hell out of there without hurting anybody else (I would have too) they hunted him down to murder him on sight.  These people aren't too bright.

 Yes ... why exactly doesn't Mania cover Falling Skies??  It that doesn't fall into this Genre, I don't know what does.
