That's part of the news! The announcement also includes an all expenses paid, one-way trip back to the past to see the future in a whole new way! ;-) Updated.

Yikes. I just watched the falling skies finale. They had time to prepare, and that's all we got? Ouch.

I'm never happy when a show someone enjoys is cancelled. I've enjoyed the show through its run and wish they hadn't made some of the creative decisions they did going into this season. The core characters have, for the most part, not failed to entertain, and I'll miss Big Jim, Julia, Joe and Norrie, for sure! :-)

I haven't watched the second episode yet, but I agree with you on why I wanted to watch. I love the pre-apocalypse setting and the terror of what's coming down. What surprised me in the premiere was how quickly everyone went from seeing a cop being eaten on TV to buying into the terror. There was no in between. In this age of reality TV, the majority of reactions should have been like the daughter's -- that's made up, right? Instead, the world stopped and panic ensued. I think they lost their edge right there. What could have been an interesting look a the slow and frightening breakdown of society became "let's just get to the zombies" because they don't seem to know anything else. Shame.

I decided to pretend that whole part didn't exist. I, too, was shaking my head at a bunch of snakes in cages still stuffed full of bags of heroin. Unless I missed the part where Lena was stuffing the bags of heroin into the snakes herself, it was a bit ludicrous.

Any other time, I'd agree that Avi talk with Ray, but it's the very reasons you're noting that are why I think he shouldn't. Ray was actually in love with Kate and to hear from Avi about killing her might kill his ability to forgive his old friend. That he did it is one thing, but hearing about it is something else completely. I don't think I could listen while someone talked about killing someone I loved even if they thought they did it to save me. It would be just a hair too much information to get over. It's hard though, because I really like Avi. But he might just have to bite the bullet on those feelings.

Twas undergoing some modifications. It's back up and running!

To be clear, I wasn't talking about intentionally serious moments that might have come across as silly, but heartfelt moments, such as those with Ray and Conor on Conor's birthday. They didn't mean to dance and laugh, but they wound up doing it anyway. Mickey had some with the kids, as well. Those moments are lost this season, and I miss them.

I thought so, too. But even more, there is that niggling Catholic guilt on top of the desire to make the deal that I image was present. Could have been my own Catholic guilt acting as if it was part of the show...

You and RockStarinPalmSprings are on the same page with all the baggage Ray has to carry around. I think that's why he's stayed away from his family, because he doesn't want to make promises he can't keep. He has no friends left, and he could really use some friends. It was pretty vile of Romero to say he "knew" how much Ray loved Father O'connor. As for Mick, the more that happens to Ray, the more I want to see Mick taken down a peg or two, but it never seems to happen. Ah well.
