The alien lore and battles are kind of interesting, the interpersonal stuff is awfully trite and formulaic. I like to FF to the good stuff. One dramatic element they did do well was to introduce ambiguously evil, violent humans who would kick ass against the aliens, but you couldn't really trust them. Some of the best acting is from those guys, good meaty parts to bite into.

OK! So I'll keep watching this season with the comforting knowledge it won't end without resolution ... well .. at least this year.

I skip through it to just watch the alien plot/battle stuff and the relevant strategy background material. But once they get into the teen chat muck or the rest of the soap opera baloney (like the 30 minutes they just devoted to that boring chick dying with the spike in her head, sheesh), it's :30 Skip to the rescue. If you cut the blabbery melodramatic crap out, it's an ok show.

My HR21-200 SL wasn't picking up Sunday's season finale. Folks may want to check their TDL to verify that episode will be recorded.

The show has actually trimmed out a lot of the soap opera romance and family bathos and is sticking more to the hardcore war strategy and action stuff which is way better. Less fomulaic fluff, more content.

Thanks for the tip but this is interesting as my HR44-500 had it in the list. My SL is set to first run only so that flag is not the issue, I suppose they could have fixed the guide date between your post and mine..

Gave up on this show near the end of last season. I just had a hard time getting past how much I really could care or less about the main characters, they just really bored me. I found myself wishing that they would focus more on some of the "part-time" characters who seemed much more interesting. In any case glad to see it's still going for those who are enjoying it, it's always good to have sci-fi shows surviving out there, even if this one isn't particularly my thing.

No question the main characters are pretty weak. They were helped some with that recent false-memory flashback show where you got to see whole new sides of some of them. But overall, far too generic and bland. Pope is the only guy who stands out from the crowd, and his continual pissed-off stance almost seems like he's about to explode at his fellow actors and characters about how insipid they are. "Can somebody ONCE do or say something that's not entirely predictable?!"

 

For me the sci-fi EFX are pretty good and now the mystery of the big gun and all is carrying me along.

You mean season four? Season three just wrapped up.

Or were you being facetious somehow? :)

 

 

BTW, we thought the season three cliffhanger was kind of weak.

I watched the finale last night.  I think I'm done with this show.  That was the most ridiculous hour of tv I've ever seen.

Yeah, it was like they just realized they were picked up for another season and said now what do we do story wise? Disappointed with the finally for sure

They probably double-shoot parts of the final episode, one that wraps up the story, and one that continues it.

 

They can't possibly know that far in advance whether they'll get another season. Their hands are tied.

I completely agree, and the 2 options are rather obvious.

Most likely.  This episode seemed thrown together at the last moment and there were WAY too many holes and a lot of stupidity.

I like this show a lot but I am getting sick and tired of the way they are disrespecting our flag using it as a tarp to provide shade and rain protection.

I hate cliff hangers! I like the way it ended. It was an ending, yet left things open to tell more story.

The volm, or what ever they are called, are friends of humans. The last thing they said to each other was that they are sworn to protect the indigenous life. Then again ... that might have meant humans are bad for the "indigenous" life and they are here to remove us. That could lead to finding out humans were placed on earth by one or another of the races. We could be a "herd" animal the fishheads put here to harvest later/now.
