Before tonight’s episode of “Falling Skies” came to a close, we definitely felt that the show really had no chance of tying things together perfectly before the show came to an end. Maybe after the finale wraps, many of you will feel like something is missing … or at least like the show could have done with another batch of episodes to sort of stretch out some of the final episodes, even if it was only a small handful of episodes.
So do we think the show needed another batch of episodes in order to tell the story? That’s up to the viewer. We feel like it would’ve been nice, and we’re sure that some others out there would feel the same.
However, at the same exact time there is something to be said for having a show leave you wanting more, and we do feel very much like it is better to end it early than end when a show starts to get tired. While there have been frustrating moments at times during season 5, we do think that this has been the most intense batch of episodes in a long time.
Ultimately, there’s never going to be a simple answer as to why season 5 was the final season of the show, or why certain decisions were made. For now, what we want to know from you is this: Should there have been more “Falling Skies” beyond this season? Vote in the poll!
