    BC 25 – S5E10 – “Reborn” Review

    Thank you joining us for the last, and lengthy, installment of Berserker Cast! Our feedback segment in this episode spanned nearly the amount of time as our episode discussion, and we were absolutely thrilled! We got to hear from many people with a wide range of opinions, so whether you loved or hated the Falling Skies finale, we think that you will find someone in the feedback section who resonates with your sentiments.



    This podcast covers the series finale of Falling Skies, season 5 episode 10 entitled "Reborn". It originally aired on August 30, 2015. The episode opened in the same manner as the series premiere did, with a monologue as the drawings of children were displayed on the screen. I'm not going to lie, Darrell and I were pretty hard on this episode. Though it bore many elements that we wanted out of this finale, many of the events were confusing and disjointed. Read more...

    BC 24 – S5E9 – Reunion Review

    The penultimate episode of Falling Skies was chalk full of surprises! From the Dornia ship to Lexi's return to Anthony regaining his sanity, our favorite alien invasion drama television show really feels like it's coming to a close. It won't end before everything comes to a head, though, and we know things need to get a little worse before they can get better. In this installment of Berserker Cast, Darrell and Emilee (me), discuss season 5 episode 9 entitled: "Reunion." Read More...

    BC 23 – S5E8 – Stalag 14th Virginia Review

    BC 23 – S5E8 – Stalag 14th Virginia Review

    Welcome back, Berserkers! It's time for some discussion about Falling Skies season 5 episode 8 entitled "Stalag 14th Virginia". This episode originally aired on August 16, 2015. I remember reading this episode title several weeks ago and groaning because of the word stalag. It's a German term from the World Wars, used to describe a prisoner of war internment camp. To me, it sounded like stagnant... Like, literally. This episode would put a halt on the advancement to Washington D.C.



    Unfortunately, I wasn't wrong. I was wrong, however, about not believing I'd enjoy the episode. Putting aside the placement of this episode within the final season, I enjoyed the drama very much. All of the characters were in their finest form, Tom is letting go of his rage and embracing the hero within, and now the 2nd Massachusetts has more soldiers to fight with them. Read more...

    BC 22 – S5E7 – Everybody Has Their Reasons Review

    BC 22 – S5E7 – Everybody Has Their Reasons Review

    If you are reading this, you are a faithful fan and we applaud your resilience! This is Berserker Cast Episode 22 covering Falling Skies season 5 episode 7 entitled "Everybody Has Their Reasons". This episode originally aired on August 9, 2015. Only three episodes remain in the final season of this post-apocalyptic alien drama and many fans are wondering why we are where we are.



    It is not our custom to bash Falling Skies. Both Darrell and I (Emilee) repeat very often that an episode of Falling Skies is better than no episode of Falling Skies, but even that mantra is challenged with this seemingly ill-timed episode. There's nothing wrong with the episode from a production or direction standpoint, it's extremely well produced and the drama is tight, but it's events within the larger story is puzzling.

    BC 21 – S5E6 – Respite Review

    BC 21 – S5E6 – Respite Review

    Welcome back, Berserkers! In this episode of Berserker Cast, Darrell and I (Emilee) discuss the sixth episode of the final season of Falling Skies entitled "Respite". Pronounced reh-spit for all you Americans. Then again if you spell favorite like favourite you may as well prefer to pronounce it reh-spyt.Up to you! Either way, the word means the same thing: (n.) a short period of rest or relief from something difficult or unpleasant.



    Perhaps that definition alone should have been enough to indicate this was not a dream sequence. Both Darrell and I were wondering for a lot of the episode whether Tom's experiences were a dream-state, like Strange Brew from season 3. There were indicators along the way that it was not, such as Hal finding Tom's jacket; but there were also moments where Tom seemed surprised that his caretakers knew something, like he seemed surprised that Grandpa Willie knew his name at the dinner table.

    BC 20 – S5E5 – Non-Essential Personnel Review

    BC 20 – S5E5 – Non-Essential Personnel Review

    In this 20th episode of Berserker Cast, Darrell and I (Emilee) take a look at Falling Skies Season 5 Episode 5, entitled Non-Essential Personnel. This was quite an interesting discussion as Darrell and I found ourselves literally on opposite sides of the same coin.



    Interestingly, a feedbacker mentions they were wary about this episode due to the synopsis, which sounded a bit like the episode last year where Tom, Weaver and Matt encounter the brothers in the woods on the way back from rescuing Matt. It just so happens that episode was the fifth of season four, just as this is the fifth episode of season five. Both episodes felt like they stalled the overall progression of their respective seasons. They did little to advance the storyline, and instead provide an extended commentary on the state and nature of humanity. Read more...
