Falling Skies: The Complete Third Season on Blu-ray Disc Set Review

The third season of the TNG original series Falling Skies was the best yet because it gave the viewer insight into the invaders they were fighting as well as intrigue from the new aliens who appear benevolent, but still encounter distrust from characters within the group. Noah Wyle is sharp as Tom, a freedom fighter, who was once a history teacher and finds himself as both a representative of the 2nd Mass and an elected political official in Charleston. The series costars Moon Bloodgood, and Will Patton. The season features recurring Guest Stars Robert Sean Leonard as a scientist with severe agoraphobia recruited to the cause and the one and only Doug Jones once again buried deep under makeup as the benevolent Volm alien representative nicknamed "Cochise."

Falling Skies is presented in a 1080p full HD (1.78:1) aspect ratio across two Blu-ray Discs with English DTS-HD lossless audio and English Subtitles for the Deaf and Hearing Impaired as well as Spanish, Portuguese, and Thai Language Subtitles. Several documentaries and multipart featurettes are included and the discs come housed in a Blue BD case within a glossy cardboard slip. A coupon for a limited time only free Ultraviolet HD Digital Copy is included as well.

It is important to have patience with Falling Skies as it tends to start slow, but then always develops rapidly to an action packed conclusion.

Falling Skies: The Complete Third Season is available now Blu-ray Disc at retailers on and offline courtesy of Warner Home Video. The fourth season is now airing on TNT with the premiere having aired on Sunday, June 22, 2014 at 10pm (ET/PT).
