Finished Falling Skies

I sure am glad that their is a DVR these days. For those who did catch the series Falling Skies and those who did not here is the jist. Falling Skies tells the story of the aftermath of a global invasion by several races of extraterrestrials (including the lizard-like Skitters; a race of seemingly humanoid grey-skinned beings that seem to be their commanders; and mechanical Attack Drones called mechs) that neutralizes the world's power grid and technology, quickly destroys the combined militaries of all the world's countries, and apparently kills over 90% of the human population within a few days. The invasion and the objectives of the Aliens is not explained, though the aliens try to round up children between 8 and 16 and attach a metallic obedience device onto (and into) their spines. Forcibly removing the device instantly kills the child. The story picks up six months after the invasion and follows a group of survivors who band together to fight back.

 I for one have always been a fan of alien takeover and such,  but I did enjoy every episode in this TNT series. It has been a while a Sci-Fi TV series has caught my attention this much. For those whom did not see the series, and wonder what happens after the aliens do invade earth and how we may resist them.

This series has so many layers (like an onion) in this series. There are so many points of view and different people are affected on the decisions from the upper ranks of the group.

How far whould people last with no electricty? So of the people that I work with 2 minutes:)
For those who did see the series, I am curious on what your thoughts are on the Falling Skies series?
