I've been running a poll for the last few weeks asking whether not Falling Skies exceeded, met, or fell short of your expectations. With over a hundred votes tallied so far, I figured it's worth archiving the poll and putting up a new one.
Before we get to the new one, I'd like to discuss the results of the last one. With 53% of the voters saying the show exceeded expectations and 31% saying the show met expectations, I'd say the first season definitely delivered on the hype that lead up to the show. I, personally, voted that the show met expectations. Why didn't it exceed them? Well, mostly because I came into the show with incredibly high hopes and it'd be nearly impossible for the show to actually do better than what I was anticipating. I figured there would be no way the show could actually live up to my expectations, but it did just that. If you haven't voted or still want to vote in the poll, you can still vote via the poll archives. I'll leave voting open for the poll during the break.
So with that poll in the archives, I've put up a new one. This new poll asks who your favorite character was during season 1. Will you choose a major character like Tom or Weaver? Or will you go for a character that had significantly less screen time like Dai? To vote, simply head over to the sidebar, select the character, and click "vote". Feel free to discuss your selection in the comments below - maybe you'll be able to convince some people to change their vote to your favorite.
