      Falling Skies Second Watch


      Quick review of Falling Skies Second Watch



      I’ve now watched two episodes of the TNT web series Falling Skies Second Watch.  Wil Wheaton is the host of the show, which is following the format of Chris Hardwick’s Talking Dead show.  Wil and a studio audience watches the show live, then has a chat with stars from the show.  The premier episode was 45 minutes long and featured the whole cast.  The first shock to me was finding out that Jessy Schram plays the character of Karen, and not Brittany Snow.  I watched the entire first season assuming the girl from American Dreams was on this show, but she is a different girl.  Check these pictures out:

      The second episode featured Peter Shinkoda, Colin Cunningham, and Mpho Koaho along with the writer and is only 15 minutes long.  I would assume this is going to be the format from now on.  

      Wil is a great host.  He is conversational and friendly throughout, rarely fawning.  As an actor himself, he can talk to the other actors and get real conversation from them, not just the basic platitudes and moronic quotes.  Having the secondary actors rather than the main cast, gives the show a much breezier feel.  They are open to talk, and not jaded by the talk show format.  Everyone seems excited to be there and share their excitement of the show with Wil,each other, and the live audience.  

      The questions from the audience are hit and miss, as live audience members are want to be.  I think I like the Talking Dead format a little better where it is just fans geeking out over the show.  But if you are a Falling Skies fan, or a fan of Wil’s, you should check out the show here.
