In episode 02 of Berserker Cast we break down the Falling Skies season 4 premiere episode entitled, “Ghost in the Machine.” Like most of the other Falling Skies season premiere’s, “Ghost in the Machine” took the show in a whole new direction. We talk about all of the changes that occurred including the new groups that the main characters are now with, how they might be able to overcome their situation, and when some of them will reunite. We also talk about the new information we were...

In episode 3 of Berserker Cast, we zero in on what is going on with each group divided by the events of the season 4 premiere. Some very interesting and important information came to light from the Overlord overseeing the gulag where Tom, Weaver, Hal and Tector are being kept. What does this mean for the resistance? What do the Espheni have planned for the humans? The groups have begun to overlap in subtle ways, too, and we discuss what implications these overlaps have for those affected. Now...

In episode 6 of Berserker Cast we talk a lot about how we perceived this episode to fit into the whole of the season. Season four will have a total of 12 episodes, which is 2 more than the previous three seasons, and yet this episode seemed very much like a "filler" episode. It is difficult for both of us to find much fault in the writing itself, because even with slower paced episodes there is a lot of good writing within, but we can't help to feel like there is something big coming...

In episode 7 of Berserker Cast, we discuss the midpoint of season 4 of Falling Skies entitled "Door Number Three". Is Lexi human (door number one)? Is Lexi an Espheni (door number two)? Or... what is behind door number three? The common feeling from us and other listeners is that Lexi is attempting to be both human and Espheni, not to destroy one or the other, but to unite the races. This is the front that the re-education camps are promoting, but based off of sinister conversations...

In episode 8 of Berserker Cast we waste no time jumping into the escalating events of Lexi's haven-no-more. Now out of her cocoon, Lexi denounces the human race and leaves, killing a fan favorite in the process, and the 2nd Mass lays vulnerable to approaching Espheni forces. While Tom and Anne try to juggle the changes occurring in their daughter against the reality that is her total and inevitable betrayal, Hal takes a journey of his own--again--and comes around to seeing things his father's...

In episode 9 of Berserker Cast, Emilee has a difficult task. She must convince Darrell that this episode didn't totally suck. And, indeed, by the end of their conversation Darrell raised his rating from a 6 to a 7.5 (which, Emilee reminds us, is a pretty normal rating for her). From Emily Dickinson to Dante, Emilee draws in some literary parallels that were significant to her, while still joining in with some of Darrell's nitpicks about things that seemed a bit forced. The least favorite part...

In episode 10 of Berserker Cast, which is technically episode 9 of season 4 of Falling Skies, we spend a lot of time talking about the state of the relationships of a lot of the main characters. With an increase in action in the last few episodes, this episode felt like a way to calm things down right before another big fight. But while tensions are easing between Tom and Anne, culminating in their punctual nuptials, the same cannot be said for Hal and Maggie, nor Pope and Sara. Tom and Anne...

In this very special edition of Berserker Cast we had the honor and the pleasure of speaking with Doug Jones, whom we all know best right now as Cochise on Falling Skies! His resume is expansive and colorful, embodying quite well the man himself. But we had a chance to lift up the foam mask and talk with the man who brings other-worldly creatures to life. We spend a great deal of time discussing Cochise and his role on Falling Skies, how Doug got involved in the project, and what he perceives...

In episode 12 of Berserker Cast, we discuss Falling Skies Season 4 Episode 10 entitled "Drawing Straws" where names are chosen from a hollowed out piece of wood to determine which (un)lucky two will ride in the alien space craft to the moon. While no one is surprised by the end result, it was an interesting road getting them to where they need to be. The discussion we have circles around Epictetus (or Epic-Tardis if you're Darrell) and we look at how lessons in stoicism have been...

In episode 13 of Berserker Cast we talk about the penultimate season 4 episode "Space Oddity" which consists of Lexi's plea to take Ben's place on the mission to the moon with Tom. We discuss our perceptions of Lexi, whether we believe her or not, and how that ebbed and flowed as the episode went on. Did you find it easy or difficult to trust Lexi? Despite being rather relaxed on the action front, this episode helped to really draw out the human in Lexi and reveal the scared little...

In episode 14 of Berserker Cast we take a long hard look at the finale episode of season 4 of Falling Skies before speculating on just what the writers have in store for us next season! So much happens in this finale, we see the skitterization machine put into effect against the 2nd Mass, we see Tom take down Scorch, and we see Lexi take one for humanity (or...does she?). The mysterious fog substance that flowed out of the skitterization machine (we need a better name for this... Flower Pod?...

And we're back! After an extremely long hiatus, Darrell and I (Emilee) are excited to jump back into our ongoing discussions of the wonderful TNT post-apocalyptic alien drama Falling Skies and all of its Berserkery goodness. In this episode of Berserker Cast, we take some time to talk about all the things season 4 did well, all of the things season 4 could have done without, and look ahead at the season to come.

Welcome back to Berserker Cast! In episode 16, Darrell and I (Emilee) discuss the season 5 premiere of Falling Skies entitled "Find Your Warrior". This episode originally aired on Sunday June 28, 2015 and drew in a mere 2 million viewers. This is down significantly from the previous season's premiere, but can hardly be unexpected due to season 4's rocky arc. If you've been listening to Berserker Cast regularly, you'll know that I'm the first to defend this series and the story lines,...

Sometimes motivational speakers will ask their audience if they're hungry for victory or success. Metaphorically, this is a useful analogy, but there is a significant difference in being hungry versus being hungry. When dinner rolls around and I'm asked whether I'm "hungry", I usually say Yes because I haven't eaten a meal in five hours, not because my stomach is growling. I've never been truly hungry, not in the way that hunger pains seize a great percentage of this earth's...

In this 18th episode of Berserker Cast, Darrell and I (Emilee) take a look at Falling Skies season 5 episode 3 entitled "Hatchlings". Aside from being a little disappointed by the misleading nature of the episode title, based on the word as it was used in season 4, both Darrell and I were very happy with this installment of the post-apocalyptic drama! Tension between the characters was excellent, we got some great information about the alien species communicating with Tom, and, as...

Berserker Cast has a reason to celebrate with this next installment of the podcast! We got a real life reunion of the surviving members of the Berserkers, and though it was under less than ideal circumstances, Darrell and I feel validated in the namessake of this podcast! We discuss Season 5 Episode 4 "Pope Breaks Bad", which originally aired on July 19, 2015. For all the havoc Pope could have wreaked, I was surprised at the more methodical approach he took to raising hell. Since the...

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...

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...

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...

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....

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...

Welcome to Beserker Cast! If you’ve landed on this page, we assume you are a fan of the TNT show Falling Skies, or perhaps curious as to what exactly this new podcast is that Golden Spiral Media is producing. For the first time in GSM’s existence, a podcast will jump into a show after its pilot episode. There is a really good reason for this.  Honestly. Last summer, Darrell and Emilee co-hosted the TV Talk show for Falling Skies, but as the podcast network chose not to pick up the show in...

In episode 4 of Berserker Cast, we once again break down our discussion by talking about each different group separated by the events of the premiere. Tom and his group have come up with a plan to not just escape, but to break down the enemy's fence trapping them all inside the ghetto. The plan itself seems too well conceived and planned out for it to go smoothly, however, and we talk about the various obstacles the characters encounter as they try to follow through on the elaborate plan. Plus,...

In episode 5 of Berserker Cast we found it a little difficult to keep our discussions of all the groups separate! Finally we're seeing some reunions across the board that are bringing our big family back together and we love it! Even though Tom and Weaver have split from Hal, they've reunited with Matt and, in exchange, Hal is on his way to be reunited with Ben, Maggie, Anne and the Loyal Followers of Lexi Glass-Mason. We know better than to hope for a long-term reunion, but we at least know...
