Summary of "The Complete 1st Season - You Won't Find Chicken Little Here": Though the story of an alien invasion is far from being a new idea, Falling Skies introduced some new elements to the idea, with kids being taken and controlled by the aliens. I liked the characters in the show, and all the episodes moved very quickly. I also burned through them all, watching all 10 episodes in a single day (the first time that's happened in a long, long time). I also liked that the episodes continued right after the end of the previous episode. There were no gaps in the story, it just flowed.
I thought this Blu-ray set was quite good as well. It's not loaded with bonus material, but what's here is good. I would have preferred to hear from a few more people in the commentary tracks, and many of the featurettes were pretty short. The audio is a disappointment, but that probably has more to do with the initial production than the Blu-ray release; it's still surprising that they didn't provide more punch.
