[This is a review of the DVD edition. Both editions have the same content]
Warning: Some potentially spoilers ahead, but nothing that should be surprising, and generally all within the first 15 minutes…
The second season of Falling Skies picks up three months after Tom Mason boarded the alien ship in the final scene of Season One. The 2nd Mass has fought in the devastating Battle of Fitchburg, with both sides suffering losses. Tom has been help captive by the Overlord, where Tom learns that the aliens don’t wish to talk or have peace with the humans. He is let go with several other captives, but all the other captives are killed – he however is mysteriously let go, and travels back to meet up with the 2nd Mass. In the meantime, everyone’s favorite renegade Pope is given command of a group of misfits called the Berserkers, an undisciplined group who take on some of the more dangerous missions, tolerated as a necessity by Colonel Weaver but certainly not trusted. Sanctuary fans will recognize Ryan Robbins as a member of the Berserkers.
