Falling Skies’ Noah Wyle Delivers Powerful Performance in “Search & Recover,” Making Him the Most Valuable Actor For Episode 305
This week’s episode of Falling Skies showed a divided 2nd Mass. As Weaver and Co. searched for Anne and Alexis, Peralta investigated the Volm weapon. Meanwhile, Tom Mason and John Pope walked away from a plane crash, and tried to evade the Skitters hunting them. Though these scenes weren’t action-packed (aside from a couple shootouts), they still managed to pack quite a punch. Even though Colin Cunningham and Noah Wyle both gave outstanding performances this week, it was Tom Mason revealing pieces of his past, facing certain death, and hallucinating a happy ending that earned Noah Wyle the Most Valuable Actor Award for “Search & Recover.” (More…)
Falling Skies Episode 3×06, “Be Silent and Come Out” – Sunday, July 7th, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)
For most of the shows we cover, we find each episode has an actor that stands out more than the others – one who absolutely owned the episode. This vote isn’t about the other actors not delivering or being any less valuable, but as we mentioned, it’s about who stands out in the episode. It could be a combination of great writing, delivered lines, emotional execution; basically, if it gives us goosebumps or moves us in any way it’s getting a vote. We’ve found that, depending on the show, it’s a lot tougher to see who got our vote. This means that for every episode we, at TVAfterDark, will decide who gets our MVA vote. An actor can be voted several times within a season, but only ONE can be chosen in each episode. You can see our MVA’s here.
