*** He shoots his argument in the foot when making comparisons like that, its the same argument the militia types in the US talk about popular revolt. Yes a small guerilla force has held off better armies in the past but there were very specific advantages they had that the human rebels here do not. In the case of the American Revolutionaries, they mostly forget about the part where France shippped them weapons and some soldiers, but also used their fleet to blockade certain ports to force the British out. The Vietcong, who lost almost every encounter they had with the US military, had siginificant training and supply help from both China and Russia. The Afghan mujahedeen had alot of American help in getting the Soviets out of their country as well. In the world of Falling Skies, no such help is coming from abroad, they are on their own. They have no manufacturing or food production facilities, so their weapons and supplies are scavenged, and the canned food in existence cannot possibly feed them forever, the ammo laying around would certainly be gone long before the series starts and the guns would be breaking down as well. Without a friendly force supplying them, or at least feeding them ... they would all die or surrender real soon.

* If the Espheni invaded earth back in the 6th century, how was a space-faring army defeated by "savages" with swords and arrows? Furthermore, how did no one document a global alien invasion, especially in times from which there is plenty of documentation.

** It is implied if not outright stated that Scorch had gone rogue on his personal revenge trip, it is possible that he had exhausted all of his resources.

* What happened to the Espheni's motivation? The first Overlord stated that Earth was just in the long line of the empire's conquering, Scorch stated in the second episode of Season 4 that the Espheni came to Earth to escape from a more dangerous enemy themselves, ''and'' [[spoiler: the Espheni Queen states that the only reason for invading Earth was to get revenge for her sister, and it was premeditated the whole time.]] Which is it?!

If the Espheni literally have no power left after the destruction of their power core and Volm are still a space-faring race, how is this even a war anymore?

*So the Dornian weapon doesn't affect Ben's spikes then? Aside from it's the last episode and they wanted to end happy... why not?

* Just how in the [[WebVideo/HellsingUltimateAbridged blood-soaked protestant Hell]] did Mason's needle penetrate Scorch's armor, ''which has been shown to block bullets'' beforehand? And how did Scorch remotely think it was a good idea to track down Mason ''[[WhatAnIdiot without any guards]]''?

** A year isn't ''that'' far away. Most of these kids are old enough to remember life before the invasion, and it's not like they'd magically forget all that stuff in just a year's time. If the show jumps ahead to the point when most of the children seen on screen were born after the invasion, then the jokes would seem weird.
