The Fallen Television Saga Continues

August 5th, 2007 (10:13 am)

Current Mood: energetic
Current Song: Halo by Bethany Joy Lenz

Last year, ABC Family aired a 2-hour television movie based on The Fallen book series by Thomas E. Sniegoski. This weekend, the channel is airing four new hours of the program, continuing the story of Aaron, a teenager who learns he is half-angel and may be the stuff of ancient prophecies. All six hours of the show will air today on ABC Family.

It has been said that angels walk among us . . . That they guide us . . . It could be the banker . . . The girl next door . . . the cop on the street . . . As the war wages between good and evil . . . There is a temptress that could destroy everything we believe in . . . But there is a boy, whose future is not his own . . . His destiny has been rewritten . . . This is his story . . .

Based on the series of hit books called "The Fallen" by Tom Sniegoski, FALLEN chronicles the phenomenal journey of an 18-year-old, who struggles to come to terms with his newly discovered identity as he is drawn into a world where angels -- good and evil -- walk among us. This story delves into the mythology of the fallen angels and their offspring, who are looking for the chosen one to come redeem them and allow them back into Heaven.

Orphaned at birth, all Aaron Corbett ever wanted was a normal life. But just as he was beginning to settle in with his adoptive family, a higher power steps in and changes his entire existence.

On the eve of his 18th birthday, Aaron experiences some disturbing nightmares. Then, the day's events slowly reveal to him that he now possesses some unusual talents. As he plays with his dog, Gabriel, he discovers that he can communicate with him. In a scuffle with pals at school, he freezes time. Then, in a desperate attempt to understand what is happening to him, Aaron seeks guidance from his longtime psychologist, to whom he begins to speak in multiple languages.

But it is not until he is approached by two strangers that it becomes very clear to him that his fate is greater than he ever imagined. Destined to be the liaison between angels, mortals and the powers both good and evil, Aaron must fight for his own survival and to protect those he loves.

All six hours will air on ABC Family in one fell swoop today, from 4 PM PST/EST until 10 PM PST/EST. Check your local listings. The new episodes are entitled The Time of the Redeemer, Mysterious Ways & All That, Someone Always Has to Die, and Il Gran Rifiuto, but some online or cable listings are simply calling the new installments Part 2 (The Time of the Redeemer and Mysterious Ways & All That) and Part 3 (Someone Always Has to Die and Il Gran Rifiuto).

I think they're back in print. If you check Tom Sniegoski's website, he says the first is out now in a special edition. http://www.sniegoski.com/tomnews.html

Yes, I run Tom's site. I thought Kacie was asking if they had reprinted them especially for the new series now, like they had reprinted the first book last year with Paul Wesley on the cover. :)

No worries, no worries!! We were kind of hoping that they'd reprint and republicize the lot of them, but on the other hand, the new episodes are so different from the original stories, so having show-covers that depict something different than the story contents would bug me. When Roswell was popular, they reprinted the original ten books with show covers, and some of the cast looked SO different from how the characters were described in the books that I had to laugh and shake my head. :)

I think they the ads on the TV for the three each had yet another name for them. One I remember was Fallen: Destiny

And I had seen the original and watched part 2 on Sat. I missed the very beginning though. It wasn't until Sunday that I saw the name and remembered why I watched it the first time. (Tom)

And also, was Rade S. (don't ask me to spell it) Dracula on Buffy?

Dracula was played by Rudolf Martin. Rade Serbedzija (I checked the spelling) wasn't on BtVS that I know of; however, Ivana Milicevic played Sam, Riley's wife, in As You Were.

OK, odd. I've only seen two or three things this guy has been in (and he's been in a ton of stuff) so I have no idea why that name sounded so familiar. I just looked him up and know which person he was.


Her name sounded familiar to. ;)
