Anticipating "Falling Skies" on TNT

Only one day left to wait.  "Falling Skies" premieres on TNT tomorrow night.  It looks like fun.  Aliens come down and wipe out everything.  With no cities and no electricity, those who survive form a resistance.  It looks like what "V" (2009) could have been had they skipped the "We come in peace" bit, and if it weren't so stupid.  It also looks a lot like the Battle: Los Angeles movie, except not from the point of view of civilians instead of Marines.  I wonder if it will be as good as "The Walking Dead" on AMC.

Stay tuned for a review of the first episode in the next couple of days.

In the mean time, you can find out more information on TNT's official Falling Skies website.  There are lots of goodies there.  My favorite is the "Last Defense" video.  If you put in an address, and if it's in Google maps, you can watch that house destroyed by aliens.  Make sure to put in your favorite neighbor's address--you know--the neighbor with the perfect yard.
