Falling Skies

I just caught the pilot episode for this TV show and it seems to have a lot going for it. Good acting, good actors and decent special effects. Again, Earth is attacked by aliens and humans fight a resistance war in rag-tag groups of militia like armies.

First real episode is tonight at 10PM EST on TNT.

I have to say, for a television series, it is pretty good. At least, it's a thousand times better then shit that's been on TV lately.

The acting isn't bad(or at least as good as one can expect for a television series), the aliens are pretty good, plot is believable:



I can see this occupying my time for quite a while. :D

Average plot, acting and script ranging from bad to good, characterization is average, special effects good.

Nothing has blown my mind yet, but I can give it a few more episodes.

"If there is any primarch who should have never been found, its Lorgar. Why? Two words. Hours Hersey"
"It was a 1......why was it a 1!"
Yes, I do play orks, yes, I do have quite a few boys on the table, and yes, it does take me a while to move them...got a problem with that...

I haven't been blown away...yet. Nothing particularly exceptional, but I'll continue to watch just for shits and giggles.
