In TNT’s new series FALLING SKIES, the survivors of an alien invasion of Earth band together to fight the marauding extraterrestrials. Sometimes, dealing with fellow humans can be almost as challenging as battling the ETs, as evidenced by the interactions between teacher-turned-freedom fighter Tom Mason, played by Noah Wyle, and experienced soldier Captain Dan Weaver, played by Will Patton. The South Carolina-born Patton has appeared in a huge amount of feature films and television series, including NO WAY OUT, 24, THE CLIENT, VR.5, REMEMBER THE TITANS and THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES, as well as many stage roles. In person, the actor […]Read On »

Stars: Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Maxim Knight, Connor Jessup, Sechelle Gabriel, Mpho Koaho, Peter Shinkoda, Colin Cunningham and Sarah Sanguin Carter Writer: Melinda Hsu Taylor Director: Fred Toye Network: TNT, Sunday nights Original Telecast: July 3, 2011 Okay, so three episodes is the limit for me on how a new series can take a limited story structure and milk it until it’s unbearable. FALLING SKIES has finally exceeded my limit. With “Grace” we’re stuck with another episode where Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) has to go on some sort of mission, avoid Skitters (the aliens), deal with […]Read On »

With the movie […]Read On »

With a lot of the exposition out of the way, the show now gets into a groove showing the pitfalls and dangers about living with an alien overlord over your […]Read On »

What else can be added, that we haven’t already seen done before – and better? Still, the new TNT series FALLING SKIES hopes to stake out its own special place in […]Read On »

Aliens seem to really like to target Earth for invasion. From the reptilian baddies from V, the human ship suckers in SKYLINE and the straight-out annihilators in BATTLE: LA, it’s been a pretty brutal battle between earth vs. the extraterrestrials. Now, TNT adds their own take on this science-fiction premise with the June 19 debut of their new series FALLING SKIES from executive producer Steven Spielberg. The series picks up six months after the invasion as a disparate group of people band together for survival and to stand and fight for humanity’s survival. The series stars Noah Wyle, Moon Bloodgood […]Read On »
