Get Ready for the Alien Invasion

By on June 19, 2011

As Game of Thrones ends its first season, Falling Skies, a new scifi alien invasion series from TNT, premieres tonight at 9/8c.

Here’s what the critics have to say:

LA Times: There have been many films and television shows based on  … the universal desire to prove that humans, soft and increasingly teched-out, can still best the elements and a common enemy if push comes to shove. But none has captured the sweet and thrilling adrenalin rush of summer like TNT’s new series Falling Skies.

The InquirerFalling Skies is a superior breed of sci-fi.

The Hollywood Reporter: The entertainment value and suspense of Falling Skies is paced just right. You get the sense that we’ll get those answers eventually. And yet, you want to devour the next episode immediately.

The Boston HeraldDon’t look now, but Falling Skies could be a summer obsession.

The first season will comprise ten episodes, starting with a two hour event tonight in the US.

    this and Terra Nova are the two shows i’ve been waiting forever for. I’m more interested in terra nova, but i think this show might have more staying power. i enjoyed the premier and will be tuning in next week.
