Falling Skies: Ol' Fashioned Alien Invasion Goodness

Let's not beat around the bush: Aliens are out there, and they want to suck the marrow from our bones. For every fairy-tale story about a cute Reese's Pieces-chomping Extra Terrestrial (totally bogus!), there are ten soon-to-be historically accurate movies and television series showing us what will really happen when the aliens arrive—human kebabs headlining the menu at an out-of-this-world BBQ.

TNT's upcoming Falling Skies is being dubbed an epic alien-invasion series, and has the executive-production power of Steven Spielberg behind it. In Falling Skies, we dumb humans will once again assume that aliens coming to visit us in flying warships will result in a friendly intergalactic meet-and-greet. Wrong. Noah Wyle (E.R.) stars as Tom Mason, a man who's determined to start a resistance force that opposes the militant invaders after an attack wipes out most of the human population. Think Red Dawn with xenomorphs instead of Communists.

Check out the trailer:

What do you think? When the aliens arrive, will you be welcoming them with open arms, or will you be stocking up on arms, ready to blow their brains out?
