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.

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?
