Falling Skies? More Like Falling Crap
Like a lot of Sci-Fi fans, I had been eagerly awaiting TNT's new 'epic' series Falling Skies, which had its two hour debut last night.
Good God, what a disappointment.
From Executive Producer Steven Spielberg comes this lame effort that is nothing more than a cut and paste of plot pievces from at least a half dozen different 'alien invasion' moves/series. There wasn't a new element anywhere in the two hours - every situation, every line, every character had already been seen in something else.
Hell, the "50 GTO" (supposedly a GTO convertible with a .50 caliber machine gun mounted in the back), wasn't even real. It was a plain old Tempest convertible - and yes, THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.
Lame, weak, predictable waste of electrons ...
