Five Ways “Falling Skies,” TNT’s New Sci-Fi Drama, Pleasantly Surprised Me

To be completely honest, I expected something along the lines of “V” or “The Event,” which is to say high production value, good cast, but nothing that I haven’t seen before (or couldn’t see again in reruns of The X-Files). What I got instead was an intelligent, griping survivalist, post-apocalyptic drama with a hint of […]

Davies last year, and has recently been the subject of minor […]
