New TV Show: Falling Skies (TNT)

Falling Skies is an American science fiction television drama that picks up six months into a world devastated by an alien invasion. The aftermath decimated most of the human population. Brainwashing harnesses are surgically inserted into children's spines, which forces them to serve the alien rulers. Few survivors have banded together across major cities to protect the remaining human civilians and fight back against the alien invaders. Tom Mason, a former Boston University history professor, becomes the second-in-command of the 2nd Massachusetts Militia Regiment, a group of fighters fleeing post-apocalyptic Boston.

The first season premiered on June 19, 2011 with 10 episodes. It debuted to 5.9 million viewers, making it cable's best launched series in 2011. The second season will premiere on June 17, 2012. A DreamWorks Television production, it is produced by Steven Spielberg and is broadcast on TNT Channel. I provide the trailer below:
