Falling Skies

Buy Falling Skies in the USA - or Buy Falling Skies in the UK

Alien invasions are a bit like buses. You're waiting ages for one, and then suddenly, along rolls a whole fleet of them. Following fast on the film Invasion LA, comes a new TV series from the USA, Falling Skies.

I like the idea about the aliens pulse bombing all our electronics. The quickest way to send humanity back into the stone age - even without invading - would be to fry anything that uses electricity. See how we fare with just-in-time deliveries to supermarkets then!

As always, you have to ask yourself, why. The 'why' should always be the biggest question that needs answering in an alien invasion tale. All that distance. All that effort. Why? And it better now be 'just because'.

Anyway, watch the trailer and make your own mind up!
