Spielberg Continues His Love Affair with Aliens

Are you a sci-fi dork who’s been jonesing for a good alien-invasion series ever since BSG went off the air? Or maybe you’re a right-wing gun nut who’s looking for a healthier outlet for your paranoid survivalist fantasies. Either way, TNT‘s “Falling Skies” is the show for you.

With Steven Spielberg acting as executive producer, the show stars Noah Wyle as a college professor who ends up leading a group of resistance fighters after an alien invasion. I’m not sure what’s more ridiculous: the fact that these aliens, with their advanced technology, have trouble conquering our planet, or the idea of a college professor doing something useful outside of academia.

Zing! Take that, Professor Knapp! Who’s “plagiarizing” now? (IO9)
