Everything I thought I knew about TV is wrong. Seriously. On Sunday, the two-hour premiere of Falling Skies
aired, and an alien apocalypse descended upon the fair city of Boston; I
didn't notice, but apparently 5.9 million viewers did. It's not hard
for me to think of reasons why this show was so off my radar.
Our fair city has had its legal comedies, police procedurals and supernatural dramas, but
this month Boston finally gets its own bleak apocalypse. TNT's Falling Skies is set in Boston, six
months after an alien invasion that leaves humanity incurably crippled.
Those that remain have banded together to form a resistance group, united
under the common goals of survival.
