Did you not just love Space Invaders?
Speaking of invaders from space, any thoughts out there on TNT's Falling Skies? I viewed the first hour. It certainly didn't feel terribly original. Still, there was a Battle: LA component complete with Jericho-styled character development. That always hints of potential. Some of the effects were solid for television. The creators certainly didn't leave much room for mystery, showing a good deal of alien information out of the gate including creature effects that reminded me of Ray Harryhausen, and that's a positive.
The effects may not have been as impressive as those on V, but they were grittier and less sterile. The set up is war on Earth. Over at The Walking Dead they're battling zombies and in Falling Skies aliens. These groups really should combine forces.
