... Falling Skies

(Sunday, 9/8c, TNT)

This crackerjack alien-invasion thriller, launching with a two-hour premiere, is perfect summer sci-fi escapism, the sort of show V should have been. It thrusts us directly into the trenches of a war between marauding aliens (who don't even try to mask their spidery selves) and a band of underdog human resistance fighters, led by a very appealing Noah Wyle as a family man/history professor who appreciates the significance of leading this charge on the same Massachusetts soil where an earlier Revolutionary War occurred. If this well-produced piece of popcorn populism isn't a hit, I give up.
