Falling Skies…. Before the season started I said the Steven Spielberg-produced, alien invasion program was “a special kind of show,” and I still stand by that statement ten episodes later. This entire season has been spent with the Second Massachusetts trying to achieve one goal: survival. With every passing episode, we watched as Tom and his rag tag group of soldiers tried to keep everyone breathing, all in hopes that it was building up to something. And the best part? It did.

This past weekend, the first of many pieces of sci-fi media with one entity at their center was released. That one entity has a name. It’s Steven Spielberg. Yet while Super 8 was fun, the first television-based Spielberg project of the next six months can be summed up in one word: amazing. That project is the TNT drama Falling Skies. Encompassing everything that makes up the things we expect from the Spielberg brand, like a focus on characters as opposed to events, grand scale world building, and a pinch of awesome action, Falling Skies delivers on the hopes that its advertising has created. The show, which premieres this Sunday on TNT, is a refreshing spectacle to see arrive on the small screen.

Editor’s note: For those of you paying attention, Dark Blue is the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced cop show on TNT, and it should not be confused with the far more entertaining Canadian import, Rookie Blue, on ABC. The team gets word that a gun running extremist is in the planning stages of a major political assassination. So Carter, Rice, and the rest of team decide to break the extremist’s brother out of jail. But things don’t go as planned when a third member is thrown into the mix. Now it’s a race against the clock to see who will break first. Carter, the mark, or the third man who no one wanted to see.

Carter goes undercover as a porn king that wants to expand his business into pharmaceuticals in order to bust the head of an important Mexican drug cartel . Meanwhile Dean gets involved in a complicated relationship with a drug dealer’s daughter. Major developments: That depends, does the complete lack of show quality count as a major development? What worked: There was this really brief, but awesome shoot out at the start of the third act. Can we get more of that? O, and those “hookers” were pretty hot, too bad they were all dressed up in nice cloths looking like goodie goodie porn stars. What didn’t: As you can probably tell by the extremely brief “What Worked” section, this episode sucked, and sucked hard.

Dark Blue is a crime drama that airs on TNT. From the big dog himself, Jerry Bruckheimer (his first, and so far only, cable television show). Dark Blue is all about Lt. Carter Shaw, the head of a deep cover unit of the LAPD. But this is no ordinary deep cover. This unit has next to no communication with brass and operates outside of standard operating procedure. His methods may be unorthodox, but you can’t argue with his results. Season one of Dark Blue was recently released on DVD from Warner Bros. and is available exclusively online. Season two just started airing on TNT, and we take a look at the first couple of episodes after the jump.
