- Noah Wyle
This week's DVD rental is Falling Skies ....
Falling Skies is an American science fiction dramatic television series created by Robert Rodat and produced by Steven Spielberg. Set six months into a world devastated by an alien invasion, the series stars Noah Wyle as Tom Mason, a former Boston University history professor who becomes the second-in-command of the 2nd Massachusetts Militia Regiment, a group of civilians and fighters fleeing post-apocalyptic Boston.
I've only watched a bit so far. The beginning scenes are reminiscent of the footage in The Terminator of Kyle's post-apocalyptic life under the machines (perhaps an homage?). Noah Wyle is doing a good job as the history teacher who applies his knowledge of past wars to the present situation, and it's interesting to see parts of Boston, but I'm not sure I'm going to keep watching - I think I liked V a bit better.
