I expect Falling Skies
will limit its space opera stuff to the Grand Intentions of the Aliens. The Aliens may be involved in all kinds of galactic shenangians, but we're gonna be sticking with the Second Mass all through the years and maybe visiting motherships for season finales and the like.
sounds like Alien Nation
or Men In Black
or something in the middle of those two extremes.
Anyway I loved Source Code
, which had a little nod to Quantum Leap
(an obvious model for a TV version in retrospect) but am wary since apparently the TV deal took Duncan Jones by surprise.
Optimistic about American Gods
because HBO, although I do get the feeling I should read the novel to see whether that optimism has anything on it. Defiance
more lukewarm but Rockne will mean that I might look at the pilot unless everyone says it is terrible. Zero Hour
rubs me the wrong way. Sure, esoteric religious material can be blended well with science fiction - just look at PKD - but I got a hunch this is far more Da Vinci Code than Vast Active Living Intelligence System.
