I've also been watching Falling Skies, which is the Noah Wyle vehicle that could best be described as The Walking Dead meets Aliens. It's not bad, but so far it seems to suffer from being too fond of its leads to kill them off, which has made it somewhat predictable. That's unfortunate because (in some ways that I don't want to go into too much in case anyone decides to watch) the plot has some very interesting twists. I just wish that I couldn't predict who was going to die everytime they go into battle.
Finally, on a strictly materialistic note, I bought myself these the other day. (So pretteh.)
