    Tim Goodman's review of "Falling Skies" is one of several that I've read that provide the underpinning of my enthusiastic anticipation of this show on TNT premiering Sunday.

    Here's the "about" from TNT's web site:

    Yep, this one really looks like it has some potential, set up to record the series.

    I've been looking forward to this show as well, so I was disappointed The New York Times reviewer isn't as enthusiastic as others about Falling Skies... or Outcast, which is also premiering this week-end on BBCA.

    BBCA's guide data still shows the air date as a week prior to current set this series (Outcast) link to "Both" or it won't record...

    I wish they would fix that date issue in the guide introduced by the Memorial Day Star Trek marathon...

    As I set up the SLs for these two shows I verified the BBCA issue is still in place.

    Allow me to suggest a different review for "Falling Skies", one by Mary McNamara, Los Angeles Times Television Critic which reads in part:
    My time was very much before the Spielbergian generation, but this is my kind of fantasy scifi.

    Her review and the one in my OP are among a few that give me hope.

    "Outcasts" on the other hand, I've already commented on in the thread on that show.

    I too have my fingers-crossed Mr. Hale is wrong and the other reviewers are correct, because what I know about the story so far appeals to me.

    I'll DVR it, because the Yanks/Cubs will be on. I'll watch it right after the game.

    It doesnt matter. The show will be good and we will love it but they will cancel it.
