Falling Skies Season 1, Episode 1

Episode  1 – Live and Learn

Falling Skies is a new series on TNT that I am very glad to have found. (Via my friend Pete – thanks Pete.)

It starts off pretty heavy, with children talking about thier lost families and loved ones. So heavy that I was starting to get worried that it wasn’t something I could watch with my ten year old.  But it only lasted the first couple of minutes and after they set the scene the storyline moved forward.

Its kind of a mix of the old “V” alien series mixed with the reality TV show “The Colony”.  We ended up buying the series pass on iTunes and plan on watching an episode a night until we catch up.


Halfway to the Grave – Jeaniene Frost

Halfway to the Grave by Jeaniene Frost (4 Out of 5 Graves)

So what do you get if you take a decent story, a good sprinkle of sex (disguised under the context of love of course), with a fast paced plot?

A great read.  I highly recommend the book if you like a little bit of sultry content mixed in with your vampires.  Its a bit more graphic than the True Blood Series, but in a good way if you like that sort of thing.  My suggestion would be not read it while on the bus though, you might poke someone by accident.  

Not recommended for Twilight fans.  Its a little more than you can handle.

Zombie Survival Guide – Max Brooks

The Zombie Survival Guide – Max Brooks (1 out of 5 Graves)

My opinion, he worried too much about the mechanics of what makes a zombie. He should have stuck to the survival and scenerios of how to get by.  It felt like he padded the book with lots of fake science.  Parts of it were really good, but I think it could have been cut in half, or even a third, and just been an awesome field guide.
