Falling Skies

 
Falling Skies isn't really an alien invasion story. It doesn't deal with the actual invasion in the same way that movies such as Independence Day or War of the Worlds did. This scifi drama from TNT fits in more with such shows as Jericho and maybe even The Walking Dead or movies such as Terminator, in that the initial event has happened and mankind has suffered a devastating blow.
 

Falling Skies picks up 6 months after the invasion and tells the story of the a group of humans who are organizing the resistance and beginning to develop ways to fights back. Tom Mason, a history professor by trade is one of the people who decides to pick up the baton and run with it. His motivation comes from the fact that his middle son, Ben, was taken by the aliens and Tom will stop at nothing to get him back.

 
A history professor wouldn't normally be your first choice to head up a resistance cell, but Tom's extensive knowledge of military history gives him an insight into tactics that have been seen to work in certain situations in the past and he ends up being 2nd in command of a group of resistance fighters known as the 2nd Massachusetts. The 2nd Massachusetts is charged with protecting a large group of survivors and Tom has to juggle his attention between being a resistance leader and a father to his other two boys, Hal, and Matt.
 
With Steven Spielberg as it's executive producer, Falling Skies promises much but this is not primarily an alien story, it's a story about a family trying to survive in extraordinary circumstances. The aliens just happen to be creating those circumstances.
