We were watching the season premiere of the The Big Bang Theory and I saw the promos for a new show Scorpion, which would come on after.  It didn't look too bad so I decided to watch and see if it was any good.

I liked the overall concept.  I mean, a group of genius hackers -- what's not to like?

There are very few shows I watch on TV, but probably my favorite that I wait for each year is Falling Skies which is on TNT.

The fourth season is starting on June 22nd, and from what I've been reading and watching it looks like it's going to be a good one.  If you are not familiar with the show, it's basically about a group of survivors from a catastrophic alien invasion. Steven Spielberg is the executive producer.

Any other fans of the show?  We can use this thread f...
