Things I'm excited about...

1. A new TV series on TNT that will premiere in June called "Falling Skies."  According to the website,
"FALLING SKIES opens in the chaotic aftermath of an alien attack that has left most of the world completely incapacitated. In the six months since the initial invasion, the few survivors have banded together outside major cities to begin the difficult task of fighting back. Each day is a test of survival as citizen soldiers work to protect the people in their care while also engaging in an insurgency campaign against the occupying alien force...FALLING SKIES focuses on the resilience of the survivors and their determination to maintain their humanity when all else has been destroyed. It is a tale of endurance, commitment and courage in which everyday people are called upon to become heroes. They may be outmatched, outnumbered and outgunned, but nothing can beat the human spirit. Most of all, the series is about the ties that bind people together in the most difficult of circumstances."
I haven't seen anyone online mention this new show yet - probably because it's weeks away still - but it looks fantastic!  And I loves me some Noah Wylie!

2. New Movies!!  There are several movies just out and coming soon that I'm excited about.  I've already mentioned Scream 4.  In addition to that, I can't wait to see Water for Elephants.  I'm also looking forward to seeing Hanna, Rio, and The Conspirator (Directed by Robert Redford).

3. HBO's Game of Thrones.  Episode 1 was fantastic and amazing, and was a perfect introduction to the world of Westeros and the multitudes of characters involved in the story.  It was also an unqualified success, drawing over 4.2 million viewers on it's premiere night, prompting HBO to order a second season after airing only one episode!! 

4. I've almost finished "The Gandalara Cycle: #7 The River Wall," which is the concluding novel in the series.  (Hopefully I'll have time to get some reviews up sometime during the next week).  Once that's finished, the book on my TBR List is "Changes" by Jim Butcher, which is Book #12 of The Dresden Files, a series that I am enormously fond of, so I'm really looking forward to starting that.
