Sunday TV Picks: Spielberg's 'Falling Skies' begins Season 2
TV picks for Sunday, June 17, 2012, include the second-season premiere of "Falling Skies" on TNT and the second-season finale of "The Killing" on AMC.
Tonight in Prime Time
It's the second season for this sci-fi series from executive producer Steven Spielberg. Noah Wyle plays a former history professor Tom Mason who ends up leading a Boston-born resistance movement after an alien attack. It can be pretty creepy stuff, especially when the Skitters show up. Season premiere, 9 p.m. Sunday on TNT (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
