Battle: Los Angeles (review)

Battle: Los Angeles may be about invasion, but it’s not about aliens: it’s about us. This isn’t science fiction: It’s a bleak fantasy about karma being a bitch. It’s about collective cultural guilt. Looked at from that angle, it’s fascinating.

if only humans and Silurians could work together…

…we could kick the V’s off Planet Earth in two 45-minute episodes. With the Doctor’s help, of course. Doctor Who: “Cold Blood” is on BBC One tonight, and on BBC America, “Amy’s Choice.” Don’t spoil “Cold Blood” here! (We’re already spoiling “Amy’s Choice” here.) My blogging coming asap tomorrow.
