Excited that Falling Skies got picked up for a second season... It's been okay, but I feel like it's one of those series that needs time to develop.

And the netflix price increase won't bother me so long as it means newer and better movies will be added to the instant catalog.

Is the Dark Knight trailer online yet? I've seen a lot of fakes on Youtube and my theater for Harry Potter didn't play it. I've been lied to enough.
