With the season-two premiere of Falling Skies still a few months away, TNT has decided to make the wait a little shorter by releasing the first 3 minutes online now—and does it look good! Spoilers!

The action picks up three months from the season-one finale, which saw Tom Mason (Noah Wyle) leave with the aliens in an effort to save his son. In that time, it seems a lot has changed.

Tom is nowhere to be seen, but Capt. Weaver (Will Patton) and newly reformed criminal John Pope (Colin Cunningham) are leading a successful rebel attack on some alien mechs and skitters, and it seems one of Tom's sons has had a definite change of heart in regard to the alien war.

Check out the clip below.

Season two of Falling Skies, which is one of the highest rated shows ever for the network, premieres June 17 on TNT.

What do you think? Will round two improve on the impressively solid first season?
