Only three of this summer's programs stand out to me as having action-heroine potential. They are:
* The Nine Lives of Chloe King
* Falling Skies
The Nine Lives of Chloe King is based on a series of young adult books. A girl falls from a building onto concrete. No one should be able to survive the fall -- but Chloe emerges from it unscathed. Then strange thinjgs start to happen, supernatural events, and secret societies begin to emerge. I recommend avoiding the Amazon.com page, since it contains probably the single-biggest spoiler I've ever seen.
Alphas is a show about a team of superheroes. Could be good, but I've been disappointed in so many similar shows, from Heroes to Misfits.
Falling Skies looks promising. It's a Steven Spielberg-produced show in which the earth has been conquered by aliens, and human rebels begin to rise up. Doesn't sound too original, but it looks to have top-notch talent behind it.
