Keep your friends close, your enemies closer, and your aliens on another planet

The fate of the Earth hangs in the balance as Falling Skies begins its fourth season (Thursday, June 26, on Super Channel), with the planet's remaining rebels learning a hard lesson -- when you enlist the aid of one race of aliens to help you defeat another race of aliens, nothing good will happen and ulterior motives will ultimately be revealed. Noah Wyle returns as professor-turned-militiaman Tom Mason; Winnipeg product Sarah Sanguin Carter is also back in the role of Maggie, a fierce fighter with a complicated past who is destined for big changes in Season 4.

It's an ill-U-sion!

Doug Henning would have loved the latest brain-twisting video from pop band OK Go!, which is a series of painstakingly arranged optical illusions filmed in a single take in a Brooklyn studio. The clip, for the song The Writing's on the Wall, took two months to set up, and 61 takes to capture. The L.A.-by-way-of-Chicago band will release its latest album, Hungry Ghosts, on Oct. 14.

Fringe ho!

Fringe festival season is in full swing in Eastern Canada, which means it won't be long -- less than a month -- before a record 178 shows open in Winnipeg. The 18th annual Ottawa Fringe Festival wraps this Sunday, while Toronto's 26th kicks off Wednesday. The fringe movement continues to spread across North America. Last year fringing arrived in the small British Columbia mill town of Port Alberni, and on July 3 will debut in the booming American metropolis of San Diego.

Ontario icewine nabs international award

London-based Decanter magazine's World Wine Awards competition is among the toughest and most prestigious of its kind. So it's no small deal that Inniskillin's 2012 Niagara Peninsula icewine made from the Vidal grape was awarded Best in Show in the international -- sweet wines over £15 category on Tuesday. The wine, which retails in Manitoba for $54.99 for a 375-millilitre bottle at Manitoba Liquor Marts and private wine stores, beat out entries from around the world, including Sauternes (France) and Tokaj (Hungary).
