Did anyone see the 2009 BBC version of Day of the Triffids?  It seemed to come and go with no fanfare.

 

The Event was, ok.  If they drop the flashbacks I'll keep watching.

 

Oh and Warehouse 13, HG Wells is a woman?  What the what?

 

Not sci-fi but the new Hawaii 5-O made me want to stab my TV.  I was watching it for Grace Park and Daniel Day Kim, and sweet zombie gerbils it was awful.

They had a pretty good reveal on that. There is the HG Wells that is famous, and then there is the "reality" of her being, well, a woman.

 

Basically, she wrote the stuff, and her brother fronted for her. And, of course, since the agents were looking for a man, she was able to get the drop on them.

 

All and all, I watch Warehouse 13 for the interaction between Pete and Mika. The Wells character makes it more interesting. Oh, and I guess I should fess up to watching for Claudia, too...

Chuck season 4 had a good start this season. It's a great show but season 3 had a few low spots. Eureka is OK, Warehouse 13 is fun. Caprica is harsh and gritty, even knowing where it supposedly went there are some themes that may help explain some of the cylon psyche. I like Stargate Universe as well.

I felt like I was watching Vantage Point at times. It's a one trick pony that gets old real quick. The end was pretty awesome tho. I can truly say that I didn't see it coming. Solid show. Compelling story. AWESOME hook. They did a good job of making you want to know what the Event is.

I thought it felt a little rushed. I didn't have time to connect to any of the characters so while I was somewhat intrigued I didn't particularly care about anyone.

aaaaand done with The Event.  It wants to be LOST so bad it hurts.  Has none of the polish or atmosphere of LOST though, and all of the irritating writing, flashbacks, retcons, characters...

 

And that's just two episodes.

I've got it on DVR but haven't watched it yet. I kinda figured I wouldn't be keeping up with it tho. Same with Nikita... lame.

 

We watched No Ordinary Family last night. I have to say that I was pretty disappointed with it. Not that the story or acting was that horrible, but my wife and I were hoping that it was something that we could all watch as a family w/our 9 year old son. So I was pretty shocked when less than 5 minutes into it the daughter is exclaiming that she's going to die without ever having done it. Throw in a few needless swear words and a lot more sex talk and its safe to say that I'll be previewing the next episode before I let my son watch it. :down:

 

Its disappointing that great family shows like Robinson Crusoe and Merlin keep getting canceled for crap like this that tries to attract teens by being edgy. Hate to break it to you Hollywood, but teens just don't want to watch TV w/their parents, no matter what the show is like.

Chrome, too much of that going on. You go to watch a tv show or a movie CLEARLY targetted for families or kids and you're like... WHY? And 99% of the time it's so obvious and pointless that it actually turns you off to the show/ movie (yeah i'm looking at you revenge of the fallen)
