Episode 1
Splinter (aka The Pilot)

It's only one episode, but I think SyFy finally has gotten back on track to producing quality stuff on par with Battlestar Galatica and I'm very happy with what I just watched. It's definitely the series for me to tune into this season. The setup (or plot) if you will is still the same: To go back in time and stop the plague that will decimate the world. But the execution of how we get there is where things differ drastically from 12 Monkeys and it's a good thing that it does. I don't want to see a carbon copy of the movie. I want to see stuff that hasn't been done yet. Nothing could be worse than sitting through an entire season and saying "this is where such and such happens". Where's the fun in that. I love that they jump right into it from the start. No setup or overlong explanation of things to come. This gets you hitting the ground running. The ending of Splinter pretty much shows you how different things are and how the series will be forging it's own path from the movie.

If you are a fan of the movie this is based on, or Terminator itself, or anything related to Time Travel. you're gonna dig this. There is more emphasis on Time Travel which tells me that they already have a wider canvas to play with here for the show. Add in a stellar cast and you can see why my enthusiasm is very high for this. Even though I was looking forward to checking this out and even though it's got a couple of players from Nikita, I still went into this with low expectations given SyFy's recent track record of producing garbage. I highly recommend this for sure. I'm on board for as long as this takes flight. I hope that people tune in and give it a shot so that the ratings are good and they keep it going. I know, it's only one episode, but still......
