I just checked out the first two episodes of The Messengers. Seems interesting enough to want to stick with it for the foreseeable future.

Trailer for season one of Sense8 just dropped... feels like Heroes, but with the talent and weirdness of the Wachowskis behind it.  I admit, I'm more than a little interested now

Hmmmm count me in. I know my wife will not like it. To sci-fi and mind bending.

Nothing else on at the moment for me, so I decided to give Empire another chance. Just watched the first two episodes. Pretty good. 2 down, another 11 to go.....

I was checking the Roku Menu this morning looking for something I could watch over the weekend and came across Star Wars: Rebels. I've known about this series for about a year or so, but given it's connection with the Disney Channel, I figured this was going to be dumb downed to appeal to the kids that make up the demographic for TDC. I was wrong. The animation looks great for a TV series and the story itself is a pretty straight forward one. Sure, it's basically reusing the same template: Boy meets up with Jedi and will learn the ways of the force....

Impressed by the visuals as well as the sounds. It's all there including the music. Also, some of the jokes were really funny. Totally dug that they put in the Wilhelm Scream as well, which made me laugh. I'm definitely on board and will be watching the rest of the season.

I just found out about The Wilhem Scream a few years ago. I thought what a great name for a band.  ;)

Oh, sorry... Back to the discussion

I just caught the first two episodes of The Whispers and I liked it. Definitely on board for what I think is an 'Event Series'. I can't see how they sustain this beyond 10 episodes. I'm not sure how much Steven Spielberg is involved here, but the first two episodes dipped into the Close Encounters of the Third Kind, ET and Poltergeist sandbox. They were definitely homages and well-placed within the story context. When I saw the TV spots for this show the last month or so, I was under the impression it would be on the Supernatural level like The Sixth Sense. Now I'm seeing it more in the Sci-Fi genre. Who knows. It might be both.

Just gave the first episode of Dark Matter a spin. The setup of 7 strangers who awake on a Spaceship out in the middle of nowhere with no memory of who they are or how they got there was interesting. The reveal at the end was a good twist. I'm down to see where this goes.  I'm sure there will be people making Firefly connections based on the ship and a few of the characters.

I've seen an ad once or twice. Really didn't make a blip on my radar. Maybe now I'll check it out.

New trailer for season one of Wet Hot American Summer.  You might notice H Jon Benjamin (Archer) doing the voice-over, but the rest of the cast is blink-and-you'll-miss-them.

I love the ruddy VHS look they did this video in.  Presumably the show will look normal.

I saw the first episode of Humans tonight and it was........just okay. Normally this is the type of show that I'd start a thread on. But as I said, it was average at best. I hated the movie A.I because it was devoid of any personality and left me feeling cold. Humans made me feel the same. It's not as bad as that movie, but it wasn't great either. I will stick with it and see what the next few episodes have in store.

I'm interested in seeing Humans, but I'm real curious to see... we should set up a compare and contrast between it, Battlestar Galactica, and Caprica.  I'm sure we'll figure something interesting there.

Full proper trailer for Wet Hot American Summer... I kinda wish id didn't see it because holy cow some of that cast... still, I did see it, and if you're on the fence about watching the show, this will firmly put it on your radar.

Just watched the first 3 episodes of Killjoys. First episode was just okay for me. Second was a little bit better. Third showed potential of what the series could be. Still uncertain what the main arc of the show is though. Other than some mysterious guy that trained the chick to be an assassin at a young age, nothing much else was said or implied about this. Will stick with it for the time being.

I just watched the first two episodes of Dominion. It looks slick. Great production values and the story of a Guardian Angel protection the Human Race against fallen Angels is intriguing. But one problem I have after the first couple of episodes is who the Main Character is suppose to be. Is it Michael, the Angel or is is Alex, the Chosen One?
