watched the pilot for "fringe" after hearing it was the modern day equivalent to X-files.

God I hate jj abrams. The show's pacing is cracked out, it's like watching a recap of the previous episode only its the current one and its 60 minutes in length. No respect for audience, typical plastic actors.

Abrams shows no restraint when it comes to anything, if he wants a lady to have robot arms **** it let her have robot arms its the year 2008 after all. If people wanna telepathically talk to each other without any explanation **** it lets do that too audience won't tell the difference.

You should stick it out, it gets so much better in the middle of the second season til the fourth one.

oops didn't see that earlier. Thanks!

I'm in the second season of Being Human the US version. After watching the pilot , I wasn't sure where they would go with the story lines but I have been enjoying it.

I decided to watch the US version before the UK one because I didn't want the original to make me feel like the US version is just a disappointing import.

Probably a good idea, since the US one IS a disappointment in comparison. It moves too fast compared to the UK one. But that's all Imma say. Not trying to spoil it!

Currently rewatching Modern Family Season 3, still as funny as the first time I watched it.

Not sure what other peoples thoughts are but picking up on the Being Human post, I completely lost interest in the third season of the UK version, but won't give anything away!

If that's anything to do with the original, starring the late Sir Ian Richardson, you've got a real treat on your hands IF they do it right.
If not, seek ye out the original and be amazed! One of the best political dramas/satires I have ever seen in my long life.
I'll be featuring it in "The Couch Potato" at some point, probably not soon though. It needs not to be rushed, even in review.

(cue cancellation...)
... and the jinx is back! Cancelled, as I thought. Oh well. I guess now I don't have to watch those episodes backed up on my Sky box. More space for me!

Early Law and Order. God, it's amazing. Miles better than most of the other crime shows.
Also the new season of Community as it airs. I personally quite liked the first episode, but it's getting a lot of hate.
