Did I hear "The Dead Zone" and "The 4400"??!

These 2, among with Lost, are my absolute favorite shows.
The Dead Zone *does* have some lame episodes. I can't disagree on that. Especially the first episodes of the 4th season. But if you get over these, and focus on the great episodes (which are the majority), you'll love the show. It's a great show.

The 4400 is even better than The Dead Zone (you should give it a try Darkflame!). I can't describe it more without giving away spoilers (I think I already gave some description in this thread), but I used it's music as my Windows startup sound So you can see how much I love it. The ending of the second season was so , I can't wait to see the next major plot turn.

Lost, well, Lost is Lost. Lost is good. Even a little better than The 4400

I haven't seen The Dead Zone yet. I don't have much time to! But did anyone manage to catch that new Supernaturalwhatever series? I watched the beginning, and basically fell asleep on the rest. That could have either been because I was tired or it sucked.

Anyhow, I love Lost, Dead Like Me (<3!!@$!$) and Six Feet Under.

I just reached ep 15 in lost season 1, and I would just like to say that lost is the best thing. ever. ^^


Seriously, don't you dare not watch this :P
It's amazing, and I'm REALLY not someone who's quick to call something amazing.

So in conclusion, WATCH IT.

Firefly is up there with Farscape for me. It's not as in-depth, but considering there was only 14 episodes released in total, I am really impressed by the amount of storytelling the crew and cast managed to pack in.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Yes, FireFly is a great series, great characters and witty dialouges, it is a shame Fox cancelled it, if it'd continue it could have been an awesome show.

Anyway, there is a movie, with same cast, released yesterday at USA I think. Called Serenity.

I didn't like Firefly at all, the way they mix science-fiction and western makes no bloody sense to me. o_O
If they left out the western part, or just toned it down a little, it would've probably been a little bit better.

I've been watching Farscape and Battlestar Galactica alot recently. After watching more than half the first season of Battlestar Galactica, I thought for myself; "Hey, what the heck, lets try this Farscape thing while we're at it.."
So I leeched some Farscape from some poor sod (actually, I seeded for over 2 weeks after downloading it, but leeching sounds neater to say) and sat down to watch it.

After watching the first episode I was very dissapointed, saying for myself; "Wtf is this?! It's so totally lame! Who in gods name would ever like crap like this?" But, I had indeed spent the last few days leeching it from some poor sod, so I decided to give it one more shot. I quickly watched the second episode and that didn't give much better impression, even though it was a little bit better.
I decided to give it one last shot, and that's when I got blessed by the Farscape phenomenon. It was awesome! I totally fell inlove with it. Before I knew it I had watched the first season and was craving for more.
I definetly recommend watching Farscape for anyone, and If you don't like it by the first episodes, give it another shot or two. I can almost guarantee that you will love it.

As for Battlestar Galactica. I like it quite a bit, but ever since I watched Farscape I haven't had the guts to go back to Battlestar Galactica. Afraid of what I might think of it now. I'll watch one more season of Farscape, then I'll probably watch some Battlestar Galactica.

So.. lets make a little list here of what I'm currently watching;
  • Farscape - Totally awesome, I can't get enough of it!
  • Lost - Best thing ever, 'nuff said (together with Farscape ofcourse, *cough* *cough*)
  • Battlestar Galactica - Awesome, when I last watched it. Might change opinion if I watch it now.
  • That '70s Show - Hysterical ^^, such sweet afternoon enjoyment is hard to find. Suits excellent together with a cup of coffee.
  • Will & Grace - Stupid, but excellent. I like heterosexuals making fun of homosexuals and vice versa.
  • Friends - Always nice together wit ha cup of coffee. Sadly, however, I haven't got much time to watch it nowadays.

I agree with everyone saying Lost is the best thing ever. Even though I really am someone who's quick to call something amazing. Lost is just better than any other show.

You think season 1 of Farscape is good? wait till you see the rest ^_^
---

I kinda think canceling anything after one season is stupid...it takes people that long to find the show. Word of mouth and accidental watching something is a slow process.
Also, for a story standpoint, season 1 establishs the situation and charecters so you can start exploreing them more in the later seasons.

Oh good why won't they show more of these shows here?! I want to see Farscape, Firefly and the last three seasons of Stargate. But noooooooooooooooooo, we only get frickin' CSI/NY/Miami (which is fine, although I only watch CSI Classic, but goddammit, I want my SG1). And I wish they show the first season of Lost again, 'cause I never got to see that.

Chaosfish: Oh course you can desribe The 4400 better than that: It's the new X-Files. Easy as that.

Hahaha!!

If you do as much as watch the second season up to "Crackers Don't Matter," you'll end up watching all 4 seasons plus the mini-series before you hit Galactica again

Just watched the second episode of Threshold, and it still rocks!
Now here's something funny I noticed about this show:
The actor who plays Ethan in lost also has a character in Threshold. The funny thing is that he plays the same role as in Lost! His name is not Ethan, but he is still the weird mysterious scary dude that comes out of nowhere and grabs you by your neck. Coincidence? I don't think so.

I say, watch the show.

Nudity!! Hells yeah. Anyway, I watched a *smidgen* of it once and it wasn't bad at all, but I just think it will be a little hard to follow since I didn't catch it from the beginning. If I have time I'll try though.

Supernatural DOES suck by the way, just to inform everyone. I regret looking further into it. At least it gave me a good rest.

I heard Prison Break is good. Did anyone try it? It should have about 7 episodes so far.

You people should give Threshold a try. I just realized I didn't describe it yet.

Threshold - (science fiction) - Molly, a contingency analyst, deals with "worst case scenarios". She makes plans for the government on what to do in cases of a sudden crisis - for example a sudden global deadly virus attack. One of her plans, a plan on what to do on first encounters with aliens, is named "Threshold".
This plan happens to be executed, the a couple of special agents lands an hellicopter in her back yard and takes her with them - where she is assigned as the Threshold operation leader.
From this moment on (and also some momnets before it that I didn't mention) you'll have to discover everything by watching the show.
The atmosphere of the show is great, acting is great, and I love the characters.
So do me a favour and give it a try, I hate being the only one enjoying it

I watch Lost (who doesn't?!) religously, it's the only show I'll go out of my way to watch (I don't watch much tv). And malcom in the middle if it's on when I'm eating, also Friends if it's one when I decide I'm bored of my guitars.

EDIT: and I've just noticed that when using quick reply the page doesn't refresh to display your post, your post just magically appears. And the spoiler tags suck - it was cool having the mouse over thing but I guess this is safer.

EDIT 2: And I've also just noticed the cool editing thing.
