This is for all discussions, especially with J. Schwarz and Donna about TV series. Thanks to all.

And Babylon 5! And Firefly! And, and...

Okay, back to new BSG. These were pretty cool, giving a good indication at how complex the show is:

So Say We All: An Unauthorized Collection of Thoughts and Opinions on Battlestar Galactica (Smart Pop series)
Battlestar Galactica and Philosophy: Mission Accomplished or Mission Frakked Up? (Popular Culture and Philosophy)

I've just gotten into Torchwood recently. I've rated them
Season 1 - 3 stars
Season 2 - 4 stars
Season 3 (Children of Earth) - 5 stars

Haven't seen Miracle Day yet.

Hi Cilantron,
Glad to have you here. Miracle Day was a disappointment to me. Let's see how you feel.

I am not even sure you can rate Miracle Day with the others, it is so different, both in location and characters. But I did like it. NO Ianto, Tosh or Owen brings it down two stars by itself. Still, it is good enough I would like to see a Season 5. Better than no Torchwood at all.

If you guys haven't seen Lost Girl yet then get to it. It is the only show I watch on SyFy. It is very mature, has adult themes, and is refreshing in its story line. It is about a girl who does not know where she comes from who is a succubus and has to deal with the two abnormal factions that are living in the city hidden from humanity the dark and light fey. It is on Mon. nights at 10PM EST. Just thought I'd give it a mention since good new shows are so hard to find.

I have looked for Lost Girl on my ON Demand but cannot find it. So I did a search and have it ready for recording on my DVR. Thank you! I think I missed the first season so am trying to capture it all.
Edit: I did a search On Demand and found it, but it starts with season 2 ep 3 so will try to pick it up from there.
EDIT 2: I see on the internet I can pick up season 1 on Global TV which I cannot find on my cable schedule. I also do not see that I can get it online either. So maybe NF or Amazon or Hulu Plus will pick it up?
I really hate to begin watching a show in the second season. uhuh

J. Schwarz says:
I didn't think this was the second season yet because I have seen it from the beginning with no interruptions. I think we are still in the first season. The show has potential and is interesting, however highly adult themes and stuff I thought I would never see on American TV. Must be made in England.

It is definitely saying Season 2.

I don't know Global TV. Maybe its the first season on Syfy.

That is what it said, but no video online.

So you can or cannot catch it tonight on Syfy? If you need a fill in summary I can give you the main plot.

Donna says:
I can. But I really don't want to start watching midstory. I want to watch from the beginning. I am recording it too.

J. Schwarz says:
I have to say the story tonight was quite far out there. But it was interesting.

Do not agree with your view, J. Schwarz, on Lost Girl. Doesn't mean it isn't good for you and Donna, just saying.

I have never seen Lost Girl, but willing to give it a try. So as of yet I have no opinion.

Just received my copy of DA that I saw years ago. What a great show it was. For those of you who have never seen it, you should. Now as for Lost Girl, I am not saying its one of the greatest shows out there, but it is different, the storyline is interesting and will hold your attention. And since she's a succubus there has to be some R rated stuff in the plot. Its more of a magic type show with abnormal people having different powers. Many don't think it is real sci fi, and it isn't, just fantasy similar to Buffy. Sci fi is usually grounded in possibility that one day may happen, with fantasy like Dresden, Angel and Lost Girl it will never happen, but its fun to watch. Yet I don't think the Avengers, or Xmen is my cup of tea.

Loved Buffy and Angel. Liked Dresden, and Dark Angel. Lost Girl is OK. Fun to watch is the key for me, too.

Donna says:
Maybe Lost Girl will not be mine but I loved Avengers especially and Xmen too.

J. Schwarz says:
For me those two shows are too comicbookish. I used to read these comics as a kid, but no more for me. Over time tastes change. However for some reason I did like Smallville on occasion.

Donna says:
Have you seen Avengers? It is pretty well done and acted, very entertaining. I don't do comic book stuff either.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 12, 2012 8:10:31 PM PDT
J. Schwarz says:
No but I know it got 5 stars so something must have been done right. I will probably see it, although it is not the type of movie that I normally like. Watched the first two discs of DA today and have to say it was great. Alba was good in her role as Max.

Misfits:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Misfits_(TV_series)
Farscape (the best of the best).
Blake's 7
Dr. Who (the 80's one is the best).
I liked the Stargate spin offs. Not as much as many others, but I did.
Caprica had a good beginning, but was boring afterwards.
Never liked V that much.

Donna says:
Hi Patricia: Seems you and I have similar but different tastes. I think the Dr. Who series gets a bit silly and liked the one with Billy Piper in it but don't like Matt Smith as the Doctor that much. I love the Stargate spinoffs, Torchwood (the old ones mostly), BSG and Caprica. I also liked V, Surface and now Falling Skies which is beginning anew soon.

I can see our tastes are different. Dr. Who, although not great was a heck of a lot more interesting than Stargate. V I couldn't stomach, Surface I enjoyed and liked Falling Skies although it was not the best sci fi. I would imagine, and don't categorize me as being sexist that men enjoy more of the new exploration revelation type shows lite on the relationships while women are more into the relationships between the characters. And I do hate tongue in cheek characters with an attitude that attempt to make lite of whatever serious situation they are in. In other words I like hard sci fi, very realistic with no stupid humor involved.
