(Geez, I don’t think I’ve made a thread in years, maybe four.)
It always weirded me out what series get threads when it comes to General Discussion and what series don’t. I noticed most of the few things I watch, like Archer, don’t tend to get one, even if they’re great. So, I figured I’d actually make one for once since the only person I’m even sure watches this show is RockBogart to my recollection.
**(2012 EDIT: Now that this a general Sci-Fi TV show thread–thanks again Valaris–and all, I’ll probably make the first post official at…some point beyond this; blame my sloth for now doing it right now even with the other things I’m working on.
As for now, I’m just going to listing Sci-Fi shows that I know about or that have been suggested. With Eureka freshly ended for good and given that I basically only regularly watch Syfy when it comes to TV, much less live action, and watch relatively little of (that isn’t “news”), this isn’t going to be expansive or anything:
Warehouse 13 (Currently returned as of 07/23/2012and its fourth season.)
Alphas (Currently returned as of 07/23/2012 and its second season.)
Lost Girl (Currently running in its second (?) season.)
Falling Skies (On TNT? In its second season?)
[*]The Walking Dead (On AMC. I think its third season is coming up soon. Has its own thread regardless.)
Other people who aren’t in the U.S. can suggest other things, but I’m trying to stick to stuff that comes on American TV due to the utter bias I have.)**
I’m tempted to just make it a general Syfy series thread given the three series premiering today–Eureka’s sixth (?) season, Warehouse 13’s third season and Alphas’s premiere–and Haven’s return this Friday. However, putting (only) Syfy in the title is likely to be…off-putting to people, even though their (non-reality) series are actually quite good unlike most of their original movies.
Anyway, “sales pitch” aside, I’ll try to keep spoilers to a minimum since the first episode of the third season, aptly titled “The New Guy”, hasn’t come on yet for some of you–the only reason it’s come on early on for me because despite being in PST, I’ve had satellite for a while:
The New Guy
I laughed quite a bit realizing why “The New Guy” looked so familiar, especially after confusing him with his brother.
Similarly laughed a bit after realizing how everyone in that universe would probably be dead if Ms. Frederick was an assassin between CCH Pounder apparently channeling Batman to go with her Amanda Waller.
Good to see they’re still using Lena. I had kinda of feared towards the end of the first season and after her run in with the Pearl during the second that they would just kinda forget about her given that it would easy to do–even though I’m pretty sure everyone in the Warehouse actually lives at her inn.
Lol at Steve getting tasered by Artie. I’m surprised he didn’t bring that up later.
I wonder how heavily that ocular lie detection is going to play into things.
Yay, Myka’s back, at least temporarily. It’s weird how H.G. Wells seemed to convince her more easily than anyone else. Hmm…
I have to wonder if H.G. Wells even has a body anymore due to the fucked up tech that the Warehouse has access to. Pretty sure any of the people on Ms. Frederick’s level or above could pull off some “And I Must Scream” shit pretty easily.
It’s going to be odd having three agents around even though I guess Claudia was that for half of the second season.
You can watch the rest of the earlier episodes from the series Warehouse 13 here as well as any of Syfy’s other series.
Not much else to say given that I want to avoid spoilers.
Currently watching Alphas now. It’s a lot more interesting than I thought it would be, even if Nina seems kinda of broken. Heh, saying “kinda of broken” is being kinda of generous to point where I’m almost certain she’ll be the first to die ala Eden from Heroes even with all the hints that she has a “dark past” and the Scary Black Man comes with build-in heart attack timer. Maybe she has a bigger drawback than we’re seeing presently since that seems to be the theme of the powers in this series already.
