Premiere is tonight on TNT.

I'm not usually into TV shows.

But, this one looks pretty good.

It'll fill the gap until Walking Dead.

TWD is the only sitcom I watch.

And to me, Falling Skies looks pretty good.

That's saying something.

Good enough to watch, but it could be a lot better.


Hopefully the show gets a sharp edge to it. It has been too predictable and too soft so far.

To me:

It beats anything else currently on televsion.

However, there in again, I'm not a huge sitcom kinda guy.

If you don't like sitcoms or reality TV, there isn't a whole lot out there.

That's where I sit. I like original series like Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Falling Skies, and the good stuff on Discovery, TLC, AP, and Military Channel.


My wife likes reality TV, and when she watches Stupid Whores Club or the Tardashians it nearly pushes me to drowning newborn kittens.

Some "reality" tv is good.

I enjoy American Pickers, Pawn Stars, Cajun Pawn Stars, etc.

The stuff on TruTV I enjoy every now and then. But majority of that has to be staged.

I also enjoy Big Bang Theory. That's about it.

I've heard good things about Game of Thrones but I need to get around and rent season one.

It's not a sitcom, it's a drama.

Although there were a few times last season where it was laughably bad.

Let's hope season two is better.

Fingers crossed.

I would tell you to keep trying, but it really has been a "meh" show 95% of the time.


I am sticking with it strickly for the SciFi element.

This is how I feel about all TNT and USA shows. Just meh...

FX and AMC beat them hands down, not even close.

I mainly watch it because it's hip event television and I want to be one of the cool kids. Breaking Bad and Walking Dead I'm a big fan of, of course. There are a couple of shows I really love on USA, though, White Collar and Suits. Burn Notice is okay, too, although I think the others are better. The only thing I watch on TNT, aside from Falling Skies (which is mediocre) is Franklin and Bash. Fun show.

This actually got really good toward the end of the 1st season. I'm fired up for the 2nd season.

Decent.


It needs more conflict. They are trying, but it's just not believable conflict.


Hopefully they convert some of the people into evil charcters.

Oh, you have yet to watch season 1?


Imagine 25 minutes of commercials per hour, 33 minutes of soft, family moments, and 2 minutes of quality action in which the characters' safety in never in question.

I tried watching this show last night because I wasn't tired and it was on. I fell asleep before the first commercial break. I'm happy because I needed to go to sleep. This show is better than melatonin.

I didn't know it was a two hour premier. I only watched the first hour. I suppose it's good because it makes the laughable flaws in logic and the cornball dialogue on Walking Dead seem not so bad.
I can't help watching, though. Even though every character is a cliche and the scenes are all these little, "Now it's time for a special moment," scene. The one where the Grizzled Army Guy shares Scotch with the doctor and reflects on Noah Wylie. It's so sucky that it's almost unbearable. And the youngest son? I want to just slap that kid every time he's on screen. I like the scene where the black dude and the Biker Guy share a moment and the black dude is like, "I haven't forgotten." They may as well just flash "Foreshadowing" on the screen. But not in a good way where you think something tense might happen in the future; in a kitschy crappy way where you know they'll resolve their differences when one saves the other.

Yikes. Tried watching this online last night. Tnt makes the commercial breaks online 2 and a half long minutes. Wholly Guacamole Batman! Not only that, but I got to the third "segment" at the 15:24 mark and it just sits there, the video no longer continues. No way am I going to mess with watching this online.

It's ok. They kind of veer into kitsch sometimes. Too many hospital bed scenes where one person gets misty eyed.

But I watch it, so I do like it.

Looks like the same thing the new Battlestar Galactica did when Cylon #6 was getting it on with Baltar in the bedroom before Caprica got nuked.

It's very corny, but it's SciFi and it's watchable.

They kicked it up a notch. It's got a little bit of an edge to the show now.

The baby is creepy has hell, too.

Pretty good episodes IMO.
