Just started watching Battlestar Galactica. Really enjoying it so far.


Awesome! Tell us which character you have a crush on. Seriously, that show is amazing. Even though it's ten years old, the themes they explored are still current, making one of my favorite TV shows.

I wanna watch Doctor Who. Where should I start?


Honestly if you like I usually recommend 1 episode from each new Doctor to get you into the show (the first episode is clunky and off-putting) and then they usually start at the beginning and go through the whole thing before jumping back to watch Doctors 1-8 sporadically. Watching the old show isn't necessary to get into it, but there are some amazing stories in it. If you like I'll post my list.

"Rose" is very clumsy and weird, but I do feel it's necessary to start there to understand what's going on.

I usually use 'Blink' and 'Dalek' as they explain what happened and why the new series starts where it does as well as who the Doctor is (in 'Blink' you don't get too much of him and it isn't too much, so its really a grand starting point).

Granted, but I have this thing about chronology.

I usually show them those 2 and then have them watch from the beginning. It softens the awkwardness.

Then Doctor Who might not be the show for you Razz. Particularly given the last Christmas special, which did an interesting thing with the events of Season 6.

I agree though that "Rose" is a necessary starting point, but then random episodes to get a sense of each Doctor is important. Blink is a good one. Another good one is "A Christmas Carol."

Arrow is getting better and better -- and it's one of the few shows that I watch live.


Orphan Black Season 2 has started and it's crazy good just like Season 1!


I'm rather miffed that Almost Human was cancelled by Fox. Then again, I shouldn't be surprised - it's Fox. *sigh*


Resurrection over on ABC has me confused, but in a good way. I'm really liking it and it's [short] season is almost over.




As for Doctor Who -- I jumped in with Tennant right around the Silence in the Library and then finished that season. Afterward, I went back to Eccleston and watched everything I had missed. It didn't bother my "chronological" mind one bit since it's a show that revolves around wibbley-wobbley, timey-wimey...stuff. :D

I don't know. I feel like Fringe pretty much proved that Fox is there if the fan base is really there. Plus, I think for a long time Fox was the only channel giving Scifi a chance. Terra Nova and Alcatraz got a shot even though they ended up being terrible. It ran X-Files back in the day. Sleepy Hollow had a second season after it's third episode. It's basically Firefly and Dollhouse that people miss. Two wounds in a pretty decent history. Really, if anything Fox hates Whedon, not science fiction. :p

Also, Fox is my favorite network, so I am biased. :p It's bringing back my beloved 24. Note the Bauer24 in my name. :D :D :D :D Now if only I could hope for a Fringe reunion someday...

I loathed the last Christmas special. Not because of changes to the timeline, mind. I loved the 50th anniversary. The Christmas special, however, I found to be lazy and contrived.

I started watching the series, thinking it's going to be a show about an original vigilante, I was very dissapointed when I realized it's a show about the Green Arrow.
But now that the show progresses I'm glad I kept watching.

I know how you feel. I had high hopes and expectations for this one. Crying or Very sad

I knew, I couldn't be the only one who's seen this. Smile I barely remember it, but I know I liked it, even if it was a bit soap opera-ish.

I've never watched the movie that precedes the show though.

We have a friend visiting, and we introduced her to Psych. Great excuse to re-watch an amazing show.

I used to love Psych. One of the best mystery/comedies out there. I haven't seen the last few seasons. Around season 6 I started to lose interest/got busy with school.

It recently ended. The last season was short, and apart from one or two filler episodes, was designed to bring the show to a great conclusion. I recommend finishing it up.
