I know Supernatural and Arrow are on CW this week I want check those out I want see how Sam get out of purtgaory
I really enjoyed Haven on Friday. The show is just fey enough to be good and quirky, but the characters are rich and well portrayed. Good show. I was excited about Fringe, but every other scene was the torture of Walter, and it was just too much. I’ll try it again later. I have Xbox live, so I’m going to be looking for Nuclear Family.
You are not posting ‘The Neighbors’?
I watched about 2 minutes of it. And from other reviews, I doubt it will be on TV very long.
I have watched Supernatural since the beginning. It barely got renewed at the end of Season 1.
I like Once Upon a Time (ABC) and Grimm (NBC). I wasn’t much for Stephen King stuff, but I started watching Haven later in Season 1 and liked it — mainly due to the interaction of the main characters.
666 Park Avenue begins tonight on ABC. I’ll tune it in to see how it goes.
Doctor Who has has several episodes since you mentioned the show last -
“Asylum of the Daleks”
“Dinosaurs on a Spaceship”
“A Town Called Mercy”
“The Power of Three”
“The Angels Take Manhattan”
Your show dates are also lagging. Are you losing interest?
Syfys newest original series will premiere next week not through the cable channels television network, but on Xbox Live. Nuclear Family is Syfy Digitals third original series and will debut October 1 through Xbox Live, with later releases following via other online channels October 15. Welcome to the family. The show stars Corin Nemec (Stargate SG-1), Kinsey Packard (Sleeper Cell), Ray Wise (Mad Men), and Sharon Lawrence (Desperate Housewives). Its story follows a familys efforts to survive in a lawless society captained by a figure known as The Man. The family is also searching for their lost child, who has gone missing following the events of an unexplained explosion.
And it looks like they’re aiming Haven toward a final conclusion although I don’t know how fast time goes by in this series. (For example, their Christmas episode, though it aired in December, took place back in the summer.) But there’s only two months of Haven-time before Audrey either disappears or breaks the cycle.
I think “Arrow” starts 10/10.
The twist last week in Dr. Who where they’re traveling back together, and then the Ponds are lost this week, was frustrating. Not dead immediately, but dead at that moment when they go back in time. It seemed an easy out, in terms of plotting.
What is “The Neighbors” about?
The Neighbors is a comedy (think 3rd Rock from the Sun) about a bunch of aliens who take up residence in a subdivision.
The show dates aren’t lagging. The next episode will be during the BBC Christmas Special.
Here’s the teaser trailer.
So far nothing has been updated on the Wiki page for the episodes listed.
I love Supernatural, but last season it had a weak overall story arc, and the partisanship — always somewhat present — kicked in to such high gear I’m thinking of dropping it altogether.
For anyone who has been watching "Copper" on BBC America on Sundays, they're going to be airing another first-run drama series titled: "Ripper Street" starting sometime this fall. It takes place in Whitechapel in 1889, and deals with the aftermath of the Ripper murders.
A sci-fi, end of the world story
I understand next season they may go to 2014 plotline where end of the world might happen and that might be end of the series there is been talk that how the series going end Winchester brother go against Satan at the end somebody going get kill
This year i think mostly Sam and Dean try reconnect after one of them spent time in Purgaotry and Kevin that new prophet is back too I saw the preview
666 Park ave look good
I don't think it's long for this world. A decade ago, aliens landed and bought up a new subdivision. The leader forgot to bring the recharger for their com device, a "poopad", one alien couple abandon the mission, selling their house to human family...
Here's the IMDB url The Neighbors
Probably the most recognizable name is Jami Gertz (as the human mom), and she's not credited on the main page.
Lenny Venito plays her husband, but I can't get him out of his recurring role in NYPD Blue as the sad sack mope "Julian".
Oh, and the aliens have taken names of well known athletes.
Nevertheless, a very good episode. Certainly the best of this season so far.
It could be personality development. He’s aged and seen so many die, now he hates endings.
Oh I agree. I’m not denying the plausibility of that thesis, I’m just unhappy they didnt mention it before the exact show where they used it to highlight the bombshell of Rory and Amy leaving the Tardis. It would have been quite easy to put a few mentions in over the course of even this season.
All sounds a bit derivative doesnt it?
Come to think of it, since 3rd Rock was mentioned, instead of ending on the roof, the sign-off had the two male leads conversing in a space buggy summing up.
It's bound to fail because of the timing, let alone the "faults of its feet". Between BHO, Muchelle, and the LSM, the entire culture is a farce right now, and "The Neighbors" offers absolutely no differentiation.
Unfortunately, I think it comes on opposite Hawaii Five-oh.
Of course, there is nothing new under the sun. However there’s a difference between “standing on the shoulders of giants” and blatantly copying someone else’s creative talents.
Hubby and I just watched the premiere episode, and we both liked it. He wonders if they can keep up the intrigue; but, if they can, I think it may be a keeper.
