Continuum – Holy crap, that girl is the green girl/GI Scarlet? Wow! No wonder my SO is fascinated by it. Also, in episode 1, the terrorists say very clearly to the girl that they knew it was a one-way trip and their plan is to wage war on the corporations to change the future. Maybe we watched a different first episode? It’s possible, with the Canadian episodes floating around.
Haven – HEY! *scowls* Sheesh. I’m watching it. WOMEN are watching this show, which is why it received a renewal. Couldn’t you just try, a little, to appeal to female listeners and cover this show for 1 minute? It sounds like John might, you know, talk about it, if you’d LET him. :P :P :P
By the second episode of Continuum the Liber8 terrorists are trying to return to the future (episode where they short out the power station) so it is a bit unclear to me if they really thought it was a one-way mission.
Listened to the rest. I really loved Fringe, but didn’t much like these last 13, although I watched them all. When Fringe started, I thought of it as a new X-Files, but you’re right, by the end, it was more like Lost. I agree, Fauxlivia is waaaay more fun – I had thought that they would bring more of her into Olivia after they met, but then they started this last season in such a grim place, there wasn’t any room for a lighter Olivia.
Wouldn’t SciFi’s Deliverance count as an old-school wheelhouse kind of show? It has to at least be Lost In Space-y, with human stuck in a static place and visited by aliens. Not really looking forward to it, but will probably watch anyway. Stupid wheelhouse loyalty.
I really want to try to get out to see Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters because it sounds completely insane. And Gemma Arterton is yummy. ~_^
