    So does this mean it will be running on syfy and in Canada at the same time (i.e. we're watching episode 1, they are watching episode 8)?

    How many episodes should I give this show?

    Just tried to watch the first episode (of season 1) and couldn't make it to the end. Rachel Nichol's true believer character really grated on me. Of course, the other side isn't any better either.

    I watch and enjoy this show quite a bit. Something I can watch with the kids and it's good summer sci fi.

    My wife and I enjoy the show quite a bit. It isn't Fringe. But it is better than Defiance.

    Sharknado is almost better than Under The Dome.

    Fringe >> Continuum > Defiance > Under The Dome ~ Sharknado

    Sharknado > The Following (it makes more sense)

    I'm not sure you put nearly a big enough gap between Fringe and Continuum, but otherwise I agree with your chart. On a quality scale.

    On an enjoyment scale, The Following is more fun than Under The Dome, because it's worse. It's fun to laugh at it. Under The Dome isn't bad enough to laugh at.

    Haven't watched Sharknado yet, but tonight is a dead television night, so maybe...

    Regarding The Following let me agree that this Forum's members have a much better sense of humor than other Forums. Reading the weekly summaries here was hilarious. I posted just a couple comments elsewhere where folks were commenting on the absurdities and received PMs telling me to STFU. I was not thread crapping. Humorless.

    By my count “Second Degree” was the 7th episode with 6 more remaining.

    Second Listen
    Seconds
    Second Wave
    Second Guess
    Second Last
    Second Time

    I'm enjoying this more and more. The ending of the last episode was predictable, but I have no idea where the plot is going season-wise.

    I've enjoyed the 2nd season, but I usually can't talk about it because I don't watch the US feed, so I'm considerably ahead of SyFy viewers.

    Ditto. I think they've really figured out what they're up to this season.

    I liked the first season just fine, but they definitely have upped their game.

    I was shocked that they killed off Agent Gardner in the last episode. Definitely didn't see that one coming.

    Does anyone know if the show has some kind of connection to Kyle XY? I believe the guy who plays agent Gardner, and the girl who plays Alex's girlfriend were both on that show.

    I'm enjoying it so far. It's not the best, but there are certainly much worse sci-fi shows on TV (Defiance is barely watchable). Plus, even if the episode is kind of lame, Rachel Nichols at least provides some nice eye candy. :)

    They're both filmed in Vancouver.

    I like to joke that Planet Vancouver has a very small gene pool, because the same actors keep popping up on all the various Vancouver-based sci-fi shows.

    yes, true.

    I miss fringe as well.

    I would go with

    Fringe (great) >>>>>>> Continuum (good) >>> Falling Skies (very hit and miss, overly dramatic) >>>> Defiance (meh) >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Under The Dome (unwatchable)

    editing to add in Falling Skies to our Sci fi listing

    Season 2 has been really good. Fun popcorn show that has gotten better as it has gone along.

    I agree. It's good enough that I deleted Lost Girl when it came down to one or the other.
