    If nothing else, Bo's breasts make the show worthwhile ... ;)

    My wife binge watched the first 3 seasons on Netflix. I tried watching some of it with her; there was enough cleavage to keep me interested, but afterwards I felt pretty empty. I saw enough of the earlier episodes, especially season 2, to understand what was going on, and then we watched the last 4 or so eps of Season 2 this past weekend. Anticlimactic is the best way to describe it. The "big bad" battle felt like they were channeling Buffy, but they never really made me feel that there was any significant risk.

    I was looking forward to S3E01, and it was a huge letdown as well. Is it too much to ask for a little bit of a story? I will say the twist with the warden made me laugh out loud.

    Now, if they were to announce a spinoff that was nothing but Kenzie donning different wigs and dancing like she did with the Glaive's daughter, I'd buy the Bluray.

    I felt a bit lost with S04E01 last night but that was probably because I had not watched the shows since the end of season 3. I have really enjoyed the show. It always seems like the actors are having fun. Sure the show is cheap and cheezy but I still like it for some reason. And no it is not because of the cleavage.

    I'm pretty sure everyone felt a bit lost at first ...

    I don't recall exactly how the third season ended, but I think the whole memory being erased thing came out of nowhere. To begin the season, the writers purposely set up a scenario that had the audience befuddled. I forget the name of the episode, but there is a very good Buffy episode that did something similar with an alternate reality. At any rate, I thought it was a solid start to the new season.
    Was it my imagination, or did Kenzi's eyes look different? I think she was wearing colored contact lenses. Her eyes are normally shockingly grey. It's one of the things that gives her such a cool and unique look. In this episode, her eyes were much more average in appearance.

    I didn't know this show was back. I must have changed my recording options from "new and reruns" to "new only" to avoid marathons since tivo didn't pick it up.

    I didn't know it was back either. In fact, I was happily surprised when I saw that Season 4, Episode 1 was waiting for me.

    It might not be back on SyFy yet. The show is always on in Canada before it comes to the US. People here talking about season 4 might be getting it off usenet or bit torrent. I know I watch the show off usenet.

    edit: Nevermind. I see someone posted as I was typing this that episode one has been on.

    Yeah it is back, but not marked as "new" because it has the Canada OAD listed.

    I really liked the first two seasons. Seasons 3 and 4 not so much.

    I always need to have my SPs for these Canadian shows set for new and reruns because of the OAD being earlier when it was first shown in Canada.

    Yeah, thanks to whoever pointed out that the snow haad returned. I had to adjust my SP as well (and pick up the premiere at 2:00am tomorrow).

    I finally bailed on this show. I had no idea what was going on in the first 2-3 episodes of this season. I watched for a bit, let a few episodes build up, tried getting back into it but gave up.

    I'm probably right behind you. I watched the first few episodes of the season, and the rest have just been piling up. This show used to be one of my guilty pleasures. I was always aware that it kind of sucked, and yet I still found it entertaining.

    This past season wasn't as light hearted as the past ones were. I still enjoyed it though. At least there will be another season starting in 2015.
    I don't know if her pregnancy affected anything in the show. Other than how she looked in many of the episodes.

    IRL, yes.

    This season felt off indeed, way less fun to watch.

    Many of the swear words are still there on SyFy. Nowadays it seems like there are only a few words that they blank out on cable channels..

    I've had this on my Netflix queue for years but never gotten around to watching it. Has it survived the test of time? Or is it going down hill in later seasons?
