    Too funny...that has to be the absolute best backhanded silver lining of a show I've ever seen!

    Well done, Sir. Well Done. :D

    There had to be SOME reason I kept watching. Acting bad, plot bad, eye candy...well one of them was kinda cute, but otherwise, meh. So it was the sound. Usually I don't stick with shows that don't grab me right way, but I love when sound effects come at me from behind, or from all parts of the room and that was kinda fun. So, I was able to do other things and just be able to listen for fun stuff.

    BTW, the "alien" creature toward the end of the series was even a REALLY cheesy, 1980s tech type of alien.

    I would rank in order of descending desirability:
    • Colonoscopy
    • "Another Life"
    • Root canal

    ..although you have a root canal to solve a pretty major problem that you're experiencing. I'm not sure watching Another Life solves anything...

    Okay, good point. New list:
    • Colonoscopy
    • "Another Life"
    • Root canal
    • Having the dental problem that requires a root canal
    Actually, I've never been lucky enough to have a root canal. Whenever I have cracked a tooth, it's gone all the way down to the root; so as a result I needed a (much more expensive) implant.

    I don't take them. I've got several bottles in my safe for trading goods in the coming apocalypse.

    Yeah, I don't get that.

    But I'll probably watch.

    You can always hope audience feedback has been incorporated into the second season. ;)

    (I never understood the hate, I mean it wasn't great, but holy balls did people enjoy hating it)

    It was Katee in space. Comparison to BSG was inevitable. But it wasn't simply "not as good as BSG", it was quite bad.

    Well, there are ways in which BSG was bad.

    But there are no ways in which AL was good. ;)

    You shut your filthy mouth! Next you'll be telling me "Lost" was only good the first three seasons.

    As far as I am concerned, "Lost" was cancelled after S3, "Star Wars" only had three movies, "Heros" was cancelled after the first season, and "Game of Thrones" S8 had five episodes.

    I am unfamiliar with these shows you call "Heros" and "Game of Thrones."
