SlyLieChunnel broadcasts in HD?
Watched first 15 minutes then bailed.

Someone hasn't been keeping up with the times.
Of course you need MPEG4 receiving equipment.
The Hawkmen episode was a new low in television, but I'm still watching. It can't get worse than that episode, except for maybe the episode with the bug that made people so happy they'd die.
That's the episode that made me through in the towel...
I like this show, but I'd be hard pressed to tell you why. Maybe it's the bounty hunter...
I have the last 4 recorded. Haven't given up yet, but haven't watched them either.
I am finally all caught up now...
I have to say, the show has really grown on me. Once I got over the fact that this was going to have little but names of places and characters in common with previous incarnations, I started appreciate it for what it is - a light sci-fi adventure with no pretenses. The last three episodes have been very entertaining, probably mostly because they have taken place almost entirely on Mongo. The Earth-based stories are just not very good.
I still think that the banality of Ming's bureaucratic evil is diminishing the impact of his character. It is more like East Germany than some other-worldly super-human evil, which simply isn't very compelling in my book. In one of the recent episodes, "Sorrow", he actually displayed some emotion and "real" evil when he killed a man with his bare hands.
I can see what the writers are doing with his character - it makes sense, in a way. I just wish they'll let him be more "stereotypically" evil too, this show needs stereotypes in the villain department too.
Also, in the same episode I think, they had a scene that was invoking the classic scene from the 1980 movie when Flash and Barin are reaching into holes into the lair of some venomous beast. It was a nice homage, and worked well.
I still watch. I actually enjoy this show more than Stargate:Atlantis. SG:A was supposed to be good and isn't very. FG was supposed to be crap and is, but not as stinky as I first thought.
I am amazed this wasn't put on like Showtime late and with an R rating, I bet it would have been a big hit. Even on a cable channel late, like part of adult swim or something, I bet it would pull in far more than those cartoons late do.
I'm either enjoying it more or have lowered my standards enough...
I second the motion to move it to Showtime and add nudity
FG has inched its way up to my weekly never miss list.
I've liked it from the beginning. It's not great, but it's good enough to watch on a regular basis.
I have a large number of episodes stocked up on the TiVo. I may get to it over the holidays, but it's very low priority.
Instead, I'm looking forward to the return of Matinee at the Bijou to PBS. They have an HD presentation of a restored Flash Gordon serial scheduled for their first season.
I really don't think it's too bad but it could use some work. It's gotten better since more of the sceens are on Mongo.
We're still watching. We consider it one of our "weekend afternoon" or "late-night weekend" shows - fluff that's fairly fun. I think Loren likes it better than me, though.
Unfortunately, for a few weeks we had some problems with the wrestling show before it running way over (we may have been taping a repeat showing, I don't remember), so we missed the ending of several episodes. So I've gotten confused on several of the main plot elements. Oh well!
Well, I just watched the latest and this show is beyond the suck.
Did Baylin's skin have a silvery sheen to it in this episode?
I would third the motion but I don't get Showtime. Remember Lexx? Sci-Fi could punch it up a little more if they wanted to. Fingers crossed.
