For those still suggesting LOST: Have already watched seasons 1&2 on DVD and season 3 in real time... it's an awesome show.

Currrently watching Prison Break: Season 1

you silly, silly man. Lost > Heroes. Never seen Prison break, but Prison Break < Lost > Heroes.

Crag2804 Jun 11, 2007 09:39 AM

your opinion doesn't mean much when you haven't even seen prison break. I like all three shows and would say it's hard to pick between them. You should watch prison break

I can't believe they cancelled this one either...I mean, what are these execs taking when they hit that cancel button on a show like this.


You are welcome. :cool:

I'm going to buy it on DVD very soon, just to have it and watch it whenever I can.

I once heard a rumour that you didn't need to wait until the boxset came out to watch a show. If it's been screened somewhere...

I just finished watching Profit. It's an awesome show. If you like fiction like Tom Ripley where you get to root for the bad guy you'll love this show. Only downside is it only lasted for one season(8 episodes).

Fat_Daddy_Cool Jun 11, 2007 07:29 PM

Is it just me or did no one mention Stargate SG1 and Stargate Atlantis.

I find I am catching up on Stargate when I am home watching my daughter....

dashrendar Jun 11, 2007 09:20 PM

Freaks and Geeks.... I love it so far. Reminds me of an era I like. Rock rules, man.

Lupine Jun 11, 2007 09:35 PM

Bastages. You've motivated me to load up Band of Brothers again. :mad:

Lupine Jun 11, 2007 11:27 PM

Damn I love this show (on episode 3). :drool:

thats because its not a good show to watch back to back, hence the topic title. stargates are best viewed one at a time.

Prison Break, Heroes

Kyle XY...:bleh: But only because it's on ABC Family, and there's a 16 year old daughter having all kinds of sex aside from vaginal (implied), getting fingered by some guy (implied), condoms being taken out of a panty drawer, and losing her virginity in some bushes at a house party...Though I will admit that all of this is in one episode...:eek:

Ignore this post. :bleh:

PrayForMojo Jun 13, 2007 10:53 AM

Yeah, Kyle XY is good. I'm looking forward to the new season.


There's a marathon coming up pretty soon of Eureka. I definitely recommend watching that show straight through if you get a chance. One of my favorite new shows of last season, and it's great to watch in blocks.

Diving In
Kyle has his first dream, in which he is underwater in a pool with Amanda swimming towards him. Suddenly, she vanishes, and Kyle wakes up wondering whether the dream was something he had previously experienced or a vision of future events. The next morning, Detective Breen questions Kyle on why he drew the key card insignia in pieces across his drawings, but Kyle still doesn't remember. Later, Lori, Josh and Kyle go to the pool while Nicole and Stephen try to enroll Kyle into high school. Meanwhile, the audience sees the mysterious man who had appeared in the red truck being fired from a company to which he had dedicated ten years of service. The man's name is Thomas Foss, and the symbol on his key card matches the one Kyle drew. It is also mentioned that a college professor named William Kern has been missing for some time.
At the swimming pool, Kyle learns that Amanda is a lifeguard. Lori meets with her friend Hillary, and later, Josh attempts to persuade his sister to get the name and phone number of a girl he saw at the pool. While they argue, Kyle jumps off the diving board and sinks. Amanda dives in to rescue him, and Kyle gets an erection from the close contact. Once Amanda and Kyle are out of the water, people crowd around them and start laughing, which embarrasses Kyle. Back home, Stephen explains what happened to Kyle.
Declan drops by the Tragers' house to ask Lori out to Jeff Preston's party that Friday. While Josh gives Kyle a pornographic magazine as a way to "handle the problem," Amanda appears at the front door to visit Kyle. She enters his empty room and notices many drawings of herself on his desk. When she turns around, she sees Kyle with Josh's magazine and quickly leaves in a flustered manner, much to Kyle's confusion. Later, Josh gets Kyle signed up for swimming lessons to give several more hours of free time during the day to Lori, who in turn acquires the information that Josh wanted from the girl, Ashleigh Redmond. He attempts to call her but hangs up from nervousness.
Kyle receives lessons from Amanda and learns very quickly. She explains how she was never angry with Kyle over his drawings, and he tells her how he draws things as he sees them in his mind, but he couldn't seem to get Amanda right. She asks him to visit her house the next afternoon so she could show him something. Back at the house, Nicole informs Stephen that Detective Breen hasn't found any known corporation with the insignia or been able to decrypt the computerized strip on the keycard. She also shows reluctance on sending Kyle to high school.
Tom Foss goes home to his apartment to find the man who fired him from the company sitting in an armchair, waiting for his arrival. He tells Foss that when he ran the keycard he returned through the system to deactivate it, it didn't match his assignment but did match Prof. Kern's clearance. He has also discovered the files on Kyle that Foss stole from the juvenile detention hall. Later, during a second visit, Foss breaks the man's neck as soon as his back is turned.

Kyle's drawing of Amanda after he dropped it into the swimming pool


At Amanda's house, Kyle learns the concept of drawing how he feels, not just what he sees. Her father had been an artist, and she tells Kyle that he died last year. Back in his room, Kyle uses both crayons and watercolors to convey how he feels into a drawing of Amanda. Josh calls Ashleigh again, and they agree to meet at Preston's party. Meanwhile, Lori slips a condom into her purse to take to the party later that night. Josh persuades Kyle to go with them to Preston's party as well by promising him that Amanda will be there; Kyle plans to give her the drawing.
At the party, Ashleigh and Josh go skinny dipping in an outside hot tub before they're forced out by chaperons. Lori leads Declan behind the shrubs outside and loses her virginity there as Hillary, who has had a crush on Kyle, throws herself on him in a drunken state. Lori comes back to force her friend off of Kyle, and out of spite, Hillary reveals that she had told Declan to ask her out and mocks her for being "so easy." Later, however, Declan defends Lori when one of his friends comments on her. When Amanda finally shows up, Kyle realizes that he loves her. But as he's about to hand her the drawing, her boyfriend Charlie shows up and gives her a kiss. Visibly hurt by this, Kyle leaves the scene and drops his drawing in a nearby pool. He had depicted Amanda swimming in the water.

Kyle XY is for kids. While I did watch it (mostly because my little brother was watching it), the whole thing felt pointless. Those kids at Kyle's family are so dumb that it makes me cry.

And no, Kyle XY is not a good series to watch back to back either, because the episodes are not related to each other that much.

PrayForMojo Jun 13, 2007 03:37 PM

There's a new show coming out on that channel called Greek that looks like it could be amazing. Looks like it will have some of the best stuff from my college years.

Payne3d Jun 18, 2007 02:35 AM

I recently saw Threshold and Surface back to back. Both canned prematurely I thought
Both scifi series.
Threshold picked up steam in the latter part of the season but it was a little to late.
I loved Surface though...I don't see why they had to can this one.
Absolutely an amazing show...apart from some dumb acting by that hot marine biolgist chick in certain parts of the episodes.


Those fat executives love the "cancel" buttons, I can tell you that much.

Could anybody recommend Invasion/Surface type series to me?

genci88 Jun 18, 2007 03:08 AM

I have heard others too say that Surface is good, along with Invasion.

Both were canceled and left with MAJOR cliffhangers, which is why I have never seen them. I really don't want to get into a story and never know the ending.

But I guess the people who like crap like reality shows are the ones who control television. I heard that 'A Simple Life' with Paris Hilton is being prepared for a new season. :cry:

The same people who like American Idol garbage.
Good choice to not watch these shows, but there is nothing better out there.
I wonder why scifi shows don't last long.
