A Review - SPOILERS FOR FIRST EPISODE.

http://www.craveonline.com/tv/reviews/1 ... -101-pilot

It does sound very convoluted. Pity, it looked quite good from the pre-publicity.

Haven't watched it yet but willing to give it a go.

There are some pretty awful new shows on at the moment:

Gave up on 'Ringer' after one episode.

Gave up on 'The Playboy Club' after 3 minutes.

'Terra Nova' has some potential but seems a bit too 'family friendly' for my taste. It has dinosaurs! How can they ruin this?

Comedy show 'How to be a Gentleman' was truly awful. It has Dave Foley! It has Murray from Flight of the Conchords! How can they make it really, really bad?

Up All Night (with Will Arnett and Christina Applegate) isn't bad necessarily but just doesn't draw me in.

Then there's 'Whitney' and '2 Broke Girls'. Truly awful standard sitcoms including awful stereotypical characters and stories. Both have already been picked up for a second season. Shouldn't have come as a surprise after the horrible 'Mike and Molly' got a second season last year.

On the positive side, I liked Suburgatory and kinda liked New Girl. Person of Interest has potential. Fresh Meat was pretty good.


Yup. I watch too much TV :)

Apparently, Ringer really kicks off in Ep 3.

Did either of you watch American Horror Story in the end? I've been watching it. It's unusual, not great, but different at least!

I don't have Sky so can't see either of them.

I'm tempted, but it's a little pricey. Warning - SPOILERS IN THE COMMENTS SECTION.

It is. The posters that they issued before it started were 101% creepy.

I think you might be too young, Author!

The rating is currently : to be advised, but I suspect it will be an 18.

Then again, I'm sure there are ways round that!!

It wasn't the scary I was thinking of.

There's mention in the comments of some rather mind-boggling gay sex!! :shock:
