CSI miami and NY are what I'm waiting for. Also 24 but I don't think it's out til jan. Tudors is another I want to see but I'm not sure who would carry it in the US. Heroes too!

I had hopes last year for that Sarah Conner Chronicles but I believe it stank. I couldn't get past Miley Cyrus playing at being a Terminator.

I'm actually enjoying the new series "Flashpoint" that is filmed in Toronto, so far it has been quite good. I still need to watch last seasons "Lost" as it is still on my HD PVR.

I liked Flashpoint too! It's an interesting take on the cop show. A kind of kinder, gentler cop show demonstrating the psychology behind hostage negotiating and ending a situation without firing a shot. It suceeds at this without clobbering us over the head with mamby-pamby messages.

I didn't think it was all that bad, not as good as I'd hoped, but better than most other offerings from the networks. By "most" I'm referring to all those un-watchable reality shows and contest et al.

Didn't catch Miley Cyrus,.... or are you talking about Summer Glau?

Yeah, I don't get what you're saying about Miley Cyrus?

Summer Glau plays the part excellent in the Sarah Conner Terminator series. I knew I'd like her in it after watching her steal the show as 'River Tam' in the Firefly series and movie.

I don't mind Terminator at all. It's actually quite good. Fox thought so, as they renewed for a second season, and they're notorious for axing anything that isn't a top notch sure winner.

I thought the debut of Fringe was quite good. Another winner by J. J. Abrams of (Felicity, Alias, Lost).

I think there's a lot of good programs to watch on OTA channels ... that's the reason I cancelled my SAT service of 8 yrs :bigsmile: (I only watched a couple of hours a week and I thought I was wasting $$$).

One that I liked, but they stopped showing because of the writers strike was "CANE" ... I wonder if they will show it in the future :yes:

I like Flashpoint, last night was a good episode.

Does anybody watch "Swingtown"??? ... at the begining I thought it will be good (remembering the 80's), but I have not watched a complete episode because I prefer action, mistery, etc.

:T This was the show to beat IMO. Excellent! J. J. knows his stuff.

I continue to follow Prison Break, but I am actually growing a little bit bored with it.

I am glad 24 is not going to start until January... maybe FOX will be live in our area with HD by then.

My opinion is quite low on Prison Break this year.

Everything appears so forced. The acting seem like acting. I simply don't buy into the story at all.

I liked it a lot the first season and it wasn't too bad last year. But so far this year, it's bad acting and bad writing IMO.

I also liked the premiere of HBO's latest called True Blood. At least the opener seemed pretty good. I liked Six Feet Under, and it's the same guy who did this one.

Yeah... we got three free months of HBO with our new receiver. About the only thing I watch on it is boxing, but I did catch part of True Blood and thought it was interesting how they wrote that script the way they did. I plan to watch it again to see the entire show. I am not sure how far I'll get though, once the free HBO runs out, I doubt we'll buy it... but at some point I can always rent future episodes if I end up taking a liking to it.

Seems like there is another new show that is supposed to start up next week that looked interesting. I am drawing a blank right now.

I couldn't live without my movie channels. It's really the only source of movies I have other than an occasional DVD I pick up.

Do you mean ... HBO, Cinemax, Showtime,etc.???

I don't know if they changed the programing, but when I had Dish ... they showed the same movies, and from time to time there was a new one :yes:

Your right, they faked his shooting. It was a very good season openner.

Are you watching this tonight??? or Will you be watching the new series "The Mentalist" on CBS???

I have to decide on which one to watch ... also, I had to decide between "Without a Trace" and "Law and Order:SVU" :sad: ... I have an old DVR, but I don't think I can watch one program and record another at the same time (is not TIVO or any other new DVR ... maybe I need a new toy after all :bigsmile: ... something that can record HD and 5.1:yes:)

I watched Fringe and decided to pass on the Mentalist. I really didn't want to add another show to my already large list. Too many shows.

I thought the Heroes opener was pretty good.

CSI Miami was its usual parody of itself. It's hard not to laugh at that show, but I still watch it - I don't know what attracts me to that show, but I still watch it.... I suppose its the mind numbing, full of holes, simplicity of the plot at an hour when I don't need anything difficult to thing about. Or maybe it's H taking off and putting on his glasses while holding his gun around his chin. Or maybe it's the females working in completely inappropriate clothes for working. It's certainly the best camera work and showcase of HDTV I've seen.
