Ok, did anyone other than nyself see this as a total Torwchwood ripoff? Good lord.

A Gwen substitute, a Jack Substitute, an Owen Substitute, how many more? And the opening scenes. "We've' been looking for someone like you"...an underground facility, totaly independent of the govt, investigatiing aliens...OH PLEASE.

And as you said last night when we were talking about it, the cave man is right out of a Geico commercial.  Amanda Tapping kept on going in and out of her accent as well.  I'll watch it for a bit to see if it gets any better or not, but you're right it is a rip off of Torchwood, including the rain falling in the first episode.  The snake like appendage coming out of the Boy was very reminiscent of Vlad and the bald insane bad guy reminded me very much of Prince, so I saw a few Lexx undertones as well.

Exactlly rght, but since it's a ripoff of both Torchwood and Lexx, I'm compelled to watch it, in spite of the bad accents. I do have to admit, at least they had a hot blonde kick-ass female team member on there....

I'm hooked on watching this show and quite like it. (Maybe it's "Torchwood" for those of us waiting for that show to come to the Sci-Fi Channel someday - I don't get BBC America.)

You caught the detail that the cute action figure blonde played by "Emilie Ullerup" :P from Denmark, is none other than the offspring of Jack the R--, right? (her mom being a sprite little old lady of a modest 157 years not looking but 12 years older than Ashley.) I suspect many more details from Helen Magnus (Helen the Great???) extensive past will surface in future episodes.


I also chuckled when the guy freaked at seeing the ice-age caveman with exactly the same thought running through my mind - "What - you've never seen a Geico commercial?"

But I guess I didn't quite catch if the setting for the "SANCTUARY" estate is in Canada near the City where a previous LEXX convention was held, or in the US near Seattle or thereabouts? It appears a great deal of the estate is above ground and across a large body of water from some major city -and built almost like a castle.

This week's episode was pretty good, based on real myths instead of invented ones...the Morrigan, a preternatural being possesed of great powers, ( in this case, 3 sisters) whose favorite animal familiar is the Raven, and can lay waste to multitudes of people by thought alone....it had some pretty good FX as well, and as the facility, it's totally green screen, or so say the people involved in the filming..

And I actually like this show a lot better than the overly-hyped "Primeval"....

:hblinks:

I don't know Maya, I think Primeval is better.  The CGI when the Doctor was walking down the stairs was really BAD, you could tell it was very fake by the way it flickered and didn't match the stairwell.  I liked Amanda Tapping in the Stargate series, but her English accent is horrible in this series.  I'll probably continue to watch it to see if it gets any better, but so far I'm not overly impressed with it.  I read elsewhere that the caveman was supposed to be a Sasquatch, but he looks like a caveman out of the Geico commercials.  It seems like they took alot of different series and melded them into one and are just repeating things we've seen in other shows.

I've been trying to give this show a chance, but I keep falling asleep half way through it. Not sure if it's because I'm so tired by Friday night or if the show is just that boring. Ah well, I'll keep trying to watch it and see if it improves. Any one else like it or not?

I've recently been able to watch episode 1 of series one.  The one where the kid is that creature.

Then I jumped to watching episode 3 of series two and well I fell asleep watching it.  It's so good damn boring and slow and there's been two many series like it and yeah I think it's bit like Torchwood too.

It is getting a little better, but I'm so tired by that time on Friday night, I've ended up falling asleep trying to watch it the last few eps. I should start recording it on my DVR so I don't miss it.

It gets better each season. It's currently on season 3 hiatus. However, I only watch it because of Jonathon Young (he plays Nikola Tesla)
