Showtime... New Shows....

Time traveler James Cole (Aaron Stanford) travels from the year 2043 to the present day to stop the release of a deadly virus by the enigmatic organization known as "The Army of the Twelve Monkeys". That virus, in Cole's original timeline, caused the death of 93.6% of the world population. Cole will be helped by the brilliant virologist Cassandra Railly (Amanda Schull) and a math genius with mental issues, Jennifer Goines (Emily Hampshire).

I forgot to add this to yesterday's post. Okay so this is a show I watched all the way through and I don't know how to describe it really except to say it is a fantastic and unpredictable show. More than once I was totally surprised and all the time travel. I loved it!

Just saw the first episode. This show might have potential if done correctly but I have a feeling it won't. Well have to see.

Right from go I was bored and really sadden by the acting. Drop.

I loved it last season and this season doesn't seem to be changing my mind. I was routing for these characters the entire time. I love a good Service Men story that is all about the heroes.

Felt like a rip off of Firefly and Andromeda. I haven't nixed the show but I don't know if I'll be able to stick it out unless it gets really interesting.

An alternative history set in 19th-century England around the time of the Napoleonic Wars, it is based on the premise that magic once existed in England and has returned with two men: Gilbert Norrell and Jonathan Strange. Centring on the relationship between these two men, the novel investigates the nature of "Englishness" and the boundaries between reason and unreason, Anglo-Saxon and Anglo-Dane, and Northern and Southern English cultural tropes/stereotypes.

Really good. At first, I wasn't sure I was enjoy the show but everytime it ended I would be so upset by that. So good. A must watch. I really love Jonathan Strange. Mr. Norrell pisses me off and the whole Fae aspect is sooo hard to deal with but then it is neat to see and the effects on this show are so cool especially when Strange gets going.

Odd but intriguing though they are bugging me with the idea that the adults can't handle what is happening and are instead indoctrinating the children. Not okay. I suspect if they would tell the truth then the Reckonings wouldn't have to happen. I think if people really knew what was happening they'd be able to work together a lot better and there would be none of this secrecy and subterfuge but then I guess that is what the show is about. I do like the show seems to move rather quickly. There isn't months of wondering what is happening.

I have no idea if I want to keep watching this one. It seems interesting enough but I thought it was going to be about ghosts and it is about aliens, I think. I am a little curious to see what is going to happen but I'm still on the fence with this one.

Got to see the preview episode of Supergirl which I actually really liked. It reminded me of the early Smallville episodes with a little of the rose color glasses and some silliness but I think it might be good. Hopefully they won't stay too fluffy but I'm ready to watch a woman superhero who is coming into her own.
