Or as one clown on the Houston ABC affiliate called it "NASA Gets Nasty." I mean, bumpin' belly buttons in space? Come on. Who wouldn't want to see that. I just wonder about the no gravity bit interfering with the "for every action...", you know?

My wife and I are looking forward to it. Looks like it could be very entertaining.

We're going to watch it. But after reading the blurb on the ABC site, the first thing I said to my wife was, "Great, a Lost in space".
"Wait, I mean, Lost, in space."

We like Lost. It has its issues. But overall it's a fun show. And it looks like ABC is just trying to ride those coat tails for another series.

We'll watch it.

But the last line one their web site promo is "Maybe there is something to this fate thing after all." My reaction is "Or maybe not."

Yep, I'll give it a shot.

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Not sure, but this show is not going to make it.
Or if Its even worth viewing,

This show DG, seems more like what would happen if the programs "Grey's Anatomy" and "Lost" have a love child.
Lots of flash backs to give you that back story feel. Although, it is a Cool space ship.

Hunky boy astronauts with the required geek and one black character (the Commander w/ a problem) matched with an International collection of hot "next generation Y" girl astronauts wearing heavy makeup even in their space suits!

All this, while there is a "mystery" that the crew will face as they go to the unknown... say it w/ that deep TV announcer's voice
A mystery like in the movie "2001" is being hinted about...
"we'll tell the the crew in 43 days":rolleyes: Then at the end of this show and a bit of spit saves the day :nono2:

Rate it *1½ stars out of 5 in space;

Since only 3.7 Million people watched it, I don't see it lasting that long

We watched it last night. It was excellent! Very compelling... it is a shame that it was dumped into the summer season. I could see this have lasting many years, otherwise.

And it will be fair!

Honestly tried to watch this new breed of "Virtuality" and gave up after one hour.

Do we have a zero stars rating?
