We watched the show last night and really enjoyed it. Let's give those that hated the show a chance to complain and I'll close this thread and start a new one after the next episode for those that continue to watch.


Same here, watched it yesterday and enjoyed it. Will continue to watch

I was aware of that. Thus the stultifying "Tusk" theme that they just kept looping over and over awkwardly. Worst attempt at an action TV series score I've ever heard. Sounded like the music editor cut some rough "Tusk" loops in over the scenes as a temp score and they accidentally left it all in as it was. Yikes, brutal.


I loved it.

Well, not score but just a badly butchered bunch of instrumental loops from the original "Tusk". It went on and on and on like an erratically skipping broken record. I shudder to think of it.

I was so engrossed with the on-screen action that I completely ignored the "music".

How can anyone forget (loosely quoted) "When I come back I'm gonna stick it in your heart."? Loved it!

No dots to connect Tom. Some watch TV just for eye candy, some watch for story lines and acting. If the cast is hot, fine, but that's not a reason to watch or not watch IMO.



And nobody's horse is quite as high as yours TomCat, but we do appreciate your posts in this thread not being your normal novels that nobody reads.

Hmmm. Other than the fact that you are on record as actually connecting those dots, I can't with a straight face find much of any strong argument with any of the rest. :lol:

BTW, the novel will be out in Q1 of 2014. Pre-orders are accepted right here.

But then you might be surprised at the level of regular positive feedback my posts get (mostly in PMs because they'd be pilloried if they did that in the threads), which I'm sure you must get also :rolleyes:. The news flash here is that I don't post for you; I post for me. Some actually read and appreciate, but that's only gravy; I use the internet as a place to organize my thoughts and hone any minimal writing chops I can muster, and that is the only reason other than to help answer people's questions. Whether lurkers with their pointy little heads read them is of zero importance, and most don't have the reading comprehension ability of a fruit bat anyway (this forum being a prime example lately). You, on the other hand, are free to have an opinion regarding the level of success there, but lots of positive opinions are already on record, so your's probably wont really amount to much.

No one cares, but just to set the record straight, I do not watch a show for eye candy (Baywatch was cancelled, right?), and I am a little bewildered that this has somehow hijacked the thread. It might make me watch a little longer Cough![Continuum]Ahem! before jetissoning a series, though. And I can appreciate it when its there. Sue me.

**************************************

It also seems a little bush league to be knocking actresses (not Spart, BTW) in their mid-thirties just because they don't fit your particular fantasy, even if they might be better-looking than 99.999% of the rest of the women in the world. And likening them to 67-year-olds who were never hot; pretty weak. But then that from folks who seems to think this forum is only a good place to empty their garbage and care very little for anyone else's opinion other than it presents them an opportunity to stomp all over it (that's all we needed was one more @#$%^&*%$#@! to make the forum complete).

The secret to building credibility is to not present weak arguments that stretch the truth with too much hyperbole. Do that, and it all starts to sound like Charlie Brown's teacher, "Wah wah wah, wah wah-wah wah, wa wah." Try the opposite of that, just once.

And Taylor Swift? Apparently over the hill, about to hit the wall, right? We don't need to blur the lines between the upper limit of who's lost it and the lower limit of statutory pedophilia any more than we have, or no one at any age would be acceptable.

It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

This series has potential. I just want to know how the captured defector managed not to soil himself while locked inside the car trunk all that time? :sure:

Just to calm the hysterics, nobody in here watches a series exclusively for eye-candy, and nobody has ever said they did. Let's just stop the straw man routine. And can different guys disagree on who's hot and who's not? That's what fuels half of all bar conversation. It doesn't need to result in hating or ad hominem attacks.

Are attractive women often utilized as a significant factor in production values by TV productions because they know it boosts ratings? Do refs blow pass interference calls in the end zone?

Because he looked too clean when they let him out of the trunk. He was also too spry for a guy who was bound and gaged and in the same position all that time. He should have had severe muscle cramps. The writers need to brush up on the human anatomy.

:lol: I can't even remember what the show was about anymore. I would do a recap of the previous 75 posts but we would have to rate it TV MA LSV.

Or the human biology for that matter. THAT long in the trunk something shouldda stunk! I thought for sure when the trunk was open and the new FBI neighbor came up it was over.
