The Hoard Potato: Another One Bites The Dust  
Wow. The Eleventh Hour scored a new record. quelonzia and I almost killed it before the opening credits. I don't think we made it a full three minutes past them, though. The no-holds-barred, unequivocal stridency of HUMAN CLONING IS BAD BAD BAD pissed us off instantly. Hearing "abomination" tossed around lightly sets both of our teeth on edge.

It just seemed like the rationale was "cloning is illegal, so it must be bad". It's like it was trying to provide a fictionalized support for the Administration's anti-research stance in the same way that they use 24 to justify their enthusiasm for torture.

So that's four new genre shows down.

And, yeah, part of it is that we simply have too many hours of television programmed into the DVR -- even with all we've dumped, we still have 14 hours a week recording.

Well, that assumes that we don't drop My Own Worst Enemy and Crusoe after we see their premieres.

YOU CAN'T CLONE A HUMAN SOUL! Who'd want to make SOULLESS FREAK ABOMINATIONS! <.<

See, you watch things so I don't have to. ;)

Wow, bad enough to need a blink tag.

I don't think I've seen appropriate use of blink in quite a long time. ;) Thanks for helping me avoid timewastage. I don't have nearly as many hours of tv programming as you do, but nor do I have the spare time to watch it. So when James said, "Let's watch Eleventh Hour", I was hesitant. Yay for hesitant! ;)

I turned it off at just the same point or so. It felt so much like this show really wants to be X-files when it grows up.

Funny; there's so many genre shows on now its like, they have more opportunity to be bad. :p

Oh, they had plenty of opportunity to be bad when they were SCARCE, too.

Man from Atlantis?
The Fantastic Journey?
Manimal?

Terrible shows -- but during their tenure, they were the only new SF on the air. We had to watch them, or go without!

Now, there are enough genre shows on that we have the luxury to blow off the bad ones.

And I take almost as much pleasure in that as I do in actively watching the good shows and the shows I enjoy.

Yes, I'm well aware that not all the shows I enjoy are GOOD shows.

I didn't make it past the commercial blitz during CSI. My "interest" was up in seeing Rufus Sewell, but died quickly.
