    I've been excited about "Continuum" since I saw the previews. I usually check out all shows based on science-fiction/fantasy. Glad to hear it's good.

    I quite enjoyed it too, and have been wondering when we'll get to see season 2! So do you think we'll get to see it soon (up here in Canada), or will we have to wait until ScyFy gets through airing season 1 first?

    You'll have to post once it starts, hope you enjoy. I don't know if a difference in budgets is at all a factor, but I thought it way superior to Showcase's other recent export hit, Lost Girl.

    Yay, more Continuum watchers. :cheer: It took them (Showcase, the Canadian network) forever to announce season two, but yes it is happening. Since it was a summer show on Showcase, I expect season two in Canada will air summer 2013. :)

    Wow! Congratulations to the show, actors and behind the camera peeps. This is one of the few show I LOVE and especially thanks to Bear. Hope they get him a really big bone. :cheer2:

    So true. But I hope that does not mean other shows will copy. POI is such a cool show.

    I will repeat a comment written below the video. Looks interesting but what the heck is it about?

    1600 Penn has a sneak preview on 12/17. I'm going to check it out - previews look funny.

    When I first saw the title i thought "Woohoo - a sci-fi series about a screaming female creatures", but after watching the preview, it looks something like "Justified".

    Carrie singing The Sound of Music. No twang and she sounds amazing. :swoon:

    I thought this was going to be a miniseries of the novel by Henry James and got all excited. :(

    Her phrasing needs help and her voice needs more training for those songs. Then again, I compare modern singers to Julie Andrews and Mary Martin - and those two voices were trained for the theater rather than for pop music.

    Just for comparison - Mary Martin http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=tkIBerEFJHU#t=48s
    Julie Andrews in concert - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33hvuob9AyQ

    Carrie has a lot to live up to; and a long way to go, to reach the level of Mary Martin and Julie Andrews. IMO.

    I don't care. :) I enjoyed her performance. And I have heard the Julie Andrews version and agree that she is a better singer than Carrie (and I do realize that Carrie does have some flaws in her singing). But I preferred Carrie's performance probably mainly because I don't really care for Julie's style of singing (I'm in complete no teknik when it comes to singing so I don't have the vocabulary for what I'm trying to say) and I'm also a borderline Carrie uber. :lol:

    I don't like the key change on the song Carrie sang. I like the original key much better. However, she does sound better than I thought. I know she can sing but I wasn't sure if she could mask the twang. With more practice, and she has a year, she could do quite well but if all the songs are brought down in the key she sang this one in then I don't know how I will like that.

    Good news for Canadians: Netflix Canada is now saying they will carry the new season of Arrested Development when it's available. (Previously they said they wouldn't.) :cheer:

    Story here.

    I thought you had made a mistake by saying the show will not be back until March. But alas there was no mistake unfortunately. NBC may have finally put the final nail in Grimm's coffin. There is no way this series could survive a four month absence. They were supposed to be back in a month with a holiday episode. :mad:

    I will never understand how a show like "2 Broke Girls" gets such high ratings.

    I've tried to give it a chance, but I find it to be one of the dumbest shows on TV and can barely sit through an episode. What am I missing about it?

    Hmmm, tvbythenumbers shows Grimm under "Certain renewal" (which I found a little surprising) http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/20...ngraded-nashville-still-on-the-bubble/160866/
    but if the break was originally supposed to be 1 month and now it's 4, that's odd. I got my date from wiki - could it be wrong?

    I did like that the final image was "to be continued..........sorry" :p

    "Grimm" is safe for renewal. It's one of NBC's highest rated 18-49 demos and wins it's Friday @ 9pm timeslot.

    I agree though, I don't like such a long gap in the season. But don't forget, "Grimm" started it's new season in August following the Olympics. Much earlier than most shows.

    At least they said they were sorry... :lol:

    I feel kind of bad that she gets so much grief. It seems a kind of thankless role.

    Got caught up on Apt 23 last night, including the DWTS episode. It kills me that this show isn't going to make it, it's the only comedy I watch.

    The Hunt sounds interesting. Seems to clearly be taken from The Hunger Games. Just let them kill each other, that author was on to something...
