    I just saw some teasers for a new A&E show called Bates Motel. It focuses on the killer and his relationship with his mother. I am really looking forward to it, I love anything with horror. It also comes from someone involved in Lost and Friday Night Lights. Lost was my favorite show ever and I have heard wonderful things about FNL. Starts in 2013 but not sure exactly when.

    Just caught up with my episodes of Raising Hope and love it just as much as I did when the show first started.

    I loved Continuum, my fave new show. Time travel plus police procedural (it works), Vancouver set as Vancouver. :D I'm pleased to see that it will air in other countries. They packed a lot into season one, at 10 episodes long (I'm looking at you, Revolution).

    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. :)

    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.
