    It was so-so last night. It didn't have the edginess of the original. You never really knew who was good or bad which is what made it so compelling. This new version was too much like dollhouse with the big gym scenes and Nikita's *insider*. I'll watch a couple more times, but I don't think it'll survive.

    ITA. I saw all of China Beach a couple of years ago when one of the cable channels repeated the entire series. I had forgotten how excellent it was.

    I watch a lot of British TV and he's popped up a few times ... but I think his best work (that I've seen) was in the mini-series The Last Enemy. Good thriller stuff. He often plays the mild-mannered type, so it will be very interesting to see him as Sherlock.

    And yes, Jekyll is superb.

    Yup, that's the one. She plays the assistant barrister role -- very different from Martha Jones!

    I stumbled across Terriers on FX last Wednesday at 10:00pm and thouroughly enjoyed it. Don't be surprised if you haven't heard of it, evidently FX did little promoting of it and the ratings stunk for the premier because of that. But it's a fun Private Detective show starring the always excellent Donal Logue as an down on his luck ex-cup who does unlicensed PI work to get by. He stumbles upon a major case which is the overarching story that will be told over 13 episodes and then each ep will have small time PI stories blended in. It's a typical FX show, with an edge to it, but because Logue is in it, that edge is tempered somewhat. Definately not for kiddies, but I really liked it. Evidently critics like it too. I just hope FX gives it a chance to find an audience.

    Here's more:

    Funny coincidence - just as I tune in to Showcase to watch Sherlock Holmes, I read the first new posts on this thread and they're all about how great the show is . So far, it really does seem great.

    I don't know if there's new management at Showcase but they're really hitting it out of the ballpark recently. I'm now hooked on Haven and Silent Witness, I really enjoyed the first season of Being Human and now look forward to the Lost Girl premiere on Sunday.

    Nikita's pilot is supposed to repeat Saturday night at 9:00 if anyone missed it but wants to give it a try.

    I miss getting the TV Guide with all of the new shows described in one issue. I know that you can get the information easily enough online, but it just doesn't seem the same. Perhaps I'll look for the Entertainment Weekly fall tv issue, or have I already missed it?
    Haven't read the entire thread yet but I got my EW Fall TV Preview issue yesterday so it should be out on newstands this coming week. I assume the TV Guide Fall Preview is either out by now or will be out this week too. I haven't read it yet (was out last night) but it looks pretty comprehensive and seems to cover just about every show coming this fall.

    Hear Hear!!!

    They were able to work things out for WKRP, so hopefully it can be worked out for China Beach too. I still have the Special Tribute episode w/scenes from the show mixed around the Vietnam Lady Vets telling stories of their time over there on tape somewhere around here. That's something I'll never tape over.

    When it comes to returning shows, the one that I'm really looking forward to/counting down the minutes eagerly is for the return of Criminal Minds. Can't wait to see the resolution to this one!!

    Saw "Sherlock" last might- loved it. Benedict Cumberbatch (love the name!) is my new crush.

    Sorry David Tennant.

    But seriously- I was dubious when I first heard the concept, but it really works. I've been a Holmes fan since I devoured the books the summer I was 9 years old, and revisit the stories periodically.This version is really in the spirit of the stories, I think.

    And the chemistry between the 2 leads is great- and I like the Watson character too.
    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

    Loved, loved, loved Sherlock! For me, Sherlock Holmes has never been my favourite fictional detective, but the modern transplantation works. Really, really well! The acting was terrific, the characters' chemistry excellent and believable, and of course Steven Moffat's tight and witty writing. Cudos to all.

    What did you think of Lost Girl? It thought it was just ok. Some interesting ideas, but they seemed to be trying too hard: "we're trying to create a demon universe that no one else has done before." And they tried to cram way too much into the first episode -- a common mistake in North American TV series. I'll watch 1 more episode at least, but it up against Masterpiece and New Tricks, so I might give this one a miss.

    Being Human, oth, I loved. Not sure when Showcase will pick up season 2, but I see that it's out on DVD later this month.

    Hawaii 5-0 is opposite Castle tonight! Oh decisions...decisions! But I think I will go with Hawaii 5-0 and watch Castle later.

    I checked out The Event tonight and I thought it was pretty good. I'll definitely watch that show again and I hope they answer questions a little faster in upcoming episodes. I can't get hooked on another show that doesn't answer questions along the way (aka, FlashForward, Lost, etc). I've been watching Hawaii Five O tonight too and that one is all ready a ton of fun. I love the cast, the story keeps your attention with all the action, and I think it's going to be a keeper for me. They just used the "Book him Dano" line which made my night and I really need to remember that Daniel Dae Kim's character is not Jin from Lost, LOL

    No kidding.

    I'm waiting up until 12 to watch The Event on the west coast feed, but I swear, as much as I love these types of shows, it's history (and fast) if it drags and drags and drags with no answers.

    I looked up "Sherlock" on the PBS web site and there was a small picture of him. He looks like a guy who had a very small part in one of the Hornblower episodes
    that were on A & E (remember when they had good stuff?) several years ago.

    I just watched The Event and it was highly annoying until the last 10 minutes. Now I'm interested, but it's qualified interest. I'm less concerned about answers and more concerned about constant shifting back and forth in time. And making the characters a hell of a lot more memorable than they were tonight.
