    I liked the first episode of "Copper." With that and the new season of "Dr Who" coming plus "Dramaville" ("Luther" reruns for now) I will be watching BBC America more. Mind you I do not understand their obsession with "Top Gear" and Gorden Ramsey. A little goes a long way....Oh and bravo to them for letting us see "Battlestar Galitica" again---fantastic show.

    Finally, a date for Perception: Sept 5. Bravo Canada has been promoing this all summer but only just announced the date. The premise sounds pretty retread ... but it stars Eric McCormack, which is reason enough for me to watch.

    I believe it already aired in the US -- anyone watch it?

    I have to give kudos to Stephen Mangan and Matt Le Blanc ---well the whole cast really-- for the Episodes season finale. The bit with the arm: I love laughing out loud and don't do it as much I as I would like when I'm watching comedy. But tonight's show was lol funny. That show had an ok first season and a spectacular sophomore season imho.

    I like it. Yeah, it's a bit clunky in parts, but I still enjoy it. It's like watching a dumbed-down version of NUMB3RS, but a better version of Unforgettable. I've never watch Monk, but I've heard there's some parallels with that show too. Nothing groundbreaking, but not everything has to be. Eric McCormack is the only good thing, but fortunately he is front and center.

    I love this show. Eric McCormack is hilarious in it. And hawt. Yeah, the rest of the cast is meh, but he makes up for it.

    Perception is just ok. I don't care for McCormack in this and dislike the rants that his character goes on at least once per episode. It seems to me like some of the scenes (including the rants) are in there, not to further the plot or character development, but to give McCormack a chance to overact. However, they must be doing something right because I'm still watching.

    ETA: Rachel whatever is miscast (I just can't take her seriously as an FBI agent) but I do like grad student.

    There is never too much Top Gear (the UK version, anyway.) Ever.

    I can't take Battlestar Galactica seriously. They just took a cheesy show that was such a ripoff of Star Wars initially they got sued and tarted it up to show they are Serious and Pretentious and Meaningful twits. (Only the word I normally use is spelled almost like "twit" but doesn't have an i.) I can't stand SF that insists on being dark just to be taken seriously. Especially when they cap it by failing anthropology forever.

    USA has been running heavy with NCIS (with a marathon coming Moday.) I'm about ready for that new season to start ANY TIME NOW....

    Whoo! Come sit by me. I always feel like I'm to get lynched for calling the new BSG the pretentious crap that it is....

    I sort of like Castle still, but I'm waiting to see how it jumps the shark after the season finale. I just don't trust the writers at this point to pull this off well. It'll either be someone gets cold feet so we can go back to status quo or the dynamic's dead.

    Yeah, usually when a long & drawn out "will they or won't they" turns into couplehood before the end of a series, you can expect all kinds of stumbling blocks, misunderstandings, and related sillyness. Friends, Gilmore Girls, Big Bang Theory to name just three have all gone down this road with varying degrees of success.

    I'm trying to remain optimistic about Castle, but time will tell. It's not must-see TV for me, but I do generally enjoy the tone & approach. Though for me, I find the prospect of the continuation of the super-sekret conspiracy plot (re: Kate's mother etc.) to be far more worrysome than what might or might not happen with Rick & Kate as a couple.

    Just watched Go On. Aww, it was sweet. The part where the older woman put the cake box over the picture frame...well, it got to me.

    Perception is one of those shows that is likely to be retooled/recast because there is something worth saving there. Eric is the type of actor who can carry a show by himself for a time, but he's going to need more help than he's currently getting.

    I'm very optimistic for the future of Go On. There's a certain charm to it that is very appealing.

    But drek like The Last Resort can't be saved by Andre Braugher. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for a good submarine story, but the plot on this disaster makes no sense at all. I predict 4 episodes before it's cancelled.

    I am looking forward to Last Resort as well. Braugher's great but for me, it's all about Speedman. Felicity and Ben Forever!
