    Caught episode 1 and so far seems quite interesting although knowing NBC, they will cancel it after 1 season :rolleyes:



    First 15 mins:

    It's NBC so I'll ignore it until it gets a second season. And by 'gets' I mean until I see it crop up on streaming, not just some "coming 2022!"

    Looks okay, Fringe is right up there for me so anything like it I'll give ago.
    Hopefully makes its way to either Netflix or Amazon at some point.

    Fringe was great. It had it's silly moments, but overall it was good.

    Goes to show one identical twin can be sexier than the other :D

    Love anything to do with parallel universes.

    Another program that has a British character speaking using American colloquialisms. When will writers learn?

    I tweeted about my disdain at the British character speaking using US colloquialisms and syntax and how it's just lazy on part of the scriptwriters, and Jonathan Tucker liked the tweet.

    I think I literally only enjoy the premise, might continue watching out of sheer curiosity.

    I watched first 15 minutes late last night in the bedroom with volume quite low. Turned it off and will try again on the main TV. Might be good but it did seem quite cheese already

    I think a well written parallel universe show would do really well. Plenty of storylines.

    That reminds me I need to finish off Counterpart but sad it's only a short series.

    7.4 on IMDB, not a good score for a TV show so I'm out. I tend to trust IMDB scores.

    Above 7 is well above average, On what planet is 7.4 "not a good score"??

    Besides that, it's only a couple of episodes in too so certainly not enough to build a useful rating on alone just yet.

    7.4 is bang average for a TV show, the kind of rating people who will watch any old guff give. :D

    I loved Counterpart but I think it ran out of steam a bit. Great show to start with though.
