    Sorry about being a party pooper, but I think this is a bad show. I thought it started out very interesting (for 5 episodes or so), but then got really bad. The worst thing about it is that the plot is driven by insanely idiotic decisions by the main and supporting characters. The wife's decision to return home because of the blackout was the dumbest thing I've seen on TV this past year, except for everything that happened under the dome of course. There was also an insanely idiotic decision that was repeated in almost every episode: They didn't tell the kids what Drill had done to other kids.

    The first few episodes had pretty high Nielsen ratings, but by episode 12 they were down to an 18-49 rating of only 0.6. I think it would need twice that to have a realistic chance of renewal. So we will almost certainly never find out what would have happened in episode 14.

    I never understood why people liked Farscape, but Mr. Robot is awesome. :smile:

    I like Mr. Robot too. And I do think Farscape is not as good as Stargate or Star Trek. But Farscape do qualify as a great Sci-Fi show.

    I thought it was OK, but not more. Maybe the 6th best show of the summer after Mr. Robot, Ray Donovan, Tyrant, True Detective and Dark Matter.

    I'm with Fredrik on both The Whispers and Humans. Humans stayed interesting for much longer, but devolved into cliched plot devices in the final stretch. Both shows seemed to fall apart around the time the 'amnesiac' character arcs had ended.

    I dont know why,but, while looking Humans,
    Something,in my head was trying to link with a movie,
    AUTOMATA..
    machines made themselves..
    I forgot that term!!
    In next season Niska may do the same thing.. Consciousness !!

    I agree about the bad decisions of the characters. It was really disappointing when the plan to capture Drill failed. I mean they had this entire plan, and it was successful. Then they just backed down because of the presence of a child. While I understand the sentiment about not wanting to kill a kid, they ultimately knew that beyond this plan, the only way to kill him, would have cost the life of one child anyway. So, it was this one, or someone else. Ultimately the sacrifice would be made, they just allowed him to wreak total havoc in the meantime. Even if they had not killed the kid after drill possessed him, they could have still controlled him much easier.

    I think the way the subplots fizzle and redirect everything back to the main plot is lazy writing. If they had succeeded in killing Drill, and the show kept going, it would have needed to take on a whole new dynamic (story progression), which would have been much more interesting.

    Ha, that said, I still watch it though.
