I just watched it. Thought it was like a bad episode of the Outer Limits. But I'm guessing it will be like Masters of Horror with different people making them each week so potentially there could be some good'ns

The episode was alright, not hugely exciting though. The other episodes sound better, hopefully they have more than two sets.

I think the Steven Hawking narration spoils it, I can't help but laugh even though he is saying something serious, and it sounds like the sort of thing the outer limits' narrator would say.

It's been mentioned here before IIRC. I've been waiting for this since they first announced it but hadn't heard anything in ages. Shame the reviews aren't that positive, but hopefully they can improve if there's a second series.

the latest according to aicn was it was for some reason dropped from showtime to ABC and then cancelled after 6 eps, only 4 of which are they showing. The question is when and where are we going to see them in this country? Bravo hopefully will pick them up as they run Masters of Horror.

This week was a little better although the ending was a bit disappointing. Again reminded me a lot of the Outer Limits particularly that one where they got that message from those aliens and they couldn't translate it so they attacked just as they decoded the message that they came in peace (or something like that, was a long time ago )

Oh Locke and the bloke from X-files was in it too.

I really should consider applying for a job at the Radio Times with a synopsis like that

If your worried about being spoiled I suggest you don't read this thread!

Saw ep2......

Well it was quite nice having Terry O'quinn but really the whole thing was rubbish. I mean it was a nice enough message but nothing riveting or terribly profound

Well I want to keep an eye on the thread to see whats happening, ie will it come out of cancellation, will all 6 be shown, and most importantly when it will be shown in this country and what channel, there's too many channels to keep an eye on these days and the forums are an indispensable tool for finding when somethings going to be on.

Besides isn't it possible for people to discuss episodes without spoilers (or use the spoiler tags when necessary) I tohught that was the forums general policy until somthing has been aired in the UK?

I'm not sure about the policy but surely the same the same thing applies whether a show is airing here or in the US, you need to be careful reading a thread if you haven't seen the latest episode.

For the things you care about, why not just come back in 4 weeks and see if we're talking about the latest episode? Or better yet wait until this thread dies and if it resurfaces chances are it's someone posting to tell us about a UK airing.

It would be much more simple if people used spoiler tags.
