I see this show taking the Fringe nose-dive from season 4, without the built success of intrigue and buzz built by the first 3 seasons. I dunno, I'll give it a few more episodes to find it's stride.

I watched Limitless, from DVR, last night. I'm more optimistic for this show. Maybe it's Bradley Cooper lending his character to the series pilot, or seeing Dexter's sister on screen again, I'm not sure. I ended the first episode feeling like this series is of higher quality than Minority Report. I expected the reverse to be true, from series spots (and their respective film's reputations).

:green: Exactly

I really enjoyed limitless. Very well done. Actually going somewhere I wanna see.

I really love the premise of Quantico but scared to watch n case it's as bad as people are saying. How is it does anyone know?

...aaaaand I'm done. I got about half way through the second episode, cancelled the series recording, and deleted the episode.

I'm really enjoying Trevor Noah on The Daily Show. He's bringing a little more edge but dealt with the recent shootings well and the Trump as an African President was awesome.
Also enjoying the new reporters :lol:

So far the only new shows I'm enjoying this year are Limitless, Quantico, and Scream Queens.

How does "Limitless" compare to say "The Walking Dead" or "Heroes"?

Limitless reminds me more of castle or a light hearted burn notice. Has charm tho

Heroes reborn isn't awful

Yeah, Limitless is a light and fluffy procedural. Which I don't usually watch too many of anymore, but I like the cast and concept so I will keep up with it for now.

I only watched the first night of Heroes Reborn. I didn't like any of the new characters, and I was reminded of how painful it was to endure the last few seasons of the original run.

I have not watched Heroes Reborn yet...
But I am really enjoying Limitless... a smart funny procedural. And a great cast.

Not so much Scream Queens. I really want to like it... but it's trying sooo hard to be quirky. I can't seem to fully get on board with it. But I am still watching... maybe it will click.

I gave the opening episode of Heroes a chance. I loved the original. I didn't go back for a second episode, despite being a big fan of zachery levi. The thursday night real estate on my tv/dvr is already packed between NFL and WWE and Heroes wasn't good enough to bump one of those

I lasted half an episode of CSI Cyber. When they had the 3D hologram autopsy I kinda zoned out.

Have to admit Hawaii 5-0 is a guilty pleasure, and not sure why I still watch Castle (usually it just plays in the background while I do anything else)

They finished about a month ago. All episodes have aired in the US.
There was no cliff hanger as far as I remember.

I somehow missed the homage to The Abyss... or maybe I haven't watched it.
It's fantastic, if that really happened, since the actress playing the head of the division was in the film.
I may have to rewatch the most recent episode... (the one where the boss is detained, right?)

To be honest I quit after episode 2. Always had a soft spot for heroes and was a big chuck fan so really tried. I will still watch it at some point

Nope... this was last nights...
Where they create a special team (Headquaters!) in order to capture all 10 of the FBIs 10 Most Wanted.

In other news... The Bastard Executioner and Wicked City were canceled.
