I caught the movies when they were on a few years ago and really enjoyed them. They are b-grade cheesy adventures stuff, but they don't pretend to be.
Hopefully the tv show keeps the same tone.
New show on TNT, first 2 episodes aired already.
It reminds me a lot of Warehouse 13 but magic instead of gimmicky. Seems like it will have more of an overall story than just your artifact of the week.
Wasn't anything extraordinary, but I think I'll keep an eye on it. I guess it follows up on some made for TV movies?
watching the premiere tonite on on demand.
as for the movies.
Castle's female lead- Stana Katic - plays the female vampire in the umm 2nd? one(curse of the judas chalice)
I enjoyed the shows premiere. It was exactly what I would expect from the series and should be a fun show to watch.
It was entertaining but it felt very cheap.
Like I was watching Warehouse 13, but with magic, and made in the fucking 90s.
Yes, that's it, it reminds me of TV shows from the 90s, that's exactly it.
Yeah, Xena or Hercules. With a cut rate Dr. Who.
At one point at the party thing they randomly cut away to show Mystique beating up 2 random henchmen in a stairwell, then back away from it. Nothing leading up to the fight or coming out of it. Just something they shot and felt they had to use.
And at one point the helicopter was clearly an RC toy=P
I could be wrong on both though, I had a pretty good buzz going.
It seemed very in line with the made for TV movies.
Warehouse 13 meets Leverage meets Dr. Who meets X-Files meets I don't know what else but the kids are enjoying watching it with us.
oderint dum metuant
Holy hell I just caught a couple minutes of this shit show. So bad I didnt know if I should turn the channel of not
Yeah, this show is terrible, but sort of fun all the same, and there isn't a lot else on right now. It sort of saddens me that you have a show with Rebecca Romjin and she's not the best looking girl on it. Makes me feel old
It's like they go out of their way to make her look bad.
Caught the first two episodes of this. It a not high drama or an amazing novel in television form, but it was at least entertaining and nice fluff. Sometimes you just wanna chill with B-grade fluff.
Same, they had the beginning special and 2nd episode airing back to back while I was in a hotel in Seattle. I enjoyed them, as it really felt like Warehouse 13 meets Leverage, which I both enjoyed. Didn't even know there were tv movies with Noah Wiley's character from before, need to check those out.
At first, I thought the reason it reminded me of Leverage was simply because the same actor is in it, but it's produced by the same guy and has a very similar style to how it's shot. Plus, the entourage of different personalities with different skills also resonates on that level.
Eve's random Disney princess outbursts has to be one of the funniest things they've done so far. I also really liked how they didn't go the obvious route and made Cassie be Prince Charming. I spent most of the episode trying to figure out which fairy tale character she was supposed to be because of that. I think this episode proved that the more they embrace their campiness, the more enjoyable the show becomes.
Watched the season wrap up of this. Wasn't the worst first season of something. The "big reveals" were kind of blah. They obviously showed some episodes out of order. Like the house episode where no one trusted Red. Like that should be like episode 3....
Over all it was campy fun but not amazing. I'll watch season 2 if it happens. Though they better stop working at making Romjin look bad. Just let her be sexy, it won't destroy your show.
It annoys me that this isn't on Hulu plus. I don't have a cable subscription that includes this shitty channel. From what I read here it isn't worth going through the effort of downloading it.
Are you suggesting that it might take McCheese 10 minutes instead of 10 seconds because he's simultaneously making an entire box of pizza rolls?
It is also shot in the same place as Leverage was and has a lot of the same crew. I used to work on Leverage, but never really watched it. Christian Kane is a goofball and used to drive the same car as his character on Leverage. Hopefully now him and "Jake Stone" have the same ride.
I watched the first movie when I heard they were going to be making the show and thought it wasn't great, but also not boring, which I think is where this show will end up. Dissapointed Noah Wyle isn't in it though, I always liked him on ER and thought he was one of the only decent things about Falling Skies.
That's cool you worked on Leverage. I enjoyed that show. Noah is in like 1/3rd of the episodes. He is a major character in the season finale and the first episode or two.
Anyone else catch this week's episode? Holy shit, was it amazing.
Yea, I like this show a lot. Surprised there hasnt been any activity in this thread. It's not some masterpiece like Breaking Bad or whatever, but I still look forward to watching these. Same way I felt about Warehouse 13 and Eureka, basically.

I watched the 1st two or three episodes of Season 1 of this a few nights ago when I couldn't sleep. Sounds like it is worth sticking with though? It gave off a good Warehouse 13, Eureka, whatever SciFi show vibe which I liked mixed in with some National Treasure... actually these comparisons may be going downhill. Anyways, it seemed good might try to catch up tonight when again I can't sleep.

Oh and sorta fuck Tuco too.
its also been renewed for next season
So, just found out the actress who plays Cassandra is 36. She's looking damn good for mid 30s. They need to keep putting her in skimpy skirts and short shorts.. mmm hmmm.
So, on the last episode.. did it literally end with him saying 'depends how you feel about the end of the world?' with the leylines in the air?
I ask because my DVR only recorded first half. Then, when I found it online it cut out right there, but the episode length seemed short by a few minutes, and that was an abrupt ending. Wondering if I missed something.
