Just watched all 3

Lucifer I liked the best but I think that's because it's my style of humour. Blindspot has the most potential and minority report is the one I least liked as the plot is held up only by the special effects

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other Snippets

I have watched Blindspot & Lucifer so far.

Blindspot looked quite interesting though I wonder how irritated I might become if they drag the mystery on and on (and surely there is a limit to the number of clues on her body as well, which could be somewhat limiting).

Lucifer I loved, I'm definitely looking forward to seeing that, roll on 2016.

I still have Minority Report to watch, that sounded like the one I would be least interested in.

I decided to pull down the Supergirl pilot as well, and watch that, its had poor reviews so far ...

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other Snippets

Sky Living have picked up Blindspot for the UK.

NBC has also ordered nine more scripts for the show, making it likely they will subsequently order the nine extra eps - to turn it into a full 22 episode season.

Netflix's Jessica Jones which is out on the 20th November looks interesting

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other Snippets

Jessica Jones is quite good, not relying on a lot of special effects with a good story behind it. Currently just watched ep3

Any views on SyFys The expanse ?

Re: Science Fiction, Fantasy, and other Snippets

I really enjoyed the Expanse, and it appears to be keeping to the books (read the first four, got the fifth still to read).

---------- Post added at 11:17 ---------- Previous post was at 11:17 ----------

Can I also recommend Man in the High Castle, and episode 1 of Into the Badlands.

I am up to Episode 8 of Jessica Jones. Its starting to get really really good.

Although Tennent doing his 10th Doctor accent it a bit jarring. Everytime he speaks I just think its a slightly evil 10th Doctor lol. He should really have gone with a different accent.
