How can you keep all the characters straight when they all talk & look like Crocodile Dundee?

And that's just the women! :: ducking and running ::

Well, to be fair...the most famous of all Aussie women, Elle MacPherson & Nicole Kidman, looking nothing like Paul Hogan or crocodiles. smiley

Being in South Africa for many years helps decipher the accent! Plus we lived down under for 4 years!  Grin

If u want a real challenge, watch Taggart (UK series based in Glasgow Scotland) - now there's an accent!  Wink

On some of the BBCA shows here they have English subs for the characters with heavy dialects.

i love it  Grin -- are there any other languages where you have to subtitle in the same language they are speaking because the accents are so thick?

Low German needs subtitles too for the others. But you rarely get to hear it these days, it's a dying language...

I have seen German subs for heavy swiss (Schwyzerd├╝├╝tsch) accents too.

First off, Firefly is always first, no exceptions.  smiley

As for non-canceled shows:

NCIS - Another nod for this one as it's already been mentioned.
Lie To Me - This one is turning out to be great.
White Collar - I have been enjoying this one as well.
Burn Notice - This one is just plain awesome!

I like the IT Crowd too, but it's a whole different genre/show from Lost or the above.

That show got screwed over so badly by the network that I didn't even know it existed until well after it was cancelled and SciFi (now SyFy) was showing it. That was a very well-written show that didn't get a fair chance to succeed.

We finally gave up & turned the subtitles on for "The Wire" - all that,mostly unintelligible, Baltimore argot meant that my partner was constantly asking me "what did they say?". Still one of our fave shows tho'.

To me it sounds more like somebody's trying to register a trade name and 'sci-fi' is already in the public domain. Grin

That and they no longer show really good sci-fi. They've gone to 'sci-fi lite'...ergo, SyFy. Wink

When they show sci-fi at all.  tongue

Last night SyFy channel was running an hour of "pro" wrestling on my DirectTV box.

Looking at the program schedule, it appears that ECW Smash-Ups is going to be a regular feature every Tuesday @ 10:00pm going forward. Oh well...at least it was a hour's respite from the rest of the day, which consisted of 11 hours worth of:Scare Tactics Repackaged; Scare Tactics Repackaged S1; Scare Tactics Season 3.5; and Scare Tactics Season 3.

(Though Battlestar Galactica is one of the best TV shows you will *ever* watch...even if you hated the original version or even if you hate science fiction.)

It wasn't bad even if I never became much of a fan. But IMHO anything would have been an improvement over the original series.

But for military-themed space opera, I'd still have to give the nod to Space: Above and Beyond. Clips are up on YouTube if anybody's interested.

Going forward? Where ya been? ECW has been in that time slot for the last two years. Sad, but true. Sad

That show was ahead of its time. It'd do a lot better today than it did at the time. That was another show Fox sabotaged by screwing around with its time slot.

Mostly not watching SyFy - for obvious reasons. Grin

If my GF wasn't a semi-fan of Warehouse 13, I doubt we'd be watching it at all.



Note: FWIW, WH13 is a "one-trick pony" show concept if there ever was one. But the cast is attractive and likable. And the interaction and dialog is witty, so it's enjoyable even if it's not very original or challenging. (I also must admit a certain ...um...liking for Joanne Kelly...for obvious reasons. mrgreen )

It *is* a one-trick pony. Everything about the show screams 'hokey' and 'lame'. However, once you sit down and start watching it the cast really makes the show work. And I have to give them kudos on their season finale. The last few minutes of that episode were just...."Whoa...".

Hmmmmmm, speaking of "one trick pony" shows... after the success of All In The Family and other spin-offs, Norman Lear tried gender reversal in All That Glitters.  In this show the women are the bosses and men are secretaries who are admired for their "pecs" and get their asses pinched by the arrogant women bosses.  It took me 1/2 hour to find it on google.  I couldn't remember the name.  The show was one joke. It was funny for the first episode.
