I don't actually remember which one's idea this was, but I'll start the topic again. I only know he/she is a fan of Star Trek and Buffy wink
So tell us about your favorite TV show. What are your favorite quotes, characters or episodes? Share anything you want to tell about it wink

Personally I'm a BIG fan of the X-Files.

Favorite quote:
Scully: "The answers are there, you just have to know where to look."
Mulder: "That's why they put the "I" in "FBI"."

Favorite keyplayers, except for Mulder/Scully: Cigarette Smoking Man (ofcourse smile ), X, the bounty hunter, the Well-Manicured Man, Alex Krycek.

Favorite episodes: every alien conspiracy episode (there are about 30 of them), "Home", "Tooms", "Tithonus",...

Ok now it's up to you :D

8D I'm outnumbered by X File fans! I originally started this topic.
My favourites are

  • Buffy
  • Angel
  • All Startrek incarnations
  • Alien Nation
  • The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy ( the radio version too)
  • Hercules the legendary journeys


Buffy
My favourite episodes are the one's with Anya featuring in them and the one's with Spike.

Hercules
My favourite episodes are the one's with Ares (the God of War) in them. Sadly the actor who played the part died in an accident. R.I.P.

I never got into the X Files ..I watched the first series but Gillian Anderson never seemed convincing in the part. Sorry X File Fans.

I really liked star trek TNG, also liked the first 5 seasons of buffy.

Futurama was the best ever cartoon show!! Too bad the greedy bastards at Fox killed the show.

In the lost Cartoon thread, Hubbs, Atheist and I agreed that Futurama was pure gold and that it shouldn't have been dropped. It makes you wonder who makes these decisions. sadblauw

Buffy is #1 in my books siiw

My sig is from buffy. I also like when Willow describes evil as tasting a bit chalky. The best episodes are the one where Xander confronts Percy and finds out he's gay, the one where buffy is poisoned and is in the asylum, and "Once More With Feeling." Fave characters are Willow(obviously, shes a red headed lesbian witch), Jonathon, and Warren, uh uh and Spike. Oh and Glorificus. She was awesome.

Yeah, Buffy’s pretty interesting until you notice that it’s targeted at young teens. smile

It’s good, but for a show packed with vampires and alleged evil, there isn’t a great deal of old-fashioned crimson fun. The characters don’t appear particularly concerned each time a league of undead monsters attacks their town, and maybe I’m missing the point, but shouldn’t demons have access to at least some powers that would enable them to induce a little fear in the common populace? Your average undead warrior takes a tad more than a punch in the face to slay, surely? wink5

I forgot to mention another brilliant TV show: "Millenium" from Chris Carter. There weren't thát many episodes but they were always raw, dark, ominous and apocalyptic like Hell. I can't remember any quotes (it's been a long time..) but the music was splendid (same ingredients as in X-Files: atmospheric, creepy and beautiful at the same time). Lance Henrikson was the perfect guy to play the dingy but gifted FBI agent Frank Black.

Young teens? Have you seen some of the later episodes? The Glorificus episodes had quite a bit of "old-fashioned crimson fun". Also there has been sexual moments in it ....surely not aimed at young teens. The reason it is so popular is that it is tongue in cheek and fun.

Buffy season 7 has just started on UK terrestial TV :D
I'm enjoying every minute of it...but at the back of my mind I know it's the last series sadblauw
I'll edit this post with more comments tomorrow. wiske

Episode 3 was good. The one that Willow returned, but she couldn't see the gang and they couldn't see her. Only Anya and Spike could see everyone. The funniest scene was when they were talking to someone new, and she found out that Xander had been with Anya and Anya had been with Spike and Spike had been with Buffy. She said had anyone not been together and Spike and Xander looked at each other!

A few quotes.
I laugh in the face of danger-then I hide until it goes away...Xander (Witch)

Honey, we have to talk about invitations. Do you want to be "William the Bloody" or just Spike (Something Blue)

Buffy is great.

Fav episode is the one at the end of series 3 (I think) where the mayor turns into a demon. Fav ever tv moment when suddenley all the students take off their gowns and have weapons underneath-very unexpected. great bit in that ep when Angel and some other guys run at the vampires and Weasley gets knocked over. And then when xander shouts hand to hand and all the students run at the vampires. All the while great music playing.

Many many other great eps. I'll think of some good quotes later.

I have had a two dreams recently where I could hear songs from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Buffy the Musical - Once More, With Feeling. This has prompted me to post my two favourite songs from this episode. On reflection, I thought they belonged here as opposed to the lyrics thread.

Going Through The Motions

Buffy
Every single night
The same arrangement
I go out and fight the fight
Still I always feel
This strange estrangement
Nothing here is real
Nothing here is right
I've been making shows of trading blows
Just hoping no one knows
That I've been
Going through the motions
Walking through the part
Nothing seems to penetrate my heart
I was always brave
And kind of righteous
Now I find I'm wavering
Crawl out of your grave
You find this fight just
Doesn't mean a thing

Vampire
She ain't got that swing
Buffy
Thanks for noticing

Demons and Vampires
She does pretty well with friends from hell
But lately we can tell
That she's just
Going through the motions
Faking it somehow
Demon
She's not even half the girl she...OW..
Buffy
Will I stay this way forever
Sleepwalk through my life's endeavor

Handsome Young Victim Man
How can I repay...

Buffy
..Whatever
I don't want to be
Going through the motions
Losing all my drive
I can't even see if this is really me
And I just want to be
Alive.


Rest in Peace sung by Spike (James Marsters)
I died
So many years ago
And you can make me feel
Like it isn't so
But why you come to be with me
I think I finally know
You're stared
Ashamed of what you feel
And you can't tell the ones you love
You know they couldn't deal
But whisper in a dead man's ear
That doesn't make it real
That's great
But I don't wanna play
'cause being near you touches me
More than I can say
And since I'm only dead to you
I'm saying stay away
And let me rest in peace.
Let me rest in peace
Let me get some sleep
Let me take my love and bury it
In a hole six foot deep
I can lay my body down
But I can't find my sweet release
So let me rest in peace.
You know
You've got a willing slave
And you just love to play the thought
That you might misbehave
But til you do I'm telling you
Stop visiting my grave
And let me rest in peace.
I know I should go
But I follow you like a man possessed
There's a traitor here beneath my breast
And it hurts me more than you're ever guessed
If my heart could beat it would break my chest
But I can see you're unimpressed
So leave me be and let me rest in peace.
Let me get some sleep Let me take my love and bury it
In a hole six foot deep
I can lay my body down
But I can't find my sweet release
So let me rest in peace
Why won't you
Let me rest in peace

Well, Buffy is pretty poor in my opinion (and it so completely is aimed at young teens). Dr. Who might be pretty cool if I ever watched that. They have some specially written animated episodes on the BBC website if anyone's interested, and there will be a full new series on TV in 2005. I'm a fan of weird british comedy shows. Like The Fast Show, and Little Britain (v. good). Also...

MONKEY DUST!

Monkey Dust is soooo cool.

#20:  Author: alex PostPosted: Tue 25 Nov, 2003

I like almost all sci-fi, but when it becomes weird like buffy did i don't like it as much and the fact that it is rarely shown on tv in Melbourne, even when it is it is at 11:30 or something, too late for me on school nights and for me it is not good enough to tape.

I also like all the star treks well those that i have seen (i have not seen the original series, but that one with deep space nine going back in time to them was good.)

I like futurama, simpsons, farscape, stargate, seven days (time travel series short lived), sliders, and many movies.

I also enjoy watching british comedy, i find that american comedy is getting a little too predictable like friends. Some US is ok, but some is just copying the same old story line, you know: problem, mess ups fixing problem, problem solved. Why can't there just be a program that doesn't solve the problem? This is just something i would like to see, i still like programs that follow the usual, but not as much as new, inventive shows.

BTW I don't know if someone has already mentioned this but Dr Who is showing everything (except maybe movies)on ABC tv in Aust. I watched the first few episodes and i found that they were a little slow moving and also a bit predictable. The set is ok for its day, but when there is a flame in the scene and it makes the film look as if it was burnt can't they do anything about it? You will know what i mean if you saw them. I plan to watch later series because my parents say it will get better. I do remember a movie that was good, so there is still hope. I wonder how people will react to these tv shows in another ~40 years.

#21:  Author: moogle PostPosted: Tue 25 Nov, 2003
    ----
ALEX At last we agree on something. The one thing you mentioned that I didn't really get into is farscape. I watched all the first series incase it improved but it never really caught on for me. Futurama and Simpsons are good aswell. BTW there is a cartoon thread lurking somewhere you may want to read that aswell. wiske

#22:  Author: alex PostPosted: Wed 26 Nov, 2003

Yes. I can understand how farscape does not appeal to everyone, but i like it. And i might read but not post in the cartoon thread, it's probably finished long ago.

The Holy Cartoon Trinity: The Simpsons, Futurama, and Family Guy.
How come no one has mentioned Family Guy?!?! I love that show! Plus, ITS COMING BACK! Jan. 2005 there gonna start realesing new Family Guys since its DVD did so well. 8D 8D 8D
Can't wait!

Buffy's okay I guess, and I'm gonna have to agree its aimed at younge teens. Still, no where near the Simps, Futurama, or Family Guy wink

#25:  Author: Tomas PostPosted: Wed 26 Nov, 2003

I concur. Very dark and surreal, yet with out saacrificing laughs, of which there were plenty. I loved the man wrongly convicted of murder who couldn't adjust to modern life. Doesn't sound funny, you had to see it, it was great.

At least the first series was. I haven't watched the second yet as I haven't got access to a TV at the moment. This has also prevented me from watching the last series of Buffy. I think people need to lighten up about that, the monsters are not meant to be realistic, it's meant to be funny, you get sharp dialogue and decent chaaracter development interspersed with laughable fight scenes for light relief, and its a winning formula.

Nobody has mentioned spaced yet so I shall do so...

No one's mentioned Frasier which was the spin off from Cheers. The Niles character was brilliant in it.

Buffy has now ended... I'll have to start replaying the series on the video recorder. I'm waiting patiently for the terrestial channel to continue the current Angel series....they left it half way through and are not showing it until April. cry

If I remember correctly, one of the episodes of Buffy involved lucid dreaming. Giles dreamt that he was in this graveyard/amusement park. He entered a crypt and found Spike, who seemed to be the owner of the park. Suddenly, Giles took up his watch and looked at it, looked away, and back again. He then said "I know what this is."

He did not get a chance to do much, though, as he was hit in the head by some astral plane demon or something shortly after. wink

You know, I only ever saw 10 minutes of Spaced. At the time I didn't get it, but I think if I saw it now I would enjoy it. I think it involved someone dreaming they had woken up, and then something happening in the dream (can't remember what) and then waking up for real, and the same thing actually happening in real life. Or something like that. I could well be thinking of a completely different programme.

Since I am on post 1999 ... it reminded me of the series space 1999 that I used to watch. (mm showing my age a little )

There was an alien female in it who could shape shift into any animal she chose... Which is also a lucid dreaming ability that can be developed. ^^
Gerry Anderson created it.

Quote:
In the year 1999, Moonbase Alpha, nestled in the Lunar crater Plato, is a scientific research colony and watchdog over silos of atomic waste from Earth stored on the Moon's far side. On September 13, 1999, magnetic energy builds to cause an explosive chain-reaction of the waste, blasting the Moon out of Earth orbit and off the plane of the ecliptic, out of the Solar System. The inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha are unable to return to Earth and must survive on their wandering Moon as it is displaced further into unknown space by freak space warps. Along the way, they are joined by an alien woman with the ability to change herself into any living creature at will.

My favorite show is The Twighlight Zone. I bought a compilation of the best episodes for about $70 a few months ago. If they bring out another volume of them, I will probably buy that also.

I have never been a fan of Star Trek or X Files. Don't know why.

As for Buffy and Angel. Can't stand that crap. Sorry for you die hard fans, but those shows are trash. Sorry to be so blunt. neutral

I really don't like any shows on television now. The only shows I watch are comedy shows and news. The comedy shows I watch now are Mr. Show, Upright Citizen's Brigade, Family Guy, Futurama, Simpsons, Arrested Development, and MadTV. If it was a few years ago SNL would be on that list, but I can't watch it any more. They lost all of the good cast members.

Yay! Me too! I first time saw it when i was 11 years old, so it certainly had an impact on me. Scary, surreal and genious.

Also i liked Babylon 5 many years ago. Though im no longer sure if id like it these days, so i dont want to take the glow out of it by trying it out again.

Robin of Sherwood (1984-1986)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086791/
Excellent serie. I saw it as a little kid and now that i saw it again, im just amazed how damn good it was. StargÅtes and such dont come even close in my books. Magick stuff is at least trying to be seemingly realistic. Like Robin in the Hood gets initiated by Druid living in forest for his job. There are christian leaders that do occult black magic in witch covenant. Hashishins (saracen merry man in picture) and Templar Knigts also appear. But most of all, it has great atmosphere, music and characters you really care for. Even the evil guys in this one are intresting and symphatetic.

+ TV movie Robin Hood and the Sorcerer (1983)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0086202/
This TV 'movie' was like longer pilot episode for the serie.


#44: The Simpsons, etc. Author: Cynster PostPosted: Mon 13 Dec, 2004
    ----
There is a Simpsons episode where Bart is dreaming about winning first prize for something and he wakes up and Lisa is saying "first prize, first prize, first prize", just messing with his mind while he dreams. That's a good one. ^^

There's another episode where Homer eats insanity peppers and trips out, which is more like a dream than a psychedlic trip if you ask me. Also a good one.

Other favorite shows of mine are (BBC) Absolutely Fabulous, The Young Ones, Coupling, The Office, and (USA) Family Guy, Futurama, That 70s Show, Buffy reruns (I never watched it when it was new for some reason, I love it now), Viva La Bam, South Park of course, and Starting Over.

#45:  Author: Paradox PostPosted: Mon 13 Dec, 2004

Whew, lots of these have already been listed, but I'll slap my list up here:

Farscape, Stargate (sg-1 & atlantis), Firefly, Jeremiah, Buffy, Smallville, Andromeda (before Michael Hewitt Wolfe left as lead writer), John Doe (was cancelled before the end of the first season, like Firefly...curses!), ALF, 7 Days, MacGuyver, and ummm, probably some more, but that's all I can think of off the top of my head for fav TV shows, or cult or whatever.

Red Dwarf HAHAHA! That show is gold. My friend's dad introduced me to that show(he is quite the nerd).

I'm supprised to see that so few people have mentioned Twin Peaks. In my opinion, Twin Peaks is the greatest TV show ever to be put on the air. It was pure beauty.(Right Illum?) So much more intelligent and thought out than most trash on TV now(OC, everything on UPN, Buffy, etc.).

really got into the old MTV animated series The Maxx, adapted from the comic book of the same name. with much of the action seguing between the main character, Julie's dreams and reality. (they suggest, at one point, that Julie created both the dream world and our reality out of her imagination.)

best of all, you can watch episodes on Youtube.

I also can't reccomend highly enough a great minwaper anime called Serial Experiments lain and another, which I have just started watching, Neon Genesis Evangelion.

as far as live action, can't say enough about the strange, scary little English fantasy series Sapphire & Steel. it takes a lot to frighten me, but Adventures 2 and 4 (the stories don't have names), managed to do it. much of the series really does have the atmosphere of a half-remembered dream.[/i]

I like lots of shows, Red Dwarf, Stargate, Buffy/Angel, Dead Like Me, Bones, Threshold, Startrek. There's a long list.

I JUST found this topic, and I just had to comment this reply! MacGyver grin, I've seen every episode like 5 times too! Oh, I was so obsessed with the show. I still get half-obsessed every time I see it on. If I watch one episode, I have to see another 20 after it!

And then came Stargate grin but then they stopped airing it here in Sweden... sadblauw

Long time since I posted in here. I have some newer shows I enjoy now.

Being Human [uk]
Vampire, ghost and werewolf sharing a house. It even managed to change the 3 main characters over time and keep good.

Once Upon a Time. The characters from fairy tales transported to Storybrook. Lots of flashback stories. Heroes, Villians and those between the two poles.

Grimm. Wessen - werewolves etc in Portland.

Izombie. ME who is a zombie. Solves cases by eating the victim's brain...

I've seen a few seasons of Once Upon a Time. It has some good parts.

I would like to add the new tv-show Legion to the list. Only 8 episode season 1, but cinematography, special effects and all is great. It tells a story of a man with schizophrenia trying to figure out what, and who, is real in his life. The twist is, he's an omega level mutant in the Marvel universe. Each personality has a power. The show conveys well the main character's struggle and is very dreamlike.

Legion sounds good Letaali. I'll have to look out for it.

Oh,anyone seen Trollhunters? It's an animated series. Quite good story arc.

My favorite TV show would have to be the X Files. I haven't watched it in a while, it might be time for some binge watching. smile

I also love Supernatural. I think it should have ended with Season 5, and I hate Seasons 6 and 7, but it picks up after that. I dislike the way they portrayed God/angels/demons, but the relationship between Sam and Dean (and Cass, and Crowley) keeps things entertaining.

I loved the first season of The Flash, but the second and third seasons feel too formulaic and overly dramatic, not to mention all the forced conflicts and telenovela romance. Frankly, I keep watching it only for the characters of Harrison Wells and Cisco.

To a lesser degree, I liked Legends of Tomorrow, but after the first season, their scripts got so full of plot holes, inconsistencies, and plain stupidities, that I just couldn't continue watching it.

I love, love, LOVE! The Magicians. The show is so over the top (which I know a lot of people don't like), but it's just too funny and deliciously shocking.

I also love Lucifer. I know it got a bit cheesy, but I'm too fond of the main characters to let it go. smile

I liked the first season of The 100, but it lost my interest after that.

The first season of Penny Dreadful was excellent, but, again, Season 2 was a bit of a letdown, and I haven't finished Season 3.

I watched a few episodes of Jessica Jones, and I love the overall style of the show and the main actress -- will continue to watch this one.

Heroes was a very good TV show in Season 1, and I guess it should have ended there. I don't dislike the rest of the show like a lot of people do, but I can understand why they do.

The first season of Mr. Robot was also very good in my opinion, but I dropped it mid-season 2.

I watched only the first episodes of Preacher, Legion and Daredevil and I didn't really like them that much (I'd watch more Legion; Daredevil was absolutely beautiful but so boring; I don't really remember Preacher except for some gore).

I love Supernatural and agree it should have ended with season 5. I also watch the Flash and the first season was great, been downhill after that. I have to check out The Magicians. I watched Jessica Jones and liked it. I love all of Heroes, even if the later seasons have some flaws. I've rewatched all the seasons of Heroes at least three times.

I'm disappointed with the current series of Dr Who (2017 Series 10 / Season 36 / Capaldi)
Trouble with having multiple writers, ie different writer for episodes, is that every episode is only as good as the writer/idea behind the episode. I also feel they haven't utilised Peter Capaldi's acting ability and thus he has ended up with a 2 dimensional character.

The best episode was Smile by Frank Cottrell-Boyce. But although good it felt like a reimagining of something I had seen before.

So crossing my fingers for the next series - new regeneration ( sadblauw ) and new hand at the wheel - Moffat is leaving the show.

I watch very much series ehehe, here some of the best with explaination:

Teen wolf, a series about teenager becoming werewolves, en also fox-shifters, some kind of witches etc. I really liked a part in season 3 where one of the main characters,
Stiles, gets confused and tries to see if everything is a dream by using RC's.

The Vampire Diaries, you maybe think like; thats such a basic series, and the love stories are boring etc. But i really like the different creature in them like werewolves, vampires, witches, heretics, sirens etc.

Reign, its about the history of Scotland and France, about kings and plots. It has many interesting storylines and i dont really liked this genre at first but its quite interesting.

The Originals, spin of from The vampire diaries, takes place in new orleans and is most of the time about the Mikaelsons, the first ever original vampires. Also there are many witches and coffins, making it interesting. Altough i dont really like season 4 as much as the previous ones.

I also like Once Upon a Time (someone already said something about that hehe) And ive watched some parts of the 100 and Grimm, witch i like to continue after i finish other series. I also want to start watching Dr. Who and Lost, but thats to much for all at once. As you see im into the supernatural genre hehe

^Nice!

Currently watching The Originals, Teen Wolf(season 3), Attack on Titan and finishing Tokyo Ghoul. Dragon Ball Super and Boruto, I stay up to date via youtube reviews and watch the episodes that pique my interest to avoid fillers or mundane episodes.

Finished Vampire Diaries, I was very skeptical of it at first glance but it turned out to be really good. Over time I became more fond of The Originals because it had a more mature and intense tone overall.

Supernatural, I liked the series so much I got the book which takes place between the seasons 5 finale and season 6 premiere. I binge watched it up to season 10 then fell off sometime during the middle of season and just had it on in the background while gaming or doing homework (couldn't have grown out of it). Definitely picking this series back up again.

Archer Hahaha because why not? I binge watched the show until I realized that it would be a while before the next season hit Netflix, so I decided to hold out. May as well continue this since they removed Danger 5 for some odd reason.

Danger 5 Hahaha words can't express how strange and original this show is. Its dated effects, indie-ensue vibe, and subtle humor. So you have 5 agents, who take orders from a bald eagle, trying to stop Hitler -who tends to escape in the same generic fashion- from achieving world domination....Yeah you would have to see it for yourself....If only Netflix didn't remove it . neutral

Hunter x Hunter When I first tried it I couldn't get through the first episode. Gave it a second try years later and found one of my all time favorite anime despite the frequent hiatuses. If I recall correctly the manga will return from hiatus this summer.

Game of Thrones Think I left off around season 3. It hasn't captured my attention like the shows mentioned above or Spartacus, but it is entertaining to see Tyrion exercise his quick wit to compensate for his combat ability.

The Flash I found pretty amusing, but ran into some spoilers and fell off at the end of season 1...I'll get back around to it someday.

I started watching Stranger Things. What a lovely show!

Btw, Koharo, you won't miss much if you don't return to The Flash at all. The second season is okay I suppose, but the rest... I am now very much annoyed with that show. grrr

It's great! ^-^

And if we are including anime here, like Koharo did, I'll also add Hunter x Hunter on the list. It's great.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann is another great one. It has mechas and crazy huge fights. The last five or so episodes were pure gold in my eyes. Not for everyone though.

Space Dandy is another great one, if you like crazy space adventures. Some episodes are really artistic. Visually amazing and fun. First couple of episodes don't tell the whole story. I also liked the english dub more that the original voices for this series.

My brother watched that, may have to check it out I keep hearing good things about it. Aw that sucks to hear regarding The Flash though, thought it would keep getting better with the other flashes and travelling to parallel dimensions.

Tried Gurren Lagann, but fell off. I'll at least watch the last 5 eps.

Aw Space Dandy was pretty funny, especially the other dimensional Dandies. Michael Jackson Dandy was priceless.

More recently started watching Ink Master again. Its a reality show where tattoo artists from across the country compete for the title of Ink Master and a cash prize through various challenges. Its cool to see how they execute some of these ideas. Its also funny how petty some of the competitors can be and how brazen the judges can be sometimes.

Also forgot to put The Walking Dead. Despite the very slow pace of the latest season I managed to enjoy it...Well the plot twists, Eugene, Negan of course, King Ezekiel & Shiva (Ezekiel's Tiger), and the finale. Heh cant wait for the next season.

Currently considering Fear of The Walking Dead and Shadow Hunters

The Magicians is easily my current favorite show. I'm not really sure how to define it, but that must be because I haven't had so much fun watching something in a long, long time. The show's just so alluring. It really dwells on the outskirts of the shock cinema circle, but offers just enough gore and sadism to make it watchable. It has it's flaws, but that doesn't stop me from watching it. I like sarcasm in characters and I like when the magic is refereed to as something highly destructive, yet altogether maintainable.
The Gnosticism is strong here. Really strong.
Who knew that High Fantasy can be so gritty at the same time? Feels like a real European fairytale... It's die Brüder Grimm in modern times...
I'm reluctant to watch it before all episodes air because I consume them so fast...

Magic is Real

Scenery is what keeps making this show so fantastic. Great shots and camera work. Almost reminds me of the film Phantom Thread. Yes, watch that movie. siiw Thank me later. siiw

Hahaha the timing, just got around to it about to finish season 2. Not sure how to describe the show. Edgy Hogwarts? Definitely a new favorite. Alice, Elliot, Kady, and Penny are pretty awesome (and Jules without her shade). Margot has been growing on me and Q has been a bit annoying at times, but regardless I'm eager to see the development he will undergo throughout the series. Not gonna lie could relate to Q in the very beginning (first 1-2 eps which got me hooked).

Yeah pretty alluring.

EDIT:
On season 3 now, starting to notice a little character development with Q. His character is starting to grow on me.

Actually, the name is Quentin, however his friends call him Q(u). Fitting of your pseudonym.

On a side note, I can't believe I have to wait up until January to get new episodes. It's highly disturbing.

Michael: Hi, Eleanor. I'm Michael. How are you today?
Eleanor: I'm great. Thanks for asking. Oh, one question. Where am I? Who are you? And what's going on?
Michael: Right, so, you, Eleanor Shellstrop, are dead. Your life on Earth has ended, and you are now in the next phase of your existence in the universe.
Eleanor: Cool.

Can't say much due to spoilers! But recommend it to everyone. It's great ... even contains some philosophy.

Season 3 will be available soon, but don't watch it out of order. ^^
