Well, that Morena Baccarin can slither around me anytime.  :rolleyes:

Seconded. But she was even more attractive in "Firefly".

I think it's just that yucky grey busniness suit she's wearing  :thrbarf:

I was surprised to see that this show has TWO fireflies, Inara and Wash.

...and yeah, I did notice the seeming swipe at Obamao's utopian claims.
Can't wait to see how this plays out.


Such as Anna's demand (no other word for it) not to ask any questions that would put the Visitors in a negative light, and then her proclamation on the air that she will answer questions freely and without reservation.

And then her flunky's "reassurance" that compromising one's principles for the Common Good is not a shameful act, but rather a noble one.  These Visitors are so oily they could put OPEC out of business.

For me, it's mostly the short hair. Amara's hair was nice. She wore sexy clothes, too, so yeah, the business suit doesn't highlight her, uh, attributes as well.

Just saw the first episode on Hulu. Looking forward to seeing where they take it.

This new series is okay but seems to grow boring at parts. Some good use of tactics but overall where will the humans go. They can't really hide so it brings in a more hardened struggle to survive in a situation that can't be easily analyzed. Much in this show has to be explained so that takes up most of the show. Suspense sux, no real builder. LOLZ rating:about two tacos and maybe through in a gordita.

I, for one, like the new series.  The writers are apparently doing a slap in the face to the Obama-Yo-Mama administration, and so far they are responding like Hench-Rat (from the Earthworm Jim cartoon series, cheerfully replying, "Ouch! Thank you!"

There is suspense, grievous loss, and political and personal intrigue.  I look forward to seeing where it goes, wondering what will happen before the invasion force arrives.

Sometimes I'm into it, other times I'm bored. And I'm way too much of a realist to believe that there would actually be a show on TV that blantantly patronizes BHO.

It's the hair.  She looks much better with long hair.  Given a choice between Anna and Lisa (played by Laura Vandervoort, though, I'd pick Lisa in a heartbeat.
