Voyager has some good episodes (and some BAD ones - Threshold for one), but is worth watching.  DS9 isn't the greatest in the first few seasons, but it has some really great ones there.  Duet is one, I think season 2, the one with Gul Dar'heel / Amin Maritza.  But by the later seasons it becomes consistently great pretty much every episode.  Just like TNG comes into itsown when Riker grows the beard, DS9 becomes better when Sisko goes fully bald with a beard :lol:

There was something about the minor characters on that show. All had stories that seemed perfectly interwoven.

MASN is showing Strasburg's first game right now.  It is very different listening to Rob Dibble than FP.  Every other word describing Strasburg is "kid".

They were all good but I'm partial to Garak.  Or maybe Martok.

Honestly I thought everything after season 1 was solid to good.  Season 2 had plenty of strong episodes, and S3 onward started ramping up the Dominion arc.  It was just S1 that had some truly cringe-worthy episodes (Move Along Home, If Wishes Were Horses) and some really dull ones (Progress).  But even S1 had some gems as well (Duet is actually late S1)

The first 15 minutes of tonight's SyFy channel premiere of Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! takes place in Washington DC. I only saw a few minutes of it before the opening credits. It was spectacular and hilarious.

They've added actors and actresses who've largely been out of work, including Frankie Muniz, Bo Derek, David Hasselhoff, plus Penn & Teller and the Today Show Asshosts.... The DC location opening will be rerun tonight from 11:05 pm to 11:20 pm.

Am kind of enjoying Killjoys so far. Best way to describe my first take (from the first two episodes): Take the firefly setting (minus the cowboy thing) and make the main characters bounty hunters tracking down people the Company wants dealt with.

Add in a talking, intelligent ship a mysterious assassin upbringing for one of the chars and somewhat over the top sci-fi action and it's a good time. Don't expect deep plots and you shouldn't be disappointed.

Since there's no game tonight, 2IPAs decided to try the 1st & 2nd episodes of "Orange Is The New Black".  Very interesting ...

CBS's Person of Interest reruns are now being shown on cable TV's WGN. Pilot episode Tues Sept 1, 2015 at 7 pm, followed by the next two one-hour episodes. Then Wed 10 pm until 1 am.

Former CIA agent Reese (Jim Caviezel) -- now presumed dead -- and billionaire software genius Finch (Michael Emerson) join forces as a vigilante crime-fighting team. Using Finch's program, which employs pattern recognition to determine individuals who will soon be involved in violent crimes, they combine Reese's covert-operations training and Finch's money and cyberskills to stop crimes before they happen.

Why do I have to wait months for a new season of Mr. Robot?!?

It's the best show on TV right now. Check it out... just had the season finale tonight.

More guests mean a different structure, as well as it's not the Comedy Channel

I tuned in last night to see what there was to see.    I've determined that I'm not the demographic he's seeking.    :)    The set, the monologue, camera angle from just above Colbert's head in the opening    ....   what's up with the guy playing a recorder?    He may be the crapz but I'm not into hipster bands.    I'll go back to Fallon tonight.

I'll stick with Kimmel; Corden is the best of the current crop, but I don't stay up that late

Uh, so I'm watching The Voice for the first time ever. I've got a friend who's going to be on it, not sure which night. I'm as nervous as I was during the playoffs...

Hasn't been on yet. She hasn't been on any of the teasers yet, I'm thinking she'll be on tomorrow's episode.

Ah ok, a few years ago my sisters best friends daughter was on Idol, she made it through Hollywood week and we were all so excited and then the show was all "oh whoops we have one too many" and poor 15 year old Gabi was told she'd be the last one cut, broke my heart watching her cry on tv all because the show needed some drama so I've never watched that awful show since-that said keep us posted how your friend does!
