OK, so I know I'm not the only one who thinks The Invisible Man kicks ass. I thought this show was silly when it first premiered, but it's blossomed into the ultimate buddy cop show. They do a decent job telling a Sci-Fi story and an incredible job making it enjoyable. I love this show and its seemingly endless wit. Tonight's episode was especially enjoyable. I nearly exploded when Fox started his trademark intro while telling the story to the shrink.

I also really enjoyed Farscape. I've never found this show to be the "best thing ever created by mankind" that it's been hyped as, but I love the characters and almost always enjoy the episodes. I surprised to see how well tonight's episode was done. When promoted as "written by Ben Browder" I was skeptical, but I think it was a great episode. I was pissed when these shows went to re-runs for most of the Spring, but I'm glad we have new episodes all summer long.

Time for The Outer Limits ... please stand by.

My TiVo picks up Invis Man every Friday evening, one of the few "must see" shows I think for weekend viewing.

I agree that the first two hours of Friday Prime are among the most fun TV hours in the week... I don't watch Outer Limits unless there's a guest star I can't miss--I find the stories kinda flat and predictable...

I've been a die-hard Farscape nut since ep1. I've had my ups and downs with Invisible Man, but I like it a lot these days...

Thank God ... I knew that show kicked ass. Farscape gets tons of press, but everyone seems to poop on The Invisible Man. I agree that The Outer Limits is stale and predictable. I wish it were better, because I like the anthology formula, but it's just not working for them anymore. Those first two hours, though, are some of the most fun I have watching TV all week.
