Life - 11/28/07

Nobody watching this? 23 posts on the inferior Bionic Woman, and nothing about Life?

This is one of the 3 or 4 most anticipated shows for me each week (along with Journeyman, Heroes, and...?).

Like last night's ep, but I still wish they'd spend slightly more time on the old murder mystery. We really don't know much about it or exactly why Crews was setup.

I refuse to say that I enjoy the show because that generally leads to a shows immediate cancellation.

Of all of the new shows this fall, I look forward to this one the most (along w/ 'Chuck').

I'm really enjoying the evolving relationship between Charlie and Danni.

I like this show too. It has interesting characters and a nice blend of turn your brain off procedural and serial drama.

One thing that got me a little on edge in this weeks episode was when the LT started talking about "them". Although it was only hinted I got the wiff of some grand Illuminati conspiracy, which is almost never a good thing (see Prison Break). Maybe I'm overreacting. I just hope they keep the conspiracy at least semi-plausible.

I figure it'll all lead back to the $18 million heist.

Both Life and Chuck have been picked up for a full season, so you don't have to worry for now (other than the WGA strike).

See, that's what you get when you slack off and don't do your duties! You should just be happy I got the date right...

You better get you DVR straightened out because there are 2 new episodes of Life next week, one on Monday at 10 p.m. EST and on Wednesday at 10 p.m. EST.

Another enjoyable episode. This show gets more interesting each week and I love Charlie's dialogue - some really good stuff. And Danni endeared herself to me when she proclaimed "I hate cats"...because I too hate cats

I'm showing those both set to record. Weird thing is I don't see this episode in the "deleted" section - which means the DVR didn't even "see" it (it would show if it didn't record it for whatever reason).

You're not with AT&T U-Verse are you?

Cause, it didn't record for me last night either, even though I checked 30 minutes before the recording time and it showed up as ready to record. I had to watch this episode online. Pissed me off!

Not as good as last week's episode, but still pretty darn good. I'm looking forward to this show more than any other now that The Office is gone. I love Crews zen talking in circles stuff.

I'm with Time/Warner - but we're both in SoCal, so maybe it was preempted for a StormWatch update.

Good episode this week. Both the conspiracy and the case plots were both interesting. It's nice to see that Dani is starting to open up to Crews.

Loved his reason why he likes fruits so much and his little talk to the kid at the end.

When the Tv season originally started, this was not one of the shows I was really interested in watching. However, my opinion has changed drastically now. This along with Pushing Daisies are probably the best new shows of this season. Chuck probably ranks third. This is probably the most original procedural drama I've seen in awhile. Every new episode doesn't feel repetitive at all and I love Charlie's dialogue.

This was a very good episode. I like how the mystery is playing out and I also like that Dani is beginning to trust and respect Charlie a little more. I'm very curious to see if Dani's father plays a bigger role in the mystery.

I wonder how many fans of this show have no clue about the 2-part episode next week beginning Monday.

I didn't know that they were airing two episodes this week until I read this thread.
