    I think the second series of ST was better than I thought at first, I think I was a little cranky as I had the flu when I watched it.:blush:

    Someone sent me this.:p

    I watched 4-5 episodes with my daughter before she got impatient with my strategy of watching an episode every day or two and just started watching them on her own. She's on Season 2 now. I'm going to wait for her to finish and they see if she wants to carry on season 1 with me. I'll watch it if it's something we can watch together, otherwise I'm not bothered.

    I thought the first episode was the best, and the rest were fairly average. Some of the human relationship drama is good, but the sci-fi/horror aspect of it is spectacularly unoriginal, basically a large amount of copying ET plus some copying of other bits and pieces, plus some random wierdness. I think it's better for people in the age range 10-20 because they won't even realize that is just a mish-mash of other things that were done better decades ago, and therefore will enjoy it more.

    Maybe I'm judging a bit early, but things tend to either get worse or stay the same rather than get better.

    I'm still struggling for a really good Netflix series at the moment. I tend to read books and just turn on the Netflix when I get too tired for reading.

    Just watched season one (again) all the way through on DVD rentals (after already re-watching the first few episodes on Netflix quite a while back).... Yeah, Dustin's still my favorite character. A close second is definitely Hopper. Those are my top two faves for sure.

    I just watched the last episode of season 2 with my daughter. She will be pleased to hear that season 3 is official. She's just gone to bed so missed the news! Not a huge surprise, especially after the last shot of season 2 and so many half developed story lines in season 2 that looked deliberately unfinished.
