I'm watching S2E1 now.  I think I need to go back and watch the last episode of S1, I've forgotten too much.  "This is some bullshit!"   :laugh:

We tried to watch it again when the 2nd half of season 2 started up a couple weeks ago.  We got bored and turned it off again.

I'm warming up to it. Really liked the second episode of the second half of the season.

I can't watch the first season again unless I signup for a subscription service to Peacock.  (I have Peacock, but just the free version)  So I read the S1 episode synopses online and continued watching S2 on syfy.  The 3rd episode, I think it was called "Girls' Night" was pretty bad.  If I had started with that episode I think I would have just turned it off and found something else to watch.  The first 2 episodes were pretty good and hopefully S2E3 was just a one-off wokefest and they got it out of their system and can get back to the story.

I am running a week behind and so far with season 2 I am .... meh...., so far I am not impressed and even less so after watching the episode from last week. I only watch it at this point because I still have hopes it will kind of go back to its roots from season 1 but it seems it is destined to careen off on a new, touchy-feely direction. I don't know if they are trying to pull in a different demographic (women in particular) or not.With season 1 I would watch it within a day or so, this season if I even remember it is recorded I will eventually get to it.

Time to bring it back to the top so those who want to binge watch the first two seasons before season 3 will have close to a week to do it. Season 3 starts Feb 14 on SyFy and Peacock streaming.

Two episodes into the season and so far so good!

I'm really liking it so far.

Considering how Season 2 ended, I really was expecting more exposition of what was going on in the secret underground facility Linda Hamilton's character took our RA into last year. About all I got was that our RA didn't like the way Linda's people were shuffling papers.

Give it time.

Crap! I wanted to go back and watch a couple of episodes from seasons 1 and 2 because I enjoyed them.

I though the entire series was streaming on Hulu.

Nope.

Peacock.

Gotta think about this.

It appears the older seasons are on Netflix now as well.

I haven't watched the new season yet. I've got the episodes recording and will probably start watching in a couple of weeks.

I almost dropped a hysterically funny spoiler from the second episode.

I just about fell off my sofa I was laughing so hard.

Hmmm...  I'm not enjoying it as much as everyone else seems to be.  Bought eight episodes on Amazon for ten ducats.  Watched two so far.  Mildly amusing in places.  The first season was hilarious, the second was quite funny.  This third season is just meh so far to me.  The alien fish out of water schtick isn't holding up, instead getting a little old.
On that note, word is that SyFy is not going to renew for a fourth season.  It may go to USA Network or possibly Netflix.  If it does move, it's budget is likely to be cut by $500,000 per episode.
If there really was intelligent life on other planets, we'd be sending them foreign aid.

Yeah, season 3 wasn't nearly as funny as 1, or 2, but it still had some really great moments.

Just watched S3E3.  Much better.  Actually enjoyed it.

I gave up on it several episodes back. Just TOO much "woke/gay/bi" and outright silly for me. I TRIED to hang with it but the last episode I watched pushed me over the edge and I was out.

Yea
I've known a lot of nurses who exude a hard-bitten outer shell but are far from that inside. My Mother was an OR nurse and had a very hard outer shell, but she could be extremely sensitive. The surest way to get Mom to open up? Dogs.

Thankfully I have never been accused of being sensitive, usually the opposite. 21 years in the military and 20 years as a Trauma ER/ICU Nurse and my light of sensitivity was extinguished.  =(

ETA: I also wasn't that fond of Season 3 for some reason. A few good parts, a lot of not so good parts.
