*shakes fist at network programmers*

Okay, so you know how I made this list?

Well, all these shows premiering before premiere week from hell (May 19-24) are making me curious! So now I've downloaded:

Hellcats
Terriers
Nikita

Though I've only watched 10 min. of Terriers so far, which I liked, but it was getting late when I started it.

How many more shows will I add? :O I really shouldn't be adding to an already overloaded list, but I am so distracted by shiny new shows...

That's the way things go, sweetheart. NPs focus so much on their more popular shows that others get lost in the shuffle. I know that I'll be downloading a LOT this year because of scheduling conflicts. I just learn to roll with it.

Oh, so true, but it's like... I'm only considering these since they are being aired at a time I don't have any conflicts yet. It's a conspiracy against my free time! :O

You know, one thing living overseas has already taught me...I CAN actually live without tv LOl. I don't have any idea what shows are premiering when and the thought of trying to *cough* acquire all the shows I want to watch..just makes me want to wait until they are out on DVD. I can think of three right off the top of my head that I will probably make a concerted effort to *cough* acquire, but other than that...I'll probably wait for dVD.

LOL, it must be the difference between us, because one of the years I lived in Japan, I watched 20 shows! (I had just discovered torrents, hah). I don't think it would stop me now either!

Oh, wow. I watched Hellcats and Nikita last night. I've already decided I'll try watching those shows. I was even having crack fantasies of Community's Britta as a spy a la Nikita. It could happen! In the one episode, she did say she had some anarchist days. What if something from her dark past came back... dun dun dun!

I'd totally read a Britta is Nikita fic, and I haven't even watched it yet! ♥

*LOL* Adds to my list too!! I haven't seen anything about 'Terriers'!! It's not about dogs right?! *lol*

I really liked Hellcats!

And Nikita is on my DVR for viewing this weekend!

*junkies need their fix right?*

Having only watched 10 minutes, I don't even know why it's called Terriers! There's a dog in the first part, but I don't think/know if he's a regular. What got me interested is critical praise and the guy who played Rene in True Blood being one of the leads!

I AM SUCH A JUNKIE.

It is getting good reviews, and yes, I thought that was Rene!

I hope it's not on Showtime or Starz! Goes to find out where it is!!:D:D

Try Shattered! It's a Canadian show, so you can download it.

I always watch lots of new shows when the season starts then get too bored/busy to continue watching and lighten the load to essentials. It's a bad habit when those new shows get better over time (ie Vampire Diaries, Cougartown)

I'll probably do the same, try them all then come back in the summer to marathon the ones that didn't stick first time out. ♥

Stan Lee's HeromanMay I interject and suggest Stan Lee's "Heroman" (ヒーローマン) anime show? It's a collaboration between Stan's POW!Entertainment, Womax and Studio BONES to create an original anime featuring American comic book action - plotted by the father of Marvel Comics himself.

My synopsis of the plot? This is what would have happened if instead of being bitten by a radioactive spider, Peter Parker got the controls to a super-powered not-so-giant mecha...

The show makes for entertaining viewing and is full of Stan Lee tropes (Joey Jones, anyone?). You can watch it legally subbed on Crunchyroll.com, with episode one available here. It's 24 episodes into its 26 episode run (which I hope gets renewed for another season).

Some reasons for you to consider picking this up on your viewing schedule:
  • Canon Shipping Couple
  • Secret Identity Pr0n
  • Stan Lee cameo
  • Secret Identity Pr0n
  • Marvel Comics and Spider-Man shout outs
  • Secret Identity Pr0n
  • Setting is mostly in California
  • Secret Identity Pr0n
  • Comic book action goodness
  • Secret Identity Pr0n
  • Amazing animation
  • Did I mention the Secret ID Pr0n?
So yeah, here's some clips (the second one is flipped left-right in order to avoid YouTube's copyright policy).

Does someone know my one Achilles heel? :DDDD

Yeah, okay, I'll give it a try. Do you know if subbed avis are out there? And what the rating is (can I watch with Ashlyn?)

Downloadable avi or mkv files exist from the usual fansubbing suspects, though streaming from Crunchyroll is free.

There are some scenes of violence and horror (due to the alien invasion involved in the plot) of the series. A couple of these could be frightening to some youngsters, but the show is aimed in general at the 10-15 crowd. I wouldn't imagine there'd be too much cause for concern with Ashlyn watching, but you might want to check the content first if you're at all concerned.
That said, Stan Lee is working on getting the show broadcast dubbed into English in the US in the next year or so. No details yet, but I do hope he gets to voice himself.
Hey, kids! It's Stan Lee!

I haven't gone looking for fansubbing sites in ages (2003-ish?)... have any recs?

She watches Ranma 1/2 and loves it, so probably it's okay.

OK, if Ranma 1/2 is fine, then Heroman DEFINITELY is. Sites to check are mostly torrent sites: AnimeSuki.com, TokyoTosho.info and company are all the best places to find them.

You can also check subbers for their releases directly. At the moment, "Commie Subs" produce the best subs for the show, but have stalled at episode 12. The next best English subbing team, "Darksoul-subs" is up to episode 23 at time of writing.

Hope that helps.
