Anyone watching this? I've seen the opening two episodes. It's a bit of a strange one. Kind of a cross between Battlestar Galactica and oyaager so far. Needs to find its own identity pretty fast. Characters a bit slow to emerge and the pace over all is a little pedestrian. Still, it is early days. And anytihng with Robert Carlyle ALWAYS has redeeming qualities.

*Revives thread*

I have to say I love this show, don't miss and episode Smile so sad to know it's been cancelled after the second series though. I'm hoping they change their mind after they see how good this series has got Smile

gaah! You mean another show where we don't get closure?
My wife and I are still chafing at the bit about the abrupt axing of "Reaper" after a rather odd series finale that build up a story for the next series!

I'm with you, Shriker. After a slow start it has become compelling viewing. Real science as wedll as great characters and an increasingly confident script. To cancel is a crime...
