Outcasts

Postby Himachil » Mon Feb 28, 2011 12:33 pm

This has been on for a few weeks but I'm just getting round to watching a bit it. Still not entirely sure what to make of it - mainly due to it's stubborn refusal to tell you anything, but the last ep I watched was actually getting pretty decent. It's definitely got a hint of BSG about it - post catastrophe people living on the edge with lots of baggage, things they created not being too pleased and a character who is a bit Baltar.

And that, children, is how the little bunny rabbit got his fluffy white tail.

As a minimum, we must demand from SF that it be wiser than the world it speaks to.

Thanks for the tip. I am getting me the first 5 episodes from the web. My stupid tv provider doesn't have the BBC in its basic package. :evil:

I've heard some mixed reviews about it. Don't think its made it to the BBCA yet.
Something is about to happen, Hal. Something wonderful!
