Still waiting for them to screen the second half of the second season, or something like that. They stopped here to the episode where Jessi (my favourite character in the series 8)) jumped off the cliff.

Just downloaded episode 22 today. Might watch it shortly.

And that's all I have to say about that...

Spoilers (Seasons 2.5+):













It really does surprise me how strong the dichotomy is between Kyle the healer and Jessi the warrior (I'm serious, it's like their individual powers are geared this way, Jessi is all about telekinesis and strength and speed while the only power Kyle's been using is healing. Then again, it does reflect their personalities. Jessi can't resist not becoming stronger, and Kyle can't bear not helping others. I wonder what it would be like if he actually used his "force powers" more often.)

It's interesting to see an esoteric perspective on the show. Looking at it from that angle, it does seem to fit quite well, to the point that I'm inclined to believe it's an intentional aspect of the storyline.

Watching this weeks episode momentarily.

Alas. Though the plot feels like it's wearing thin into the third season. The two episodes I've seen are pretty un-epic. I'd rather see it die into cult status than live on into genericity.

I sort of liked the 2nd season toward the very end, but the real shame is that the 3rd season episodes are actually Good (maybe these writers do better when they're forced to fit it all into 10 episodes).
I'd rather see it die into cult status than live on into genericity.
I generally agree (the new Battlestar Galactica), but it doesn't seem to me that they can close Kyle's story within 6 more episodes.

If they had exactly one more season, I could see it working perfectly - but alas.
