I'm looking forward to it. I'm the biggest Abrams fan but I'm a huge Urban fan!

I saw ads for it! [In reply to] Can't Post

I actually WHOOPED when I saw it. There's some comedy to it, and this type of character is right up his alley. He looks GREAT! I think his sidekick is going to be very interesting... and he warms up coffee, too ;)

Thanks Magpie! I didn't know it was on again on Monday!

I didn't know it was going to be on Mondays either... [In reply to] Can't Post

...till I started gathering info for this thread.

I was bummed because, on Sundays, it would be up against Amazing Race which is one of my favorite shows. But on Mondays, it's up against nothing I'm watching.

I agree that this character is right up his alley.


btw, it will be followed by Sleepy Hollow. This show is not perfect and it has a few more touches of a 'horror' element than suits me, but they give the male lead, Icabod Crane (Tom Mison) some great lines and he delivers them perfectly. I love him in that show.

and another btw... if Tom Mison looks familiar to anyone, it might be from "Lost in Austen" where he played Mr. Bingley.

Does he play the detective or the android? [In reply to] Can't Post

I really hope NZ TV picks this up!

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

The detective, ... [In reply to] Can't Post

...of course. He's way too curmudgeonly to be an android. :-)

There are trailers at the other end of those links I provided... unless they can't be viewed out of the country.
