Thumbs down

I saw the teaser two nights ago, and it did catch my attention... I too was immediately struck by it's BLATANT similarity to QL. I don't know what will happen to it... it seems that whenever any network gambles a lot on a show, it flops more than a fish does on deck.

One thing to keep in mind is the landscape of TV has dramatically changed since QL originally aired. Over saturation has lead to bland rehashes of the same old thing. A buddy of mine who works out there said most networks are scrambling to get the leftover Trek viewers who were left hanging.

Magical shows like QL, and even the original Star Trek show were unexpected hits because no one saw them coming.

Its when we least expect a hit show like QL that we'll be taken by surprise. My bet is this new rehash, uhmm... reincarnation, uhmm... NEW show by NBC doesn't have the heart and soul to make it truly special. QL's heart is what made it work, and still popular to this day.

Okay, off the soapbox for now!
