I can't imagine why you would think you can go back in time and create a civilization that you've never heard of before. Basically, you are setting yourself up for certain failure. Either that, or you do succeed, thereby writing yourself out of history... damn time paradoxes.

Also, saw a commercial for this that literally said "Like nothing you've ever seen before" to which I replied to no one in particular, no, this is exactly like something I have seen before. I think they stopped running that add.

probably not watching...

First commercial I saw, I thought they were repeating that Dinotopia miniseries.

I didn't say I'd be watching for long. I have my doubts as to whether I can actually get thru the entire 2 hour pilot. :wink:

I think that has more to do with your old man bladder than anything else.

Yep, it wasn't horrible. Interesting, sorta Jurassic Park meets Stargate meets Lost, probably a Goose-like script.

I think I like Survivors more from BBC so far.
