    Tru Calling with Eliza Dushku starts tonight at 8 on Sky1 and repeated on Saturday at the same time. I've not heard anything about this series but I'll give it a go for a few episodes to see how it fairs.

    Just thought I'd post a reminder in case anyone wanted to catch it but had forgot about it.

    Lets hope it's a runner since most new series tend to get canned these days before they've got past the first series:thumbsdow

    Hi,

    Tru Calling, not bad, have to see a few more.

    Angel, funny.

    Las Vegas, looks promising.


    Now - the dreaded logo advertising was back; for Rebecca Loos on Sky one programmes last night. Looks as if we can do nothing to stop it!.

    Tru was a pretty good Pilot. Do you think the "Have Faith in your sister" was an in joke?

    I think that they are going to have trouble keeping the idea going though. I saw an ep in USA while I was at CES and it wasn't as good as the pilot. Still I believe there are some good ones to come

    Angel was stupid. It was funny however.

    Las Vegas is stored on Plus for tonight.

    Up until last night I couldn't have cared less what Loos has done or not. Now I think she must die....as should the on screen logo manager at SKY....cretins

    When I was watching it I kept on saying bloody hell she likes running:rotfl:

    Angel was funny but could have been better. The end scene in the cell was good :D

    Las Vagas was good.

    I watched it last night, seemed a fairly good episode. From rumours/crap etc that I have read it doesn't look likely it will get picked up again as future episodes are not to the same standard and ratings are not so good.

    But heres hoping it gets cancelled quickly so we can all have the Faith series we so desperately need!

    Is it me or is Ms Dushku developing a double chin when looking serious/concerned/mildly alarmed etc?

    We watched it last night and it wasnt half bad for a pilot..... will certainly be adding it to my sky+ series link :D

    did myself wonder about the transport issue..... then again, maybe thinking of 2 things at once (i.e. getting a taxi) is beyond her :D

    It said something in the Sky mag that her character was an athlete / track star, and that's why she runs (and jiggles... VERY nice!!!) everywhere.

    It was also directly mentioned in the script.....She was asked by one of the other cast members, "you're were a track star weren't you?"....guess most folk were busy looking at Eliza rather than listening to the words....which I must say is fair enough and certainly viewing it with the sound off would be acceptable to me..... :)

    Just to make your day, Eliza Dushka is appearing at the NEC this weekend at the Memorabilia exhibition...

    I guess this is what Indiana was referring to - not just being Billy Big Boots and bragging that he had pulled her - Sorry I.J. :D

    Just thought you might want to know...

    I just watched the repeat - quite enjoyed it, but thought it was a little (can't think of the word).. 'loose' full of plot holes, not tightly written... still can't think of the word I want! :rolleyes: :D I agree that it will be hard to sustain the idea over a long period of time...

    I missed the prologue - I am guessing that it was her as a child seeing her mother die, and then hearing her speak from the grave? Does that sound about right?


    All in all 7/10 for the show & 10/10 for miss Dushku! :clap:

    just watched it after downloading the pilot. Not bad at all, certainly a cut above most of the stuff they show on Sky One. I am downloading the rest of the series and will let you all know if it tapers off or gets better etc. :smashin:
