    This looks really promising.

    What could be better than J.K. Simmons as the star in a sci-fi-ish spy thriller series? Two J.K. Simmons.

    Parallel universes, and counterparts are more interesting with super heroes like Justice League and Justice Lords.

    Looks good. I'm always down for some good old fashioned espionage.

    Ain't watching the trailer because fuck trailers, but the premise & J.K. is enough to sell me on giving this one a try

    LOL damn I know it could never happen, but can you imagine somehow tying this into the duplicate worlds from MitHC?

    I wanted to reply to the post where you told two other guys about this awesome looking show but not me, but couldn't (it's in a locked thread).

    I had to find out about it on my own, out in the wilderness.

    I'm not gonna lie; I felt a twinge of guilt when I opened up this thread and realized I missed you. Dragon's quote of me is from a completely different thread.
    I was also late to the game on this one; dragon and petey were already all over it.

    Heh, just giving you a hard time. I know when just about every new show comes out, I scour several sites looking for new media on the daily.

    @Anung Un Rama Have you seen yet the season finale for HBO's Annihilation City? Oh man that was freakin' awesome. Can't believe HBO managed to come up with a big budget sci-fi action thriller loaded with an Oscar-winning cast and The CW-level hot babes. I know we talked about this before but maaan, I still can't get over that shocking moment in episode 7. Wow. Hands down the best TV show ever. Good times.

    Oh hi, Loiosh.

    The GIF won't show up. I fixed it for you. It was the Nate Diaz "I'm not surprised" GIF.
