    I don’t watch much television, but this series sounds good. I’m going to have to try to watch some of the episodes.

      I don’t either. In fact, my TV doesn’t work for anything but videos and dvds. I watched this online but would rather watch on tv because of the buffering. The first episode was pretty basic stuff and I expect the others will be too. Let me know what you think.
