Saving Hope  
I just bought myself the Pilot episode, since I've seen some posts and tweets about it. I'm hoping it'll be something I get hooked on since Michael Shanks, especially since Amazon has it and I won't have to go through a VPN to watch it like I was having to do with Torri Higginson's show, This Life.

So potential new fandom, because I need another. I'm still indulging in Stargate, of course, but I haven't been interested in ST or MCU, both of which I used to spend massive amounts of time writing for the kink memes. And I adore comment_fic, but I've been a bit blasé about writing for the fandoms I know best. A bit of writer's block perhaps, since the video for Pathology class has me a wee stressed, though new fandoms always break that up nicely.

I know at least one person on my flist has seen it, anyone else? Am I going to be hooked?
: tired

I've seen it! My mother would have it on during the evening. I'd often find myself watching the show more than my laptop. I wouldn't say it's the best thing ever, but I liked it. I liked the majority of the characters and was reasonably interested in what happened to them.

Oh, that bodes well for me! I rarely watch TV without my computer in my lap, because I cannot leave my attention solely on the show I'm watching.

And happy birthday, belated. :D

Thank you, bb <3

It's definitely a show where you can do both and have no problems. If you're watching it online and really need to, you can always rewind. But I never had many issues...I can't tell you if there's a fandom for the show, though.

You are going to be hooked. I was hooked. Burned through it so fast. Wait on tenterhooks for the newest ep to show up on Amazon. I adore Michael Shanks so hard. And I have had so, so many thinky thoughts for Stargate/Saving Hope fusions (Rodney McKay as Shahir, think about it). Also I found fun new music from the soundtrack.

Yay! I'm excited. I can't sit down to watch it until later this week and I am looking forward to it. Especially to see about this Shahir.

nagi_schwarz got me watching this. It's definitely interesting, especially if you like hospital dramas and love triangles. ::grins::

I'll admit I had a tough time with Michael Shanks' character at the beginning. He seemed fairly emotionless. Luckily that hasn't continued to be the case. And really, no-one does the eyes-gleaming-with-unshed-tears better than him. LOL!

The secondary characters are all pretty interesting and complex ::waves at Shahir:: and I really do want to know what happens to them.

I'm working through the eps on Hulu.

Hospital dramas and love triangles, *George Takei voice* oh myyyy. Hopefully his character won't seem too terribly cold, but then, I'll always think of him as Daniel first, who was decidedly NOT emotionally distant.

Okay, I'm kind of excited to see Shahir.

His character gets more interesting after the coma, so hang in there!

You'll have to let me know what you think.
