Damn, if I had said “If this turns out well I’ll eat my hat” then I’d be eating my hat now.

I’m really enjoying this.

The little tidbits I've heard about the show - something about a superhero reality TV show and a Dr Manhattan dildo - sound, on the face of it, really crass and stupid and would ordinarily put me off watching the show completely. But on the strength of the reception it's getting here and elsewhere I'll have to give it watch.

Like any shows there's a few things you could take out of context & deride a show for, but its well worth a watch. Like many on here I stubbornly watched the first episode expecting to hate it but instead its a really strong show & one of the few things on at the moment that I genuinely look forward to.

If that's your reasoning for avoiding it you're seriously missing out, mate.

Really enjoying this; didn't go in with any expectations or pre-judgement and it's been a very enjoyable series so far.  Makes me want a Top Ten series now, but I'll happily settle for a re-read.

hhmmm, well I see it through my SKY pack, but I would imagine that NOW TV will have it shortly as well.

And it really is that good (or it has been to now - there was a moment for me in the last episode that could well signal the jumping of the shark if handled badly)

Top Ten would make a great TV series, finally doable technically and also slap bang in the zeitgeist. Others crave Halo Jones Book IV or a comprehensible end to Promethea, I  just want a Moore-penned Top Ten Season 2. As it was ABC, does that mean Moore holds the rights and might deign to be involved, or did the DC takeover and 'Marvel Douche' fiasco screw that up too? I don't remember,  but looking at the execrable LoEG movie,  I'm assuming the latter.

My memory is hazy, but didn't DC basically buy out Wildstorm to get its hands on The ABC stuff? I seem to remember that there was some kind of exception for LOEG, though.

That resonates with my even more hazy memories.

Another barn-stormer. In a decade of brilliant television this is right up there and if it sticks the landing, will go down as one of the greats. As you can tell, I'm quite the fan.
