I was unable to make it past five minutes of the pilot. I was literally starting to convulse. So, no SGU for me.
Literally, eh? If a TV show makes you literally convulse, you either need to take TV less seriously or consult a physician. Or both.

Or you could just use the word literally properly.
Whoa!!!! No thanks.

http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/convulse:
2. (transitive) To create great laughter.

Seems literally correct to me.
Ah, my mistake, I was thinking of definition 1...as in, seizures. My bad.
