K-9 on Syfy for Xmas

I see on Christmas Day that Syfy is marathoning the unofficial K-9 series. I know it's unofficial and maybe not the best but it might make for curiosity viewing while waiting for the Christmas series.

Re: K-9 on Syfy for Xmas

While I was flipping around the dial yesterday I came across K9 on BBC Kids here. Looked largely forgettable and didn't bother watching much.

I never got further than the pilot episode. I just didn't have enough interest beyond that.
I doubt I'll be tuning in to the marathon.

Re: K-9 on Syfy for Xmas

Watching the trailer alone killed off any interest I had in the show. Looked far too goofy and disconnected from the K-9 we all know and love.

Re: K-9 on Syfy for Xmas

I thought it was interesting counter-programming. It has to be a response to BBCA and Who because it's not a very typical program for Syfy, especially these days.

Re: K-9 on Syfy for Xmas

A shame nobodies kept up with it. I wonder if like SJA it got better with time?

Re: K-9 on Syfy for Xmas

Saw it all.

Took at least 10 episodes till I became invested and the strange future world began to be explained. Enjoyed the love triangles, and the final battle was a bit of a laugh.

It's not awful.

This is supposed to be the further adventures of the original K9 who we last saw went to Gallifrey with Leela.

Re: K-9 on Syfy for Xmas

I have been curious to see this. I'll probably watch some and DVR the rest for later. I can't say I like the "regenerated" K-9 design, but it is John Leeson doing the voice, and that's the main draw.

ROFLMAO!

"You will know pain. You will know fear. And then you will die." That pretty much sums up my reaction to the pilot.

To quote the Doctor, it's bad with an extra helping of bad on the side.

I wish they'd have just gotten the rest of SJA and shown it.

Well have you tried Wizards vs. Aliens, which is where all the SJA production staff and money went.
