I've seen a couple of trailers in the last week for "Next" on FOX. It looks pretty interesting.

Just added a season pass for Next on my TiVo. I wonder how they are filming it with COVID restrictions?

I will be recording it. Probably wait to see what the reviews are like before watching.

I thought about that. But I rarely agree with TV or Movie reviews. I'll just watch the first couple of episodes and decide if I'll continue from there.

I meant reviews/comments from people here.

I'm going to try to watch it this evening. Xfinity has the first episode available On Demand.

I set a timer for this, and a soon-to-be-deleted timer for “Pandora”.

Spoiler! The killed off Dr. Phlox! I think this was a good start, keeping the timer.

The Pandora timer isn't long for the world, it's basically teen angst in space with aliens.

I kept thinking, is it going to be over soon?

I predict this new series will negatively impact Alexa sales. I like the way they came up with such a similar sounding name for the device used in the series - "Ilizia".

Also, was it just me or did anyone else have trouble hearing the dialog? I had to turn on closed captioning.

I was watching this using the Fox App on the TV upstairs which has a speaker base. It sounded fine to me. I also recorded it on my Hopper 3 via PrimeTime Anytime and I haven’t listened to see if the audio is different.

I don’t think enough people will watch this to make an impact on any Smart Speaker sales. I did make sure when I bought my smart speakers that they can’t listen!

Of course, I do have a smartphone, so I know the potential of Evil AI listening in is there…

Makes for good TV, though. “Trouble with bullies at school? I can help you with that.”

At least it's something NEW.:)

The 3rd episode is available on the FoxNow App. You’re right, I don’t remember it being on my local Fox, and I have just the two episodes recorded on my Hopper.

No wonder the numbers are lousy; How can they expect anyone to watch a show if they don’t broadcast it?
