Charlie Jade Episode 1 The Big Bang – Initial Thoughts

So I watched my very first Charlie Jade episode ever and I decided that rather than typing my thoughts out, I would just put out in audio form.  Here ya go.  Let me know your thoughts and whether I got the episode or am missing some things.Viewing Challenge MP3 1

    Ooh. You have garnered my attention, sir.

    One question, there is no direct mention to a 4th “verse” just as yet, so I’m curious what you saw that led you down that path.

    (and if you make future links come to the website post instead of the mp3, it’ll encourage the conversation!!)

    Well, there was in the pilot…. the text on the screen mentioned a Verse and an Alpha Verse as if it were two distinct things. Then later in the episode we see the ex-ceo of Vexcor in the Gamma Verse and the terrorist girl in the Beta Verse…..hence four Verses. By the names I am convinced that the Greeks had something to do with the parallel verses. 8^P

    Btw In watching CJ Ep 1 a second time, I couldn’t help but notice the X-files feel of the title sequence…

    Very glad to hear that you enjoyed the first episode Scott. 🙂

    On our recent Tuning In To Scifi TV blog post Summer posted a comment and recommended the excellent recaps that RA Porter did for each Charlie Jade episode. RA, Summer and I did the Charlie Jade podcast but you can’t listen to that yet. However, you can read each episode recap after you watch the corresponding episode. They may help to fill in a few things you might have missed. At this point you can read these posts…

    To answer another question you asked yes this series was shown on the US SyFy channel a couple of years ago. They initially scheduled it for Friday nights at 8pm. However, after only 1-2 episodes they moved it to 3am on Mondays so unless you knew it was there you never saw it.

    That Charlie Jade preview blog post does have a couple of spoilers near the bottom of the post. You might want to avoid the bottom half of the posting if you want to be completely spoiler free.
