I personally think that John Does is a terriffic program.  It has a great premise, with excellent actors.  But, (you know there was going to be a 'but' didn't you) the writers need to be drown like cats. 

This show has the ability to become the new X-Files, which I believe is what Fox intended.  But if the hacks at Fox can't come up with some more witty plot lines, then it is going to die, and I don't want to see that happen. 

With this character the writers have the world handed to them in their laps.  But they can only churn out the same crap we have seen a thousand times before (any Fry's out there.) 

So give me feed back here, tell us how you feel.

A month on and off, and this is the offtopic thread, so I don't think it's hurting anyone.  If no one wants to see it then they will ignore it and it will fade away...

This is so embarassing, I am so sorry. So what can I do to make it up to everyone, you want some cocoa, maybe?  I should never have come to this  planet.  I am so lonely here, and I am drunk all the time.  So you want, maybe, I should petition for this thread to be closed. Please, I love you like a father.  I'd follow you to hell and back.

John Does Dallas?

I haven't seen the show, but it's weird that you consider it "terrific" when the writing is so awful. A good premise can only get you so far.

To get this thread back on track...

I've seen two or three episodes of "John Doe." It's not bad, but it's on Friday night on (ugh) Fox, so that's two strikes against it.

Plot synopsis (you can fill me in if I miss something): There's this guy who was found in the middle of a forest, naked. He has no reccollection of how he got there or who he is. There is no evidence of how he got there. However, he is gifted with being 'the smartest man on earth'...or at least something similar. Being the kind hearted soul that he is, he's found and decides to help the local police to solve impossible crimes. And he's also trying to figure out who he really is/was.

That sounds crummy, why not cut out the police and have him drive round in a van, with all sorts of Zany friends solving mysteries? Is there much alien stuff involved?
I liked the X-files when i first saw it because it was focused on the scare. Then they moved away from that and onto the elaborate conspiracy which was also good, but all in all not as good as the scare, but then again maybe they ran outta scary places to go.
