17 to 01: Assignment Earth

We cut this one a lot of slack for all of the questions they ask and never answer. Maybe it's because it's a fairly solid episode and the questions aren't essential to the plot. Maybe it's because it's a pilot and we understand they're trying to pique our interest.

Coming this fall from ABC: NASA Security. Starring the ghost of Lincoln Demyan, this cold warrior teams up with a DHS agent who has problems of her own. Together, they foil terrorist attacks whether they're foreign, domestic, or originating from beyond the stars!

17 to 01 is available on iTunes. It updates Thursdays at 01:00 AM CT and Friday nights at 8:30 PM ET / 9:30 CT. We're also amazingly on Stitcher.

"Captain, we are being boarded by another TV show" - "What, humans working with telepathic, mind-melding Vulcans in the 20th Century? If only they had a quick, foolproof way to learn my true intentions!"

I was wondering how the two previous agents would have died in an auto accident when they could have traveled via the office tardis, but "watch the new series to find out" allow for a murder/coverup quite nicely; if the two cop characters weren't borrowed from another TV show I hope they'd have been kept on.

I don't know if this is my favorite ep, but the Lansing+cat improv is great, I agree, nominee for best supporting catress... I wouldn't mind at all if her transformations had nothing to do with competing over Gary and everything to do with toying catlike with the secretary. Also, this advanced planet Gary was trained on, are we to understand that it's a planet of catsOHMYGODITSTHENIBBLONIANS
