    DAMN IT!! You mean new episodes are finally being aired? The one Friday night that I go out, and I miss it.

    Any idea when Showtime will rebroadcast it?

    Thanks,

    Spence

    This episode repeats tonight at 10:00 (and tomorrow at 2:35 pm)on Showtime Beyond...which is one of the reasons I got a Dish originally (but that's a whole nother post).

    I saw this episode a month or two ago. I really liked it, though I saw what it was most of the way through. I thought how cool it would be if such practice weapons were able to be used in a simulated scenario.

    My wife and I love this show (one of the few shows I can actually get her to watch WITH me[​IMG]) and we're just happy that they're finally airing some new episodes!
    With that, Proving Ground was pretty cool, but I wish that the producers had left us in a little more suspense as to whether the scenerio was real or not, you know? I mean...Jack picking up the phone to call someone was a pretty dead giveaway and at that point, the other wise excellent show lost a bit of it's luster. Other than that, bring on the next new episode!

    Yeah, I thought it was a fair episode... but not outstanding. I noticed several places where they blew it.

    The phone thing certainly gave away the plot way too soon. I think the writers might have wanted us to think that perhaps O'Neil had been compromised, but it just didn't come off that way.

    Another thing that bugs me: the intelligent girl we've seen before was in on the whole scenario. This makes the fact that they "trusted" Carter based on her input not much of a test.
