No question, Orphan Black is the top show in Max's list, it's only a tough choice against Doctor Who.

One good aspect of all these shows is that they have short seasons ("series" in the UK) so one can alternate on streaming a couple of them each week in 1's or 2's as they are not all running at the same time.  (I'm a cord-cutter, don't have cable.)  My own rotation, besides the two shows mentioned, are Continuum (we get the first run in Canada), Defiance, The Last Ship, and 24 (the recent 12 hour run).  The only regular network show (20-22 episodes) that I have followed recently is Grimm, initially tuning in out of curiosity because it is set in Portland, Oregon.

 The only show on Max's list that I don't watch, but which I could have liked, is Falling Skies.  Into season 4, it's too far along to catch up.

 I have been flying overseas a fair bit lately so that's how I get my fix of House of Cards and the first few episodes of Stephen Merchant's cringingly funny Hello, Ladies.  One of my constraints is that my show choice is constrained by free streaming on channel sites (no Netflix, no HBO/SHO) or other legal means like airlines.

Tonight, I am going to try out The Strain, which debuted last week. :)

@betajet ...steer clear of The Saragossa Manuscript...


A co-worker of mine thought that was the best movie made and got a bunch of us to go see it when it was in the theater once a year (this theater had a different old movie every night). The first time I was totally confused, the second time I followed most of it and the third time I was mildly disappointed that they didn't return to the original scene. I didn't realize there was a book but I shouldn't be suprised.

@nexusone1984: Yes, I should have said Fox TV in conjucntion with BBC.

I had so much hope for that film ... until I saw it ... I mean, it was OK, but that was it ... just OK ...

But the 2005 relaunch was everything I coudl have hoped ... I LOVE THIS SHOW!!!

@betamax: Sorry Max, I'm all for "willing suspension of disbelief", but there are limits :-)

Hey -- bald suited him -- I can't imagine him any other way -- would you rather he'd been sporting an "Einsteinian Mop"

michigan0 Sang Kim First, 28nm bulk is in volume manufacturing for several years by the major semiconductor companies but not 28nm FDSOI today yet. Why not? Simply because unlike 28nm bulk the LDD(Lightly Doped Drain) to minimize hot carrier generation can't be implemented in 28nm FDSOI. Furthermore, hot carrier reliability becomes worse with scaling, That is the major reason why 28nm FDSOI is not manufacturable today and will not be. Second, how can you suppress the leakage currents from such ultra short 7nm due to the short channel effects? How thin SOI thickness is required to prevent punch-through of un-dopped 7nm FDSOI? Possibly less than 4nm. Depositing such an ultra thin film less then 4nm filum uniformly and reliably over 12" wafers at the manufacturing line is extremely difficult or not even manufacturable. If not manufacturable, the 7nm FDSOI debate is over!Third, what happens when hot carriers are generated near the drain at normal operation of 7nm FDSOI? Electrons go to the positively biased drain with no harm but where the holes to go? The holes can't go to the substrate because of the thin BOX layer. Some holes may become trapped at the BOX layer causing Vt shift. However, the vast majority of holes drift through the the un-dopped SOI channel toward the N+Source,...
