Just got around to watching the first episode last night. I have to say that it's much better than I was expecting it to be. It's got a very Tom Clancy feel to it, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I'm looking forward to seeing how this season turns out.

Giving it 2 more episodes to wow me... they jammed WAY too much into the pilot... they made some pretty.. big.. decisions, seemingly without a moments thought. So that makes me wonder if they were just strapped for time, or if it is part of the plot (IE pre-planned)

Pilots usually have as much crammed into them as possible in order to hook a large enough audience to sustain itself. I'll agree that they seemed to have put a bit too many large decisions into this one, but it's likely that this is simply setting the groundwork for what's likely to be a slower paced show after this.

Think of it as a James Bond movie. It always starts out in the middle of a giant action scene, but as soon as it's done, it quickly slows down the pace in order to build up the plot.

Crimson tide.
Thought the acting was pretty cheesy, but I'll still follow for a few more eps.

Although I reserve further judgement until a few more episodes, the show could really be great or junk

I watch it when I need a "filler" show, when I have nothing else. It's still okay considering it's a Network show. Some good twists though.

Follow it but is the last show on my list. Just enough twists here and there to keep it interesting but still feels like the same old thing. Will not be sad once it ends.

I keep confusing this with the Arnold movie the Last Stand

wasn't this show cancelled? is it worth watching? does the series end or are you left hanging?

The finale was ok. Could have been a lot better imo. The writers re-wrote the ending after the show got axed so there's no cliff-hanger and all loose ends got tied up, but at the same time, this made it seem a bit rushed.

I actually wish there was a 2nd season... i liked the series... but as mentioned... they ended up having to rush alot of things.. especially in the finale..

fwiw i think the cast was pretty decent... characters were all played pretty well and the females were easy on the eye too (imo at least)
