    Am I the only person watching this show. :confused:

    3 Episodes and I haven't seen a post yet.

    Did I miss a thread. :scratch:

    I enjoy the show. I like the interaction between Edward and Henry especially when they are discussing Edwards' sexual relationship with Henry's wife.

    The story lines (missions) are a little far fetched, but no more than any other prime time drama out there these days and the action is pretty good so I will continue to watch. Plus I really like Christian Slater.

    Now before you go posting back, (if you do), I have not watched this weeks episode yet (Ep. 3), so don't spoil it.:grrr:

    We've seen the first one and haven't watched any of the others yet so we know the setup and it's not quite Jason Borne but its still pretty well done. The line that Edward wrote on Henry's hand (or is that his own hand) about not touching his car was priceless.

    We're giving the show a chance, but my wife thinks it's too far fetched and I think it's just OK, which is disappointing considering the top-notch cast. I also think it's suffering from the stupidity of trying to cram too much in the first few episodes. But we'll see.

    Kind of with you that. I am still not 100% sold, but I am going to stick with it.

    The show is just now getting to where he's really fighting with ... himself. Finally living up to its title. So, it's either going to get better or really worse. :)

    The spy stuff is a little overdone, sometimes silly. And you have to not think of obvious things (like why are they letting him still do that spy stuff). It's not a "must-see." But, I'm enjoying it.

    Hello, all! Newbie, here..I really like the show, too. Yeah, a little far-fetched but so is 24, Heroes, Prison Break, ALL of Sci-Fi, etc...So, I'm not buying that argument. I've always liked Christian Slater especially since "Heathers" (anyone remember that movie?) I started a thread on Sat. guys and had only 1 positive response..imagine that.. :rolleyes: I'm sticking with this show till the end.

    :welcome_s

    Well, I have to admit with the psychiatrist killing the agent who was to kill him, my interest peaked. It means that Saffron Burrows might actually be an important regular.

    It is one heck of a cast:

    Christian Slater
    Madchen Amick
    Taylor Lautner
    Bella Thorne
    Saffron Burrows
    Mike O'Malley
    Alfre Woodard
    James Cromwell

    I've only seen the first episode so far, but it seems pretty good.

    Thanks for the "welcome"! Yes, the cast is killer!! However, I read this show was the lowest rated debut on NBC in like, 7 years...:( (Can't remember the website I read this on, though.)
    How long it will be on is my biggest concern.

    I'm not reading past the first post (I hate "all episode" threads - them's not the rules! :p) to make sure I don't read any spoilers, but I'm behind on lots of viewing. I have all episodes backlogged and will watch soon ...

    OK, I've caught up with all of them, and am in the middle of watching the most recent (from last week), but I'm probably going to cancel the series ...

    I just don't get the basic conceit of the show, which is that Edward, the valuable spy, needs to be protected through an artificially induced split personality, Henry. They're doing the same with Tom and whats-his-name ... Why? I don't see how this is helpful, and to me it seems more of a risk than just giving Edward a cover story, living two lives so that he has full faculties.

    If it was explained somewhere why this "program" is so valuable, I missed it ...

    We watched the pilot and decided to watch a bit more before deciding.

    That "bit more" ended up being halfway through the second episode. Canceled the unseen episodes and the SL today. Just couldn't get past Henry the whiner and many other things.

    Man, I didn't post in this thread or read it because I didn't want to see anything before watching the entire season, due to such a busy schedule. It looks like they canxed it, and I was really liking it. Too, bad, perhaps my DVRing it like some many others did it in. Apparently it wasn't very popular with many here either. :(

    I loved it but when they announced it would be canned I removed it from the DVR line up. Too bad really, I think I saw the first 4 or 5 episodes.

    I gave it three episodes hoping it would get better. It didn't. Glad it's gone. Dumb idea, repetitive script.
