    Is this supposed to be a full blown series or a mini-series I wonder? I mean, one murder to investigate and then what? And even though AMC seems to be doing Walking Dead right I how they gave up on Rubicon.

    It is supposed to be one day of the investigation per episode. TV Guide has a write up on it and really likes it.

    Yes, this looks like a great new series:)
    You still don't have it in HD:nono: I made the switch from D to E a few months ago, but thought D would have added AMC HD by now. sorry

    Pardon my French, but it really sucks we'll have to endure watching another promising new show in SD at this stage of the game. Maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised by an announcement to the contrary in the next 10 days?

    I'll give it a shot - AMC has done well enough with their series that i'll try just about anything they put out. I do agree that it would be nice to be able to watch these shows in HD, though.

    Refusing to watch a good show because it's not in HD is ridiculous. What did you do 5 years ago? Not watch TV? Do you ever travel and find yourself in a hotel? What do you do? Sit in bed and read magazines?

    Wow that was an amazing show! No splashy computer crap, no fabulously techy CSI stuff, no amazing revelations pulled out of the air. Just wonderful acting and amazing plots and sincerely moving characters.

    LOVED IT!

    Looks like the pilot will air again at 6 this Thursday, followed by ep. called "The Cage" at 7.... Maybe HD by then! :nono2:

    Look forward to it.

    Haven't even watched a half hour of the pilot, but I can definitely see me getting caught up in this. It does seem like they might be pushing some things a little quickly, but I can live with that in the pilot.

    @Sharon: I definitely agree with you. This show kind reminds me of Durham County. Nothing flashy... Just a well scripted and well acted mystery drama.

    We just finished watching it and we both thought it was great. My wife actually stayed awake the entire 2 hours, so that proves it's good. Just wish it was in HD for us on D*.

    There is more than enough for me to watch in HD that I don't need to add anything in SD to my viewing.

    Just to be argumentative, does that mean you have no need for additional HD as well? Or would you pine for more HD?

    (I do, even though my viewing queue is generally generous.)

    I would definitely like more HD channels such as AMC. There are a few shows on AMC I would give a shot if the channel was available to me in HD. However, it's not and therefore AMC does not exist to me.
