    Finally watched this and based on other things I've read, I was pleasantly surprised. It kept me involved and interested and I'm looking forward to the next episode.

    I really enjoyed this and hope it sticks around for a while. It will hold my craving for these types of shows since the rest of them are now gone.

    As for Laura Innes? I think this type of show suits her just nicely. She's just creepy enough to play this part I think.

    Yup - she's creepy alright. :lol:

    I suspect tonight's episode will tell alot more...

    If they try milking the cow to the extent they did in the first show...the number of farmers may dry up pretty soon from moving along the program too slowly... :D

    Yeah, we did. But if the show were like some other shows, that doesn't mean anything. Not that I'm predicting anything. I don't know anything about this show.

    To me this show screams "Hey look at me I'm the new LOST" for 45 minutes. They are just trying WAY too hard.

    There are also more than a few moments when I feel like I'm watching a cheesy 80's show.

    When he got off the plane, the pilot's shoulder boards has the stripes.

    I guess the president is now on-line for keeping the prisoner's IN the prison. When he was told that they are not being entirely truthful, the pres looked skeptical, not so much since she said, "We didn't tell you everything," after the plane disappeared.

    Iike it kinda. HATE the time shifting thing. I'll give it a few more episodes. I didn't watch lost. If this heads the same way I won't watch this.

    Hmmm. Well, they do overuse the cinematic "flashback" to provide backstory and to help reinforce what's going on. I think about a third of vewers and readers dislike this tool if its overused. Generally, I don't think "Lost" overused it. I do think it is being overused here in the sense that they piecemeal the backstory to the point its so fragmented its difficult to reassemble.

    I assume now that we have what I think of as a "pilot" (the first two episodes which should have been one) out of the way, we won't see so much of it.

    And as I noted in an earlier post, there is way too much comparison with "Lost" or "FlashForward" or "V", though apparently it may have a minor parallel to the latter and probably no parallel to the first two.

    For those of you who don't have Russian friends or coworkers, the mount "Inostranka" translates into Russian as female "Foreigner".

    In Russian, as with many other languages, each noun is assigned a gender. "a" in the end indicates female gender.
