I have liked it from the start. You cant get to picky on the tech issues as most people dont know a 8 pin dip is not a transmitter.

Reese is similar to Jack Reacher. But he is also similar to all the CIA protagonist characters that are out lately: Mitch Rapp, Scot Horvath, etc. Makes me love the show!! In fact, that's what kept me from the first episode. It is like watching the books I read come to life in a way that still keeps the integrity of the stories and character intact.

I also enjoy seeing Paige Turco. She's always been one of my favorite TV actresses.

I agree. Also the fact that doing all that walking would not break a REAL transmitter. I wish they had used a bit more than a IC chip. Where is the power, antenna? Logically makes no sense. But when does scripted TV ever make much sense. Also the WPA hacking. NO ONE can hack a WEP little alone a WPA network that quick. Then have a user-friendly UI. Um no. But I did like the episode none the less. I've really liked the show.

Not the WPA key, but right now in real life for most newer wifi routers, the WPA/WPA2 passcode is irrelevant to getting connected.

They can be hacked fairly quickly by the right people. Especially when someone sets their password to something easy.

Forget the user friendly UI how about the IP addresses starting with 623 or 429 and having 5 octets. It's TV, you're supposed to let that stuff slide.

This was one of those shows we started recording at the beginning, but waited a while before watching. Once we started watching last month when we had 2 weeks of reruns, we went through all of the episodes rather quickly.

Like the concept but it took a few episodes for my wife who hated "Ben" to get into it. But now it has become a regular show for us.

Next up to try is Unforgettable.

Other than watching Poppy Montgomery - for the male viewers - that show is entirely "Forgettable".

Good concept - very poor execution. I can't stand the character they have her portraying.

This series is starting to loose it's sense of reality. In the show's short run Reese has been tortured, beaten, cut, stabbed, and shot yet he recovers in a very short amount of time. Last night's episode is a good example. Reese was hit on the head with a crow bar, roughed up, and placed in the trunk of a car that was set ablaze. Yet he escaped and recovered fully before the next commercial. Perhaps Finch should make Reese a "Person of Interest" and find out what drugs he's using. :sure:

Good Show. It keeps the wife and my attention. It's a lot better the most of the others. It has a home in my DVR Recordings.

Yeah, it's one thing for him to get into a fight/shootout with 3-4 guys and come out of it than what happened last night. First, he had to come to, then look around his body, find a flashlight, then find a tool and then get out of the trunk all while the car was on fire. Really???

Of course I can overlook all that if they keep bring back Paige Turco. :)

Yeah, but if the series get's renewed Reese will surpass the beatings, shootings, and stabbings Matt Dillon endured over twenty years on Gunsmoke in less then three years!

Reese manages to get "loose" from the car trunk, so he didn't "lose" his life.

Yes, I agree -- the story lines are becoming rather incredible.

Christopher Nolan, who wrote and directed the latest Batman reboots, is behind this show. I think he's even written several of the episodes. You can see the similarities between the main characters. Loners, indestructible, work "in the dark". Heck, they both talk in a whisper. I enjoy the show.

It can work. It just creates a directional high-gain antenna out of the antennae you are currently using.

As for the show, I like it. Good little twists and the characters are developing nicely.

A big yes on the show, still one of my faves. More Paige Turco could only improve things. In love with her since The Agency.

And now that Flashpoint is done filming, that recurring villian some of you hate will probably come back more often.

But my favorite new addition? Bear. He's awesome, as 11-year olds like to say.

A big no on the Pringles can. It works, but the only way it will really work for long-range wifi is if you have a directional antenna (or another Pringles can) on the other end as well.
It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.
