The series premier was last night January 30, 2013. Did anyone watch this? I hope to get to it tonight.

Here's what one reviewer had to say about it:

This may sound odd but I really want this show to be good, there seems like there are so many possibilities and story lines.

Fingers crossed.

Recorded it, figured I'd wait to see if people like it.

Hate to add another series commitment, but always looking for something different if it's better then whats' already queued up.

So far sticking with Continuum and The Following, but not certain about either.

This is shaping up to be the third brand-new series in January 2013 for my wife & me to try out.

While I haven't watched the premiere of The Americans yet, I have higher expectations for it than I do The Following and Banshee.

I recorded it, too.

We also watch Continuum and The Following. While we are pleased with The Following, our enthusiasm for Continuum is waning a bit. We'll give Continuum a few more episodes before we decide one way of another.

We recorded and watched it last night. Excellent beginning to a show that my wife and I began watching with high expectations. It's a strong pilot.

Great to hear the positive comments! I too recorded last night but was catching up from earlier in the week's fare. Hopefully tonight will allow me to watch it.
