Yeah not bad, was wondering if the one guy was somehow going to be THE story line, looks like he will be and they worked around it. Still a danger of it getting old and repetitive. Glad to see Fox is hitting hard and showing 14 straight episodes with rerun once a week. No split season stupidity.
Excellent start with good lead actors. I'm not a big Bacon fan, but Purfoy is always enjoyable.
We really liked it too and were looking forward to watching this one. Not too often we watch something the night it airs.
I recorded it but I'm waiting to watch until I find out it's a ratings hit and/or it is going to stay around to complete the season.
We liked it. I thought they squeezed too much into the first episode, but also understand why they did it. There were also a couple of "bad acting/writing" moments (specifically when he reacted to "Nevermore" 5 minutes after seeing it), but overall very good. Looking forward to more.
I enjoyed it as well.....hopefully the ratings show it
Was the show as gruesome as some articles have warned?
Thanks. I'll pass for now.
As someone on avsforum opined:
Bacon is good in everything.
Kevin Bacon is also good in everything.
It can't be a coincidence.
It was pretty graphic for a broadcast network, in my opinion.
It's not as greusome as a Saw movie but it is above average for TV.
Me too. It's a good plan lately, ESPECIALLY WITH FOX. They like to waste your time getting you to like a series only to cancel it. This just happened with a show I really liked- "Mob Doctor". Fortunately, they ran all the episodes that were filmed but you had to pay attention because they were scheduled all over the map on different days and at different times.
I remember the good old days when new shows that premiered in the fall ran for 26 episodes irregardless of their ratings. And they also lasted 51 minutes not 40.
I haven't watched the recorded show, but heard from 3 other people who did and another co-worker who saw it too. All 4 people said the very same thing - what the heck was FOX thinking putting this show on the air, not to mention before 11pm?
There's enough crazies out there without adding this kind of insane violence.
If they're insisting on broadcasting it....do it late at night.
Because FOX ends their broadcast at 10pm?
Have you seen Bones, Castle, Hawaii Five-O, or pretty much any other crime drama?
I'll have to see myself later this week to compare firsthand...but these other viewers said this new show is waaaaay beyond anything else on TV when it came to the violence.
They all also said this almost glamorized it in comparison to other shows.
Guess until I see it, I'll have to hold off on any further perspective....but all they people were uncharacteristically upset about this show being on the air. One of them already called their Fox affiliate to complain.
If what they described was accurate...then I'd say KUDOS.
If what they described was accurate and offends them then I say "quit watching" and let those who aren't offended enjoy the show. There's no need to get some sort of coup going and get the show cancelled just because some people are offended.
I don't need someone deciding what's best for me. I can do that just fine on my own.
