I was kinda bored by it... post #1  quote:



I tried my best, but only got through the first half hour of the premier. Can't put my finger on it, but it felt like molasses.

I finally gave up. I will wait till the season gets going and see if it does well or not, then might give it another chance later.

I wanted to like it. I tried to like it. It may be just me. But I watched an old episode of Star Trek before and I liked it just fine, so I wasn't in no weird mood...



I kept drifting off, even during "exciting" scenes. The music was drab, the film was drab, I just zoned out and wanted it to pickup. I'm curious what others think, if I'm being too hard on it or what?

That's disappointing, because it sounded so cool. I won't be bothered watching it then.

And, hey, what's wrong with molasses?

Well, wait and see what others say. They might like it, you just never know with art.

Didn't watch it, but I did DVR it. Who knows when I can get to it. I have last week's Survivor, Amazing Race, Studio 60 and this to check out. Not to mention this interesting documentary on the Templars and a hour of Three's Company.

I am a TV slut.

Okay... last night, they did a replay of the series opener... and, I watched it.

After sitting through the entire show, I have to say that I actually like it. No, it's not the BEST show around, but I was more entertained last night, then I was on Monday. So, I will give it another go next week.

The previews for next week showed the Japanese guy, in NY, looking at a comic book. Sounds like he's found a comic that is of his "adventures" to learning about bending time.

I finally watched it last night. Overall I liked it. The dialogue was kind of cheeseball at times. But I found it really interesting.

I didn't expect too much, it's more of an ensemble cast that is connected but those connections are going to be discovered and explored in the weeks to come. Makes for better drama, I suppose.

The unbreakable cheerleader is a little hottie.

Let me guess, the cheerleaders made a human pyramid and she fell right on her head, and she was okay, and that's how she found out she had her powers... am I right?

No, they don't show that. But, she's with some guy, from school, and he's video taping her, as she falls, like 5 stories up, and pops all her bones back in place. Her cuts just close up, etc...

When she put her hand into the garbage disposal, and pulled it out, her hand was a bloody, mangled, mess. It just healed right up.

They have your basic comic book style powers. Tissue regeneration, flight, teleportation, ESP, and there is a mysterious bad guy in their midst.

It's kind of like an international X-Men and their Professor-X is a powerless Indian dude that drives a cab.

I hope that it will get really dark.... esp with this "bad guy" who I think is the father to the cheerleader chick.

I didn't catch the first episode, but I watched it last Monday and I really liked it a lot. That mother with the other personality that kills people is really interesting; I want to know more about that other personality.

I dunno, the show might be cool, it just didn't strike a nerve with me. I'm still gonna wait awhile and wait to watch it again, maybe even the whole season, see if it does well, then catch it again.

I know the first season of Star Trek the Next Generation sucked, then it got a whole lot better. It's tough with art, as some people like different things. Pacing and texture were wrong for me with the pilot, but others might find it enjoyable.

I don't know why more people don't dig this show. I like it.

Interesting stories... and it has that spoon-fed suspense like in 'Lost' that I thought a few peeps here could appreciate.

The cheerleader is my favorite so far. The fly bro's are cool too.

It's starting to grow on me, It is taking a bit to get going but I think I'm really getting into it. There are a lot of sub plots going with the main plot. We are starting to find out who the good guys and the bad guys are. And they gave us a clue as to who the main focus is going to be.

well, someone please explain to me what is going on. I only saw the first one but I felt like it dragged and I didn't get it. I know people have powers, the doc's son is trying to find these people, and there's a bad guy taking their brains or something. Is there more to it that i'm missing? should i actually be watching this?
it's tough b/c it's on mondays and I already watch one show and record another. is this something worth sacrificing one of my other shows for?

For those that are interested, I believe there is a mini-marathon this week to get people caught up. Think it's Friday on NBC, check your local listings...
