You're right. Going to a multi-national corporation who gets big contracts from the military, who HAPPENS to have a device that reads electric signals between your brain and eyeball, and extracting some chicks eye to find out where the killer is, is completely realistic and makes for a 'good' show.

Yeah, definitely. The one random girl speaks up... "Hey, I lived next to that very bridge." was kind of ridiculous.

I like how they "triangulated" their suspected position. Just a big word to make it sound legit but you have to have 2 defined points before you can find a third.

I'm really just waiting for mid season, when the actors really find their characters.

It's like the X-FILES. There will be a sub plotline that emerges as the series progresses, which has already been set to a degree by the introduction of the large company... and the whole premise. But each episode will stand independent.

I can somewhat see the X-Files in the show, like with the unexplained events, but it all seems like i've seen it before.
Also, in the beggining, I was expecting to see some alien baby or something, by the way the doctors were freaking out and screaming. Was it just that the child was abnormally old, like almost a teenager or something to receive that much attention?

It was born as a baby but it began to grow extremely fast. I forget the exact time it took to expire, or die of old age, but the umbilical cord was still attached.

I'm enjoying it so far. Reminds me of x-files before it started to suck.

i thought it was too corny, and the acting wasn't that great. i Like walter or what ever his name is. But other than that i don't like anything else about it. I guess the sci-fi thing is cool, but it is still not that great. I just don't like the cast i guess

The genious guy, (forgot his name) seems kind of awkward throughout. Not much dialouge, kind of just goes along for the ride imo

Downloaded the first two episodes, starting the first now. Heard good things about it at work but it takes a lot for me to get interested in a TV show. Hopefully this one will be worth my time >.<

I keep looking at it like it's the X-FILES from Scully's point of view and instead of it being supernatural it's explained by science. Basically that's how the show appears to me. Which is fine, but still.

I keep seeing Mulder/Scully in it and instead of it being an alien it's the science explanation she has.

For a show that depends on science for plot devices to keep it going, it seriously blows. How is a baby going to grow in mass without consuming any type of energy? When they look at the satellite images from the past, they act like it is a security camera that can be reviewed, when in reality satellites can only be used in real time to look at one thing at a time. I was just watching Burn Notice, and for a campy cable show it at least uses realistic tech more successfully than this over hyped JJ Abrams bowel movement.

That being said, I am probably going to continue watching it just because I miss the X-Files.

I thought it was going to be bad but I am a die hard Lost fan so I had to check it out. I think it is pretty good so far. The third episode was pretty bad(the one with the guy that like picked up the information through his head or whatever) but the rest were really interesting.

Tonight's episode was pretty crazy with the whole bald guy thing. I just hope they actually answer some of these questions unlike they did in Lost.

The whole lost thing bothered me too, so much that I stopped watching. However, I learned that when Abrams originally designed the show he ended it after the first season. They basically wrapped up his original ending in a story line conducive to all the crap they had to add to extend the series for so long.

I'm hoping this is different, if it's not then I'm wasting my time and I'll never watch anything JJ Abrams touches ever again.

How could you stop watching Lost? I am so addicted. It's the most frustrating show to watch but I just need all those questions to be answered.

I got tired of half *** answers ending in new questions. It was easy for me to quit. There's better shows on TV.
