Just a reminder that this show is starting. And if it keeps people's interest on this board, would someone like to take over the episode thread duties?

The two younger women look thin to the point of ridiculous.

I'll have to catch it on Hulu as I work most Monday nights, but looking hopefully forward to it...

Too many cast memebers, two many storylines that i didnt care about. Keep the cast small like Fringe or Supernatural and i be fine. Dont like ensembled cast.

Still debating if I want to see this. I'm intrigued by whatever this "event" might be, but it looks like MOST of the storytelling is just going to be standard issue drama crap that we've seen in countless other shows: threats to the president, people getting kidnapped, teenagers getting in trouble...

Just doesn't seem like it's going to be worth the effort.

I'll give the pilot a chance, not much else to watch on Monday anyway.

aka 4400. This is my fear too. Wasnt there just a show on about people blacking out an seeing the future or something like that.

If you want to be spoiled... "the event" is the Detroit Lions making the Super Bowl. The show is split up between four groups of people -- a cult who view it as a sign of the apocalypse and want to ensure that the end of days takes place, the U.S. government who suspect that aliens are aiding the Lions for sinister purposes, Detroit fans who are trying to get tickets, and internet fanboys who sit at home day and night commenting about it on message boards.

As an obese 51 year old man with a Runner's World subscription, I have to say they don't look as skeletal as Ally McBeal in her day.

To me, they just look healthy and in shape.

The brunette is perhaps a little on the thin side, but the blonde certainly looks fairly fit and healthy.

I'll definitely be checking out the pilot. We'll see if it hooks me.

I've been hovering back and forth on this show. People just seem to want the next 24 or Lost, and I personally don't. I want this show to be on it's own terms, but from what I've been hearing there's going to be a lot of pandering like there was with Flashforward last year. Not sure if it will be worth it.
