I was very pleased with the network Sesaon premire and Part II.

I just hope episode 3 stays consistant!

Mind numbingly average from me. I can't even work up the passion to hate this show. It just sort of ... exits. I don't think I will be watching any more either...

so far this show is not pulling me in... Tapping's accent is a rather pointless thing.

This show needs a better budget the CGI background is at times horrible but storywise so far not bad.

Honestly i couldn't pay attention long enough so far through this show to figure out what the premise is. She's saving mutants or something?

I always try to give a show 5 episodes to draw me in before deciding I don't like it, but I have a feeling things won't get much better. The premise has potential, but it's all just sorta... meh.

Tivo'd it might watch it later. The two hour premier moved exceedingly slowly; the premise is somewhat similar to Primeval, a vastly superior show.

Well, it's not causing me the same revulsion as everybody else. But Amanda's accent IS pretty awful. And there were a couple of scenes where the greenscreen was blindingly obvious (the black tones didn't match up to the live action).

^^ Yeah, I'm trying to roll with the greenscreen thing but they seem to have a lot of trouble with the lighting or whatever to get it to match. Sometimes it looks like those old CD FMV games.

Caught it on DVR. This is the sort of episode that shows what people really think of morally ambiguous endings. Namely, they don't like them.
It was a nice touch that Our Heroes not only couldn't succeed in protecting the sisters but couldn't even be certain that they were reformed. Ashley was toned down a little and seemed more attractive a character. I suppose the general blah feeling some got was due to there not really much Noble Heroes Tragically (But Really Coolly) KICKING ASS because, well, shit happens and a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do.
Etc. etc. ad nauseam.

Fringe, which also has totally deranged "science," should take a pointer from this show---the broken suspension bridge to nowhere is exactly the kind of over the top nonsense needed. Dull and humdrum does not make up for stupid. Completely insane makes up for stupid. Call it the Farscape principle.
