Since nobody had started a thread for this series, I figured I would.

I just caught the premiere tonight, and liked what I saw. Beyond the stellar main cast (Dennis Quaid, Michael Chiklis, and Carrie Ann-Moss are phenomenal), I really liked the mix of tried-and-true CBS procedural formula storytelling with the '60s setting and the setup for future serialization.

The fact that the series is inspired by a real-life figure doesn't hurt either, although it clearly isn't meant to be completely true-to-life. It will be interesting to see how things play themselves out going forward, but this is definitely something I'm going to be checking out in the future.

Did anyone else what the premiere? If so, what did you think?
