The episodes after this don't appear to have been scheduled.

They should be about to check out the first planet, yes? That's the big problem with this series, it's halfway into it's 13-episode run, and NOTHING has happened yet. No real drama or suspense. Gotta give us something if you want to string us along. They're trying the LOST method here, but without the interesting day-to-day episodes to keep it going. Gotta give us lots of smaller stuff, if you aren't going to give up much on the BIG thing...

Looks like it's VCR setting time. I'll just fast-forward to the good parts.

I guess this is my last chance, huh?

They're trying the LOST method here,
Yet they forgot what we got immediately on that show:

-Why did the plane crash?
-Is anyone going to rescue them?
-Are some of these people (Kate, Sayid, Sawyer, Locke) potentially dangerous?
-What the heck was that thing in the jungle?!?
-What is a polar bear doing here?
-Will someone please take that gun away from the insane redneck lunatic???
-Why was someone on the island for 16 years and nobody's rescued them???!!!

not to mention:
-Where ARE they?????

It amazes me how many times Lost has been imitated in ways that are obviously missing key elements, such as being interesting.

I agree. This episode ends on a cliffhanger and will have you wondering what happens next.

Oh, and they're 6 days away from Venus.

Well then ABC couldn't have picked a better episode to end on, then. Does anyone know if any future episodes are even going to air?

Pretty good episode, though I thought the blind obedience training was WAY over the top. Nobody teaches that, not even the military (No matter what some partisan idiots think).

Anyway, I've figured out what Beta is.



Anyway, it's a shame this show is doomed and we won't get much info.

Now THAT was a good episode - and a great cliffhanger.

Finally, we made some headway concerning the overall plot. Seems like Jen is the only one who doesn't see anything. I wonder what the others are seeing.

I think it is because she hasn't lost anything. Which is quite interesting.

I wonder what the fat nerd lost.

Ambassador Kosh...only to them, he probably looks like a big angel or something.

(Except that Catholic chick saw Jesus Christ Himself...)


Eh...I can't figure out how to do spoiler code...anyone know the tag???

Wow, what an episode for once I'm glad Ted stood up to Goss,and said that "he is responsible of the well being of his crew".
I gave this episode an excellent,because a commander regardless of his orders unless those orders conflict must keep his crew in the loop about the particulars of the mission. Yes there is a chain of command,but if an order is given that imperil's the safety of the crew I would go ahead and tell the crew in order to make them work better as a team.

That's my thoughts,and i'm sticking to it.

Signed

It was billed as the Season Finale at the very beginning-actually, in the logo sequence of the Shark Tank closing credits.

So it's only natural we lose it with the best episode aired thus far.
