Truly amazed at the fact that this isn't being panned across the board.

Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci have a pretty good track record. Whether or not this show tanks immediately after the pilot is yet to be seen.

I'm going to give this a shot and I was surprised too on the reviews.

but its getting pretty good reviews. Mot sure if its just being terribly promoted and is actually interesting or if they're paying out critics to say nice things and it really does suck. Either way will keep an eye on the raitings it gets and if it continues to get good reviews and doesn't tank the raitings (although I don't really expect either to hold) I'll probably start watching.

My parents put it on the DVR. I might actually watch the pilot since the reviews have been surprisingly positive.

I couldn't help comparing this to Fringe as I watched and was mostly disappointed until the last 10 minutes when the show got so ridiculous I couldn't help but love it. It's Fringe + National Treasure + Supernatural all rolled together with just the right amount of campiness. Tom Mison is pretty solid as Crane. Orlando Jones is certainly no Lance Reddick though.

Pretty silly but I certainly didn't hate it. I'm a big fan of Supernatural and Fringe, so this may end up being right up my alley.

but they killed John Cho already (probably?) so fuck them

7up dude was probably my least favorite part of the episode. Just so bland.

Well that was...enjoyable? I'm just not sure yet. I thought it was pretty decent and creepy before it started to introduce some of the mythology and got silly. Mison was pretty good.

Going to give this three episodes before I decide to continue it or not. Might continue simply because we're nearing October and I'm all in for some campy halloweeny shit.

I loved this episode! Not the highest quality but it was a lot of fun and seems to have potential, I just hope it doesn't collapse in on itself

Sounds fun as shit.

I thought it was horrendous. It went completely off the rails at the end. But yet, I am curious to see how absurd they can go with it. I give them credit for going full blown crazy and basically threw out a multiple year plot, but man was it stupid.

Going off the rails is what makes this show entertaining.

Yeah, the batshit insanity of the last 10 minutes of this is exactly what made me decide to give this show a shot.
