Did anyone else catch the premiere last night?  I guess it was just a preview type of thing and won't really be starting until March.

I really found myself enjoying it, I can't quite say exactly why.  I guess I'm a sucker for Kiefer Sutherland.  There are certainly things I could nitpick, but all in all I found myself intrigued throughout.  It's a little like Know1ng meets Pay It Forward, but from the creator of Heroes.

Tough to tell how it will sustain as a series, that's going to be the hard part.  Tim Kring seems to know how to set up a premise and premiere, but hasn't proven he knows how to keep it going.

I re-watched the second half of the episode last night, apparently I fell asleep through some of it lol.  I have to say I really like the show, much more than I did Alcatraz.  I'm surprised at the lack of attention it got here, since it seems to be directed at the nerd/geek audience.  Can't wait for it to return in March.

I watched it and thought it was pretty cool.  The way they took so many seemingly unrelated events and pulled them all together was really cool, and it could make for a very interesting show if they're able to keep that level of intricacy going.  I found most of the individual threads to be interesting, but the best moments were when they started to come together in such unexpected ways (the voicemail message was a totally unexpected but awesome twist).  I'm really not sure where they're planning to take the over-arching plot of the series, but I think it has quite a bit of potential and will be tuning in for more icon_cool
