  • More Powers please!

    I love the humor of the show, I just wish we'd get to see more powers from Bo.
  • Jesse hold on a minute !

    Let's face it, it could only get better after the probably unintentional hilarity of the pilots' "Ninja Bitch" coupled with a ridiculously easy prison break and it did.

    At least in this episode, Tate got his ass kicked by a bruiser of a guy instead of a 100 pound soaking wet slip of a girl and he can hold his head high (well maybe he can).

    In this 2nd ep, Bo seemed to oscillate between sweet as apple pie and absolute brat. At one moment so trusting as to happily nod off against a strangers (she doesn't know yet that he's her dad) shoulder on the bus and again at the end on the couch. Yet still being a pain in the rear on occassions with her attitude.

    The back story this week provided a moment I'll remember for a while, when Bo floated Jesse's favourite fluffy toy in the air and got her own toy to dance.

    Sweet as Hell and joyful to watch.

    I did find it hard to believe she had never had a milk-shake but it provided a nice introduction to Jesse's mother, while Bo manipulated the dice for Tate.

    It was pretty believable when he kissed the girl (hooker?) at the craps table.

    The only thing that really bugs me is how easily the Police/bad guys seem to be able to find the pair.

    OK, Winter & co. have the benefit of the tracker on Tates' ankle but everybody and his brother seem to be able to find them, no problem.

    OK, so better than last week and I'll watch episode three tonight but I believe (no pun intended) that the ratings are pretty bad for the show, so I'm not holding out much hope for its future.moreless
  • unsure

    I am unsure about this show. I don't know if I like it or hate it. I don't like the Tate character but little Bo is a cutie. She can be kind of bratty though and does some really dumb things, like give ALL of their money away. I will have to watch this show for a few episodes before I decide if it is going to be on my to watch list. Right now I am in the middle. I know I do not love this but don't hate it either.moreless
  • Great episode.

    Believe gets better and better. This episode futher the fast paced action, the banter&connection between Bo&Tate and added intriguing layers to the presumed villain Skouras.
  • Great show in the making.

    Just saw the pilot and this episode. I have to say there's a lot of potential. Hoping it only gets better from hereon.
