  • I was also one of the lucky ones to review this show by mail last summer. Many changes were made for the new first episode.

    I got to watch the original pilot summer 2006. I have been patiently waiting for this show to come out and wasn't sure if I would like all the changes they made. After they revealed who Tully really was in the new episode, I think they did make an excellent choice to replace the actor, as I don't think the original actor would have pulled it off. This show is gripping and as addictive as Lost! The cast seems like a great lineup and I can't wait to see more!moreless
  • I enjoyed the pilot episode I was one of lucky ones to get the video in the mail....

    I enjoyed the pilot episode I was one of lucky ones to get the video in the mail. It kept me on the edge of my seat wanting to watch the next episode...the writers did a great job. They put sometime into this and it is going to do well on Tv. I just hope it gets a good time slot to catch the viewers attention...a must watch for suspenseful viewers. An exiting episode that makes me want more...a must watch full of action and drama with twists and turns. I cant wait till this show airs. Any woman or man will love this new show. I had a few friends over when I first saw this and the woman and men loved it....Imoreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • The original pilot was filmed in June of 2006 in hopes of getting picked up by FOX in time for a spring 2007 air date. However, the show was deemed too expensive to produce and was initially canceled. However, in October of 2006 FOX executives asked Tim Minear and Ben Queen to revamp the show with a mostly new cast. Minear and Queen re-wrote the pilot to more clearly establish why each character entered the race. FOX later greenlit a 12 episode order for the series, 13 including the pilot.

    • The original pilot was shot in June of 2006 because Tim Minear wanted to wait for Director Greg Yaitanes to become available after he finished shooting another FOX pilot "Southern Comfort." Ironically, "Southern Comfort" was not picked up by FOX.
