    IMO this is the best pilot since Lost, it was absolutely incredible how good it was.

    Intrigue = 10/10

    Acting 10/10

    Plot 10/10

    Overall 10/10

    =

    "GENIUS"

    Uh.. Dexter, Burn Notice, Supernatural, Weeds, maybe Invasion..
    Your kind of overreacting a bit, the pilot was good but not that good.

    I didn't think Supernatural's pilot was that great. I do think this is the best pilot since Lost which is my favorite one. This was done very well to hook viewers into the story and I liked the reveal at the end.

    These kinds of comparisons never end nicely. Still, my favorite pilot since Lost was probably True Blood.

    Supernatural the pilot was good, but not Lost caliber IMO. Supernatural the show is great though!

    lol at supernatural at being better than this, while i enjoy supernatural it's not that hard of a show to write.

    Dexter was good but this was better IMO.

    And burn notice i don't watch but couldn't imagine it being better than this.

    True Blood was pretty good but it didn't leave me hanging like FF has.

    I thought it was decent, I'll give it another shot next week. I hope they up the wierdness factor a tad though.

    Also I found Seth McFarlen and "Harold" a bit distracting.

    8/10

    This was definitely the best pilot since Lost. Lost was definitely better but this was amazing too.

    Lost is the best pilot I've seen. Then Fringe. Then comes FF. I agree that it's good, but not Lost good.

    As for the others that were mentionned, Burn Notice was good, but didn't inspire me to continue watching. Dexter was really good, but not as much as my top three right there. And Supernatural's pilot wasn't all that good. The show has become amazing since then, but pilot was barely average.

    Yep i agree lost was better and will always be better than any pilot for the rest of human existence.

    But this has to be the closest a show will ever get.

    Now your really going overboard, there plenty of shows with better pilots than Lost that already exist.

    The episode was good, I gave it a 8.5/10. I loved the acting and the final scene was awesome and gave me the creeps. I think the best pilots were True Blood and LOST.

    I thought the pilot was excellent, good acting, great scenery, good characters and early development and mystery. My only critism of it would be the amount of devastation left after the fastforward - granted there would be people dead in water and other misshaps including heavy damage car crashes on motorways - BUT I doubt there would be fires on every street corner and so many injured that we saw when the main FBI guy ran through the streets. That said, I went with the flow and it made it all exciting

    So people think this is worth watching. I live in the UK so I would need to track it down via unusual means. Is it worth it?
