  • Very confusing episode

    Very confusing episode, the script writers should have explained it better. I'm totally lost and confused.
  • I'm Lost and I don't mean the series!

    Some of the intrigue is, um, intriguing... but WTF is going on? Looking for Bill, shoots the others. Looking for the little girl, is going to shoot her but can't? Podcasters beware! This is some random dream stuff, can we get a clear plot line, please? I'm in the middle of episode two and I still have no idea how the immortals operate ither than they're not very nice about it.moreless
  • She Was Provisional

    Never before has a show asked so many questions with the pilot and given us so few answers. I am intrigued, but at what cost can I buy in when we learned nothing after this first hour? It has to be Lost-quality to pull off something like that, and this is not Lost yet. if we don't get a sense of what is going on and where this show is head it might not keep me as a viewer for that long.moreless

    • Richard Shepard: (upon entering Oz's trailer) Oh shit. What don't you got? No, 'I Want to Believe' poster?
      This is a reference to executive producer Glen Morgan's previous work on The X-Files, where Fox Mulder displayed on his wall an 'I Want to Believe' poster that included an image of a UFO.
