I was just happy that the show knew it was stupid and was making fun of itself. Other than that, it was very standard fare and even made Ryan stupid. No unexpected twists. Very cliched.
I agree that Purefoy gave his only real performance after the pilot when he said that he earned his kills. That was unsettling. At one point, I thought Hardy got a package with Joey cut to bits inside (his difficulty in getting it open made my mind run wild). Claire might die, but Hardy dying is as realistic as Carroll not coming back next season. It won't happen. I feel bad for Kevin Bacon.
