    This show doesn't look that bad! I don't know why there are already ratings trashing the show. I will watch the first ans second episode then I will write a review.

    I look forward to seeing the actors break out into a song. I saw a preview with Lloyd Owen and Melanie Griffith singing "One way or another.."

    If it's done right as musical could work and having CSI as the lead in for the premiere will help it.

    I'll definitely give it a chance. I have seen Blackpool and absolutely loved it, the songs, the atmosphere, the performances. If this show is even half as good as Blackpool I will watch it

    I'll give it a chance but to be honest the chief draw for me is Hugh Jackman, were it not for him then I don't think I'd give it a second look.

    This show looks interesting enough for me to give it a chance... I figure at best, we have a new and interesting tv show to watch, and at worst, a new timeslot for Jericho

    I actually enjoyed the show.. not the best but I enjoyed all the singing and dancing stuff - though I wish they would just let the characters sing and not play the actual track of the song over top..

    Very cliche show. Nothing original here, except the annoying dancing and singing.

    I tuned in the show because of Hugh Jackman. The whole mood of the show is very strange. I really want to give the show a chance but while I was watching it I kept saying to myself "what were they thinking?" I will try to give it another shot but I do not thing thatthings look that great...

    Watching the second episode right now cause Fox is pre-empted. Saw the first and was on the fence about this show. So far, I'm not seeing a whole lot to make me keep watching. Those cops are walking cliches. Drop those two and the show would be better off. And what is up with Melanie Griffith? Her acting is horrible.

    I liked it.. I'm not a fan of Jackman myself, so that's not a factor. I enjoyed the show, the music, and the acting was ok as well. It was entertaining enough for me, so I'm not complaining. It's something different for me for a change, as I'm more of a scifi and horror fan myself. I don't get how this show gets so much trashing, as there are plenty of way, way worse shows out there. But, I guess taste is something you really can't argue about.

    I love TV. But this is got to be the worst ever made. CBS will probably pull it sometime next week.

    ok i was waiting eagerly to see the sexy hugh jackman on tv and singing as well but omg i can see why it got cancelled. They arent even singing it themselves they are singing alongside the original song its like a bad karaoke night.
