    Okay, interesting story. Unfortunately, the acting isn't quite what I would expect from Anthony Edwards and company. Somehow, I get the feeling the director or producers is/are either rushing the takes or really doesn't know what good acting looks like. Bottom line is, the lines published here are not delivered quite believably enough for an enduring show. Is ABC choosing to sacrifice quality in screenplay in an effort to keep costs down? Hmmm?

    No gravitas here. It just feels like a rushed DaVinci Code wannabe.

    Watched it. It didn't convince me to see the next episode.

    Loved pilot. Hope this shows get a chance and people willing to be open minded and not calling it,that it copies other shows. Yeah you can find similar things to other shows,but it was awsome pilot and show has potential.

    just finished watching the pilot, and my verdict is that this show will be Really good or Really Bad, but right now thats still a coin toss

    Ok it does have a DaVinci Code feel, but I loved the DaVinci Code and I liked this wannabe. For a pilot episode I think it was excellent and with great potential, I hope it lasts.

    I'm not really sure what happened in the last few minutes there... What does it mean that he saw himself frozen??

    It would seem that ABC needs to review/revise their strategic plan... IF they have one.


    It's yet another DOA show. The acting was much better in Last Resort.
