Anyone catch the premiere last night?

I thought it was a bit cheesy at times, but fun to watch. Kind of like a 21st century version of The A-Team (which I did like). By the end of the episode, I couldn't help but think of the last line of the intro and theme music.

The premiere will air again on Tuesday at 9 PM EST, in case you missed it. Then a new episode after that, in its regular time slot (Tuesdays 10 PM).

TV Episodes Watched - 2009 (1419 ep) / 2010 (1367 ep) / 2011 (1509 ep) / 2012 (1440 ep) / 2013 (1191 ep) / 2014 - October
Feature Films Watched - 2012 (97 seen) / 2013 (100 seen)
Shorts Watched - 2012 (222 seen) / 2013 (87 seen)

Books Read - 2013 (12 read)

I have it on the DVR, but I did watch the first 5 minutes just to see if it was something I might like. I'll probably give it a shot, but I would agree with the cheesy part. The dialog was really bad and other than Timothy Hutton, the acting seemed horrid (especially that guy who played Voodoo on 'Friday Night Lights').

I really liked it. Fun to watch and it held my interest. I hope the regualr episodes don't change to much from the pilot which happens sometimes.

I thought the premiere was a lot of fun. I was surprised by some of the twists in the story. It appeared to be following a similar plot format to Hustle where there are somethings which are also fooling the audience and then we see later what really was going on.

I turned it off after 10 minutes due to bad acting, bad writing and overall a cast of unknowns

Having seen a good percentage of the cast on other shows is one of the reasons why I tuned in on it in the first place. I thought both episodes have been quite fun so far.

It has promise. I liked some of the twists at the end of the premiere episode. Cute. I'll leave it on the DVR, good to fill up the space in these months when everything else is repeats.

Have watched the first 3 episodes, and it's been a fun ride so far.

Any show that has as a line, in the first two minutes "It took me at least five minutes to torrent the last episode of Dr Who"

I loved the anti-piracy response, too Posted Image
