    The nine part Showtime series has gotten really good reviews - "24" like with less belief suspension required. Also no commercials and "R" rated themes.

    Caught Episode 1 and was impressed. Takes more time to get into than network time-forced TV, but good acting and build up. Also like they do 4 new episodes a week with repeats later in week.

    The first four episodes were quite enjoyable.

    Fantastic stuff. Good, solid writing and a great general plot and characters. I've added it to the TiVO, and will definitely follow it [​IMG]

    Well I don't have Showtime, and I'm not inclined to give them any money after the cancellation of Dead Like Me, but I'll definitely check this out on DVD.

    Loved it!

    Looks like a DVD in March and a rerun in mid January. Will miss it and look forward to new 24 and The Shield. But this series was a pleasant break from the commercial sliced, neat and tidy series which plague most TV fare.
