    First thing I noticed. April 29th 2010 is a Thursday (The day this show airs), it also is in April, around that Season Finales air. I wonder if they will coincide real-time events.

    Yeah, the April 29th/~six months thing was a pretty obvious play. Still, not a bad start...enough to keep me watching as a lead-in to Fringe.

    Anyone notice the Oceanic Airlines billboard? Nice touch. Also, Seth MacFarlane FTW.

    I liked the way the episode was handled. It has the potential to do multiple plot twists that if written properly, will keep the viewer in suspense. Looking forward to the upcoming episodes.

    Yeah I noticed the oceanic billboard too. I wonder if they plan on reaching April 29th in real time on the show to coincide with the real time.

    Also, anyone else notice the V promo with Muse Uprising?

    It was very good. It's going to be very hard for the show to overcome LOST comparison bias from viewers though, which is totally unfair, but that's reality.

    It ok, though. Comparing something to Lost has never been a bad thing. Lost = the type of show that keeps people thinking and talking in between episodes. The story is nothing like Lost. The only common element is that it's a show with twists and turns at every corner and you are only given enough info to get you thinking but keep you watching. I welcome more shows like Lost.

    Felt a little too M. Night Shymalan-ish. I noticed that they shot the whole kangaroo and street sequence where the final battle in Transformers was shot.

    I am. It's kinda slow though, really only becoming interesting again when there's some reveal at the end of an episode that makes you want to tune in for the next one. I'm not as interested in the characters as I was/am with Lost. They just don't have that quick appeal factor that hooks me and sustains my interest while waiting to learn more about them. Basically I'm not watching the show for the characters at all, just the story concept/premise.

    I agree about the slow pace. I'm not sure if I like the show or not. Part of me wants to, because it's an interesting concept. I do enjoy Sonya Walger, though.:p  I thought it was an odd coincidence that on here her character has a daughter named Charlie, on Lost her and Desmond had a son named Charlie and on Terminator: TSCC she was married to a guy named Charlie.

    Typically shows with poor characterization don't last. This show is suffering immensely from that.

    The concept is very interesting, but the pacing could be a bit better. I think that is really the only thing that is holding this show back.
