After watching the first two episodes, I'm definitely intrigued enough to keep watching. I'm digging the week-to-week procedural thing, but I also appreciate there being an underlying story. I like the idea of gathering the prisoners one-by-one and revealing the mystery through ongoing flashbacks. I see how it could get more interesting and complex the more prisoners they capture.

Oh, and can I just say how much I'm already in love with Sarah Jones? Good lord, is she awesome! Those eyes, that hair, those... Anyway, she's pretty damn close to the perfect package in my book.

I wonder, because who her partner is, that they'll ever do a will-they/won't they storyline.  It'd be pretty refreshing if they did so.

Her overly dramatic tossing the gun away in the third episode was freaking hilarious. 

I'm in 100% agreement with all of what DB said.

That would be awesome! They've already had some nice moments together. And she's tough, definitely not one of these brittle runway model types. She could handle herself in a roll with The Jorge.  ;D

I liked it in episode 2 when her shirt was all unbuttoned and she was angry.  That's Must See TV.

I'm digging the show so far. There's a lot they can do with it too.....

...also, my parents are hooked.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

I will probably download the finale from eztv at some point...  My interest in the show dropped off rather quickly.

Yeah, you could see that coming a mile away. After a strong debut, the ratings really nosedived throughout the season. It's a bit of a bummer. I was obviously in the minority, but I liked the show, and it held my interest. And yeah, the dreaded cliffhanger/cancel syndrome is all too common these days.

I read some speculation a while back that this was the type of show Netflix might look at as a possible pickup for their new fleet of original content. So, who knows, maybe it hasn't seen its last episode.

And besides...

That's also why I didn't get too hooked on Awake, despite liking the premise and style of the show.  I could see the cancellation coming a mile away.

This is why I hate to start a new show.  Still haven't gotten over Firefly.

I currently don't have cable.  I either buy, borrow, or watch it onling.  My friend records me some stuff.  She recorded this show, I liked it.

Bummer.  But maybe another network will pick it up.
