Enjoyed the pilot. I am looking forward to seeing where it goes. The article was a good read. Will have to watch the video when I'm at home.

I didn't realize Jason Lewis was in it. DH pointed it out "Isn't that Smith Jared?" Yes-he watched every episode of SatC with me (poor guy, although I didn't make him watch it). I love shows with angels in them (Dominion, Lucifer, etc.), so I don't know how objective I will be! :)

Thanks for the feedback.

I wasn't sold after the first pilot.   I started to lose interest after the first 5 minutes which is odd for me.   I'll give it 4 episodes though, the premise has potential.

I finally watched the first episode last night and have the next on my dvr. The first episode interested me enough to keep going. It kinda reminded me of old school Supernatural.  I wasn't blown away but it did seem unique enough and as a plus a few actors that I like from other things.  Will keep watching for at least a bit.

I watched the pilot at Wondercon and, assuming they didn't change anything between then and now, can we talk about the TWO Black Keys songs they played in the first episode and how True Blood also has some fairly prominent use of The Black Keys?

I think that was the biggest thing to take me out of it.

Wow, I had no idea they started airing this already. That's early in the Network schedule.

Are they trying to burn through it before the fall season?? Or are the Networks finally realizing we want programming year round (doubtful).

I'll have to catch up and add it to the DVR!

I actually feel like we get programming year round now days.  I guess it depends on what you watch but it seems I always have a show with new episodes now days.

That is the new norm.

I've discovered that I should be giving all shows at least 3-4 episodes before giving up on them. I wasn't interested in Walking Dead or Game of Thrones when I first saw them. After two seasons of Walking Dead passed, I decided to give it another shot since soooo many people loved it. Once I started to see the character development, I was hooked.

I recently started watching Season One of GoT (I can hear a bunch of people sighing in disbelief) and was hooked on it after a couple extra episodes. At least I can binge watch them now instead of having to wait for the next episode to come out :).

A lot of the time if the Network has put it in the Spring slot, Friday nights or hasn't spent any advertiser dollars on it, I'll wait until it's renewed for Season 2 to watch it. I don't want to fall in love with something to have it canceled after 1 season. It makes me mad I wasted my time.

DH just declared this his favorite new show. I was a little surprised, since this is more my type of show (and he doesn't usually make sweeping statements like that). I am enjoying it too.

I'm way behind on this series.

I watched the panel and didn't think about the show until after I'd caught up with most my other TV obsessions.  Only at episode 2 right now and I am hooked now.  Going to watch more tonight.
