    I am very interested and it is getting great reviews so far. It is on WGN America and I think this is their first original series.

    I tried to tivo it but it looks like it only airs once a week and I have too many conflicts. My Sunday night tivo schedule is ridiculous.

    I saw a commercial for it and thought it looked interesting. Said it was on DirecTV 307, but I did not see that channel in my guide. So, I'm guessing I'm not in the tier that gets that channel. I'm sure it will be on Amazon Prime, Netflix or Hulu some day. I'll wait to see it there.

    Really? I had conflicts as well and just assumed it would pick up a rerun. Well time for alternate plan.

    Hmm. I don't see it in my tivo's guide at all now, just the Woody Allen movie on the MGM channel. I swear there were two entries in the guide yesterday, one for this show and one for the movie. I don't get WGN, at least I don't think so but it looked like it was broadcasting on another channel. Either that or I mistook it for another show/movie named Manhattan.

    It aired several times last night, just like most of the Sunday night cable dramas do. I watched it and it was pretty good. Amazingly well done from a production and cinematography standpoint, but that's to be expected with Tommy Schlamme directing. It was well written and established several interesting characters in the first episode. I'm definitely on board to see how it goes.

    Oh, and to the OP, this is WGN's second original series. Their first is Salem, which recently completed its first season.

    I will be. I watched the intro program they produced also. When I was a very young kid, I'd visit my grandma in the Catskills. She lived on an estate managed by a very interesting guy who would take me driving through the fields in a Willys jeep and swimming in the pool suspended at the end of the bug screen. During the war, he was a recruiter working for the project recruiting college scientists. Needless to say, he had to be very deceptive about the overall project.

    Here--Cleveland--the regular fox station played it at 10 or 11 pm. Don't know why. I haven't watched yet. Hopefully it recorded, since Big Brother ended up being 45 minutes of storm coverage. :(

    A few days after the original airing? I forgot to create a SP for this.

    According to my guide data, the Pilot is reairing twice tonight, twice on Wednesday night, and twice on Thursday night. The second episode is scheduled to air four times next Sunday night for those with conflicts.

    Cool, I'm in a 3 month trial of Hulu Plus right now. I'll have to check it out.

    I always forget about this TiVo app on my phone. Much easier to use than the TiVo mobile site used to be. I added the SP from the app while here at work. It shows up right away in my to do list.

    +1 on the Hulu Plus goodness. My lineup doesn't have WGN america in HD (I'm surprised I get it at all but that's a different thread) and even in the first minute or two as it was recording last night I could see some content being cut off the sides.

    So's mine, but I use a HTPC with more tuners than any Tivo so conflicts are a non-issue for me. ;) Some nights I have six or seven shows recording simultaneously, mostly due to overlap.
