Thought is was better than average entertainment.
I thought about bailing on it pretty early, but kept watching. By the end, I was glad I stuck with it. I didn't love the show, but liked it enough. This is the type of show I won't watch forever. If it has a second season, I'd be surprised if I was still watching it. We will see.
Apparently I stopped watching it after 30-40 minutes. I went to see if I forgot to delete it and saw a "Resume Playing" option instead. So it's now playing with me sitting at the computer. Which is how I was "watching" it last night. Apparently it didn't even make great background content, and I don't even remember stopping it and switching to something else.
The movie being from 2010 and it being slightly familiar makes me think I did probably watch it. Not one of the photos reminds me of anything about the movie, but I remember watching some stupid SciFi thing that had "people" with angel wings like those in the movie poster.
I suppose watching it will be more a matter of there being nothing else to watch than anything about the show itself... hoping they happen upon some storyline that turns this into something more than a borefest. I certainly doubt it'll happen intentionally (because of interesting plots/good writing) from what I've seen so far, though.
I thought this was pretty mediocre, but with some potential. Some of the characters, particularly the kid, seemed to be just thrown in there because "we need a kid!"
More interesting to me were some of the SyFy promos for upcoming new series, in particular "12 Monkeys." Could be interesting.
I don't want to read through the rest of this thread for fear of spoilers. I did not realize this show was based on a movie. What was the name of the movie? Was it in theaters, or made for TV? Should I watch the movie first before starting the show?
Movie was in theaters. I guess you don't need to see the movie, but I think it could help.
I thought the movie was much better than the show. Well at least the thirty minutes of the show I sat through.
Does it bother anyone else when they seem to be acting as if their society has centuries of tradition and culture behind who they are and what they do and it's only been 25 years? I have shoes older than that.
Not really. I think that tends to be one of the themes of post-apacoplytic fiction. Society is destroyed and a new one is built in it's place, often very quickly.
Watched 15 min of the 2nd episode. At which point I realized that I really wasn't enjoying myself, and just couldn't find myself caring about anything that happened in this very strange alternate future. Season pass deleted.
I made it thru #2. Was 5 minutes into the third, when I realized the exact same thing.
I'm getting close to giving up! Still sticking with it for now but its really not very good!
It's not at all compelling and with bad guide data, It's just not worth any extra effort to record.
I just started watching. Yes, I'm that far behind. I'm less than 10 minutes into the 2nd episode and thinking of giving up. Anyone know if it gets any better? I only saw a thread for the 1st episode.
I enjoyed it enough to stick with it, I won't say it gets much "better" but if by episode #3 you're still not into it, then it doesn't really change.
There is a big twist at the end of the season, but not one that changes the look and feel.
I watched the 1st 4. I think I'll stick with it.
Edit: I finished it. It's not appointment viewing or anything, but it was a decent way to pass a morning when nothing else was on.
