    Looking forward to seeing 'Ned' again. :)

    The first episode will air on TNT August 13. The first episode can be watched on the TNT website now.

    It's also available via magical means.

    Looks interesting, thanks for posting. Also has Ali Larter and Tina Majorino, both of whom I love!

    I would never say Sean Bean (GOT). Don't know why but that struck me as odd, he's been in so many other things :)

    I'm a couple seasons behind, does this mean that they cut down his role on Game of Thrones?

    I've read one or two of Littel's books, though not Legends specifically.

    (time to hit the used book stores)

    If TNT does as good a job adapting his stuff as they did with Baldacci's King and Maxwell series, it should be a good show.

    Which probably means they'll cancel it just when it's really getting good, like they did with K&M.

    Sounds like a supernatural variation on "The Pretender".

    I've just watched the pilot episode and there's nothing supernatural about it!

    Good to know. I had incorrectly interpreted "transform" as something supernatural (probably because of the "Legends" title).

    He just slips in and out of his undercover persona which does go easy for him, which you can call transform as well.

    The title Legends is named after how they call all the little backstory details of an undercover agent, a legend.

    It's not necessarily supernatural, but there seems to be a science fiction element that partially emerges by the end...
    He seems to have been transformed into his "base" personality from some forgotten original personality by a shadowy (government?) organization.

    Sounding more and more like "The Pretender". Any of the characters named Sydney?

    Ummm. . . . yeah, "Cut down" his role is what I'd call it!

    I watched the first episode. I didn't see anything special about the show. I'll probably watch one or two more episodes, but I doubt I'll still be around for season 2.

    I thought it was really good. Sean Bean is such a good actor--slipping from one identity to the other. Add a few more and he'll be up there with Tatiana. ;)

    And now I have to find, somehow, a way to scrape that image from my brain... :D

    Was actually a good series, The Accused, every episode was standalone.

    Just finished watching the first episode and all I can say is they sure have a Hit! It will be a hard episode to top though.

    Just goes to show you that YMMV.

    I watched it and was bored to death. I know Hollywood is so much more comfortable with the clich├ęd right wing paramilitary group as terrorists, but it seemed so trite.

    And Tina Majorino's comment to explain away Sean Bean's accent was right out of a Van Damme movie.

    I'm glad others liked it, but I won't be back.
