    The fact that we are discussing the lack of a thread in another thread does not bode well for this show. :D

    Here I am ready to discuss (in spoilers) casting shown at the end of episode 2, in the preview for episode 3, but no place to go to do it...

    ...too lazy to start the Episode 2 thread on my own.

    Episode 2 pulled a 3.5, fairly easily beating Castle and Hawaii 5-0 in the key demo. That's a very good number. I wouldn't be surprised if NBC pulls an HBO and orders a second season right now. (Actually, I would, because the broadcast nets never do that, but you have to imagine they're pretty giddy at 30 Rock).

    Wow, a 3.5 for the second episode against other season premieres and MNF - that's very impressive. I guess the endless promotion NBC did over the last couple months really paid off.

    If you actually do want to watch it, it is being repeated Saturday at 8pm.

    I fell asleep watching it last night.

    Glad I can read about how it did in this thread without having to worry about spoilers. :D

    Oh. I just set up the season pass and walk away. As long as I don't get any conflicts I don't bother looking. I don't even know what day it airs, my TiVo takes care of that for me.

    I think the main reason I remembered is that I usually watch 7-8 PM shows the night they're on. I usually watch the news at 9 PM, and go to bed at 10, so I didn't see Revolution until the next evening.

    I will admit there are a couple I know, Doctor Who is one of them. I know the day but not the time since I can't get BBC America without a cable card and with cable cards I can't transfer shows, so I bought a season pass on Amazon to the show. It's generally available Saturday morning, the day after it airs.

    People's...
    There are many trees that will happily grow on a half-inch of soil that's piled up on top of a rock, and then grow its roots around the side of the rock when that's used up. They just don't get much larger than that and then get uprooted by wind, but it's still common. If they'd had large trees that would be more problematic.

    Twenty seconds into the show my wife hit pause and said "Honey, if you ever come home and say 'fill the tubs and sinks with water' I will not stare at you gape-mouthed, I will fill the tubs and sinks with water." Ten seconds after we started it again she stopped it and said "And she knew something could happen?" I wonder, though, if she wouldn't be just as paralyzed with panic as Elizabeth Mitchell's character was.

    I am always nervous about a show prominently featuring teenagers, and especially when they go out of their way right at the start to be annoying and stupid. And so many of these shows depend so heavily on the characters being stupid anyway. Even Big Bad Uncle was pretty stupid: "I'm going to stay here despite the fact that they're coming for me. They came for me. Okay, now that everything happened exactly as I knew it would, now I guess I won't stay here." I hope that the show won't keep depending on the Stupid Ball being passed around.

    Sadly, I would bet the Stupid Ball actually breeds and multiplies.

    I'm going to try to man up and force myself to watch Episode 2 despite the poor writing on yet another interesting premise, e.g. Terra Nova. Sad that FlashForward seemed much better.

    Exactly.

    If even batteries don't work, that means chemistry doesn't work, it means molecules don't have anything to hold them together, and maybe even atoms don't either.

    Suspension of disbelief is one thing, suspension of all logic and any knowledge whatsoever of scientific principles is something else altogether.

    Why am I suddenly thinking of politics?
