    I think I may have been a victim of increased expectations; after the reviews here I was looking for something much better than what it was. On the other hand, with only two tuners and this show on at 9pm Wed. and not repeating anymore after the first week, it doesn't look like I'll be watching anyway so I guess it's not a bad thing that it was "meh" for me :).

    I really can't stand all the "beautiful people in crisis" shows on CW and although this was better than some, it was too close for me.

    I really enjoyed it. Sure, it's a CW show full of beautiful young people, and we have a ton of those, but this is way more entertaining than the majority of the others.

    As a couple of others have mentioned, I wasn't expecting the kid to go work for his uncle at the end. I'm really curious to see where that goes. What's his goal working for his uncle? Will he be actively trying to disrupt the operation, or is he mostly going to play along because at least he's not the one being hunted? I imagine that, if it's the latter, he'll be conflicted rather quickly.

    I'm also curious about that "DNA therapy" they were going to inject him with. Is it real, or would it kill him? I sincerely doubt they are just safely removing powers from people and then setting them free afterward.

    I think it was a real treatment. Jedikiah described himself as a biologist, right? Plus, if he'd wanted to kill Stephen, he probably would have just shot him like he did the other guy earlier in the episode.

    Huh, different tastes I suppose. I only managed to get a bit over half-way through the episode before getting bored and checking out. Maybe I should go back and try watching again, but I really wasn't grabbed by what I'd see so far...

    Ok, I give up. Who are the two actors and what is the other show?

    Not my thing...

    The lead guy here is the cousin of Arrow/Ollie Queen.

    I can't get CW here, and after the pilot, not sure it's worth the effort to watch until someone has Season 1 Blu-rays....

    Anyone still watching this show??

    I only watched the first episode and the rest have built up. Just wondering if people are enjoying it. If it stinks, I might just delete it off my DVR.

    I've seen all but the most recent episode. I'd say the quality level has remained pretty consistent. It's an okay show. Not my favorite of the new shows this season, but it's watchable.

    I'm still watching. It's OK. I'm still in on a week-to-week basis. I figure it will get better or worse, and either way make my decision easier.

    I gave up before last week's episode. Definitely peaked in the pilot.

    Have not watched the latest (or maybe I don't remember if I did). In either case, that's not a good sign.

    I watch it, except it isn't in HD here. That is annoying. I like it though.

    I like it too. It tends to be one of the shows that doesn't sit long.

    After binge-watching a number of episodes, I'm enjoying this show.

    Cara's eyes are mesmerizing ... had to look up where I'd seen her before (she's Roger Sterling's young trophy wife on Mad Men).

    I'm 50-50 on dropping this show. I had four episodes backed up and binge watched over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. I'll probably not make a decision until after the barren Christmas tv period. No big spoiler but I'll spoilerize it anyway:
    The inevitable love triangle plot was a turn off. I knew it was coming. They've been telegraphing it since the show began.

    This is another in a long line of tv shows that probably would work much better as a mini-series or limited run series.
