    Anyone else watch this? Pretty bad acting on Dennis Quaid's part. And what's up with his nose? It never used to be so wide. Is it bad makeup or has he really aged that poorly?

    Won't set a season pass for this show. Seems like they are trying to copy Magic City a bit with a period piece, but in the end just another formulaic CBS cop show.

    I liked it. I think the biggest suspension of disbelief is that there would be a woman deputy district attorney at that time.

    Check Saturday, CBS hyped the premiere so much, it would be worth it for them to rerun it.

    I liked but then I'm a sucker for 60's Vegas drama.

    Rating were a tad low for it though.
    It scored a 2.5 in 18-49.

    I watched about half of it and then fell asleep. Maybe it takes a while but I wasn't riveted.

    The pilot was ok, nothing spectacular. I'll give it another week, see if it gets more interesting.

    That's what I was thinking, every time they did a facial closeup.

    Also, can he smile? That scowl is gonna get real tiring after a while.

    I thought it was just OK. And that outside shot of a Savoy Casino looked pretty bad.

    I was disappointed. It's another CBS cop show with a gimmick behind it. At least that's what the pilot showed. Case of the week, rancher/sheriff solves it. I was hoping for more of a mob story. Maybe that will develop, so I'm giving it another couple of weeks.

    I agree - just okay. The critics seemed to like it, but if the pilot is representative of the rest of the season I don't see it lasting.

    There was something about it that I liked, probably the actors, but overall it was just okay for me. I totally zoned out whenever they were discussing the case. I don't plan to watch this again.

    If I didn't watch the first season of 'Longmire' I probably would have enjoyed it a little more. I kept comparing Dennis Quaid's character to sheriff Longmire.

    But it wasn't a 60's Vegas drama. Just another procedural/cop show/case of the week

    I thought it was rather engaging, and one of the better new shows so far.

    Being network TV it lacks two of the very fine attributes that many enjoy seeing in Magic City. Thought we'd like the 60s period piece and Quaid. Disappointed in both. Wife has tubed the show; I'll give it another shot.

    I thought Dennis Quaid was terrible, and I like Dennis Quaid.

    found the pilot to be pretty meh


    Did I see things correctly and see Stardust, Sahara, and Golden Nugget all lined up on the same side of the street?

    They aren't on the same street. That is if they are currently in the same place as they were originally. The Sahara is on The Strip and The Golden Nugget is downtown.

    I'll watch sand blow away if Carrie-Anne Moss is standing in it.
