Loved it, and Spader was excellent.

So, you are saying that using the word trope is a trope of TCF recently?

Best new show of the season! Can't wait for more. Every scene with James Spader was compelling (like, if the Tivo 30-second skip went to far, I HAD to back it up, normally would just roll with it).

just finished all this week's premieres, and this is the only show not paused - i actually liked it! that was a pleasant surprise (hostages only made it a few minutes before the sp bit the dust).

even though i agree with all the speed, trope, cliché, dad, and husband comments, spader held my attention, and i still found it entertaining, much more than the revolution se2 premiere. we'll see how it goes - looks like i'm in for at least a few more weeks.

I thought it was hilarious that we just had a thread that discussed the TV bomb trope and the bomb at the end of this episode played out all the elements of that trope.

Big digital counter - check
3 minutes to go - check
Cut a wire and it speeds up - check
Cut another wire and stop with 10 seconds left - check

Obviously that's the origin of his name.

I really enjoyed this pilot.

The only thing I have seen James Spader in was Boston Legal, but I liked his character a lot in that. I was surprised when Megan Boone disappeared from Blue Bloods last season, but I guess now we know where she went.

Isn't getting a pen in the carotid artery kind of a bad thing?

Yup, worse than an icepick to the jugular, I'd say.

Probably better than a deep knife slice across the carotid, though.

He seemed to be doing pretty good less than a day later though!

I had hopes for this one what with James Spader starring in it and all, but I found this to be very cliched and predictable. A lot of we've seen this before in much better form.

I'm not sure how long I'll keep the SP, but for now I'll record it but it's not a must watch as soon as possible type show for me.

My wife and I loved it. My wife was on the edge of her seat for a few scenes. Part of it is we love James Spader, but the story and characters some how gel'd together jsut right and it really kept our interest from beginning to the end. She commented that this show could be end up being a "great" new series. I agreed.

We watched the Pilot and episode 2 last night so she was pretty pumped to see both back to back.

Thumbs up to what (for us) may be the only new show this season we are going to be glued to each week.

It's even worse if you take it out.

I decided against it back then...then happened across the Pilot last night (don't ask why live TV was on--I never have it on) and got sucked in.

It is cliched but it's fun and takes my mind off things. Now to acquire old eps.
