    Surprise! A wholly enjoyable second episode... after a touch-and-go almost-deleted-the-season-pass first episode.

    The show is worth watching. However, it does not look like it will attract much of an audience.

    Friday shows either need to come in as an existing show with a very loyal fan base or have a star who can attract viewers (e.g. Tom Selleck, but apparently not Jimmy Smits).

    I think this is going to be a pretty good show. Hope we get at least all 13 episodes that were originally ordered.

    One thing I can't stop noticing is that two of the four main leads are midgets, especially the fighting guy.

    Well, that's part of the joke.
    He doesn't look like the kind of guy who could kick sixteen kinds of ass.

    I liked the episode too but it only scored a 0.9 in 18 to 34.
    Even for Friday, that's pretty bad.

    I think it's misplaced on CBS. I just don't think this is a CBS type procedural and the audience that normally watches those would not enjoy this.

    That said, I thought the second episode was streets ahead of the first. Very enjoyable. Sure much of it was implausible (like crashing through a N. Korean checkpoint into China wouldn't cause some sort of international incident). But it's fun in a Chuck sorta way.

    It's more of an A&E show.

    I liked it. Every time I look at the Fighting guy, I think he looks a lot like Prince Charles.

    Big ears and all

    I thought maybe more USA Network. Or even NBC. It sure doesn't feel like a CBS show.

    I meant USA show. It fits in with Burn Notice and Covert Affairs.

    More of an NBC show. Should be paired up with Chuck.

    Maybe it hasn't. There were a bunch of unaired episodes from the last season, I believe.

    IMDB.com indicates that it went into a third season, which conflicts with what a Toronto co-worker told me.

    I guess he was wrong.

    According to Wikipedia, not only was there a third season, but they're now working on a fourth!

    The production of the show has been very strange.
