    i dont know why but i thought the action was so much less in this one..less drama...was it my imagination or were you let down too?

    didnt see daddy at all and what happened to him but i did like the rusky invasion vs not the Americans..nice spin on things.

    I still really enjoy it even though it was amped down a little. There are some nice dynamics and some nice cross dynamics. Now the soldiers who ran away...will they become "the others"? :p

    My wife is uncertain about this show. Every time she tries to articulate why it seems like her issue is not knowing what actually happened and wondering if the characters overreacted. Funny, that's one reason I really like it!

    I wonder if it will even take a season before we learn what the seal team was up to that led to this whole mess. I do like that the show seems to be in proper awe of seal team six and delta forces.

    Thought this one was better than the pilot. A little more character development. The pilot I thought rushed through a bit too much. Maybe a 2 hour premiere would have been better.

    If you mean the missing sailors, they did not run away

    I assumed he meant the ones that bailed during the spetsnaz firefight.

    Hmm did they run away or were they part of the 5 that were killed? I was half asleep last night watching so I might have missed some of the dialog.

    The two people following her bailed. Others were killed. The seal showed up later after being marked by the bartender and talked into somewhat taking sides.

    I thought the two ran away hence when they gathered at the village Speedman told the Captain he sent a team looking for them.

    Also there has been no mention of the 3(?) taken hostage. Have they not noticed yet?

    i wonder what happened to the guy who's 'island it was' in the 1st ep. i guess he was just filler but would be interesting to see if there was a mini revolt there.

    He was seen in the previews for next week. Seems that the major plot point for next week's episode involves him

    I'm just going to say we are in serious alternate world Science Fiction category after this weeks episode and any attempt to relate it to reality should be abandoned immediately as fruitless.

    Ignore the submarines and the magic boxes and concentrate on if you like the characters and the drama of the story.

    (And they better do something with the female Lt very soon vis-a-vis the crews respect. I'm getting tired of sailors disobeying direct orders).

    I'm a little confused as to why they wouldn't have the world's opinion on their side. The way I see it, some element of the government attempted to get them to fire on Pakistan through non-standard channels, which they caught onto. The same elements tried to silence them by having another US ship destroy them and then making it look like it was Pakistan that did it. When they proved that they were still alive, the motivation to nuke Pakistan was gone, right?

    I guess the question is had they not offered them the perfect excuse by making it look like Pakistan attacked the sub, what was their public rationale for nuking them in the first place?

    I recall there was talk of some conflict between the President and admirals (generals?) mentioned in the pilot. Were we meant to take away from that that the executive powers were being too hawkish for them to want to follow?
