Advertisements I had pretty much the same reaction, right down to giving it a couple more trys to form a connection. There a lot of things to admire about the 1st episode, but it never got me fully involved in these people's lives. What it needs for me is a great standalone episode now, hopefully focusing on one of the characters enough to get me to care what happens to them. Then they can elaborate on the overall story arc once they got me hooked. I'm hopeful-there clearly is a lot of talent in the cast and crew, and they seem to be making a sincere effort to create something worthwhile.
