    Was actually pretty cool with all the inter-twinements (is that even a word?)

    I must have missed something because clearly this show was really striving to cover all of its bases...but...but was it previously mentioned how the Indian lady had access to an oven (other than her line about knowing someone in Restaurant supplies)?

    The Jury is still out for me on this one. I understand that there are patterns that we don't see but the boy can, but it really came off as contrived to me. I'll still give it a chance though as it is well made and acted. :)

    If you missed this, as I did, :eek:, the pilot is free to download on iTunes.

    Has this been scheduled as a series yet? I don't see it in my TiVo Guide.

    First episode is March 19th!

    The connection was the phone. The English guy who called Bohn right at the start was in Restaurant Supplies and wanted to get the phone back because it had pictures of his deceased daughter on it, which happened to be the one that was used as a timer for the bomb in Iraq.

    Interesting enough to at least watch the first few when it eventually starts in March. Contrived, yes, but intriguing, too.

    The 75006...
    You hit the perfect word for this. Contrived. And so telegraphed from a mile away, I felt I could see the future too. For example, did anyone NOT see it coming that the dead little girl's photos were going to be on the billboards while daddy was there? :rolleyes:

    I'd give it a D for Disappointing.

    It was contrived but I did like it... though probably not enough to keep watching if this is what they're going to do every week.

    A different kind of show but yeah, contrived. We'll probably watch one or two more episodes to see if they bring it down closer to earth, but I don't have high hopes. And I've never been a big fan of Kiefer's over-the-top style of acting.

    Longest iPhone commercial ever. Hey, here's a thought, you want to make a singer famous? Upload it to YouTube. Of course, sending the phone out into the ether, hoping that a geisha, who knows a Jumbotron programmer, might find it and start a fan club, is a sure fire bet too.

    And I'm pretty sure that the terrorists are going to just forget that Baghdad Boy didn't explode the bomb - even though he got a shiny new oven.

    Maybe when the series starts, they can end the eps by having everyone fart rainbows.

    I wonder what the season arc will be, or just a whole new set of numbers/threads neatly resolved within each episode.

    I'll be watching to find out. :)

    Disappointed Jack did not actually kill anyone, and that Chloe did not get to assist by adjusting satellite positions.

    Decent enough. I will give it a few more episodes to see if they can take any where.

    I didn't especially like this show. I am curious where the next couple episodes are going to go though. So, I will watch 2-3 more episodes before canning it.

    The phone's owner had just told her that was his line of business. How he was able to coordinate delivery of the oven is an exercise left to the viewer.

    Out of everything, that was my biggest gripe.

    During the train station theme, I remarked to my wife that he really needed to establish a hard perimeter. She correctly noted that it wouldn't make any difference - it never does.

    Took me a while to figure out where I knew the firefighter from. He was the Man In Black on LOST, but for some reason I kept thinking I knew him from "Survivor"

    There were more than a couple of parts of this that I admit I just didn't understand. Like the thing with the social worker's mother - was that tied to anything or just something to bring the social worker on board?

    Talk about an unfired Chekhov's gun: why have a line about the risk of getting fried on the cell tower if it had been raining, and then have a later scene on the tower in the rain but nobody gets so much as a tiny shock?

    So if he can see the (metaphorical) red threads and patterns, what does this mean in regards to free will and predestination? Did the boy intervene to save the school bus kids of his own volition, or did he have no choice in the matter because he was tied to them?

    On the whole, I liked it.

    The Sons of Anarchy cast seems to get around. I've seen a few of them on a number of other different shows.

    I like this show and I'm going to keep it and I hope it has some longevity in it. It's a feel good show and I like it!

    At least Ando helped his sister. I thought he would be busy helping Hiro save the world. :)

    Actually it was an HTC Evo. :p

    I used to have one -- hated it. :thumbsdown: Got an iPhone 4 instead.

    I recognized him from Sons of Anarchy before Lost.
