Man, I love this show. I got hooked while watching the "L.D.S.K' episode. It has a sort of "Silence of The Lambs" vibe.

I think that this is a much better vehicle for Mandy Patinkin than "Dead Like Me."

Is anybody else watching this series?

I like this series, too. I agree this is a good role for Mandy Patinkin. The other characters are pretty good as well. I like Reid, and his relationship with Gideon - sort of a father son deal going on.

This episode, like all shows with an artificial deadline, really irritated me.

By 24 hours, most are dead. So they then "have to find her in the next 4 hours." Like the bad guy is sitting there looking at his watch and says "woops, it's been 24 hours. I have to kill you now."

It's not just TV shows, it's 99% of all human beings, who mistake statistics for facts.

That's right! 99% of all human beings!

But seriously, I like this show too. It's quiet quality, which makes me nervous that 99% of all human beings aren't noticing it--how are the ratings?

I also love this show and all the characters. This is one of the few fall premiered show that I still have a season pass for. Mandy is great.

Actually the ratings are quite high considering its up against Lost.

I'm liking this show as well. I found it as re-runs over the holidays and now have a season pass. A good catch I think.

Like most shows I watch I have to TiVo them first. Otherwise the commercials break your concentration. Not to mention you can watch the whole thing in ~44 minutes. :)

I like it too. I've had the SP from the pilot, and it's one of only a couple that have survived this season.

For some reason, the critics really hate it, calling it cliched and derivative and utterly unoriginal.

I say to those critics: Sit on it. I like it. Oh, yes, more Lola Glaudini, please.

I like the show, but I find their "gimmick" annoying. That thing they do with an agent talking about a profile and having them walk around a green-screened visualization of the profile... it got old pretty quickly.

Well, here's a shocker, (to me, anyway).

According to IMDb, for the week of 1/5/06, a special Thursday airing was at the #10 spot.

And for the week of 12/21/05 it was actually at #5.

Usually, the stuff I like doesn't do all that well. :)
