    Last night episode was good, but a little slow. I had higher expectations. :( It ended up been a character building exercise. Don't you think?

    I don't watch this but it strikes me as something I'd enjoy. I should swap it out for the lesser of Desperate Housewives or Greys. The bonus is that the 4400 is starting soon so I'll get to watch something with my wife that I actually liked/picked.

    Its all about time. If I watch too much TV then no music or movies. Its a balancing act. I wish I was one of those people who could get buy on 6 hours of sleep each night. It wouldn't be an issue.

    Thank God for DVR's is all I can say...I can watch our fav shows in a fraction of time and still get to bed at a somewhat decent hour.

    That would be pretty cool.

    Overall, last night did not have the "WOW" factor of the dark future episode, but I didn't seriously think anything (except maybe the very last ep) could top last week's episode.

    Looking forward to the next two weeks.

    We were talking about it at work this morning. I don't see any way to avoid the dark cliffhanger that is ominously looming over the next two episodes.

    Possible spoilers below:



    Now then, it has been said by the producers/writters that the first volume (season 1) will wrap up the New York exploding story line, and that next year the story will move on to other things. I believe there will be minor cliffhangers, for example we may not know every one who is alive or dead at the end of this season, also they have said that we will learn early next season exactly how Syler get the hero power from the brain of his victims (obvioulsy he survives season one)

    I have been reading the online novel and it really adds another level to the show. It doesnt tell you whats coming its more like it adds depth to the story line. highly recommended!

    I agree Jerry, this episode was a bit slow. We did get one new character - the little girl who knows where everyone is.

    CJ, I bet you would like this show. Maybe you can watch the first season this summer on dvd.

    That would be one way to catch up. I'll have to add that to my to do list. There are a lot of shows I started watching but eventually if my wife doesn't watch them, I lose interest. I used to LOVE smallville but just kind of lost interest.

    I had no idea NBC was doing that. That's pretty neat. It says there are "limited commercial interruptions." I wonder how limited.
