    Video not linking, but think I found a better overview of the show.






    The video in the first post, I just thought it was VERY well done. It basically shows the extreme heightened sense of awareness that happens when adrenaline starts pumping into your bloodstream. Realistic depiction. And the tension it sets up, you know something bad is probably about to happen.

    It would just be a letdown for me, I think, if he ended up NOT being her father. Though if that's the case, I have faith the writers will make it up to me.


    I question your ability to discuss the serie without giving spoilers, lol, so I'll probably binge watch everything available first

    I haven't seen 24, but well, I've seen like 5 minutes and have a pretty good idea of the premise. Based on that, I think you're right, but I'm pretty picky about shows and I really like this one. Though I may like 24.

    Like each episode they have to focus on some deadly terrorist of all kinds, or some crazy hitman mercenary type with no ties to national pride, or political idealism, just money.

    Like the last guy was a hippy that thought he should exterminate the human species by reintroducing a strain of the Plague with no cure.

    Far fetched, but it's the characters and overarching story/mystery that make it good. And sure, it has action/thriller movie, edge of your seat suspense that isn't necessarily believable. But I suspend it.

    Just watched the pilot last night.

    I didn't really like the first ten minutes, and when the lead girl admitted to her superiors that she was a "bitch," I almost turned it off because she seemed more like a wet floppy noodle at that point (great, another wannabe female hardass who is anything but, and she's also very pretty... such contrivance)... but I stuck it out and suddenly things got a lot better. She actually DID get far tougher/colder/bitchy in the detached way, and the story got more interesting.

    Dramatically, yeah, it did remind me of Person of Interest, somewhere between a procedural and an action-drama, with a pretty even tone (unlike Lost, which had huge dramatic rises and falls). Like Johnny says, I'm not sure if it's "believable" so far, but the actual events seems interesting. Even the fight on the bridge (which I saw coming) seemed pretty ruthless for a regular TV show, and then of course there's a nice little cliffhanger in regards to her hubby.

    IOW, I'll give this a shot. Plus, James Spader is just good regardless... although my mental image will always be the young kid with all the hair and smooth features and attitude (although I guess bald is better than the Annette Benning haircut). I recognize his eyes here, and the voice; it's just funny seeing how we all age.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
