All Things The Following
I searched back 4 pages and did an advanced search and couldn't find a thread so here goes.
I have watched the first two episodes, mostly started cos' I enjoy Kevin Bacon. This day thing has so many twists and turns that you cant even hit your beer without missing something.
I am enjoying it so far. Have any of you checked it out and whatcha think?

Yeah, we bunched it into the All Things: Television thread I think, but it deserves it's own.

yeah, what I'm mostly "concerned" with is how they'll make this cult thing a several season thing. I mean, the dude that started it is gotta get the needle, then what? I hope it doesn't go the way of the prison escape series that went all limp dick after they all escaped.

I thought it was more violent than it really needed to be. I get just as much suspense without seeing someone stabbing herself in the eye, or a dog mashed to bits.
It seems pretty unbelievable that these cult guys could've gone 2-3 years living a completely separate life without giving away anything, and planning for this. Seems like just about anyone can be a cult member to keep the story going.
Kevin Bacon is really good. I also enjoy the little musical interludes during flashbacks or short sequences (I heard some Deftones, marilyn manson, etc).
Question - when the head FBI girl handed Carroll the book at the end of the last episode, they both kind of smirked. Does that mean she's part of his "cult" too, or was she just smirking at how crazy he is..?
I hope there is an endgame too, but enjoying it thus far.

Really? I take a few days off to mourn a love of my life and this is what happens? This show DOES NOT deserve it's own thread. AND, up till now, I was the only one singing it's praises. Whatever. Life is too short and things are less important than they used to be. Yeah, I like this show. I like Kevin Bacon on it. Purefoy is waiting to be a star...Fox is embracing the cable model by having a show with less than the full boat of NETWORK episodes. Well done Fox. This show plays out nicely as contained episodes with greater care towards the long con. I will tell you, Bacon is ONLY signed for the initial run. Which says that there is gonna be a dark pot at the end of the rainbow. Trite? Predictable? YUP. But damnitall the packaging is shiny. Nice use of the most overused song ever in Sweet Dreams(m.m. version) and last episode used Deftones House of Flies very nicely...complaints about violence for the sake of...VALID. The dog stuff was horrible. Nice touch with the 'the eye is connected by 7 muscles...I disconnected each one seperately'. It's a great start for a network show.

Thanks. No big deal. But where were you when I was the lone voice in the wilderness saying I loved this show??
