Yeah I thought this week was an improvement. Still too many flashbacks but I'll keep watching. It's really not anywhere close to a hybrid of LOST and 24 though. More like FlashForward and V. I guess they didn't want to compare it to V because it would "spoil" the alien thing (even though they revealed it 2 episodes in), and maybe because that show wasn't a huge success, but it's actually a lot like that.

They don't seem to mind quickly spoiling stuff at all in this. That thing with Lee took about 2 seconds.

Which I think works. Too many shows drag these things out.

Now I know why the name is so familiar. I named the protagonist of my high school weed movie Sean Walker. ABC = Always Biting Creativity
Rocinante2: you know
Rocinante2: its easy to dismiss the orioles as a bad team
ofanrex: go on
Rocinante2: i'm done

That really doesn't impact the quality of the show.

I'm definitely hooked now. I don't really care if it's biting shows I couldn't get into, I like this and that's all that matters :^
