Caught the pilot and the first episode over the weekend, and I'm quite intrigued with this show -- it was marketed as ". .  From the network that brought you LOST," which I found intriguing, and interestingly enough, it's kind of grabbed me the same way LOST grabbed me.

I described it to my daughter as being a bit like "Granite Flats" meets "Travelers" and "Continuum," three shows that I enjoyed quite a bit.

Looking forward to the third episode.

Really surprised nobody has checked this one out yet -- the time traveler aspect combined with some of the characters remind me of something JB might have done at Dark Horse when he was doing NEXT Men. 

Fun stuff, with good cliffhanger endings to most episodes, and more solid (and timely) "reveals" than we ever saw with LOST.

I'd love to see this show go for several seasons, but the lack of buzz seems to indicate it may end up being another "DOA" series.

Quite a shame.

I've checked it out and I think it's excellent! The first episode had me hooked!

WOOT!  Another country heard from! 

:-)

Glad to hear someone else is enjoying it as well, Tim!

Watching Episode 4 last night it struck me that several characters look like they could have been drawn by JB hisself -- particularly Reece and Jude.  The JB vibe is definitely there, IMO, so I keep hoping that more Byrne Robotics members will check it out!

I'm watching it and kind of enjoying it (preferred Continuum though). Steve Zahn makes an appealing lead, but a lot of the characters seem kind of generic. There's been quite a few intuitive leaps made by certain characters that I find a little too coincidental/easily made.

Also, I feel the people from 100 years in the future are played more like they're from some time  in the past and very American, which feels wrong given they come from a society in which America as we know it has long been gone.

Shock ending to that last episode though!

This show just keeps getting stronger each week, but now I see it's on the "to be cancelled" list. 

Sad.
