this is the best show on tv currently. im looking forward to this release. its very original and fast paced so you wont get bored. the only minor problem is that the creators kind of got lost after episode 12, but its still better than alot of the shows out there. since the dvd doesnt come out for another month, i would bump this thread when it comes out.

The reason why the show got a little bland at episode 12 was that the show originally was scheduled for only 12 episodes and would be picked for the entire 24 episodes only if response was great. The show had to a have a resolution in place, in case it didn't make it after episode 12 so that's why that episode seemed a little out of place near the end.

Hi,

How do you know the show is in real time? is there a clock showing thru the entire serie?

There was a clock that would appear on screen before and after commercial breaks. The commercial breaks were factored in to the running time (there was a 3-5 minute jump in the action around each of the breaks), so as Rypro 525 says the DVDs will not "officially" be in real time.

The real-time gimmick was never precisely accurate anyway. It was often off by a minute or two, and not just because of discrepancies with commercial breaks. That was just a hook. It doesn't need to be accurate to keep your interest in the show going.

Do you think it will have rewatchability (is that a word?). I only saw 1 episode when it first came out.

i personaly think it does. once you know who the major bad guy is, i wanted to re watch it to see if i could see any suspicious actions from the person. and there are some great stand alone episodes 12am-1am, 12-1 pm, 3-4pm, and the entire last 4 hours imo.

and yes rewatchibility is a word
