Some people have already seen the pilot either through Yahoo or by other "means" but I'm looking forward to watching this show.

What's the consensus on this (for those who have managed to see it through those aforementioned "other means")? I don't have much hope for this, but I'll probably check out the first episode tonight...

If you're recording this for future viewing - my cable system shows this as being on from 9:00PM - 10:07PM - so you might want to set your system accordingly.

I'll be giving this one a try tonight - some of the reviews have been quite decent.

I really enjoyed it. Think of a Gen-X(Y?) X-files.

I liked it quite a bit as well.

The ending was great.

Those two brothers must be really cool: they know how to use Goldwave -- to find a secret hidden message inside a recording...

Interesting that their long-lost-Dad-only-in-flashbacks plays the exact same role (long-lost-Dad-only-in-flashbacks) in Showtime's Weeds...

Moviepoopshoot's Chris Ryall liked it.

Anyhow - I'll be tuning in (at least this one time).

I'll try it out since I try to give all new shows a chance, but I am not optimistic about this show based on some reviews that I have read.

Hotter chicks? When I saw this a few months ago, I thought it did just fine in that department, at least in respect to the pilot. Regardless, I didn't have high hopes for this, however, I ended up enjoyed it. Nothing especially remarkable about it, but good fun.

It was pretty slow for the most part, but the end was pretty good and showed some promise. Ill keep up with it for a while...

Was it just me, or was the characters faces tracking really bad?

I thought it was actually kind of decent.

I hope everybody who was recording were able to get the whole thing - it ran past the hour by a couple of minutes here.

I actually like it. I don't really care for either of the leads (Jared P's okay, but this last season of GG made me turn on him), but the premise was enough to at least get me to tune in.

I loved the last ten minutes, way to bring it around. Not that I don't have three other things to watch at this same time, but I'll try to fit this one in.

Not bad. Certainly not great, but... not bad. I'll tune in a few more times and give it a chance.
