or no........

geeeesh when the wife hit the church midway into this ep and the priest started his ski story I pretty much felt time stop.

plus clearly the show does not get that no mater HOW much you dark play ominous musical cues it's not going to make something mundane interesting.. for example.. dundundudndun... **moving steel boxes on a power lift**... dunnnnn dundndndn... **more steel boxes being moved on a power lift, much like was we saw last ep.. DUDUDUDNDNDNDUUUN!!!!!!!! MORE BOXES!! Woooooooo whole lot of.......... boxes....... OMFG NO!?!!?

we did get a "slight" forward movement in the total story line.. with the sheriff talking about a plane crash making it sound like he was body snatched a good while back, as in years ago.. I still have no idea why this show is jumped back and forth from say the doctor wife being all knowing and sinister looking to then wide eyed and totaly lost with what is going on with her..

meh.. I still keep watching being I sort of like the cast and nothing else on in HD that I would rather watch.. plus as I have said before, I like the theme still..

To edify, the crash he was referring to was the Valuejet disaster out in the everglades a few years back. This was also mentioned in passing for the pilot ep.

It sure is going slow...maybe next week. I thought we would see the people who have been taken over discuss their plans in private by now.

Building slowly.

Don't understand why Mariel seems to not know what is up. Seemed like dead guy's wife knows she is different, also the priest. Is Mariel trying to hold onto her individuality? Does she think she will be less of herself? The sherrif seems to be functioning just fine. Is that because he has been working at it longer?

Wonder why no one followed Larkin from the air base since she was spotted looking at the cases? I expected her to be aggressively pursued after she got in her vehicle.

Still and interesting premise, just not sure how much longer people will remain interested.

Yep, no picking up there.

But I'm still interested and will keep watching. It's well shot and well acted, just needs to move things forward a little faster.

I love it how in every high security complex one can always bypass the "Authorized Personel" locked door by going around the building and entering the conveniently non-security door.

oh. ..and the boxes? What could they hold, alien remains or equipment to be used in the after catastrophe salvage operations?

Why do mysterious rooms have fog/smoke/steam eminating around the doorway?

You can't swing a deadcat around this one without hitting a cliche.
