The second episode bored me a tad bit until the end, but last week was excellent.

As for Fringe, it was getting better and better but I didn't have time to watch it last year, I was pumped to catch up on DVD but couldn't find it for a decent price, and FOX has pretty thoroughly killed it by moving it to Thursday, oh well.

4 episodes in, i still like it. my only complaint though it that i am in no way attached to any of the characters. any of them could be killed off, and i wouldn't really care. hopefully the storyline makes up for what seems like a weak cast.

I put up a thread that said 'Get it?!' to this on IMDB like 2 seconds after it happened.

This last episode was better, I thought, than the past couple. It looks like it might be starting to hit its stride.

I agree, a little Dylan with a shoot out goes a long way.

This series is going to have to show me something in the next couple of weeks, or I'll walk.

Yeah, I feel nothing for the characters.
I think the story is very interesting and has TONS of potential.
But, if they don't write better dialogue and quit with the stupid "music videos" (which seem to be mandated at about the 38 minute mark) soon, I may give up.

I don't think of FlashForward as an X-Files-type show, more like LOST-lite.
Lost had the luxury of really building characters, FF seems to be racing so as not to be canceled.

That blue hand S&M club thing had me laughing out loud it was so ridiculous. And I love how they brought in a well-known face from one genre show to get geek viewers excited, and then they do it again last night. Guess what? Those two can't save this show.

This the only show I can remember watching strictly for the plot. I just want to see what happens; I really have no interest otherwise. And they just blew the biggest emotional payoff by sticking at the end of last night's episode. Gotcha!

Guess we're in the minority here; I thought the last episode was good too, minus the blue hand stuff.

I enjoyed the rest of it, but the blue hand club was really the centerpiece of the episode, no?

The climactic scene with Al was well-done.
