    It looked like a good show, but I could not get over how bad the sound was. One minute you'd be listening to people talk at normal volume then all of a sudden everyone was whispering or a conversation would be on tape. I had to constantly adjust my volume, so I stopped watching.

    Very strange.
     
  3. It seemed good enough that I'd watch another episode, but it was a little bit all over the place...and science-fiction as it may be, I had trouble suspending disbelief for a lot of the sequences.

    It looks like the kind of slow paced methodical X-files suspense type show, only fast paced. But that was the pilot, I suspect the actual series will be more of a CSI science intrigue type show, or perhaps it will take a more fast paced action aproach.
    The pilot we saw was very fast paced, almost hectic at times...

    I think for a nerdy action show it was pretty light on "science content", but I'm sure that's just me...

    The suspended hallucinatory state was a direct rip-off of the movie Altered States. But with that said, I'd watch another one or two episodes to let it get rolling.
     
  6. *Note to self* Look out for Fringe when it hits Australian TV in 5 years.

    I would be willing to give it a fair shake, but it sounds way too close to the X-Files from what I've heard for me not to think "ripoff". I could very well be wrong though - I haven't seen it yet.
     
  8. I missed the first 10 minutes and never had a clue what was going on after that.

    seemed "ok" to me.

    it was pretty fast paced .. a lot of stuff happening real fast. the acting didn't seem that great to me either.

    we'll see, i'll watch a few more episodes to see if i takes on.

    I channel-flipped back to it a few times, watched for a few minutes here and there. It was OK. The only part that really grabbed me was the X-ray images they used at each commercial break.

    I thought it was alright. The see-through skin was freaky. I'll watch it again.

    Since I was busy when it was on, we recorded it (DVR) and watched it later in the evening. Well, really my wife watched it while I slept. She said it was OK though.
