    So, this was crackers bonkers, but very good. Definitely worth further investigation.

    Plus, one of the cast members is Clancy Brown, and John Noble is joining the cast for a recurring role.

    Good stuff.

    Beautiful tender beings.

    Well, I'm not sure. I think we may still get some flashback stuff, I hope so anyway.

    Beautiful tender beings.

    I hope the team keep the batshit crazy tone. It was one of the best things about Fringe afterall.

    This is excellent. First time I've watched a new series that really gripped me from the start. Can't wait for ep. 2 tomorrow morning! :-)

    Is it mondays in the US then?
    This will nicely replace "Under the dome" as tuesday evening entertainment.

    I like how they balanced the humor with the horror. Could have fallen into a bunch of traps but stayed well clear.

    Saw the trailer for this and it looked decent, but I can already tell that black lassie is going to annoy me. When you're overacting in the trailer is annoying you're probably a bit of a twat in the show.

    I thought she was rather excellent, myself. Really sorry to see the sheriff go so fast.

    Ep 2 brought more of the goodness. I think it's a really strong cast (and getting stronger).

    Leaned a bit too heavy on the horror this time but the banter between Ichabold and Lt. Mills is a great contrast that will only get better as they settle into their roles.

    I'm not over the top about the Mulder/Dana cliché where one is a believer and one isn't and the one who isn't really has no reason not to be. Hopefully they'll drop that shit after this ep.

    Good stuff.

    I was a bit disappointed with ep. 2 tbf, after the brilliance that ep. 1 was. Although that may have something to do with it taking me completely by surprise, as I knew nothing about it apart from "it's good, watch it".

    Really? I thought it played out exactly as I thought plus had some things I hoped for. But wasn't sure they would do.

    The Sheriff back from the dead and the other sheriff doing a Jedi Knight

    What disappointed you?

    I think it settled into the "baddie of the episode" rhythm a little too quickly. I'd rather they worked on the main arc a little more.

    The sheriff from the dead is temporary, I suppose. Anyway, I'm muchly happy the hot dead wife is getting star billing, so is bound to stay. :-)

    Also, did you notice someone mentioning 7 years of strife for the two main characters in ep. 1? Quite the run they're planning.

    I did notice that. But I doubt they think they have another X-Files on their hands. They could hardly misquote an international bestseller without geeks taking it to the streets in rage.

    Rarely has "monster of the week" ben such an apt description. I think they'll weave the main arc in with the rest.

    I do hope the old sheriff is there to stay as I like the actor. He's one of those that I recoginse but can't place.

    It's been around 25 years since I saw Highlander.

    Shawshank Redemption? Starship Troopers? :-)

    Anyway, that's probably why you can't place him.

    With regard to "monster of the week", remember that that was how Supernatural began its run, now gearing up to start its 9th season. It's a relatively easy way to establish your viewer base and then weave in more story arcs as the show progresses.

    Another recent example: Person of Interest, began with "case of the week" style eps and started to drop in more background towards the end of the season; it's very quickly ramped up the arc elements with a big gamechanger coming at the end of S2, with S3 starting this week it's exploring its new wider scope whilst still successfully including the original "case of the week" stories.

    Yeah, but they didn't start with monster of the week, they started with the main arc's villain, or so it would seem.

    Edit: I'm not dissing the series, btw, I think it's excellent so far. I was just making clear why I was disappointed with the 2nd ep.

    I was actually complaining when Justified went from monster of the week to episode length story arcs. But as with most things in life, blends are better.

    But the Headless Horseman was the monster of the week, that he's central to the ongoing storyline is a bonus, it's not like he showed up again this week, is it? Well, other than in flashbacks and a dream/vision.

    Well, that's what people are complaining about. Keep with the main story. Don't do a
    This week, evil witch
    Next week, evil warewolf
    And then, Bigfoot
    After that, that native american creature from X-Files that I can't remember the name of
    Season finale special VAMPIRES!

    Or am I missing something? It feels as if I'm missing something.

    Well, I'm sure he's bound to come up again, it's not like they dealt with him definitively, unlike ep. 2's girl, so he was not the monster of the week. :-)

    Just watched the first two episodes and thought it was really good.

    This, Graceland and Agents of SHIELD are going to replace Dexter, Burn Notice and Breaking Bad quite nicely.

    Gonna have to check this out, seems like you're all enjoying it, and a good few US shows are coming to an end this year so I need to fill the gap!

    Banging through Bates Motel at the moment, it's surprisingly decent so far, great cast with a compelling mystery going right from the off.
