The new Damon Lindelof show, only this time based on a book of the same name by Tom Perrotta (so hopefully it won't get... lost... *ahem*).

 

I just watched the first episode tonight and I gotta say, I'm intrigued.  Any other fans out there, folks who read the books?  How does it compare?  Please put all book spoilers in the "spoiler /spoiler" tags.

I always found the book to be one of the best ones from the Terranova concept. The pilot episode was decent. They pretty much altered Kevin Garvey.

Wasn't there already a show VERY similar to this one? I'm not quite sure what it was called.

I'm not sure, I know there is another book series call "Left Behind" but that has a waaaay, WAY heaver religious influence as it's somehow confirmed that the Rapture occured, not just some Rapture-like "sudden disappearance."

 

 

WTF with those dogs, though.....

Watched about 20mins of this and it just didn't do it for me.. I'm sure that later on it may get better but I don't think I'll follow this.. I'll just watch it later on down the road where there is sh*t else on tv.

 

Plus, didn't Peter Berg direct this or atleast the 1st episode?

Yeah, I'm still on the fence, but the episode was compelling to me.  I can easily see it devolving to crap (the LOST creds both help and hurt in my mind) but it also has potential.  Yeah, Berg was the director.

Seems a alright show to me, the weird scene with the daughter crying while she is choking the dude while he rubs one out through me off a bit I'm probably just too old to understand these new school games :p .  Lots of questions need to be answered after the first episode so I will watch it for awhile and see where it goes.

I took that to be a way to show how nuts the kids are going after the sudden disappearance.  Either that or high school has just gotten crazy recently...

So... two episodes in and I feel like they are adding even more storylines.  I'm still intrigued but getting some LOST PTSD here...

I keep waiting for this to get better but it just doesn't. Every ep makes me feel like I'm wasting my time with it and even after so many, I still really don't give a f*ck about any of the characters. If it wasn't on between True Blood and John Oliver, I probably wouldn't bother with it at all.

I kind of gave up on this at the beginning of the second episode itself. I think the problem is with the pacing of the show. It's too slow for my liking. I'd rather watch Extant and The Strain.

I gave up as soon as I was done with the first episode. I just don't buy the idea that people would react that way three years after that event. All the drama and emotional outbursts seem completely fake and forced. It is the exact reason why I gave up on The Walking Dead. Everybody does stupid sh*t that is obviously designed to advance the poor excuse for a plot. Because there really is no plot. There is just the drama and a sad attempt to make the viewers sympathize with the characters. I'm sorry, but that's not gonna happen because every character is a moron.

Well... I'm actually getting attached to the characters, but still don't know what the show is about or where they are taking us... I'm ready for some... whaddya call it... story here.

Four eps in and what the f*ck is up with all the silence and smoking? It's just pissing me off, now. I agree with Yokel about the forced drama, too. This plays like a prime time network show that's just trying to sell advertizing. Same bullsh*t that Lost did toward the end.

Today's episode was exactly what I needed to continue watching. Pretty good episode and the beginning hooked me in.

 

Also, did anyone catch the GTA V music at the end?

I'm done with this bullsh*t. I don't care about the story, I don't care about the characters- they're all unlikeable as can be, and I have a strong urge to punch something whenever these white clad cult c*nts pop up, who by the way don't make any f*cking sense like pretty much this entire series. Depressing lump of sh*t.

I fell asleep watching it last night; will try again this evening.  Although, it's been a rough day already and I don't think I could handle something as bad as anything that got Raavi that angry.   :ph34r:

Yikes. How did you feel about one of the white clad cult c*nts getting stone faced to death?

That was pretty brutal but it was diminished by the fact that we haven't really been given a reason to give a crap about what happens to any of these people. I 'm done too.

I'm still sticking around.  At least through all of season one... i enjoy elements of the show, but do seriously hate the feeing I get at the end of EVERY episode.  That feeling is exactly "WTF"?

My theory is that sooner or later we will definitely be seeing some of the "Departed" return.

 

Here is Nora Durst's husband, Doug Durst played by Sebastian Arcelus. He can be seen in a few photos and in a flashback seen with Nora that lasted about five seconds so you could barely even make out that it is him.

 

Most recently, this actor had a leading role in House of Cards as Lucas Goodwin. Now, why would HBO use a actor like this for just two photographs and a 10 second scene? I don't think they would which means theirs a good chance he'll be returning.
