good show!!
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

Ya, but I don't know if it is going to make it.   Nice to see a few of the Lost castaways in there.   Hugo put on some weight though.

i noticed that, and i can't think of him as anyone other that Hugo either....yet.

i don't know.  my husband never takes to new shows and NEVER sits for 2 hours to watch anything.  i don't even try to take him to a theater.  he started for bed several times last night, but ended up watching the whole thing.  told me not to delete it because he thought we missed some stuff and should watch it again.  shocked the heck out of me!  :shock:

wouldn't mind if they did those two back to back.  that would be a good night of watching.

I wish they could "explain" what happened when dozens of family travel to visit the transplanted prison their family, fathers, son, brothers. Surely someone over the years want to know why we cant talk to prisoners.

If you suspend the for-mentioned,  then this is a fun story, seeing who if from the pass, sometimes good guys, sometimes bad.

This series by "Lost" Creators is easily followed through Flashbacks that the prisoners experience in a moment of crisis. I see a lot of the 4400 here, especially meeting new characters - some of which could become a main character in minutes.

*So many questions, why so much blood taken in infirmary.

*And something that didn't destroy the 63ers took the and all are being release, now, from somewhere they are back and have been told a path to file, seeming almost a cat and mouse game with the main character -

* The prisoners are always setup with a drop where they can get guns, easily. The people behind the story is who we need to learn about.

I think they should have some prisoners isolated and still thinking they are in the 60s.

Enjoyable enough but I'll post one I like better - RINGER

Maybe they played it after the race.   I fell asleep during the intermission of the race.    It should be on the web after a week.

so, what does everyone think so far ? i can't believe they killed off my girl ( in my dreams only ) already, i imagine she'll be resurrected somehow. also, i'm almost at the point where i don't think of dr. diego soto as "hurley" anymore, but it's not easy. anyone know when they will be back on the air with new episodes ?
