    It looks really good.

    However it's probably got the kiss of death being compared to Lost.

    looks like absolute crap
























    I'm in

    Naw, looks like a Lost'alike trying way too hard, and about 10 years too late. Mystery Box shows aren't totally prehistoric but I think they've run their course and most lose their audience once the show fails to go anywhere.

    I really want it to be good. I get the LOST comparison, but I'm feeling a more The 4400 vibe from it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,751 ✭✭✭ Ste-


    Due to start September 24th.

    I think it looks good.


  • Registered Users Posts: 71,989 ✭✭✭✭ Atlantic Dawn


    Looks good.

    If it was me as the script writer I'd have secretly imprisoned all the passengers in some prison somewhere in the US after the plane landed and have them escaping every few weeks, it would be like Lost meets Prison Break.

    I think that looks good. It's like Lost in reverse (i.e. what happens after the Island if they all survived with amnesia? :))


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,447 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Started last night.

    A decent opener setting up the mystery.


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,399 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    Liked this a lot. Great setup for the season.

    I didn't like the assertion that the kid seems to be so important.
    I feel like that has been done to death in other shows.

    Flight of the 4400 Navigators. Compliance!

    I'm curious so I will check out more to see how it goes. The 5 year thing makes me think of Odyssey 5, though they travelled back 5 years.
    As for the kid, I agree that I hope he's not a big important factor. Half expected him to be cured when he landed


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,447 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Prince Charming has a great presence about him when on a show he is just watchable.

    Just wait until he starts going on about hope


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭ Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Decent first episode, will stick with it for a few weeks anyway to see if it goes anywhere.


  • Registered Users Posts: 33,793 ✭✭✭✭ eagle eye


    Yeah, ok and has potential but I'm not sure about it. Having said that I'll stay tuned and give it a chance.


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,399 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    I think it slowed down a bit in the second episode, but it was still good.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,503 ✭✭✭✭ Also Starring LeVar Burton


    Meh... I worried this might happen, but the second episode did absolutely nothing for me, so I think I'm out.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,226 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Michaela reminds me of Ellen Muth.

    So Ben is a teacher?

    Something I was wondering about was if the doctor was working on her research on the plane when her laptop fell, then how did her hospital get it? She seemed to imply she never sent it yet they said they got it

  • Moderators, Music Moderators Posts: 3,615 Mod ✭✭✭✭ eeloe


    Watched the first episode last night, after seeing the teaser a few months ago i was really looking forward to it.

    Have to stay episode 1 lived up to my expectations, going for episode 2 tonight, all going well.

    Looking forward to it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,099 ✭✭✭ TheSheriff


    Also gonna stay with this I think - two episodes down.

    Really has that "lost" feel about it so I'll stay with.


  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,399 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    Episode 3 was good too.

    I'm getting some religious vibes from it - I hope it doesn't lean too much into that.

    So a cult and a conspiracy.

    And what has the friend's mother going wandering at that exact moment got to do with Michaela's powers? the "set them free" makes sense since that was a set thing. But this was more coincidental. Not to mention how handy it was that the woman was stupid enough to leave evidence in the seat beside her for a full day, at least.

    How many were on the flight, since the way it's been so far is a case/passenger of the week


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,395 ✭✭✭ Rfrip


    Anyone watching this. It’s nbc and I’m watching online at the mo.
    Five episodes in and its good!
    It’s about a plane that suffers turbulence and then it goes from there...

    It can only improve I guess

    Hmmm... have there really been no posts on this thread since October? :o

    Season finale last night. No major answers but a definite endpoint for the show has been set in stone (although we need 5 more years to get there... good luck with that!)

    Good series overall, but nothing spectacular.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,447 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Was that really the season finale.

    When I saw the end date I went the only way it makes to that date is time jumps as the show won’t be renewed for 5 more seasons.


    It a decent background show that’s about it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,667 ✭✭✭ BandMember


    Just finished watching the finale there and I don't really know how to feel about that season to be honest, seemed to a few episodes and storylines that went nowhere or nothing happening and felt that the ending was rushed.

    Surprised there's so little comment given the following it seems to have Stateside and online....

    Is this worth watching? Sounds like it's another one of those mystery series where the mystery is never really explained and it just drags on
