    Next in the line of mystery series that will probably get cancelled before we the the answers.

    In La Brea, a massive sinkhole mysteriously opens up in Los Angeles, tearing a family apart by separating mother and son from father and daughter. Part of the family finds itself in an unexplainable primeval world, alongside a disparate group of strangers. They must work to survive and uncover the mystery of where they are and if there is a way back home.

    I can't be the only one who saw the title and thought it was in Irish!



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,790 ✭✭✭ Mr Crispy


    Lá breá brothallach a bhí ann.

    I can still remember that thirty years later... the opening sentence of my Inter Cert Irish essay that our teacher made us memorise in full.

    The show looks ****.

    That's a great setup and the effects are very good. Pretty original too. One to watch out for.



  • Registered Users Posts: 55,525 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    A decent opening episode however I'm not sure I want to give time to another show that will more than likely be cancelled without a proper ending.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1 Caryl24


    I agree Agent Coulson. Found the show interesting but I'm worried I will get sucked into it for it to be dropped. I will watch tho...I'm a glutton for punishment lol



  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,400 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    It really is Lost 2.0, isn't it? Very similar setup and structure.

    Liked the opener though.... I'll keep watching!



  • Registered Users Posts: 26,252 ✭✭✭✭ CastorTroy


    Haven't watched yet but with other shows like The Event, Terra Nova, Flash Forward, Manifest, Debris and I'm sure I forgot 1 or 2 surely we're at at least Lost 6.0. 🤔 and of those only Manifest made it past 1 season

    Man, this truly does have "cancelled after X episodes" written all over it. The premise does look interesting to be fair, but these Weird Mystery Shows, clearly made to emulate Lost, always flop hard. They're premises better suited to SyFy, or similar smaller channel - not the large networks trying to make big swings.

    Watched the first 3 episodes, liked it so far, it has potential.



  • Registered Users Posts: 5,933 ✭✭✭ OU812


    I normally have a three episode policy. Watch three before I make my mind up.

    Got halfway through the first episode and turned it off before deleting it from my download schedule.

    Will probably be cancelled before Xmas.



  • Registered Users Posts: 55,525 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    I have to say I have been enjoying this however with every new twist they add I just go to myself it will be cancelled before we get answers.



  • Registered Users Posts: 72,063 ✭✭✭✭ Atlantic Dawn


    It's like Lost, meets Back To The Future, meets Fraggle Rock.



  • Registered Users Posts: 55,525 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Well after this weeks episode I'm guessing there is at least 2 people for the other place in modern time and that why the visions link back there.

    La Brea Renewed for Season 2 at NBC



  • Moderators, Entertainment Moderators Posts: 27,138 Mod ✭✭✭✭ pixelburp


    Holy shít. I honestly never thought this smelt like anything that'd be renewed. Guess the numbers have been good.

    That was a cracking twist, in fairness.



  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,400 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    Another good episode this week.

    Finale next week.



  • Administrators, Computer Games Moderators, Entertainment Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 54,400 Admin ✭✭✭✭✭ Mr E


    Fun finale, and lots more questions. 🙂

    This show really grew on me over the season. I think having only 10 episodes has really helped it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 55,525 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    I enjoyed that season I must say, I just can't help that I'm getting invested in something that won't any really answers.

    Saying that I will be back for season 2.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,335 ✭✭✭ California Dreamer


    It wasn't on my radar for a week to week watch so I binged through the entire 10 episodes this past weekend.

    I actually really enjoyed it. The only character that annoyed me was Dr Rebecca Aldridge, what was with all the spoon feeding of information. You know something, just tell them!!!



  • Registered Users Posts: 72,063 ✭✭✭✭ Atlantic Dawn


    Season 2 will start on September 27 on NBC.

    Season 1 is being shown on Monday 10pm on Channel 5 for anyone who missed it.
