Chris Larry was right. He was raving about this show from the beginning. Others have told me it was good too. Still I didn't think I'd like it. SHR watched the third episode and enjoyed it. I decided to give the fourth episode a shot. And I haven't looked back. I loved loved loved the episode I watched. Then NBC had a mini - marathon (Episodes 2-4) so I had DVRed those. I've watched them completely out of order but no matter, it just adds to the charm of the whole damn thing. The plotline jumps all over the place anyway (one of the characters can stop time, another can predict the future by drawing it while on heroin) so my watching it out of order (Episodes 4-2-5-3) hasn't hurt. I still haven't seen Episode 1 yet. I can't wait for Episode 6 tomorrow night.
I can't quite believe how hooked I've become on this show. The show is utterly ridiculous. But it is supposed to be right? It is like a comic book. But then again, nothing is more ridiculous than Lost. Unlike that show, anyone can jump aboard and figure shit out easily. And even if you can't, you'll be so caught up in the action that it won't matter. If you have not started watching it yet, start now. Don't wait for the DVD's.
Elements of the look of Spider-Man and the genetic freak show of X-Men are the obvious comparisons. There are even elements of the cheerleader story line (pure evil lurks in the shadows of wholesome Americana) that reminds me of Twin Peaks. Best new show of the season - not that I've watched more than three, but trust me.
