Is this series any good?  I've got them on my DVR, but haven't watched them yet.

Chuck, you noticed those strange commercial breaks, too? I thought it was my imagination.

It's rare that I agree point for point with anybody's review of a subject, but Chuck you and I see this episode the same. Further information on the mysteries of the plot and the use and displays of future tech are so far the most interesting aspects of the series. But that fight scene was one of the best I've seen on epsodic TV in a long time.

However, there is still that emotional distance from caring about Kiera. I don't feel her pain. I don't care about her mission. I'm only interested in the intellectual and storyline of how the plot will eventually be resolved for the series. I felt like this for the series Lost but I had emotional involvment with that series. I cared what happened to all the characters on that show. Here I'm so far just watching the pieces of the plot line being laid out.

I'll continue watching for now but I've come to realize it isn't going to be a show I really care about.

I find it a little strange that Alec and Kiera haven't taken at least an hour for lunch to meet each other. I did enjoy the fight scene with Curtis and agree about Kellog being the most interesting character to date. Alec's fathers anti tech cult or whatever it is clearly is going to have some influence on events and I wonder if his step brother Julian will go darkside on Alec. It's almost like were seeing the beginings of Liber8.

 @Millean: Eh, the best word to describe it is middling. You may like it, you may not. It's nothing special. Folks who have seen the whole first season do say that it gets much better, but I'm not hooked after three episodes.

@Monkeyfoot: Yeah, those breaks drove me up the wall man. I also really wish I cared about Kiera. I can't really relate to her at all. The moments where she sees some kid and tears up are starting to make me roll my eyes. My wife, who was only casually watching, asked if Kiera cries this much in all the episodes.

 This is strange for me because I'm usually the one who rips shows that all the other commenters are praising, but I'm afraid I'm hooked by this one and I don't know why because I totally agree with the revue. Perhaps I've grown weary of the blockbuster super hero stuff and I'm comfortable and relaxed watching this silly little yarn every Monday night.

 @blankczech: And that's totally cool, man. I'm glad you enjoy it. I hope it changes some so I can as much as you do.
