Norwegian, loves (almost) all S01E01, watches all of them and base my shows on how I like the s01e01. That being said; I have missed some shows that were slow starters :)
When you - after three episodes - already start thinking "I hope this gets a second season!" - I know I'm onto a new favourite. Absolutely pure brilliance in all aspects so far. It kind of reminds me of the feeling I had after the first The Night Manager episode.
Classic Agatha Christie mystery buildup of the first episode. Gather some people on an island without telephone and let's see what happens :) I'm about to start episode two now.
Very promising start to a new show, I will definitely follow this!
I agree with JuanArango - this episode left me with many questions that I'm looking forward to getting the answers from. Me being a huge Lost fan, I cannot help looking at Josh Holloway and thinking 'Sawyer' - and the fact that Carlton Cuse is behind this series makes it even more intruiging. Can't wait for the series to start on a weekly basis.
