Sorry, I saw it, and think Jericho is still a better show. This show is kinda odd to me.

It's not always a bad thing. I recently began watching the reimagined 'V' and it's first season a few weeks back and found I really hadn't been missing anything.

I thought it started off OK, but it got kinda worse as it went on and ended up a bit cartooney. But all the characters came across as that by the end of the season. Since it didn't run very long I've rented season 2 just for curiosity to see where it went.

watched the second episode last night and is still enough to keep me watching. Still not as gripping as I'd hoped.

Though the uncle is the father from Twilight

I'm watching it. It's very VERY Abramsified, but that's okay. It's the only new show of the season I watch. I'm a Jericho fan too, so it's semi-familiar territory.

I have mixed feelings about it so far, but I plan to keep going for now.

So through the whole "seige" thing last night I was thinking this was going to be the last time I watched it. The way they kept stopping trying to escape to have heart to hearts about the uncle's past was just so ridiculous it was painful. Then I kinda got interested in the back ground story again. And the woman getting to see her kid's picture on her iphone tugged at my heartstrings a bit. So I'll watch at least one more.

Cool

Was just rewatching the first episode On Demand...the blackout starts from somewhere in the Northeast, likely between New York and Boston...possibly right here in New England...or somewhere just off the Massachussetts/Rhode Island coast.

Has to be some kind of general energy dampening field that encompasses the Earth, otherwise SOME kind of alternate energy source would work, as some have mentioned in various posts and reviews...wind, water, even hamster power...

The little handheld/pendant devices either negate the dampening field locally or provide a power source not affected by the field.

I might also surmise that there are no more thunderstorms on this future Earth since electrical activity has been impeded.

I still feel the show owes more to "The Postman" than "Hunger Games"...
