Would you look at that! An original TV show with high production values! Very out of character, NBC.

Now the only question is, how many episodes before it's cancelled?

    Jesus Christ that is such a heartbreaking concept. And its an amazing story. But I don't watch TV dramas. Fuck I wish this were a movie.

    Honestly, it feels like a movie, or at least a mini-series.

    I don't know how they can make that into multiple seasons.

    There's a clip from the show here

    I like everything I've seen so far, but even if I didn't, I couldn't say no to Jason Isaacs

    This does look interesting.

    I will definitely watch it.

    There are some decent looking shows on the horizon. The River, Grimm and this one.

    Some other ones I as well.

    I have to say, I have no idea where this story could go from that admittedly fascinating premise

    but I'm going to watch it anyway because the premise is amazing

    I don't watch many TV shows at all, really. Scrubs was the last one I would actually sit down and watch, either DVRed or when it came on.

    That would mean the same thing. Fall 2011 is the new season, a midseason replacement means it would start up around February of 2012.

    True enough, but it also could have meant it was to come out this month or just a little earlier.

    I can wait for it, though. Much like I've been waiting for Breaking Bad's new season.

    I would be pretty happy if they never reveal the "truth."

    Pitching this as a series is a bit strange though. It definitely seems more movie material. Something with a definite end.

    I wish it was on AMC or FX though, those are great channels.

    Yeah LoneStar was the same thing basically. An ultra high concept with an incredible pilot but then it's like "how is this a series?"

    We never had to find out with LoneStar, I doubt we will with this either.

    Maybe we'll be lucky and it'll be a short run series that doesn't drag out the story, à la Life on Mars.
