    Some of it's a little far fetched. The killer has a seemingly endless amount of followers doing his bidding. No potential victim can be protected. If Kevin Bacon wasn't in it I probably would have not continued to watch. I like his character. He's playing the brooding, sad broken man like he did in The Woodsman. Tonight's ending was good so I will stick with it.

    I loved it! Both hours went by too quick. I like the premise and with all the nuts out there I can see this scenario going down.

    Too cliche. One part Se7en meets Silence of the Lambs meets every other movie about the down on his luck FBI agent

    I'm digging it so far. I like how there is even tension between the followers.

    I am going to give it a shot because I like Kevin Bacon, James Purefoy and serial killers. I don't have high hopes for it, however, because it's on network tv.

    Its really good, last nights show went by really fast, so I must like it. Kevin Bacon makes the show, and since he asked Howard to stop talking about his cock, he's good in my book.

    James Purefoy is awesome but that show looks shitty. Should be on cable.

    We need another Battlestar Galactica or 24...
    Starting watching Continuum on Syfy...could be ok.

    The ratings are in. After two weeks 10 million viewers and did very well in the key demographic. Only lost 400,000 viewers after the highly touted first episode. I would say it's almost a guarantee it gets another season. Touch got a second season and I think I'm the only one who watches it. Keifer Sutherland will break out in his Jack Bauer persona and say Damn it every couple of shows. The everybody in the world is connected theme is wearing thin.
