    I started watching Season 1 in a marathon binge last week & found the series' premise intriguing.
    I'd refrained from watching the series because I was afraid it'd be another one of those Christian "Left Behind" based deals.
    Turned out to be secular -not overtly Christian oriented.

    If you've watched this series please tell me what you thought about it.

    Season one sucked. Season two is actually kinda good. Damon Lindelof is the main reason for the best and worst of this series. While he asks great questions in everything he does, his answers, or lack thereof, always annoy me in the end.

    First season was fantastic. I have yet current seasons episodes on the DVR. I'm not sure what to expect as this season is all new territory. They used all the material from the book for the first season. I am hoping it holds up!!!!

    Still watching it though I find it to be depressing and I need to consult the New York Times replay on Monday so that I can have an explanation of what I watched the night before. Also Justin Theroux is annoying.

    Loved the 1st season.
    Season 2 opens with really lame graphics but paired with a great song by Iris Dement (one of my favorite Alt-Country artists).
    It's still holding my interest but I'm starting to tire of the "what happened to everybody" mystery.

    I can already tell from watching episode 6 that nothing is going to be revealed in Seasone 2.

    This is like a bloody version of John From Cincinnati (is he Jesus or a guy who thinks he's Jesus?) only about some kind of paranormal "rapture" shit.
    I like the heavy set older woman who plays "Patti" -the broad who heads that "Guilty Remnants" cult. Good actress.
    Liv Tyler is very nice to look at.
    Glad she didn't inherit her dad's tits.

    Theroux isn't much of an actor is he?

    The book by Tom Perrotta was fucking fantastic. He's a great writer.
    ....but the show looks boring as fuck.

    Lindeloff screwed me over with "Lost". I won't get fooled again.

    Shit. I forgot Lindeloff was responsible for that!
    I have a feeling that this show is gonna have the same kind of wash out.
    Every episode of this ends with someone having some kind of crisis.
