    Anyone catch the premiere last night? I rarely watch network TV, but NBC's been promoting this so hard, I had to watch.

    The characters seem a bit too well-fed and groomed for folks wandering around 15 years after the lights went out. Especially the ex-Google dude. And I'm sure I've been desensitized by HBO and AMC, but the whole thing seemed a bit watered down and homogenized. The story is nothing new as it's been covered previously by The Stand among others. It was nice to see Chicago so green and peaceful :c

    I'll watch the next few episodes, but if David Schwimmer shows up as a "special guest star" I'm outta there.

    Another J.J. Abrams stinker.

    GQ models with perfect teeth, clean clothes and not really a hint of the fight for survival.

    Do they not see what Iraq and Afghanistan look like after decades of war and no power?

    Everything is wasted and dirty.

    The show may not have war at its cause, but its simple and clean.

    Shit TV at its finest.

    Downloaded and deleted.

    2 thumbs down. :coffee:

    I'm gonna see this. But I don't see how it can last longer than a season.

    Fringe has never dealt with the paranormal. Now go pop in transformers 2 and jerk off.
