    Been binge watching this show. I hate it but can't stop watching it.

    Do I keep putting in the time on this show to figure out where all the people went?

    Episode 1 is good - everything in between is dribble - Finale is great brings you right back in

    I tried watching that one too. Think I made it to about episode 4 or 5 before giving up

    I dumped it after the first three episodes, just doesn't interest me. I especially don't like that the creator just flagrantly stole the concept of "Left Behind" but made it secular. Also I don't trust Damon Lindelof since he's fucked up every single project he's been involved in.

    Also the new Intro sucks balls, can't imagine why they'd replace the nice Season 1 intro.

    Seems like a modern version of what happened in the Dark Ages after the plague ravaged Europe.

    I stuck in there for season one, good but not great. I thought the first episode of season 2 last night was pretty interesting.

    Just watched the premiere, thought it was pretty good :dontknow:

    The premiere had:
    Eddie from Family Matters
    Cousin Larry from Perfect Strangers
    Sondra from 227

    Somebody in casting is a big fan of 80's sitcoms. :eek:

    The Season 1 intro was much more dramatic, this new song for Season 2 is just flat out annoying.

    Watched every episode so far. I don't think we will ever learn where the departed went - thus I'm done.

    I'll never forgive LOST for their bullshit. Everything after season 1 is dead to me.

    Creator says that where the people went isn't what the show is about. It's about the people left behind and how they handle it and not a quest to find what happened to them. To me, that's enough to give up on it. They're just going to play mind games with the viewers.
