Finally watched this last night. I had noticed all the activity in this thread, so I figured it was worth a look sooner rather than later.
I'll start with the cons:
I didn't like that they gave the villain immunity just to save the lead's boyfriend, when he was responsible for the deaths of all those plane passengers.
The 24 hours they had to save the BF's life was a bit unrealistic considering all they did in that time.
When the Massive Dynamic Executive whipped out her bionic hand, I thought "what year is this supposed to be?" It was definitely a strange moment.
Speaking of Massive Dynamic, I couldn't really tell at first whether all those wall-graphics in their headquarters were supposed to be there or if they were just more "location graphics."
The lead actress is very appealing. She has a sort of "poor man's Cate Blanchett" look that I really like. They could have done more with that "strip down to your underwear" scene though.
Josh Jackson is actually pretty good in this. I loved his line in the "Spongebob" scene (a very funny scene overall) where he answered the phone with "Crazyhouse."
I was always a fan of the X-Files "Monster of the Week" premise, so if this goes that way, I'm in.
The crazy scientist is EXCELLENT. He was also great in LotR, so I hope at some point they'll have him deadpan, "Come, sing me a song."
Keeping this one on the season pass subscription.
