Actually was decent. I thought Caviezel's character "Jack Bauered" that detective, yet they were later talking together? Guess "I need to watch this again." My only nitpick is Emerson seemed to be channeling BL...

"I knew you'd say that"...*BLAM!*

Yes. Then you'll hear him ask the detective "Are you wearing your vest" before shooting him . . .

Seems somewhat interesting, but this one appears that it might be too episodic for me. I prefer more serialized shows, and I get the feeling that this is gonna develop into a bunch of one-and-done episodes. i.e. (1) here is this week's SS # (2) investigate (3) stop it at the end. Rinse and repeat each week. I know that this (less the SS# and secret machine) is the basic MO for most cop shows, and there is a decent audience for those episodic shows. I am just not part of that fan base.. I'll stick with this for a bit because of Michael Emerson mostly.

Nice mix of supertech, 007 action, and chasing the bad guys. Hope they'll mix in some 2-3-parters to keep things interesting. Well above the opening fare elsewhere IMO. -- John

I liked it as well. Kind of "twisty".

When I heard the radio commercial for this series... a "special" camera that lets the user see things that nobody else can see- the episode "O.B.I.T." from 1963's Outer Limits series came to mind.

Sounds interesting though, and I like Jim Caviezel too.... so I'll give it a shot.

I needed CC turned on since I found it hard to understand Caviezel character.
A little Bourne Identity feel to it which I like.

over the season I'm sure they'll deal with what happened to his girlfriend from Europe. I'm sure it'll be part of some conspiracy that ties into the arch of the show

the show started off slowly but got better as it went on
I'll watch it again next week

Saw this and still very undecided. I know suspension of belief is expected, but for God's sake make the details and technical aspects a little believable. This is not a kungfu or lords of the ring type movie here. The main character is supposed to this badass special force type. Yet he searched the home the assistant DA without wearing gloves to hide his fingerprints. The gunfight is a joke. He walks in the room, takes a gun from one of the bad guys and shot all of them in the legs. The bad guys are all pointing their guns at him, yet not one of them is able to pull off one shot. And when they are down after being shot in the legs, they just drop their guns and lie there.

At the end when the assistant DA played a tape that's was supposed to the voice of a victim but turned out to be her own voice while committing a crime. How did he switch the tape? Are we supposed to believe that the DA office is so stupid that they just play evidence without checking first?

Either we are that dumb, or Hollywood think we are that dumb.

It has potential but also was sloppy at times. I agree with David breaking into the girl's house with no gloves is the first thing I noticed as well.

Also if this machine is spitting out all these Social Security numbers, how do they pick which one to help? This needs to be fleshed out somehow as the series continues

Some good points made. I thought the first episode was a good start. I will stick around to see where it goes from here.

Liked the show. But it's a scary thought when you stop and think that this is probably what's happening as far as the data analysis goes after 9/11.

My wife said that this show is probably more fact than fiction. The data collection may not be exactly as this, but it is going on and there are warehouses full of data that the government has no idea what to do with. The underlying premise is fact. Big Brother is here.

All opinions expressed (unless otherwise noted) are the posters and NOT the posters employers. The poster in NO WAY is/will speak for his employers.

Yes, the final shots, rows of supercomputers, presumably NSA's, digesting worldwide data, might be hard to comprehend application-wise. Suspect they'll keep the data analysis techniques, gleaned through the back-door code left by the system's creator, vague. Recall some similar fictional vagueness during ABC's "Lost" when they hinted how the island could be moved by slipping in the term, "Casimir effect," implying a fictional zero-point (or dark) energy application.

Mused about the court room trick with the recorder, too. But then, with all the electronic gadgetry in use, and noticing the lead "007" character was in the court, suppose you could reason he pressed a Blue-tooth remote that switched in his miniature digitally stored recording planted earlier within the machine. With a multi-parter they would have had time to slip in a sequence for a break-in and installing the hardware. Agree the shoot-'em-up leg-wounding scene seemed a bit much. But then recalled some of the trick-shooter documentaries on Discovery, etc., where experts rattle off pistol shots--and hit targets--so quickly it sounds like a machine gun. Maybe a good time to have shot the scene for slow motion delivery. Didn't notice the lead character searched a location without gloves. But then given the expertise they're trying to project, viewers might assume he routinely wouldn't touch anything that would leave a print--or wiped it before leaving. Social-security number coding? Assumed here there's tons of data in the background for each and that's just a label for each name. -- John

I loved it. If CBS decided to pull CSI for this, there had to be a reason.

I DVR'd it and watched it yesterday, and it was perfect.

Excellent show.

I've got a son-in-law who is USMC Force Recon. He just loves shotgunning multiple tagged keywords during our phone conversations to tweak the system.

I liked it, but I hope there won't be any more dumb weapons scenes like when he fired a Vietnam era M79 grenade launcher, but it only made a tiny hole in the windshield. It looked like he was wielding a Sig 552 in the alley.

60 Minutes tonite just removed any doubt as to just how much of this show is fact. It all is as far as the data gathering and data analysis goes, at least in NYC.
