Watched the first episode and some aspect of it hooked me. With a few scenes characters seemed well developed, I guess as a result of good writing. Nothing ground breaking here, smart, smug rich kid as prime suspect, looks like a lot of cat and mouse moves, but from the previews it appears there is a host of other suspects. I'm in.

Side note as this is an Hd forum, I felt the picture's image felt flat. I have no idea what method they are using but I did not care for the look. In some ways almost felt SD like.

I watched the first episode and won't be returning for any others. I didn't realize it was a serialized series, but it wasn't a compelling show to me in any way.

I enjoyed it. Of course they had me at Bochco.

Big fan of the first season of this idea when Bochco did it back in the 90's with Murder One, so I'll be watching this even though it seems like it has safer casting and isn't aiming as high.

Murder One was ahead of it's time and had an excellent and unconventional lead character but it's only now that viewers and networks have caught up.

Yeah, first season of M-1 was very good. Then the network suits neutered it into a shell of itself in the second season to pander for ratings. Did the exact same thing with another outstanding and unconventional show, 'Boomtown'. Everybody's kind of forgotten about that one, but the first season was some of the best TV I've ever seen. Looked at the same crime from the viewpoint of different characters. Neal McDonough led a terrific cast that included Donnie Wahlberg and Mykelti Williamson.

Anybody still watching? I didn't realize it was a serial either, but that's fine with me. I like Kathleen Robertson, I remember her from Tin Man as DG's older sister Azkadellia.

Anyway, for anybody who watched tonight, who is the actress that played Hannah? The one who came in and talked about getting raped by Eric Blunt when she worked for him. She looks so familiar, but I just couldn't place her? What else has she been in?

I finally found it, Cameron Richardson and looking at her stuff on imdb, I finally realized where I remember her from, it was an old House episode, where she played the super model, it was an interesting case with quite the twist. LOL

I'm watching it. For some reason it seems to be missing something that "Murder One" had, maybe the presence of a Daniel Benzali. James Cromwell is certainly very good, and since we really haven't seen much of him yet it just might get better.

The San Francisco settings are certainly a plus. Robertson was very good in "Boss" which aired on Starz a few years back.

I'm watching it also, but the low ratings have me a bit worried. The overall cast is very good, and Kathleen Robertson has always been one of my favorites.

Anybody still watching? I like this show, I actually like it as much as 'The Killing', I'm just a sucker for good serialized shows, like a big long movie. I guess it's more main stream than 'The Killing', I like all the leads and the chemistry seems good. This is probably the last season, so they better wrap it up though, it better not be one of those Killing season #1 finishes.

We watch weekly. There was a giant clue in this week's show as to who the murderer really is....

In space, no one can hear you scream . . .

I think it's the wife of the pilot, not sure what it was but something she said while on the stand, maybe something to do with the alarm making noise.

Well, the "shocking ending" (as advertised by TNT) didn't shock me at all. Since that was the season finale, I'll miss my weekly Kathleen Robertson fix.
