Really, it's fun to speculate, but to have someone ruin it would be no fun at all.

Hmm, where I have I seen this story line before? Big scary semi-translucent monster attacks people in the Jungle? I know where I saw this! It was called predator and it was really cool about 20 years ago. However, the HD picture quality was outstanding even if the story was ridiculous.

If it is in HD I will watch it! Give me two politicians debating of who is the biggest liar in DD and 720p and I will watch it! I will take anything in HD over SD any day.

The over night rating are in:

The first round of the "CSI: NY" vs. "Law & Order" battle went to CBS Wednesday night, although not by a knockout. Elsewhere, "Lost" opened big for ABC.

CBS led the night with a 10.0 rating/16 share, beating NBC's 9.4/15. ABC was a solid third at 7.9/13. There was a pretty steep dropoff to fourth-place FOX, 3.4/5. The WB averaged 3.1/5 and UPN 2.3/4.



The Eye network also led among adults 18-49 with a 5.4 rating. ABC and NBC tied for second at 4.7. FOX's 2.4 was good for fourth, beating The WB, 2.3, and UPN, 1.4.

ABC's new drama "Lost" premiered to a surprisingly strong 11.6/19, dominating the 8 p.m. hour. A prime-time "Dr. Phil" special on CBS was second at 7.9/13, while NBC's "Hawaii" took third. The season premiere of "Smallville," 3.5/6, put The WB in fourth. "That '70s Show" and "Quintuplets" averaged 3.3/6 for FOX. "America's Next Top Model" opened its season on UPN with a 2.7/5.

The first of two hours of "Law & Order," 12.2/19, gave NBC the lead at 9 p.m. "Dr. Phil" improved to 10.1/16 for CBS. ABC dropped to third with the return of "The Bachelor," 6.2/9. Two episodes of "The Bernie Mac Show" moved FOX up to fourth. "The Mountain" debuted to a 2.6/4 on The WB, while UPN's "Veronica Mars" managed only a 1.8/3 in its premiere.

At 10 p.m., the premiere of "CSI: NY" averaged 12.1/20 for CBS, beating NBC's second "Law & Order," 10.7/17. "The Bachelor" came in at 5.8/10 for ABC

This story line reminded me of "Land of the Lost". Remember that show? I'm waiting for the sleestacks to start coming out of the woodwork. I can't believe that was close to 30 years ago. I'm getting old.

It sounds like those of you from California complaining about the show being in SD should be mad at your local affiliate and not ABC.

Must be a SoCal thing, 'cause up here in the SF bay area it was perfect. Some of the best images I've seen in HD.

I heard J.J. Abrams on the radio yesterday morning (kevin and bean show) and, while i didn't pick up the details, I thought that he said something about the show only having a couple of episodes done and that they would then have a long break, picking it back up in January or something. Anyone know anything about this??

While I'm typing, i might as well add that I thought that show was really cool. PQ and SQ, as mentioned already, were outstanding.

I'm also in LA and was pissed that the HD didn't come on right away and tried their main number, which wasn't working so I called their "Breaking News Only" line and talked to them. They put me on hold for just a minute and got back and said that they'd fix it in a second. Once it switched I was very pleased, though by the time they got it on it felt like a bunch of the show was already over.

Just out of curiosity, why didn't you watch it on WJLA-DT?

Very encouraging to hear that the overnight ratings were solid for this first episode. I'm really getting tired of the cop/crime scene/reality clones. Not only is this the most original new show to come out in a while, it's absolutely made for home theater.

I'm also encouraged that ABC appears to be coming out of their 10 year funk (while NBC continues to slide into theirs).

If I heard correctly there were 48? survivors. That leaves the potential for lots of interesting story lines, besides the obvious ones.

Hehe, yeah, "at least 48" as "Jack" said to the surviving (for a few minutes) pilot. WOuldn't you think that if you were saying "at least" some number, you'd say "at least 25" or "at least 50"... Not "at least 48"?

Unless they'd had some sort of count that we didn't see them doing. Would make sense to do, especially with something rattling around in the forest, you might want to count your numbers before sunset and make sure everyone's still there the next morning, which is when Kate, Jack and Charlie set off for the cockpit section.

And what about the dog ... from the plane or is someone living out in the jungle that has a dog?

The writers have a good thing going here ...

I *thought* I heard the little black kid ask his dad where "xyz" was....and I assumed he meant the dog.



At least the little guy knew how to spell BODIES though......

He was probably talking about Alias.

Sure did. A few months ago his casting in the Lost pilot started rumors that he might be taken out of Alias to be a regular on Lost. Obviously turned out to be nothing more than a cameo appearance. He certainly ain't gonna be on this show again.

I wonder if the 48 was before or after the guy met his fate in the jet engine. I have a feeling a few more will get picked off before long. At least they've left themselves lots of potential victims.

I think the show will really revolve around a "select few", say, those right here for instance . It will be interesting to see what they do with all the others. Just keep them around as "expendables" for the forest monsters like they do in the Star Trek shows perhaps?

Okay, so I didn't want to know what the freakin' mystery animal was...but there are spoilers all in this thread!! After reading the first page, I realized I better not read anymore and go straight to posting.

I really enjoyed the show last night. The visuals were amazing and the suspense pretty good. I was impressed with the lady who played "Kate". And if this has already been mentioned then I apologize...I'm not reading the other posts for the reasons I already stated...but IMDB mentioned that this was the most expensive pilot ever filmed - more than $5 million!

Thanks!
Cory

I hope they develop some of the other characters also instead of just focusing on 14 characters and the rest are just monster fodder.
