Well after seven episodes the show still is very weak. Bad acting, script errors, cheesy dialog. I was expecting so much of this show but a big let down so far. But i have to agree V was much worse.

What happened to the first blonde girl, Hal's girlfriend?

avatar

Poor directing and writing. Tries to build suspense in situations that common sense could have resolved. Four episodes in and I think we have to go our separate ways.

I may be the only one here, but i don't watch shows just to comment about the acting, visual effects and stuff. Actually I finished this one a time ago now. However i think it deserves some more credit, as i've seen shows with poor acting and terrible visual effects that surprisingly last more than 1 season. While of course, good series (like this or better, i should say) die after 2 seasons. I may be a simple guy but i know what i want, and it's not about the acting or the script, it's about the story! Creativity, above all. Stargate sg-1 always had terrible actors, even for the 90's, and i don't see anyone complaining. Atlantis was similar, and then stargate universe came, with great production and better cast, and guess what? Ended after season 2. If you ask me, sci-fi is going to hell these days, but at least some shows like this can still make it. Despite all of that, as i'm not just a stupid fanboy, i will admit the second half of season 5 was horrible, so thank god they finished it there. But i can't complain about the overall story (and acting). I just can't, guys, sorry!

I really liked the way this one was going. I just think the ending was rushed! Everything was done so elaborately and then suddenly the ending was there.

avatar

my God... episodes are getting worse and worse and worse. Season 4 is really a total disappointment. I hope they will make an end to the series soon, before it gets cancelled without a proper ending :( Acting seems to be going downhill, even by the regulars in the cast, conversations are so predictable they hardly have to say anything anymore at all anyway and this whole Messiah crap is really getting to me (Frank Herbert, anyone?). Seems the creators are totally out of inspiration and have started copying random other series and movies and throwing it into a mixer and then hope for a proper story coming out of it. That is definitely a fail.... they really should have brought an end to this series at season 3, instead of dragging a great series on and on into oblivion. season 1 and 2 were superb, now it's just stretching things thin :(

avatar

How is it that everyone is from or around Boston but no one has a masshole accent? That's what really bothered me about this series.

avatar

I find it getting better the more i watch it, or i appreciate it more after all this time. But, this is with keeping in mind that its not a high quality show with superb writing. Its a bit rough around the edges and you have to accept that some of the acting, writing is just not that good. If you can watch past that, then im sure that you can really appreciate this show. PS: Also it looks like the CGI budget wasnt that big in the beginning so dont expect to see much CGI until later in the series.

avatar

I liked it the first three seasons. The ending kinda sucked.

avatar

This show kind of started on the wrong feet : everyone had high expectations and it did not really deliver. But it got better throughough the first season. So, basically : not the show of the year, but not a bad show either. This is your average entertaining sci-fi show.
