    Seems intriguing to me...

    But, did the nuclear warhead sent from the 'phantom' sub actually explode in the water near D.C.?

    That makes no sense to me. Why would the 'good guys' do that?

    Well, they are repeating it tonight and I have my DVR to record it. Sunday some Hotel 666 is on ABC, looking foward to that too.

    ABC has become synonymous with the production of pure excrement.

    When Lost left ABC American Horror Story was the only show to replace it as must watch TV.

    But that was messed up!

    So it hit the water and only caused 'minimal' damage?


    First off thats very unrealistic, and it wasn't the ocean I don't think.

    Just kind of strange IMO...

    I checked it out. I've almost completely stopped watching TV. Again, ABC has a show where you get strung along for who knows how long. I could shoot holes in this thing all day. Yeah, the missile exploded 200 miles east of Washington. It was shown on the tactical tracking map for a second. And they, as said above, had to make a point. If you have teeth and never bite, you might as well only have gums. And they'd be wiped out in a flash.

    The island "boss" kidnapping two of the crew. The so-called island punks challenging the SEAL. The world has been dumped on by three nukes, and they are going to be dealing with some island slimeballs? Please, huh...

    I won't be watching again.

    The only thing remotely realistic is the public will be in the dark, be fed a cartload of ______, and never question authority.

    I wouldn't call it boring, but it has the strong possibility of becoming too jumbled or confused...

    It feels like CSPAN with good looking people. Too much of a chore to keep track, would be a good show for computer programmers and detailed oriented people. Me- I'm a American Horror Story kind of guy.

    A.H.S. is pretty good, somewhat gratuitously gory, but ok.

    How do you feel about the show changing the entire cast every season?

    I have no problems with them changing the cast because there is just nothing else like it on TV. The 1st season was freaking must see TV.

    I like Hotel 666 on ABC also. Creepy and Weird makes for good TV.

    They don't change the entire cast........the idea is to have new stories each season that are completely different with new characters. The actors for the most part are the same just cast in new roles.....it's just like the summer stock theatre where you have new shows each week with the same actors in new roles.

    Season one was a haunted house, this season it's an asylum (with ghosts, n a z i scientists and freaking aliens!!!!!) next season????? Very very cool.
