That was a damn good episode, and damn good cliffhanger. :thumbsup:
To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.

Completely agree. Definitely threw the rules out the window, as Simon says.

I for one would be completely satisfied with a time-travel type of answer. Lots of people are saying the show is "too much Lost" already, but i dont feel that. Lost handles time travel and "flash forwards" way differently than this show.

However, they seem to be resisting the obvious answer (time traveling), which gives me hope for something way more **** up :).

Still watching, but that had to be the worst editing on a fight scene I have ever seen... I didn't realize how they got the guns from the guards until I rewinded it... Man, this show is spinning out of control... :thumbsdown:

I quite liked the episode. It had good plots going on, some twists and turns (I didn't see the end coming, neither Charlie's flashforward, neither the fact that the guy was actually the child from Somalia that we've seen before) and it well acted. My only problem is the execution of it, I find some scenes way too tv-ish, I don't know how to explain it better. But it annoys the hell out of me that everyone on that group was killed except for the ones who are played by regulars on the show. Also, how believable is the fact that they were exploring that tower with the guy who had just killed everyone else on their team? Anyway, I liked it. If the show survives, which is a total mystery for me if it will (even though I hope it does), I think they'll get past these problems. Overall, I would give it a strong 8.

I just watched and while it had it's downsides, I thought it was a decent episode. It's not LOST. What show is? But I think it's been decent enough the last 3 weeks. I do wonder though, since that's at least 2 FF that have been altered now why is Demitri so sure he's going to die? And did he knock up his co-worker?

Pretty fair episode, the ending was pretty awesome though, and caught me off guard. Simon continues to be my only main interest, aside of the original premise, so that's fun. These episodes seem to actually be -trying- to be good as opposed to just writing crap and dodging logical character arcs, dialogues, and a general narrative or momentum to anything.

I'm actually pretty interested to see where the shows going and almost hope it gets brought back for another season or two so I can actually see where things are going...

well glad I missed whatever happened.

I think I need to rewatch this episode. I'm pretty neutral on it and will reserve judgement until after a second watching.

This pretty much tells me that the writting is on the wall for this show.

While I may not agree with some of the points the writer makes, the numbers are telling. It's just like feeling that TPTB half start, but don't payoff. I am too frustrated with being this frustrated...

I respect your opinion Devil, but IMHO they need to try harder. I really want to like this show, but so far I just can't get into it.

They showed the can do a good show (1.11 & 1.12 IMHO), but they need to keep up that level or else it is going to suffer...
