Anyone catch the pilot tonight? Needed something to watch now that GoT is on a break. Pretty interesting to start. Many different ways the show can go from here.

Yeah, is this a reboot? It seems to be too much thinking for people these days lol.

I hope it develops well. Some of the characters, even after one show, are pretty interesting. I'm curious what Tyler's motives are as to why she went to that stupid house (I don't remember her name off the top of my head).

It's not a reboot but it is based on a book of the same name.

It was alright. Hoping we actually get a few answers in this show and not just a crapload of questions.

I'm gonna wait to hear about this one. If it's the same crap from the same guy with ten thousand questions for the sake of questions, I won't even bother. It gets to the point where mystery for the sake of mystery is obnoxious.

I'd also like to point out that most of the characters are pretty unlikeable at this point. The main character who shoots dogs, the girl who seems overly depressed and snarky, the girl who slept with her best friends' crush right in front of her, the wife who left her family for a cult, etc.

Wow, what a terrible portrayal of one episode. Is that really what you took from it or did you just not like it and decided that was the quickest way to say it? That is a serious question.

Yeah, he doesnt like the main character because he shoots dogs......Did it not occur that those dogs at the end were wild, crazed dogs, and not the pets that they once were? Wasnt that the whole point of having that close the episode, to show that things are not like they used to be, and even more things will be changing?

Overly depressed girl. Hmmm, lets see..your mother leaves you to go join a cult, your brother leaves to join a different cult(?), and who knows what else could have affected her from the disapperance. Yep, she should be cheerful and happy.

That's not my portrayal of an episode, it's just that pretty much all of the characters are depressing and/or unlikeable so far, but of course that's just my opinion. They also aren't very charismatic, at least with the characters on Lost they were terrible people but they were fun, terrible people. These are boring, terrible people. Maybe they show some more redeeming qualities maybe they don't, at least the story seems pretty interesting so far even if the people in it aren't.

LOL WTF... did you just catch the last 5 minutes of the episode or something? I mean, judging by the rest of your post, I would think not but you obviously saw the guy wasn't a dog killer in every sense the word. He killed the wild dogs that were basically rabid, wild animals.

If you didn't like it, you didn't like it but this is pretty ridiculous

The entire episode revolved around a very depressing time. Do you expect them to be doing backflips and running around full of energy during a time like that??
