1. The hour just seems to go to fast

Soon as your really get going it's over. Same for the walking dead.

2. I think I know what is wrong with the series.

In every episode they spend a lot of time giving the characters a reason to look back into their old lives before the lights went out. This is static. In last nights episode, it was the lack of oxygen that allowed them all to hallucinate. Once we knew they were hallucinations it was no longer a suspenseful device.

3. I still haven't seen the last half of last night's episode

I keep wanting it to get better, but it's not a great show.

The show is 10 episodes in the fall, and then another 10 in the spring, so they have like a 3-4 month break in between. Hopefully, they'll resolve some issues by episode 10.

4. We gave it a shot (4 episodes) but gave up

There were lots of small things that got in our way, but the biggest thing both my wife and I had trouble with was the persistent feeling that the best story wasn't the "present" or the flashbacks, but the skipped over time.
