I really liked it too. I'm interested in what happens next.

I hate to see even cartoon animals die but it is only tv.

I saw about 1/2 of this weeks and have no idea what this epi has to do with it so far.

I don't get what smoking has to do with it either - I do remember something about not wasting your breath - maybe that's it? I don't know.


Gin - um, don't you smoke? lol2

this may help:

also - I suppose we have to remember it's based on a book - so it might not be transposing as well on the screen... its just the old ladies with cigarettes lol "stalking" ppl with that look of hate - violently whipping the cigarette from their mouths...like the cool kids behind the school   lol2

Okay, that is what I thought. Now...I watched a special on this show, and he and another guy said..'i hope they dont focus on why everyone left and more on the character development' ......this sounds like LOST all over again...they dont have a complete story..but have character stories well done..and in the end ..you'll find yourself disappointed

I was not disappointed by LOST..

I am thinking for the next few episodes each episode will focus mostly on one character to allow us to get to know them and like them.. that way we won't care so much about the people who disappeared..

also the premise of the show is not about people disappearing its about the lives of the people who didn't disappear... like Derek said... so I guess its like the plane crash in LOST... why the crash happened didn't really matter it what was after the crash that was important

That one woman really bugs me with her cigarette and thin eyed stare 

I don't like the stunt with the pictures.  I'd be murderous if all my pictures were taken.

This show disturbs me . I can imagine how it would be to live with the GR and I'm surprised there's not more violence. They really step over the line.

well maybe "can't stand" is a little strong

they irritate me - the cop is drinking and driving; his daughter and her friend annoy me

if I knew any of them in person I think I would constantly look at them like  36

I've stopped watching, haven't decided if I'll pick it back up or not... im pretty content watching my Buffy and X-Files on Netflix...

I wonder if they get royalties for their show being on Netflix..

I have no idea what they're doing  dunno  Planning their own "suicides by murder"? Getting ready to dress up sandbags in the deceased clothes? Nope, not a clue.



I do know that I'd be living in a constant homicidal rage with those people around.

oh I know - there would be no tolerance of these people - you mentioned that a week or two ago and I cant get that out of my mind. they'd be violently attacked all the time - and not just by thugs - by soccer moms.  hell if anyone broke into my house or stalked me and my kids - eff that...


sandbags! hmm maybe that's they were!

yeah, after the pictures were stolen I said that

every episode I watch I just get so angry (probably irrationally so considering its a TV show).

looked like sandbags to me - what else could they be? they reminded me of the fake infants they make you carry around in health class to see if you are cut out to keep a kid alive

I didn't think about sandbags... I don't think it's bodies... and they didn't pay a whole lot for it to be bodies.. but sand might be... although that would be dam heavy to carry ... what about pigs?  sheep?

This was a flashback of where they were when the departure happened and it tied some of the story lines together.  It makes more sense now.  The previews look good too.

I loved that episode. that really helped put some things together.

JJ - ya that was his real dad. looks like cop dad came into the picture when he was really little, had a baby with the mom - so the kids are step brother/sister.

agreed - the brother and sister were really weird... I think they were just trying to show us how happy and 'normal' everything was...

the saddest was the mom of the 2 kids and her husband. I cant remember her name. 

really neat about the baby... I really like this show - it can be just so weird sometimes! but I AM intrigued and want to see what happens next.



PS: did anyone notice how tight the cop's jogging pants were? leg
