    Anyone catch this? I thought it was awesome. Has a little bit of a 24 feel to it.

    Seems like this could get very good, a great role for Spader. Added to my season pass list.

    Spader is awesome. The show looks to be pretty good, well written and fast paced.

    This is on my list. I enjoyed the pilot. I'm wondering how long before Spader turns his FBI partner into Maggie Gyllenhall from Secretary. This character seems every bit as controlling.

    This is a better role for Spader. He didnt fit in the office at all.

    Agreed. His character is more like Alan Shore from Boston Legal which I think fits him a lot better than what he did in The Office.

    I liked it. Spader was great. It left me with a lot of questions that I would like answered. I'll be recording it this season.

    NBC is probably hoping you will tune in again to get the answers to your questions.

    An order-of-magnitude improvement over what NBC had in the Monday 9:00 time slot last season...

    I'll watch it again, but IMO there were major holes in the plot of episode 1.

    1) Who schedules an important appointment at an adoption agency in the middle of the day on their first day in a new job?
    2) How do the bad guys know exactly what route the FBI is using and also be able to set up a hazmat cleanup with no one asking any questions?

    To me it seemed a little too easy. So this guy turns himself in and wants to use his daughter to catch bad guys. And, oh yeah, her husband is one of those bad guys that her dad has worked with. We've seen this before.

    It just seemed like a show that should have been on Fox. But maybe I'm just spoiled and now expect all writing to be up to Breaking Bad standards.

    Are we sure that Spader is her father? I mean we're leaning towards that, but there is no definitive answer yet. Also, unfortunately, Megan Boone is a terrible actress. The scene before she stabbed him in the neck was terrible. Horrible acting of being upset.

    You will not speak of Megan Boone in this way. I think Spader being her father is too easy. I don't think that's it.

    I liked it. We watched the Voice and couldn't find the remote, so watched it by default.
