    Yes, he certainly has. Fifty must be the new 30 I was so bummed when Eyes got canceled last year, so I'm hoping this show stays on.

    After one episode, I'm totally hooked. I'm disappointed that they killed off Lourdes Benedicto's character so quickly - I really like her. I love that they're having Kim Ravers' character cut her hair. By episode 3 she'll have a pixie. So far, at least, they're doing a great job with character development: these characters are all multi-dimensional and not just caricatures. I'm interested to see where they'll take this, but I wonder if revealing what actually happened in the bank will ruin it.

    Definitely the better show on ABC tonight.

    I wonder if revealing what happened in the bank will ruin it too, Critical. For anyone who missed the premiere, it's online or will be.

    Shhh! And, yes, I'm going to watch it again. I think I missed a lot of the subtleties. For instance, I may have missed some clue about what happened in the bank that made Scott Wolf's girlfriend no longer want to tell him that she's pregnant. Plus, I loved the scene when Egan Foote walked back into work.

    I watched it last night, and I was very pleasantly surprised. It's a darn good show, so far.

    Now, it's on ABC, so it'll probably get cancelled for Nanny 911 reruns or something, but I'm willing to get invested again.

    That's one thing that I missed as well.

    It's amusing watching Egan enjoy his pseudo-celebrity.

    She's killed off in "present time" but as the show goes on and reveals what happened during the hostage-taking, I'm sure we'll see a lot more of her.

    Personally I find these humane mouse traps rather ineffective. Better to lay down some glue and when you hear the critter scream you take a shovel to his head.
