    Re: Persons Unknown

    I knew it was Joe from the beginning. The way he didn't answer any questions about his background was a give away. He also did not have any flashbacks yet. You figure they wouldn't go to the trouble of showing fake flashbacks, so we knew it wasn't Janet, Charlie and Tori. Also likely wasn't the army guy because he did dumb stuff like test out the stun field by touching it with his hand.

    Yeah, but not all of them have had flashbacks - car salesman guy (I thought it was him), crazy lady, army guy.

    I wonder were Tori is? Her father spoke of a charade, but then also said "you took my little girl how else can you hurt me?"

    Re: Persons Unknown

    This week's episode is a good example what is wrong with this series: inconsistent writing and over use of a newly introduced plot device. You would think Joe, being hand picked for such a mission would be screened to be emotionally strong enough to think with his head instead of his dick. We are led to believe that he is quite willing to jeopardize the "mission" and his future in order to save some girl he has fallen for overnight? Also, in one scene we see him getting quite easily beaten by Erica and later we have him going commando with the Chinese guy. So is his hand to hand combat training useless against street style fighting? Since Joe was revealed to the mole last week, do we have to have him running to handlers every 5 minutes now to drive the point home? Talk about over use of a plot device, Joe spends more time in the control room than with the other kidnapped victims. If anybody was monitoring this mission, he would have been yanked seconds after showing signs of breakdown. The whole story/plot was very contrived and illogical from the start and getting more and more ridiculus with each episode, which is the down fall of the series. My expectations for the series has been going down every week along with my interest, and at this rate, I probably won't even care how it will all end.

    I'm losing interesting in this show too. However because it's only 13 weeks total and I've already invested multiple weeks, I'll see it through. However, I now DVR it and fast forward through everything except Joe's scenes. I can't stand the new person they brought in..Erika. I don't like her character at all. I miss Tori.

    Also, note that it's moving to Saturdays. There won't be a show this Saturday though. Shows start again on July 17.

    Here's hoping NBC at least lets it run on Saturdays. It's kind of nice having a new show to watch on Saturdays again. The last Saturday network show I watched was Eli Stone and that didn't turn out well.

    I agree, there's been a few times, with different shows (and networks) that I've read "oh hey they're burning off the final Eastwick episodes" only to find that they've been replaced with something else. Simply because this was a limited run, I want to know!

    I'm still watching. Not great, but definitely entertaining. I think there are five or six episodes remaining.
