    Persons Unknown

    This show airs on Monday nights at 10pm on NBC.


    Did anyone catch the premiere last night?

    It was kind of creepy. I'm not sure what direction the show is going to go in.

    Didn't see it but it sounded very "Prisoner" like as well as the movie series "The Cube"

    i started to watch (maybe saw the first 20 min. of it)

    but fell asleep...

    from the few minutes i've seen, it seemed like a bad recreation of SAW 3

    maybe it got better

    I watched it and thought it was pretty decent, better than I thought it was going to be.
    I thought the premise sounded interesting but was fairly confident the execution would be a complete mess, so I was quite pleasantly surprised when, imo, it wasn't.
    I'll definitely give it at least another week.

    I thought I would check it out being that it was written by the same guy that wrote "Ususal Suspects". I expect to be gradually wheeled in, and then be shocked by a kick ass surprise ending...but perhaps I'm going down the wrong path.

    I liked it. It didn't knock my socks off, but it may me wonder about some things, develop a theory, and look for clues...I'm in for 13 weeks. At least it has a beginning, a middle and end already written so that I don't have to worry about meandering plot lines just to fill some time.

    Plus I've also heard that NBC already bought all 13 episodes, so maybe they won't just stop showing it.
    I only watched the first 30 minutes, but I think I like it better than Happy Town.

    I haven't seen it yet, but I loved "Prisoner," the original, not the remake, and I also enjoyed "The Cube," especially the first one. So, I think I'll check this out online.

    I loved it. I'm very intrigued to find out who took them and why. I'm glad to hear that NBC will air all 13 episodes. I want to see this to fruition.

    I enjoyed it and will definitley commit to 13 episodes. With how obsessed society (including me lol) gets with reality tv I can see some crazy person making their own dark and twisty Big Brother.

    I was highly intrigued by it. I'll have to give it another go before I commit one way or another.
    While it may remined me a bit of The Cube, I'm hoping it's not too close to the movie! Otherwise I'll be very frustrated!
