I thought the raid scene was very good - to see more of the "followers" come out of the woodwork was really well done. Also, now that Emma has abandoned the two guys - I think Jake might turn if the other guy dies. I could see him going to the FBI because of Emma's betrayal.
The part with the wife and her follower was boring.
For me, Kevin Bacon's acting & charisma are what elevate this show above your standard tv fare. Then Purefoy is like the icing on top.
This show is losing me fast. Great acting and all, but I'm getting sick and tired of so many cult members coming out of the woodwork and the contrived coincidences and how the main villain has so much control over so many people from inside a dang jail cell. It's getting ridiculous.
God, I freaking HATE Fox! For the umpeenth time, they've changed how they make episodes of their series available. Now they're not making new episodes available until 8 days after their air....unless, of course, I want to pay for Hulu+. No thanks, jerks. I already pay my cable company for access to Fox. I'm so annoyed. I am never home on Monday night and I can't afford DVR, so if I can't get it online of OnDemand, I don't watch. This just means I'll have to find the episode online some other way. Boo. :down
The show really had potential, but they have exhausted me too. I'm done with the over the top coincidences, failed attempts, and over the top rescues by the bad guys. I'm done. I can't take anymore. In fact, I don't care about them anymore. I may come by this thread to see how it all turns out in the finale. I wouldn't be surprised if this guy escapes again, has plastic surgery, assumes a new identify, runs for President, gets elected and turns everyone into walking dead zombies! I'm not kidding! lol
DVR service isn't cheap for me. I don't have one. Still use my VCR if I have to absolutely see something. :p
This show isn't losing me. I thought the raid scene was well done and not non-sensical. I mean we knew that Emma had contacted someone called Roderick and was told to stay put. We are not meant to know the reach of Joe and his followers. Plus, we also can't know how many recruits his main followers have in play. That's the suspense. Joe probably has his main people who he directs. Then those people, like Emma and Roderick, control other followers in executing the plan.
I do not care for the lawyer. She is beyond weak. However, I do believe that our law allows criminals to have private conversations with their legal counsel. So Joe being able to be in the same room as her isn't that far-fetched.
