    Graceland

    I know there are a couple of posts in the "Summer Shows" thread because Comcast had the Graceland pilot previewed in advance ... but the Premier was tonight.

    I did watch it and I thought it was good ... not great, but good. I need to give it more than one episode to give it a fair chance. Did anyone else watch?

    One complaint I have is when I can't understand the dialogue because it's swallowed a little by the actor.

    I thought exactly as you did, echo226. The pilot started out kind of so-so, but it did consistently improve as it went along. The ending gave us some food for thought, and I'm looking forward to seeing how the story develops. Need some time to get to know the characters. It's a good combination with Burn Notice, a show I never miss.

    I got sucked in too. Watched Burn Notice then started watching this show. Before I knew it half the episode was over so I watched the entire show. Not sure if I want to devote a summer staying inside to watch but I will my dvr is willing to do the job.

    I liked the show, the main character, and story lines, so I will definitely be watching during the summer.

    I liked the show as well. It's going to be interesting to find out who gave those Russians the keys to the safe house.

    Re: Graceland

    For some reason Agent Briggs (Daniel Sunjata) character reminded me of Scott Caan on Hawaii Five O.

    I need to get to know the characters a little better too. The customs guy was funny, and I do like "Johny" as well.

    Dome of the pranks and antics are a little cliche' but at this juncture they are still trying to introduce us to the individuals, the group and some storylines all in one bite so I think that will all improve.

    I thought it was a decent premiere. I enjoyed parts and am hoping that as the characters flesh out it'll get even better! I love new summer shows so I hope this is a keeper!

    Ao I guess I'll have to watch S1 (on my DVR). Is it worth my time?
