OK...I've just seen the first ep of this on tape(it's being shown on a daily basis in the UK this week but due to social commitments I'm having to play catch up)

1. Best characterisation I've seen outside scifi

2. The jihadis portrayed here are the first group of TV characters that actually lessened my faith in humanity as a whole. Particularly that Chechen-US guy. What the f-k was his motivation for hooking up with the jihadis? He feels he needs to prove his manhood through mass murder? Puh-lease! I want him to get blown up by his own bomb in the middle of nowhere! What a sicko!

3. The Egyptian doctor was probably the most interesting character of the bunch.

4. Interesting that the bad guys won round 1 with some decent fakes. Looking forward to whenever I catch part two.

I was hoping you'd have seen it...

as usual for this type of thing, I thought it was truly dreadful. But since I stopped watching halfway through the first ep (despite Bernard Hill, one of my favourite actors) I don't think it's fair for me to comment. What I saw of the Egyptian doctor was interesting though.

Probably my biggest problem was that I'd just been watching Holby City. I had already had my fill of women in senior positions "out-testosteroning" the men.

I had high hopes for The Grid, but after watching the premiere, I had no desire to continue watching. Not sure exactly what it was, but it just didn't click for me.

I was so mad when they killed of my favorite person in the show! Grr!

Yeah I know, It should have been the other one that was there instead.

As for The Grid... well it's better then most new shows, so I wouldn't mind getting a real show of it.

Now seen the other two eps:

1. After getting sent through the crap-pipe in ep 2, it was a bummer to have Raza killed when trying to talk the jihadi kids out of their mission - a gamble that didn't pay off!:(

2. I was dissapointed in the Egyptian doctor getting suckered into hooking up with the jihadis again.

3. OK, so they make Acton out to be a 24-style mole but he doesn't get taken to the cleaners - not much point in leaving him standing unless they do a follow up.

4. I don't suppose anyone knows of a US-based board for this show, have swung by the beeb board for a bit and found more left wing moaners than are healthy :( - might try my luck with Delphi!
