    Wasn't planning on watching this because not a fan of Stephen King's stuff (or that genre) but it kept my interest after Eureka. I like the characters (except for the sheriff) and just realized that was Nicholas Campbell playing the older guy, so I'll stick around for a few more eps. But seeing the trailer after the show for next few eps looks like it's going to turn more horror so we'll have to see.

    However, if you want to see a better version of someone affecting the weather with their emotions, watch X-Files episode 'Rain King'. (6th season I think)

    Haha, I kept thinking of that episode while watching the show!

    Decent premiere episode. I will watch a few more, and see where this show goes.

    I thought it was really good, but then again I'm one of the few people that liked "Happy Town" too. I think this show will flow nicely once the main actors grow into their characters a bit. It takes a few episodes for every good show.

    i watched the first eps. and yes, it is kinda eureka just with a paranormal bent instead of science gone awry

    there is a bit of a 'secret story' undercurrent

    I think the greatest limitation for hte show is....just how many 'muted paranormals' can there REALLY be in a town? That i think is the show's greatest limit. just how long this little town can go on realistically before it just gets boring if htey get caught in the formula of 'something goes wrong, who's having a bad day, fix it'

    Happy Town was like that but it was doomed before it started.

    It's funny how people like different things. I thought it would be more morbid, and I'm happy it wasn't.

    if it was too morbid and spooky I wouldn't be watching.

    i refused to even try happy town and that other one last year that promised someone would die each week simply because they were touted as being morbid and scary and as gory as tv would allow.

    I don't find the 'gory horror porn' type of movies interesting to say the least. Stuff like Saw or others like that. I do like the quirky mystery stuff. Like eureka and, at least in its first episode, Haven.

    we'll see if it stays more lighthearted or if it takes a Christine turn and gets spooky and 'disturbing'.

    it goes that way i'll just record 1 hour friday nights and not two

    Interesting first episode. It has the same strange town thing going on that Eureka. I'll be watching the next few episodes to see them get their real beat on (the the premiere beat).

    I watched the pilot yesterday. I'm not sure if I like or not, but I'll defiantly watch again next week. Why? Because the lead actress is beautiful... she for sure grabbed me.

    I also find the cast better then Warehouse 13.

    This show really did seem like a cross between Warehouse 13, Eureka, and Sanctuary... all 3 bottled into one.

    She wasn't exactly ugly but I don't know if I would use the word gorgeous. The first time I thought it was dull. But rewatched the pilot this afternoon and it wasn't so bad. I'd probably continue trying it.

    I would. and I don't throw that word around often. She had a really "natural" essence about her. Just gorgeous.

    Most people would call Megan Fox gorgeous. I call that a body with plastic fillings.

    Oh well, I'll be watching next week

    Emily Rose, while tempting (incredibly tempting), won't get me to watch the show until I'm assured there's more than one season coming. I'd hate to get into a new show, enjoy the heck out of it, then get let down by the lack of progress over thirteen episodes or something.

    Indeed. That's my problem with most shows. I really want to watch Fringe, but even though it's at 3 seasons now... I like a "large" show. Like Rescue me. If it's at 6 seasons... and going on 7... I might watch that.

    Stargate is my max Where there are so many episodes, it'll take me months to watch and finish... I love that.
