    As I was watching Friday night's episode it occurred to me that there were probably other folks here on GW who were watching the show. I've got to go back and catch up on all the pages on conversation, but I had to at least drop in and post (to subscribe) and point out that I thought this week's ep was probably one of the better ones. It seemed to answer some questions (finally) and start asking some incredibly intriguing ones.

    The whole grey eye thing has me swimming. All this time I was thinking…

    I’ve been thinking about this a lot, lately. It made me wonder…are we going to follow the CDC folks as they work on another possible outbreak next season or do we stay with Arctic Biosystems (if they make it through all this or… (spoilered for most recent episode)

    Spoiler:

    Will we now be following Ilaria Corporation? Because there’s no way (I can see) that this “in a bubble” thing works for more than one season – especially not with the rapid progression of storytelling.

    Spoiler:

    And even more so now that they’ve slept together. I mean, he clearly wanted to address potential emotional issues and she blew it off thinking he either wanted or expected that but she missed a valuable opportunity to have an adult moment. Just proof positive that she’s too young and it wouldn’t have worked with Alan anyway.


    The almost-catty relationship between Julia and Sarah is tired, too, IMHO. They’re really no competition for one another especially considering it’s now clear… (spoilered for most recent episode)

    Spoiler:

    That Julia’s feelings run much deeper for Peter than they do for Alan thanks to her hallucinations.

And, I can't see how they can stretch this series out very long while isolated at the research facility unless they manage to break containment and go global. The opening theme song is a little weird and seems out of character for the tone of the show.

    This is actually one of my biggest gripes about the show. I love sci-fi but, for me, it’s way more fun if the science is at least accurate enough that you’re not thrown out of the story line. I mean, hell, I’ve got college bio for non-majors (even if my dad is an immune-parasitologist) and even I cringe at some of the boneheadedly stupid science stuff.

    Honestly, I feel like I do the same thing. I feel like I’ve missed a lot because I don’t find the show terribly gripping and am, therefore, more likely to walk into the kitchen when we’re not on commercial break or play Temple Run on my phone while I’m supposed to be paying attention to what’s happening and why. So if I ask a stupid question, a little slack, please.

    This is a side-note unrelated to the show. But I’m a film student and am in the process of developing a science fiction series for television. One of the perks of my classes was that they sent our pilot scripts to pro Hollywood readers. My show is heavy on science (physics, specifically) and on the politics of what is happening in the world at the time (more, cerebral, if you will). The top comment I got back was about needing a romantic interest for the main character (who appears at 70 years old for just that episode). We couldn’t even get him back to the present time and 40 years old to start plotting who might be the UST person for him. C’mon!!! So frustrating.

    Thank goodness – I thought it was just me! I find this show difficult to follow because there are always so many more questions raised than are answered. I might care more about the answers to the new questions if the old ones are getting resolved…

    Looks like channel 5 has given up on this in the UK. It's been moved from 10pm to midnight tonight and it looks like it's not on next week.

    Edit.
    It was just announced, it returns later in the year on 5*, not good.

    It must be doing really badly if it's being moved to 5*. That's Channel 5's death channel.

    Not surprise, it was hardly advertise, and then stick it on at 10, and then no promotion whatsoever. Only they got something unique plan for the silver eyes people and not just some seen all before plot.

    Anyone standing next to Billy Campbell will look small, the guy is 1,92m tall (Jeri Ryan is 1,73m).

    The last episode just felt like the writers manufacturing crisis to avoid answering our questions or revealing any of the details of the plot.

    Hopefully we will get more answers now that alliances have shifted around a bit.

    The last episode was my favourite the Grey eyes are sweet. And Dr. Hitaki is a cool character. Im loving the friday night at 10 pm on Showcase also perfect time for me. They even had this show advertised on my NHL 14 PS3 game it was on all the boards pretty cool cause i never seen that before. And gotta love Jeri Ryan.

    The last episode(8) was my favorite so far as well. I actually didn't dislike any of the characters in the episode(not even Sara, who I've really disliked for a while). I love Hatake, I think he's a cool character too. I liked Jeri Ryan as Constance. I'm almost kind of
    Spoiler:
    sad that Hatake cut off her head.
    I also like everything that's been going on with Julia, Balleseros and Daniel.
