The first episode is still amazing, but it never quite lives up to that potential and once the series gets into a groove, it stays there and never lets up.
I didn't catch this show in '07 when NBC originally aired and subsequently dropped it. I was able to catch it on Netflix and watched all 13 episodes. Read morePublished 12 days ago by G-Willie

Love this series. Sucks you in from the get go. Be aware that there is only 1 season, and it leaves you wanting more. That being said a great box set for lovers of the show.Published 6 months ago by mards

This was an amazing show with interesting characters, great back stories and plot. I can't believe NBC killed it before the season finished airing, though they'll spend millions... Read morePublished 8 months ago by Tom
