I gave up on it after a couple of episodes. The show is very generic, and the two lead actors are TERRIBLE.

Gave up after an episode and a half. Just found it lacked personality and was mostly boring.

I like JJ, but the leads are terribly bad. Disappointed.

Many shows suck in the first season IMHO, but if they can survive they can often find their way and improve. Maybe it will be the case with this one. However, I've heard the ratings are bad so it may not survive.

The lead actress, especially. She's just atrocious.

And the lead actor has all the charisma and personality of an underwear model. Oh wait, he was an underwear model!

Neither of them are even remotely believable as spies.

Either way, the show is NOT coming back next year. How much longer it's on this year is anyones guess.

I gave up after the pilot. JJ is all hype. He left Lost after season one and he's had practically ZERO input on Fringe. He didn't do much on Cloverfield either.

He's no different than any other Executive Producer in that regard. He gets the projects up and running, then leaves them in the hands of people he's selected to do the day-to-day show-running.

You think Jerry Bruckheimer ever shows up on the set of any of the dozens of TV shows he produces?

That's not exactly true. It is for Jerry. But Jerry doesn't have nearly the hype behind his name as JJ.

And Canceled. As much as I didn't like the show, I figure I should go ahead and say that, yeah. I was working on it. I came on a week after my last post here. Still not a great show. But they were in plans to really re-tool the thing.
