New FOX thriller started tonight, starring Kevin Bacon.

Was pleasantly impressed. Bacon's great in the role, the writing is pretty clever, and it sets up a nice premise for the rest of the season. Very much a Se7en meets Red Dragon vibe. Really dug it.

I also liked it. Purefoy is great and Bacon plays a convincing mess of a man.

Purefoy looks an awful lot like Thomas Jane, and there are a bunch of people I recognize, from LOST, X-Men...you name it haha. Love how violent it was too, fairly shocking for a network show to just blast it out in the first episode, but I ain't complaining.

THANK YOU! I thought for sure it was Jane too! Wow that totally threw me.

I liked this quite a bit as well, the rest of the season looks to be pretty interesting. Hopefully Fox lets it run its course, every time I like a new show it seems like half the time it gets cancelled after the first season or before.

Big time bump. Anyone still watching this? This show just continues to fuckin' deliver. Tonight's episode was probably one of the most shocking, and violent, things I've seen on tv. God damn.
