Welp, time to give it a go. I'm mostly in it for James Purefoy. I have no idea what this show is about, by the way.

  • I know this song. Aah, what is it?
  • Can I add this to my list of shows where I can expect somebody to die within the first few minutes of each episode? I hope so because Mad Men was really throwing me off.
  • These opening credits. I hope they're just for the pilot because they are not very attractive. Well, by the third one it's a bit better.
  • OH, HE WOULD BE A SERIAL KILLER. PUREFOY.
  • Despite Kevin Bacon's prolific and diverse career, I think I have actually only seen him in X-Men: First Class, which makes it really strange to see him as a protagonist with whom the audience is probably supposed to sympathize.
  • I know this actress who plays Sarah. How do I know her? (edit: Maggie Grace. Shannon on LOST.)
  • One of the women just took off her shoes. I am so nervous right now.
  • She had better not stab that into her eye.
  • WELL.
  • I like Weston. The adoration in his eyes!
  • (But he is a little bit to Hardy what those women are to Carroll, isn't he?)
  • Does Hardy have a thing for Sarah?
  • Yay for nonchalantly gay neighbors.
  • I just hope they make a stronger argument for why Carroll has such devoted followers besides being handsome and charismatic—which may be all there is in real life cults, but unlike real life, fiction has to sell itself as real.
  • Wow, Joey's a really nice kid.
  • Did Hardy and Claire have a thing? He did.
  • If either Sarah or her neighbors are dead, I'm going to be so sad.
  • Oh, I don't like her neighbors much anymore.
  • This is a good flashback, the way it bleeds into Sarah's.
  • Why would you take a fake loving picture where your cult leader is going to be shacking up or where you go on your cultish vacations?
  • If Sarah's eyes are carved out, I'm going to be so sad.
  • Well, now I'm sad.
  • But his surrender is his victory.
  • Wait, but what is the rest of this show about then?
  • The roar of those chains!
  • "It's important to have friends, Ryan." Somehow I don't think this show is going to be about Hardy learning the power of friendship and using that to overcome his enemies. (But I really hope it is.)
  • OH. THAT'S WHAT THE SONG IS.
  • This is pretty meta. I hope the show continues to be this meta (without going over the top with it).
  • I hope this show will be cohesive thematically and not a jumble of great ideas with little followthrough.
  • I liked that pilot.
