    This starts in the states on the 11th Jan, definately going to check it out as it looks interesting - with a Justified vibe to it. Remains to be seen what the acting is like though as I don't recognise any of the cast.

    Was about to say wow this show must be extreme if it beats Spartacus in that regard. :)

    Will hopefully find time to catch up with this tonight.

    I never got into Spartacus. Quit (out of boredom) after the first episode :).

    Just watched Episode 1 of this, really enjoyed it, quite different from what I've personally seen.

    3 episode in and im hooked! Right from the bar scene from episode 1, i was in. I'm warming more to 'Lucas Hood', he gets the job done. You just need to suspend reality for this show as
    no police office would be able to knock ten bells out of a cage fighter, break arms, fingers and get away with it.
    There is enough of a backstory to keep things ticking along at a good pace. We could also see more of the Armish girl too...:devil:

    To be brutally honest I had not heard of this show. But I am definitely going to give it a crack tonight.

    Thanks for this thread!!

    Agree 100%! From seeing him in the bar scene I was hooked and watched episode 2 & 3 straight afterwards, looking forward to the next episodes.

    Just caught the first episode and thoroughly enjoyed it. Loads of characters (likeable ones at that) introduced, decent story, well shot with plenty of scope for future development. In fact one of the better pilot episodes of any show I can remember watching. :thumbsup:

    Hopefully catch up completely tomorrow.

    I really want it to be Saturday already. Watching the trailers brings up some cool stuff that we haven't seen yet.

    Started this last night after finding this thread and watched 1&2. I think I'll watch maybe 1 or 2 more as whilst its good it's not really drawing me in as much as I'd like.

    I'd say Lucas needs to
    reign in himself a bit or I can't see him lasting as sheriff for long as his methods are too far from the law.

    I agree with the thing about emo girl as
    he asked ex her age and she said 13 so couldn't be his if he's been inside for 15 years. But when he checked her ID he said 13 my ass implying she's older

    I'm also considering becoming Amish :devil:
