    I'll give it a shot since it has Robert Patrick in it.

    I missed the first five minutes. It must have been a crucial five minutes because I was extremely confused why certain characters behaved the way they did.

    I watched it but I find it difficult to get over the fact that the navy would just send a fast attack sub to the OTHER side of the island, deploy a seal team that would hike to the bay side, swim out to the Sub w/ C4, assault the NATO compound and blow up the sub at the same time...That's what I would do. A sub in a bay is blind and deaf and the nato equipment is for air...they are blind to the water on the far side of the island..

    I was thinking of watching it, but it's fallen through the cracks for me. That and 6^3 Park Avenue. I have Vegas DVRed and I'm sticking with The Neighbors.

    The last really good series Andre Braugher was in was Homicide, and that ended over a decade ago. I hope this works out for him because he is a hell of an actor.

    I imagine that this has occurred to the writers as well, and will be the basis for a future episode.

    Well, the pilot was available online for the past couple of weeks. We'll see how the ratings go next week before we declare it a bomb.

    I was very skeptical after the first 10-15 minutes.......goofing around on the sub and shit with the split tails. But after that it got a lot better. I kinds like the rogue submarine story line.

    Doesn't surprise me. I've actually watched most of the episodes... I keep them on my DVR as "background noise" for when I'm working on the computer... but the show really isn't that good.

    I didn't dislike the show, watched every episode, but I also won't weep for its cancellation.

    Same here...it's better than nothing...and nearly all CBS comedies...but it's not a show I will miss...Like Journeyman! Save Journeyman!
    And I totally called the Latino chick being the CIA mole...she was too buddy buddy with the senior officers...

    Reed Diamond was on Revolution this week. And I was like "I wish Journeyman was still with us."

    I really had high hopes for this series. Great cast, interesting premise... story that absolutly sucks. The writers really killed this show, the story jumped all over the place and was impossible to follow. Hopefully Andre Braugher can get another show. He was great as the captain.

    Bring on Jericho season 3

    Agreed. The writers really did kill this show. It had promise, and seemed to have a tight first ep. It suffered from overdose of filler, like most shows lately.
