it'll be interesting to follow... if they make it too complicated they will lose the audience but if they keep us just off balance enough, add a little action to spice it up it could be a winner

Yep. So far they've started to establish back stories of about 4 characters. A few more than that and It's going to get real bloated.

So, did anyone else keep up with this show? I'm watching the season finale right now.

To briefly summarize the first season: First of all, It's a slow, plodding politically charged thriller. *SPOLIERS IN WHITE* The main character accidentally stumbles upon a coded message in a national newspaper, hidden inside the daily cross-word puzzle. What exactly he discovers is slowly but surely explained throughout the entire season, but simply put, It's a massive conspiracy designed by the heads of the intelligence community to manufacture events/attacks to make money, which dates back 20+ years. That is all I'll say right now, they're watching me.

That sums up Rubicon. That finale was an enormous letdown.

Finale was a barn-burner.

I might be completely wrong, or on point.

But what I took from the pilot (yeah... I know ) was a show based on conventions/formats that we've seen with many movies and even some shows, but dragged on for however many episodes it was.

I know its a large leap to assume all of this from one episode, but how far off was I?

How many times did you think to yourself.... "I've seen this before" or "I knew that was gonna happen"?

If you tell me that I'm completely wrong, then I might watch it.

You're unequivocally wrong.

Then I might give it a shot.

Although the pilot in itself was rather conventional and formulaic, but dull and slow. But we'll see.

It was nicely shot tho.... I loved the colors and the camera work.

Naw, its cool... I might give it a go sometime. Plenty of shows that I need to watch but haven't gotten around to it.

MadMen has been at the top of my list since it debuted, but I never got around to watching it. This one seemed like a short season (dunno how many eps), so I might watch it.
