    Did anyone in the UK watch the first episode on Saturday night? or have you seen it in the US?
    they're comparing it to Homeland. I must admit I was not expecting much but it was quite good and kept me engaged for an hour anyway.

    If this is the show I think it is it will only be on for one season. I don't want to put any spoilers on here though.

    yeah as far as I know they've not ruled out a second series but it was billed as a "limited run" which suggests that it was designed with one series in mind but if popular enough...

    like sherlock? :p

    I think we've come to discover that nothing *really* prevents a second series if there's money to be made

    I have watched it and I really enjoyed it. I can't see how it can go past one season, unless they are going to have a hostage scenario every season. I guess 24 managed year after year, so who knows.
