Watched the pilot of this show tonight. Thought it was very good. Chock-a-block of all the high-quality CGI effects, location sets and imaginative ideas that were so spoiled with these days..... Some excellent performances too, particularly from Evan Rachel Wood (Delores Abernathy) , James Marsden, Thandi Newton and Anthony Hopkins (who always gives a great performance). Only weak link in the cast was Simon Quarterman as (Lee Sizemore) Looking forward to the next episode Anyone else started to watch this show... ? What did you think....?
