Television directors are often seen as dime-a-dozen, since they work within a pre-determinded style and tone and have little input into the performances or characters. But Alex Graves is not dime-a-dozen - he is not only the best director working in television, he is, I believe, one of Hollywood's best kept secrets. In addition to his well-known Pilots for Journeymen, The Nine and Fringe, he also directed countless episodes of The West Wing. His work is always distinctive from his that of his peers, with extensive use of uncut masters and dynamic set-ups as well as interesting tonal deviations. His "King Corn" from The West Wing is one of the best-directed hourlongs I've ever seen. The concept sounds interesting and with Graves involved I'm sure this will kick a lot of ass.

...on about 3, 4 years back... called Jericho? Wasn't it pretty lame? (To avoid being irradiated by nuclear fallout, just stay in your house with towels shoved under the front door until it rains)

for The Nine and of course Journeyman were pretty good. Thinking about...you can't even blame Graves for Fringe. It was a good directors job. The script was weak.

you mean, not the guy who got fired from "Heroes"?

This will probably be something I start to watch and then it gets shit canned 13 episodes in. On that note, can't wait to check it out.

As in awful, pure trash. The whole series is a bowl winder.

The biggest waste of 10 million dollars ever. It looked cheaper than the average episode of 24, and had the lamest excuse for a car chase I've ever seen.

was pretty cool, the rest not so much....but I've bought into the show for now and look forward to at least the pilot of Day One - holding on to the usual massive load of skepticism until a season is in the can.

was probably one of the weaker episodes (script/content-wise). I barely finished the second hour the first time I watched it. Thankfully, since then it has been consistently getting better and better. As for this Day One... yea, I smell a 13-episode DVD coming out about 3 months after this gets canned. Maybe a 5 episode DVD if it's REALLY good, 'cuz, you know... the better a show is, the faster it gets canceled. However mediocre shows will go on for-FUCKING-EVER.
