boring it's not getting good reviews over here. Bad dialogue, no chemistry between the two leads, predictable.

Wait until its 10 episodes in and then pass your judgements, doing it on the first pilot when the actors and writers havent got into the rythem yet is a bad idea.
I disagree. You can generally tell pretty quickly from the pilot how interesting and original a new show is going to be. Hence Mad Men, Breaking Bad etc have survived and won Emmys - speciality networks like AMC and HBO are kicking the traditional networks' butts.

yup ,

the lost pilot had me hooked straight away , same goes for the walking dead and game of thrones.

I don't know how much Spielberg actually had to do with this dross but if this and falling skies are anything to go by he should stick to films.......

....actually , if the last Raiders film was anything to go by he should he should retire and drag George " i ruined my own creation" Lucas with him.

That last Indiana Jones movie was pretty shocking., but it largely had the feel of something like this:

Steven: George, I'm heading off for the weekend - don't touch the movie...
George: Ok, have a nice trip...

... Time pases ...

Steven: George, I thought I told you not to touch the movie?
George: Oh, I thought you said to put the finishing touches to it...
Steven: Oh no, let's have a look at what you've done...

... Time passes ...

Steven: Gah! A monkey car chase! Poorly animated aliens at the end!
George: Erm...
Steven: <sobs uncontrollably>
