Has anyone besides me watched this show?  It has to be one of the most original and imaginative series shown in recent years.

The idea is solid - a man can bring back the dead for one minute, any longer and someone else dies and uses the power to solve mysteries and crimes.  There's much more to it but that's the main basis.   At the helm is Barry Sonnifield (for the first two episodes anyway) and has a Burtonesque quality to it.  So far it hasn't become too episodic either, keeping the stories and the characters fresh and interesting.

I liked the show for the first four episodes but after watching the fifth this week (the funniest one yet!) I am now completely in love with it.  It's a little strange as my usual taste in movies and TV shows are as far from 'sweet' as you could get, yet there's something about the show's characters and storylines you just can't help but love. Well, it's little show at the moment but it's just got the green light for a full 24 episode season and trust me it's going to be huge!

So if you've seen it, what'd think?

I've been watching so far - in fact, it's the only new show this season I've stuck with in amongst the rest of the mediocrity I've caught.

It swings wildly between me adoring it, and finding it irritating. Lee Pace is a likeable lead and Chi McBride is always good value, and I don't find Anna Friel as annoying as certain online circles seem to. But sometimes its quirkiness just feels a little too forced, and much like Bryan Fuller's previous shows (Dead Like Me, Wonderfalls), it seems to be a neat concept that doesn't actually have much potential to go anywhere.

Still, it's lush to look at and at times very funny. I hope it makes a second season.

I do have an underlying worry it's going to get stale soon.  As much as I love it at the moment, I have no idea where they're heading - come half a series down the line it could be terrible.  Now, that's either a good thing (continuing to produce original ideas) or a very bad thing (they forced to use the formulaic episodic ideas of past to keep it going).

This weeks episode was probably the best since the pilot, and the best 40 minutes of television I've seen in ages. Emerson gets all the best lines, but Chuck and Ned are both fantastic leads.
