I read the wiki on the novel, and that dosent have an ending per se.

We're working on the final episodes of the first season nowówe had an idea of where we wanted to go, but we're getting there by a radically different route than we expected. Surprising yourself is one of the true pleasures of storytelling. And yes, we know the ending Ö until we decide to change it.

I watched the first 3 episodes... looks promising but after reading the plot of the book on Wiki... doesn't seem like its going to get "really good." I can see this becoming very boring and watching it for a long time only to get to 0 answers. I wasn't a fan of "Lost" and this looks like it won't even compare to that.

Many people are going to be extremely disappointed with this show.

Its more about the effects on society that a catastrophic unexplainable event has, rather than the event being really cool and delving into the event.

Basically LOST without the sh1t ending... just a sh1t story.

Shows like this are weird to me. I watch them simply to see how it ends. It is the perfect definition of a waste of time.

This, a friend recommended this show so I gave it a shot, it's HBO so it isn't going to completely suck, I watch it when I have an hour to kill and nothing else is on.

It has been slow but then again not every show can have explosions, deaths, and major revelations in every episode.

Its more of a psychological take on what happened. Like I said, its very interesting. Not sure I'd watch a second season though.
