I watched the first episode, thought it was so-so and did not tune in last night. Do you like this show or should they chop it out of the lineup?

Replaces (sort of) "Without a Trace" - I like it for what it is...

I almost posted this same thing last week. I'll give almost anything a chance, and watch most things--but this one I didn't like quite as much as I would have hoped I would. Watched the first episode, thought about giving it another try, and then took it out of the lineup. Good enough, but missing something for me. Given my busy line up it wasn't worth keeping in the loop, for me.

Why don't you care for Christian Slater anymore, phonelady? It wasn't his fault "My Own Worst Enemy" got cancelled before it could fly.

Didn't catch the premier but caught tonight's eppie, I don't see what's so terribly wrong with "The Forgotten". It's a lighter, fluffier forensics show.

I watched the pilot. The second episode is on the DVR but I haven't watched it yet. I found the pilot to be kind of boring. It does have Christian Slater who I have always liked, but I think My Own Worst Enemy had a much more interesting premise and more opportunities for Slater's unique delivery of dark humor. This show just seems serious and depressing, like watching SVU. I hope it gets more compelling and I'll try to give it a few more episodes before I give up.

Bad. I have given up on it already. For one thing, I thought it was too unrealistic that this bunch of Joe Schmoes is able to solve a crime in 5 days that the cops couldn't in a year. Not saying it doesn't happen but my guess it will every week on this show.

okay i for one did not like the pilot epi as stated above but I am starting to like it more as I watch it more . but yeah it is a little far fetched about how they solve crimes and the police cant . I think it is meant by the writers to show if the police had taken more time with the information they had , the police might have been able to solve it . I think that is more the premise of the show . I am liking it especially walters charecter . i think he is awesome and he has one of those faces you would just really help him .
