I agree with Jeff in that you get hooked on these shows, they're canceled, and you're left with nothing but wasted time. That said, the pilot kept my attention, but was not written well. I saw many things that could have been done better. In some ways it was just stupid. Like, the militia has machine guns but sends the troops out with swords, knives, and civil war era rifles. And General Monroe has his fancy tent, with all his fancy furniture, strutting around like King Edward. I won't continue to watch.
