definitely hooked. but only because there's nothing else going on except for new lost episode :) it's way too much of Ali McBeal and the name is kinda similar.

I loved it. I tried to watch Lost after a two hour long bio lab and it was just too much for me. This show was just so calming for some reason. I don't know how to explain it.

But they gave that very informative and lengthy disclaimer at the end of the show that this was a complete fabrication and no parts of the episode were based on real events, people, or medicine. And they also gave information on where people can go for information on autism. Seriously, the man saw a train in the middle of his office close to reality are you trying to get?

I had an issue with the episode for it's content, In the first episode he's shown winning a case that suggests that the mercury - based preservative thimerosal - which is no longer used in vaccines - may lead to autism. Childhood vaccines save lives and do not contain mercury. the episode is fiction vaccines are safe and effective vaccines do not contain mercury-based preservatives there is no scientific link between vaccines and autism I work for an org. that urges parents to get their children vaccinated and this was just too much!

I really wanted to love it, but I'm not totally sold yet. A lot of the time the pilot episode can be a little off and the rest of the series is better. I'll probably watch it two or three more times, then we'll see. I think it's to "quirky" for America to really embrace it, though.

I liked it, but I will have to see a few more, before I can say I loved it.

PS: While the show bares some strong resemblance to Ally McBeal...that is the nature of television. "Original" television programming is very, very hard to come by. I believe the two most original shows on now are probably LOST and Pushing Daisies...everything else is pretty much a slightly altered cut-out of something else!!!

There is a special place in my heart for Victor Garber (spy daddy). I wasn't home last night, but for him I will defintely give it a shot next week. :-)

I thought it was cute and I giggled every time George Michael came on. It was nice to watch a new show, not just new in content, but just completely new. I'll watch next week with the hopes of seeing George Michael again. The acupuncturist and the assistant were great too.

I enjoyed it. Looking forward to giving it more views!!!

As someone who works in the Conflicts & Ethics department of a law firm I kept wanting to throw something at my tv. It would be impossible for Eli Stone to represent the mother when he was already defending the big corporation on the same case, for various reasons that I won't go into. I would imagine the storyline was just as implausible for anyone working in the medical field. Writers- please do some research! Also it seemed like Eli Stone went way too quickly from asshole lawyer to a nice guy and "defender of the people." They should have dragged that out over a lot more episodes for better character development. I will watch another episode because there isn't much else to do on a Thursday night, but I'm not in love with it so far.

It was cute, but a little too 'tidy'. I don't dig shows where everything gets wrapped up in a nice little package at the end. It gives me no incentive to watch again. I only watched for the LOST promo (which was just meh...ok) anyhow. I may check it out in the future, but I don't feel like I'd be missing out if I missed most of the episodes. The characters weren't too terribly developed either. You know the numbers will be skewed from last night anyhow as most people probably got suckered in due to LOST and not because the show looked so great!

Jonny Lee Miller sold it and I liked the surprise Tom Cavanaugh appearance, plus Victor Garber is always so good. The unaired version was supposedly "better" but the actors are charming so I'll give it a chance (plus, Berlanti).

I didn't mind it! I totally want more scenes with the assistant though. She was hilarious. I know its only a 60 minute show, but I thought he would have put up more of a fight to go with the whole "faith" thing. I also thought it was a very similar to Ally McBeal.

It was worth seeing it for Jonny Lee Miller and the George Michael cameo. Seriously. Otherwise, it's not too bad--it's definitely nice to catch an episode of a TV show that I haven't seen already--and I'm sure I'll watch the next episode. Will George Michael be back for next week, or can we expect a different singer each time? Hmmmm...
