    I like the front end okay, but I'm not a fan of the drive units.

    Small doses of McFarlane can be funny, but sometimes he overestimates how funny he is, and it gets tiresome.

    Well, I've seen worse first episodes. But there was too much "We're gonna do this...wink, wink" foreshadowing. The effects had an odd look about them. I liked that the ships are actually maneuverable. I liked that there was a Wright Flyer model on the captain's desk. I hated that everyone had to stop and pose to before taking a shot with their pistols. And, as expected, there was too much McFarlane 'uncomfortable "humor"'.

    I'm assuming it's available to view online, so I'll probably watch it today.

    Yeah, that's been my biggest concern. Still, I'll give it a watch.

    I've gotta say, it wasn't bad. It wasn't great either, but pilots can be rocky. I definitely could have done without Seth MacFarlane's twelve year old sense of humor, but he did a pretty decent job on it. I don't imagine they had the biggest budget, (it's Fox) which is probably why some of the CGI looked a little outdated. But, it wasn't terrible . You can't expect the very best from every project. Also, it may improve as the series goes on. We'll see.
