This would have been a C Minus if it had been an X-Files episode. I'll watch again, but if episodes two and three aren't better than the pilot, they'll definitely lose me as a viewer.
I thought the score was good. However, I wonder how much of that is because it reminds me of LOST and how I miss it.

I would have liked JJ to direct the pilot. That was probably my only complaint. If there's anything I learned from LOST, it's that when the creators come in and take over, things change for the better.

I do agree with other comments I've read online that the dialogue left a lot to be desired. A lot like Transformers with characters saying stupid things.
