The State Within  

Firstly, I knew there was gay kissing...but OMG! how come no-one told me it was that hot?!?!! There is more of this, yes? I loved the way Chris way eyeing up Nick whilst he finished his rant - that would have been so perfect to slash - but hot!kissing is probably better still.

Ok, now that the important stuff is out the way, the plot was pretty good too. There was a lot going on, I feel like I need to watch it again to fully grasp it all (not that that's a bad thing). But why is Nicholas (*sighs happily*) keeping things from the Ambassador? And WTF was up with those soldiers killing the other soldier and dumping the body - that was just creepy! The death row storyline promises to be interesting. *crosses fingers*

Like the plot, there were too many other characters to have opinions on yet. But I definitely didn't like the Secretary for Defense - why would they appoint someone with such an obvious personal agenda? I'm still undecided on Sinclair. Maybe because of my slash goggles or maybe because I knew there was a canon gay couple, Mark/Sinclair seemed glaringly obvious. But he's also looking a bit like a crazy person - using some poor kid to get his way and was that him following Mark at the end?

And since I've been so good and not even mentioned it once - God, Jason Issacs is pretty!

I totally said it was hot but it is actually impossible to sum up the immense beauty and hotness and greatness of that scene! It's been proven in tests :P

The plot it so, I'll try and find my comments when I was watching it the first time for you at some point, mostly I was lost a lot for the first episodes and it all builds and you find yourself wondering if it'll ever make sense but yes.

Not a big fan of the Defense lady.

Yep, like lokte says, you pimped the show beautifully. But you probably could have just shown that clip and watched the swarms of fangirls melt. *g*

I was thinking of saving it until I could watch the whole thing in one sitting, but after seeing the pilot I'm glad I didn't. Mainly because that wouldn't have been for ages, but also I think some time to process between the episodes might help with the plotty type things. :)

My copy of the DVD is on order so I haven't actually read your post, I am just skipping straight to the comments. I will have to remember to come back and read what you thought once I have caught up. morganmuffle certainly did a good job with the pimping!
