I agree with you that it has potential. I'll watch the first three episodes then decide if I'll continue watching.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I'm really liking it so far. It's got a Hunger Games feel to it and I like Elizabeth Mitchell and Giancarlo Esposito.

The majority of the episode is so boring and I end up fast forwarding most of it, but the cliffhanger always gets me to keep it on record.

Why would bullets be hard to make? I can see bullets for modern weapons like AK-47s being difficult to manufacture, but wasn't China using gunpowder during the Middle Ages or even earlier?

I friend of mine makes his own bullets. A little lead, some black powder and a press.
Now after folks run out of their store bought bullet making material is when it gets really hard.

you'd have to find sulphur, nitrate(could scrape horse stable walls for dried urine) and charcoal. mix in the appropriate quantities and try not to blow yourself up while getting the recipe right.

The niece annoys the hell out of me. Why did they have to put teenagers into a prominent role in the show?? Argh.

And the dialogue is also a bit annoying. It's so cliche and forced. It literally looks like a writer just finished feeding them their lines and the actors haven't bought in. The main guy, Miles, is it? He's just a terrible actor. Can't deliver a line to save his life.

I'll watch a couple more in hopes the story saves the acting...but, it's not 'must-see' for me right now. Luckily it comes on at 10pm and has no real competition.

That other show 'Last Resort' looks promising however.
