    Don't know if they planned on running into the Americans on land the way it happened. Not like they could have talked their way on-board with Russian accents.

    In Soviet Russia, submarine steals you!

    I like the fact that they didnt make the Navy all of a sudden amazing fighters and they actually pretty much lost to the Spetznatz before the SEAL guy came and saved them.

    That's exactly what came to mind for me, man it'd be awesome if it was the theme song for the show.

    Am I the only one who keeps thinking of Total Recall when I hear about this show?

    Then the stripper music starts playing in my head...

    The ones that got shot and either injured or knocked out for a bit because of it hitting their vest hard enough.

    Had the Russians been able to take over the Americans [story line is they would have if not for the Seal(s)], they would have been able to be waiting for the sub to surface and open the hatches.

    Sub had to surface to allow people on/off.

    The Russians would have had multiple people that could speak fluent English without an accent.

    Remember that the Colorado was expecting it to be Delta Force coming at them; any type of twist on that could have succeeded.

    Well they would had been able to communicate to the sub before they got killed but still they knew about them well ahead of time so unless they had left the sub unguarded in harbor for easy pickings it seems kind of a stupid idea to use the group to try to take it over.

    Not to mention I seriously doubt they would let anyone new on board like that as there is a limited amount of people and a new person pretending to be a crew man would had been obvious.

    Why did they not use the cloaking device even if it had issues before?

    Not watching anymore...guaranteed to get cancelled and I ain't going to waste the time getting further into it only for it to get pulled before things can get wrapped up.

    If some how it survives, then I'll catch it on DVD or streaming.

    Blah...the show had good potential but has already turned cheesy. The female looks like a super model definitely not a sub commander. She's too young, too pretty and her makeup too well done.

    I like Robert Patrick and Andre Braugher, the rest are cardboard.

    Its TV. Everyone on TV is good looking besides reality shows. Would you be happier if she was a fat pig?

    I was very happy and surprised about the wife actually knowing the dude was a government agent. I was getting sick of the whole played out turn the wife against the husband story

    There are some cheesy parts of the show, but also lots of great stuff. I am sad that it doesn't seem to be doing to well. I don't expect it to be on tv for all that long as I don't see advertisements for it anymore. Which is sad

    There isn't one but those who know about these things have already called it a goner...word is it will probably get a full season order (+ maybe a couple extras) this season and then be cancelled.

    It really was. I like this week's with the push towards more info about what's going on but damn...
    after everything that Surat does to these guys and seemingly kidnaps them at will you would think that they would hang him over a tree in the middle of town already
