I love the fact that the show is, in a way, the anti- "24", in that it is slow and cerebral and moody and has deeper themes beginning to develop than the macho ridiculousness of "24".

This show is totally inscrutable. I gave it four episode and I just don't get it. It's like watching sausage being made. I just want to see mustard and sauerkraut, everything else can go in the background.

I like that your set seems low tech (compared to 24) yet the suspense is not compromised, rather is slowly unraveling and unnerving. Great show!!!

I've only been able to watch the first episode on Hulu, but I loved it. I suppose I'll have to wait until its on DVD to see the rest. No spoliers, please!

I'm really really enjoying this show so far, especially the slow unraveling of the conspiracy.

I'm also curious as to why it's called "Rubicon"...is it to indicate that the characters have to cross certain lines no return in their decisions, or to indicate that Will is going to cross some line of no return in his investigation of the conspiracy sometime in the future or both?
