If you didn't like it, why did you watch the entire 550 minutes?
14 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Personally, I loved the show. I watched it when it was on originally and, while I don't compare the acting to "Lost", I can compare the show and the premise to it. I HATE a TV show where I can figure out what is going on, or "who did it" within the first 15 minutes, as I can with most shows. "Lost" kept me guessing for 6 years, and I didn't miss one single episode. I plan on watching "Persons Unknown" if it's brought back for a second season for that exact reason. I'm sorry that you didn't like it, but I still want to know something. Did it take you the entire season, all 550 minutes to realize that you didn't like it, or did you just watch it so you could come on here and complain about it?
