Tonight I was able to sit down and watch Episodes 2 to 4 (Wendigo, Dead in the Water, Phantom Traveler)! I'm putting my ramblings under a cut, because I figure they will probably be long, but here are general things:
Jared's accent really does come out in these early episodes. Especially in Dead in the Water, when he says "Green. The Light's Green"...there is not a single word in the line that is not said with an accent. I actually sometimes wish they had just made the boys Texan and let them speak normally.
I've been constructing myself a vague timeline while I watch. I know there are perfectly good timelines out there, but I figured I might as well take the opportunity to verify some things and add some information I think is lacking from the other ones. For instance, I've been keeping track of how many days a single episode spans - it's quite fun, really.
I actually watched these with a little pad of paper and a pen...how lame am I?( To The Episodes! )
And there you have it! I talked to my friend in China this evening (which is why I'm so late writing this up - man I'm tired), and he has finished S1 and is currently downloading S2. I told him I was hoping he was caught up by the time I got there so that we could watch the new episodes together, but hey, no rush :P
