1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Please address any questions about using the new forum to support@styleforum.net

    Cheers,

    The Styleforum Team

    It sucked. Another lame wanna-be LOST.

    Hoping it's a Fringe and not a Lost

    Same here. Don't have high hopes, though.


    It didn't suck, it just wasn't very impressive. And I'd say Alcatraz takes after Fringe much more than Lost.


    Can't tell if serious? Lost is miles better than Fringe.

    I loved Lost and I love Fringe. They're different types of shows so I rather not compare them directly.

    I thought it was ok, bringing Jorge Garcia's character into the investigation seemed kind of forced, but a lot of pilot episodes tend to have similar problems. Concept is decent though, so I'll keep watching for a couple more episodes at least.

    Feels much more like what little I've seen of Fringe than Lost.

    I just wish it wasn't a contrived plot line that relies on the typical crime drama mantra of "another week, another episode, another murderer on the loose"

    Where is the originality in the script, when you know that every damn episode will be a new convict with a "special" story to tell each and every week?

    Exactly. Are they hoping to do 302 episodes?

    even if all the episodes are better then sliced bread the ending will still SUCK!!!!!!!! beacuse its a J.J show.
    every single one of his shows endings is a mess...still waiting on Fringe ending (although admittedly if they had stopped it last season with Peter just dissapearing from both altearnate worlds would have actually been pretty good)
