    The episode was all exposition, but the unraveling of everyone’s flash forward was really engaging. The cinematography was brilliant especially with the first act, and the final scene kept me wanting more. I reviewed the episode on my blog.

    Watch the very ending again…the only “person” moving while everyone else is asleep. Is it Adam Lambert??

    The only reason I watched this was because I thought they were going to play Adam Lambert’s ‘ “Mad World”. I was so disappointed when I thought Adam wasn’t included, then towards the end when everyone was unconcious, a very manly figure in a long black coat appeared. He was the only one awake while everyone else was asleep. I think it was the glittery alien from the planet fierce.

    @Wicked Glitter:

    LOL I thought the same thing!
    It does look like Adam.

    Steph, I really hope that it was Adam. I mean after all , the only ‘being’ on earth who could put everyone in a coma with their hotness would be Adam Lambert!

    In spite of no MAD WORLD I’m hooked … will be watching it every week. Who knows … maybe they’ll surprise us and play it when we least expect it. Maybe we should petition ABC … LOL
