That was probably the least convincingly Cuban Cuba I've ever seen on tv, ha!

Anyway, just wanted to get a season-premiere thread posted -- I never expected it to make it past the first season, but I'm glad NBC has stuck with it.

I’m pretty sure when Ben was speaking Spanish at the beginning, it was dubbed.

I was mad at Michaela for crawling into the awful prison chamber. If this were a different show, she could have been trapped in there too. Think, girl!

They’ve gotta wrap this show up pretty quickly or do a time jump. Cal is getting old. I’m hoping they do anyway because I really want there to be a clearly defined, satisfying ending.

I'm not watching the show, but based on episode names from prior seasons trying to seem aviation-y: it's a vertical stabilizer, darnit.

It was awful, whoever it was. I mean, there's no reason Ben wouldn't be speaking Spanish with the most white-bread high school Spanish class pronunciation ever, but, it cracked me up almost as much as fake-Cuba did.

The producers said back in S1 that they had a 6-year plan. I don't know what our odds are of them getting to stick to their plan, but, at least we'll be at the halfway point by the end of this season.
