  • He was so great on The Unit not to mention his evil performance as the T-1000 in Terminator 2.

  • Good. It seemed like in the preview he dies or something. Glad he is sticking around. This is one of the few pilots that have me interested from the get go.

  • Yay for Robert Patrick, the guy has such a presence. He’s sexy in an unconventional way and is an excellent actor. He’ll draw viewers to that show and now, I’ll watch it.

  • Yeah, if you have an actor of that caliber on your show, you lock it down. He’s great in everything.

  • Glad he is staying on as a regular, and not getting killed off in the first episode, like he has been in many other series. I love Robert Patrick, and I am looking forward to this series. Interesting premise.

  • This is great news This man has been wonderful in everything I have seen him in – Outer Limits, X-Files, Stargate Atlantis, etc. He deserves to be a regular. He deserves his own show.
