    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.

    Yay! I’ve been a fan since he played Doggett

    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.
