POI fans here? I was really taken in with the first season after the first few episodes. I thought the last 6-7 were really captivating and left me thirsting for the new season.

The first episode Thursday night was OK. I'm still pretty confused as to exactly what the 'machine' is, per se. I have a thought that Harold's partner is still alive and actually controlling it, but I might be way off.

Given it's J.J. Abrams producing and Jonathan Nolan writing, I have high hopes for the series. I just hope they know where they're going with it.
