Several members have indicated their anticipation of the opening episode of Project Blue Book and since it is showing now, I am wondering if it is living up to anticipated expectations or is it a disappointment to those looking forward to it's opening.

OK folks, let's hear what you think of this new series on the History Chanel.

I admit I haven't been watching it too closely but I don't see anything spectacular so far.

Now is the time for reviews. Let them rip.

I always worry that when something like this is done with such a large, expensive production that facts get left out in favor of entertainment.

Would really enjoy being proven wrong.

I saw it.. Looks ok. Some of the dialogue was hard to understand... volume kind of dropped off at times. Who was the blonde working for? Who's the guy with the brim hat? I guess they killed the pilot? The only issue is these episodes go so fast with commercials.

I enjoyed it - good entertainment. It's like watching how Fox Mulder would have felt reading the Project Blue Book reports. LOL! I'll watch it again.

I enjoyed this episode.
I agree with you about the volume issue. Had to replay a couple of scenes understand the dialog.
I missed some parts of it towards the end, will be rewatching tomorrow.

I had a difficult time navigating
between "Oak Island", The Presidential
Address, and Outer Space Aliens,
yet I did manage to absorb the Magic 3.

The Blue Book was great.
Although I found that the pushers
were trying to encompass too many
concepts into one episode.

The X files "multipath loose end"
technique was obvious.

Then again, I am just a Bogart fan...

As a TV series, I guess it will appease the appetites of common TV viewers. --That possibly is its purpose now that the topic has gone mainstream and somewhat calmly discussed, but with no disclosure eminent, of course.

Few viewers will know the truth that Blue Book, and the two before, Project Sign and Project Grudge, were official smokescreens to temper the onslaught of UFO sightings that were announcing the arrival of alien craft to our world in those days. So why not allow the media to push the false narrative of the matter?

The History Channel has the full episode: www.youtube.com...

Use the Closed Caption because there's some mumbling that's impossible to understand.

I haven't watched it (yet) ,and hadn't even heard of it until an actor I know who's in it texted to check out the premiere.

It sounds really, really cool, though.

I just caught the replay of the episode on the History Channel. It started off kind-of slow, but I stuck with it. I'm glad I did. I enjoyed watching it.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that experienced sound issues. My hearing is not what it used to be, so it's not unusual for me to have the TV volume pretty high. But I had it cranked up almost to maximum, and I'm pretty sure they could hear the mumbling dialogue next door.

The mysterious woman reminds me of a Caucasian Vivica A. Fox from the Kill Bill era. My first thought is that she's a Russian agent.

The scene with Dr. Hynek's wife, where the mysterious woman zips up her dress, had a strange visual. Their silhouettes seemed stretched out to me. However, there was a certain amount of sensual chemistry between the characters.

The mysterious man in black clothing, driving a nondescript black vehicle, is clearly representative of the Men in Black (MIBs.) However, this MIB appears to be helping Hynek to discover the truth. Perhaps he's a renegade like "Deep Throat" in the X-Files.

I'll probably watch the series. At this point it's stimulated my imagination enough for me to follow it for a while. However, I hope they're able to address the audio issues. With such a dense plot, it's somewhat disorienting to miss crucial dialogue.

I watched it last night, overall, I thought it was very well done and took me back in time to the era the series is set in.
I'd like to re-watch it, because I believe I may have missed something... Did Dr. Hynek actually follow the "MIB" to an abandoned building and see what looked like a MKULTRA setup or was this a dream sequence? What happened immediately after this? I guess I just need to pay more attention?

I did not have sound issues, but I was listening to it using over-the-ear BT headphones.

When I'm watching a program with sound volume problems, I break out my wireless headphones.

That's a good idea, especially with my aging hearing. But, in this case, I was watching on an old turn-of-the-century CRT television. So, the sound reproduction is not all that great anyway.

It's getting ready to come on again, so I might watch it on the big flat screen to see if it's any better there.

Finally found some time away from other shows to watch the first ep last night. I enjoyed it. Can't wait to watch the rest.
