4 episodes in. It's...well...anyone else getting the Doctor Who parallels? Sub in made-up science for made-up magic, and a female companion for...well, a female companion. He's even got a male companion that can't die, psychic paper (the card), and a house that's bigger on the inside. Heck, Torchwood already ran an episode with a hand-like object that temporarily brings people back from the dead. Constantine ripped it with the candle-hand bit in an early episode.
DW is my favorite show on TV, so this isn't a complete damnation (pun intended). But it's hitting all of the tropes of the genre, not to mention tropes of TV series in general right now. And all without standing out in ways that leave me wanting more. I laughed at one point because Zed stopped pushing as she was just about to learn the heart of Newcastle, they pulled back just as I was saying "aaand that's it for this episode..." because they need to space it out over the season (or at least half-season). And other than a couple lines in the pilot, all of which were spoiled in the trailer, that's been my only actual laugh, and it was at the expense of the show. The predictability is boring. Here's hoping it changes, though it likely doesn't have long to change my mind before I'm done with it.
Matt Ryan is good, at least. The gravitas and line delivery he brings to the character are the only thing keeping the show afloat. Zed is about the most generic companion imaginable, so hopefully they do something better with her soon. The black guy playing the angel is good too. His interludes are always welcome.

Personally, I started losing interest about halfway through. Mainly because I thought NBC was the wrong platform for it. IMO, it should have been on something like Cinemax, Netflix or HBO, which would have allowed them to push it until it became edgy enough to be interesting.
