I wanted to watch the first three episodes before I gave my opinion of it so far so here you go. I wasn't really sure if I was going to like this show based on the first two episodes because it was very "Convictiony" (not a fan of Conviction) and it seemed to lack a clear direction. The third episode had the first infiltration and mission of the series and it seems like the story is starting to take shape. The goggles in the preview only covered one of his eyes so I was worried this series may lack accuracy but I was happy to see they fixed that in episode three. The acting isn't very good in this series but it looks like they had a decent budget and tried hard so I give it a thumbs up. I wish they would have given it a more creative name than "Extinction" too. I subscribed to the "START" channel and I will be watching Splinter Cell: Extinction every Tuesday. Maybe if this series is a success then they will FINALLY make an official Splinter Cell movie. I rate it a "C."
