Re: Mockingbird Lane - It didn't suck!

The sudden tonal shift between the massacre in the opener and the non-massacre in dialogue is a nice example of spastic. You are allowed to quibble about the particular adjective "spastic" but that's all it would be: A quibble.

As for pointless: Why have Marilyn try to save Eagle Scout just to kill him herself? To cutely say "Oops!" in a Betty Boop voice? Or to show Herman fretting over losing his heart and then conveniently throwing in another heart besotted with Lily? Why was the denouement of the pilot episode devoted to showing us Spot?

I rather enjoyed some one liners. But there were quite enough problems even in the pilot that it is unlikely we're missing out much because it wasn't greenlit.
