I don't mind the show; It's better than 90% of whatever else is on at the same time, and since I haven't read the book yet, I'm curious to see where this goes.
I don't know what's in that 90% but you set the bar low. This show is cliched and just dull. The characters just aren't interesting and they're not focusing at all on the "problem" of the series -as I feared. It's all character nonsense which would be fine if the characters were interesting and not cliches.
I found that if I lower my expectations I'm rarely disappointed. That's why I remain a Colorado Rockies fan...
I'm probably too complacent in what I watch (hell I watched five consecutive episodes of BBQ Pitmasters last week). I think it's a cool concept, and has some creepy moments in it so I'll stick with it for the time being.
