My opinion on this show has changed drastically since S2 was announced. When I came into this I thought it was basically a summer long mini-series with an ending to the show due at the end of the summer. I was willing to overlook some sloppy writing because I was happy to see the good ratings as I *WANT* to see more American TV go to a 1-season only storytelling type format like you find in some TV shows from other countries.
Being able to watch a 12 episode to maybe 24 episode SERIES where you get a conclusion to the show at the end would interest me a lot. Too much of the non-episodic TV nowadays is just pumped full of filler in order to make the season episode count and get the show to the following year. I've watched a lot of shows from the UK, Korea, Japan, etc... where all the show ever had was one season which told the entire story of the characters and then it ended.
