I'm not making a blanket characterization... I'm only reporting what I saw and why I wasn't particularly compelled to continue watching. It could be that I was unlucky enough to catch the worst of the episodes.
Besides, Ellery Queen
's structure was unusual compared to most mystery shows, what with the TV equivalent of the novels' "Challenge to the Reader." That was all I meant. But it's certainly true that the Ellery Queen
creators would know better. I didn't realize M,SW
was created by the same people either.
