I know. And my post wasn't just directed at you. I find both the show stalkers who virulently hate a series yet comment on it in every thread for years and those who can't seem to be able to take even reasonable criticism of a show they love equally irritating.
C'mon, you were clearly pointing it at him. You quoted him and then said 'you'.
You know, if you insist on repeatedly making stupid comments unrelated to the show in response to my posts in here, at least get the facts straight. I said; right in the post that you're quoting above, that it wasn't "just directed at him." As in, it was directed at him and at other people who do the same thing.

Any other shit you want to make up to try and score some points here? Because you've tried and failed twice and obviously suck at this. Just stick with discussing the show, champ.

I just feel sorry for anyone who watches all 22 episodes and hates every one and spends hours bitching about it. You think I'm crazy now, but we'll see...
And if 22 episodes down the road the same people who complain about every single episode yet still watch the show religiously are here, they'll be the annoying ones. Until then, whining about people having a negative opinion about a new show in a discussion forum where opinions are not only desired but necessary makes you the one being annoying.
No, this was the post of yours.
I've discussed the show already, I'm not trying to score points, I just didn't think you were being very nice.

I don't find it very nice to complain about people having a negative opinion on a new show in a discussion thread. I don't find it nice to complain about the length of someone's post in a discussion thread. I don't find it very nice to say that post looked like it was being made out of spite, as if I could have spite against a TV show. The prior two things you defended, and the last you said yourself to cause trouble.

Now, I'm done wasting my time responding to your bullshit. I came here to discuss the show, not all these fucking side issues you keep bringing up and defending.

You may have seen the brunette from this:

Actually, it looks like I was wrong.

Whoever posted the video mistakenly IDed her as Taylor Cole.

You would've seen her from Heroes or Summerland or a bunch of guest star roles (Numbers, CSI: Miami, Supernatural, or as a hooker on NCIS).

HOLY SHIT

Watch this show about a thing that happened! Continue watching so that eventually you might find out what that thing is! Nevermind the flashbacks, keep watching! It's a mystery and you wanna know what happens, don't you?!

This show is crap, the people that made it should hang themselves.

Didn;t know this thread was here, revived a thread in Media to talk about it. We're getting the 2nd ep in AUstralia this week.

After 15 min of ep 1 I thought this is not for me, I've spent too much time in too many series (Lost, Flashforward, Heroes, etc) for shitty/no payoff What irritated me the most was the guy running around going "OMG! OMG! What's going on!?" Got old quickly.

That said, I'll watch the start of this week to see how it goes. And my son thinks it's okay, which is not a bit of a thumbs up.

See, I feel there was a key difference between this and Lost/Heroes. Granted Heroes started to suck and even when it was good, it ended quite anti-climatically. However, Lost worked on many levels, one of the biggest ones being character. The reason so many fans gave it the benefit of the doubt was because of the strong characters, strong acting, and good writing of character interactions. At the end of the day, many of the fans didn't care about a lot of the mysteries set up, just so long that the all the character's story lines were ties up in a good manner.

The Event and Flash Forward are lacking the characters, which is why I wasn't all that forgiving on Flash Forward and I'm not all that forgiving of The Event. You could say I'm being judgmental, but at the same time, I was compelled by the characters of Heroes and Lost very early on, I was even taken by some of them in the pilot (Hiro, Ando, Suresh, Hurley, Charlie, Sayid).

But ultimately, at the same time, I really like a good mystery. I like having to involve myself with the overarching story, while still enjoying the characters. Since I've finished Lost, I've put together a lot of new theories on events that happened and why things happened. That's a really cool level to have a show at, but it can be frustrating watching and waiting for things to happen if (in risk of sounding like a broken record) the characters are weak.
