So I watched the first episode on demand last night. I liked it. There was a lot going on for a first episode and in a way, maybe too much at times. It seems like they felt they had to introduce us to just about every character and element right from the start. I think I would've enjoyed it more if we just got glimpses of things at first and if there was a bit more of a build-up. But maybe they felt they had to draw people in right away, so hopefully now they'll explore some of the elements more slowly and let some suspense and mystery build. There's definitely a lot of potential, though.
Last nights episode was 10x better than the first. Slowed down a bit and started building around the storylines. Totally into it now. Rest of the season should be great.
I think the casting was really well done. All of the characters are nailing their parts, especially Lange. They are all fucked up but realistic characters. So far its like a mix of Nip/Tuck and Six Feet Under with a horror theme.
The best part about this show ? It has to be Dylan McDermott in various stages of undress. In just two episodes we have seen him shirtless countless number of times and fully nude atleast two times. Too bad the story is fatally flawed and the acting just amateur at times.
So, I'm caught up. Was it just me or was there a continuity error with the maid's eye? (Sorry too lazy to rewind) With the young version, the gunshot was on the right eye but with the old incarnation it's on the left. Or was I imagining things? Zachary Quinto was awesome as was the Down Syndrome girl. I just wish that the daughter wasn't your typical cigarette-smoking morose hipster-ish teen. Tired of it.
Benji Schwimmer is gay. Do the sister wives know?!
