Jeff Daniels - casting fail

Directing - stilted and awkward

Writing - what are they going to do for drama after this episode, because you aren't going to have a real riveting story every week

Opinion of itself as a show - flatulence

Young budding romance - yes, you two are trying to be Natalie and Jeremy and you just are boring the hell outta me

Old friends - Jeff Daniels and Sam Waterson - snore fest

Did I mention, meh? And I'm like a mini Sorkin fangirl. It's not working for me. Will I watch again? Probably because I have this HBO subscription and my life is dull.

I actually thought it wasn't too bad. I found it a little slow in the middle.

However I agree. Not sure how they're going to keep up with "breaking news" stories each week. So it may suffer from it's own structure. I'll see how it goes in the next few episodes. It's hard to judge a show on one single episode, especially it's pilot.

I usually give a show three episodes. I suffered through 3 Wilfred episodes... so i can suffer through 3 of these.

Consequently, I didn't really like Once Upon a Time after the first episode, but I tried a couple more and it grew on me. The concept is stupid corny, but for some reason I'm enjoying it.

[q="Drew1365"]Any of these Sorkinisms appear?



If Jeff Daniels does the Jackal I'm going to run away...............
