I liked the setup with the Bridget and Bobby story, and the resolution, it was very sweet.

The other "main" subplot bordered on surreal at the very end, but the family relationship aspect of the show is pretty good, so I can look past the "crimes" portion.

The resolution w/ Bobby and Bridgette was very well done - great way to finish off that little revelation.

I wish they had the girl wear something like a red hooded sweatshirt at the end instead of literally wearing the same thing Arquette saw in her dream. It made the sequence sillier than it should of been.

I think Patricia Arquette and Jake Weber are becoming my favorite married couple on TV. They really feel natural together and always have the show's best dialogue.

Good episode, I agree the Bobby/Bridgette story was well done.

I don't know if it was just me but the dialogue for this show was really fuzzy. I had to turn the volume way up and then immediately turn it back down for commercial breaks. It was really frustrating. It sounded like the conversation was coming from inside a well.

Same problem with the volume here.
Otherwise this show was very entertaining.

I wasn't too thrilled with the premiere episode, but I've enjoyed it since (though I missed one episode). The interaction between Alison and Joe is entertaining. Their reaction to their daughter's lack of friends and her "powers" felt very authentic.

The show has been picked up for a 2nd season.

My wife said the same thing about the volume, but for me, it was only bad when the mother and daughter were talking through the glass window. The rest of the show was pretty good.
