It's been so long since the pilot, I don't remember much.

After the first I didn't think I'd care. After the second, I'm sure I don't.

I must say the only reason I was even watching this was Alexa Davalos but I think I'm done with it.

This show is really bad but for some reason I keep on watching it and I don't know why.

Will being the priest at the end was funny not shocking.

I don't see this show lasting much longer in its current timeslot and chances are very slim that we'll ever know who was murdered and who was the killer.

This show is just laughably bad. The writing is poor - as is the entire set-up for each episode/year. This thing is like a dying deer on the side of the road - it's just waiting for someone to come along and put it out of its misery.

Yet, it somehow got great reviews.

Best part last night was the Whitesnake video parody.

What did they say was the name of that band anyway?

when she walked in she said it was a Hazard video.... sep then later outside the bar the guy goes "hanging out with your whitesnake friends". Wonder if that was done for some legal reason?

The first ep of the show I thought was ok and the 'hook' of a new year every ep was interesting. Execpt some how they have managed to screw all that up and now make the show feel like it's dragging on and on all by just the 2nd ep!?! Maybe it's knowing that one would have to suffer past 18 MORE eps to get to the end!!

WHY does that one guy always get a long winded and poorly written rant every ep? Geeeeeeesh.. the first ep it was the speech about how "..he does not love you!!!" and this ep he went on and on about something 1 and something 2 and then rip a heart out etc etc.. I'm not sure being I was really starting to not pay attention by then.

I still think the idea of behind the show is an interesting one but who ever was put in charge of hashing out the story lines, failed..

I thought he said "Whitesnake" sarcastically.

I think that guy lacks the acting range to pull off "sarcastically" or anything else for that matter!! heh

or I might just be bitter that they did not show more of Amanda Righetti rolling around on a car hood in all her Tawny Kitaen glory

I thought that it was bad also. I like Will Estes, but I don't see where they are going with his story making him a priest. The age progression makeup on this show is horrible. Somebody needs to tell Dave Annable that he is not Seth Coen and he is not funny. Seth Coen isn't even funny anymore on the O.C. I want to keep watching this with hope that it will get better, but it reminds me of how bad Point Pleasant was

I'm definitely done with this show. I only had this on as background last night and I thought about turning it off the entire time. I'm officially done.

You know what? I may just keep watching. Its so bad that its kind of good (like Showgirls), plus who knows when we'll ever see Chyler Leigh again?

I noticed they also got cheap with the music in this episode. I could be wrong, but I think they only played "known" songs at the very beginning and very end of the episode this time, with generic stuff inbetween. Guess they shot their wad with the music in the pilot.

This show deserves to be cancelled, but I can see it lasting a while for some reason.

I'm quitting, as well. On top of the bad acting and writing, I find none of the characters worth caring about.

I'll just read online to find out who is killed/the killer if they ever get that far (and to see if I'm correct about Sam's baby growing up and killing Craig.)

That does sound like a David Manning job.

I wonder what genius thought it was a good idea to give the man who gave us Tru Calling free reign to produce his *second best* idea.

It was probably the same genius who waited for Tru to get half decent before deciding to yank it.

We know monkeys don't program Fox because their decisions don't make enough sense for that explain it.

hehehe.. It's just THAT easy to warp just about anything into a good review..

Every now and then I get distracted by bad teeth when the story at hand fails to engage me, and both Chyler and Alexa have some scary teeth in HiDef.

I wonder if Fox will pull the plug after a dozen episodes or so, and then release the concluding episode on DVD. I could see that happening.
