This is one of the worst series of the last couple of years. The plot and the acting is as bad as it gets. Honestly it made me wonder about my tv addiction cause I gave it a chance for a complete season. 2 Eps into season 2 it got even worse and I bailed...


This show's plot and script changes from obvious to random every 5 minutes.


I like this show. I think it's pretty awesome that Steven Spielberg and Stephen King managed to pull off a second season. For everyone bitching about season 2, this was originaly a mini series. Not planned, written or prepared passed season 1. They were shocked it was renewed. I love this show and it had to eventually go somewhere. Although I do not like the killing Angie off... shoulda been big jim.
