I got a good deal on the first season of this show, which, incredibly, never pulled me in during the first run. I think I would have been hooked if I’d seen the end of… well, of any episode. These are the best cliffhangers I’ve ever seen. The slow reveal that a character has accidentally jumped into the future as a nuke goes off… the girl waking up in a morgue and discovering that she’s been vivesected… this is how to shock a viewer. Good on you, random Crossing Jordan producer who created this show.
I’ve been checking out Ugly Betty too, and it’s cute, and if I had a youngish daughter I’d plop her down in front of the telescreen to watch it, but it’s mighty predictable and cutesy.
