The writers also are exceptionally inventive. Many episodes have surprised me with the direction the familiar story has gone in. I am a great fan of Lost also, so I am looking forward to see how everything changes in Season 2, but I hope that they don't mess up what has been a great beginning to the series. I hope that I am watching this programme for many years to come.
The story definitely keeps you on edge at the end of each episode, but the season finale gives you some level of comfort. Now you just wonder what is going to happen in the second season. Great Actors, and Crew that made this show. Looking forward to watching the second season air in October of 2012.
It starts off very interesting, very fresh with an engaging cast & a seemingly well woven tapestry of story. I found that by episode 6 , it was already starting to get stale- despite the occasional resurgence of an intriguing idea. The story arc starts to lag & the writing gets so lazy. I found myself so frustrated that a certain queen who was supposedly evil, had nothing more to do than dance around shaking her finger & making idle threats- sporadically doing something actually evil so we didn't forget.
Add to that the infuriating glacial pace & ridiculous scenarios that wastes some good talent & GREAT ideas. Despite my best effort, I wasn't able to finish the season. This show did such an about face with the writing that it seemed to devolve in to a soap opera, for which I loathe. For every interesting new step forward, it seemed to take an appalling 2 steps back.
I was so taken by the actors & their characters that I watched 3 episodes longer than I should have , hoping it would get better. Never happened.
I would love to see this show done without the mandatory 20 some odd episodes and done on a cable channel to allow it to take more chances & not play it safe so often.
