S01.E02: Camera Wheelbarrow Tiger Pillow

With the start of the Christmas show season I am starting on my DVR shows.  Just finishing this episode and I do like it mostly because I am a big fan of Allison.  (I still have Downward Dog on my DVR, just thought it was a cute show).  I am so hoping this doesn’t turn into another Lost which I had to give up after a few episodes out of frustration.  

So I am asking if you think it is worth my time to finish as I just looked it up and it is ‘on the bubble’. 🙄. Thanks for any input.

I didn't watch LOST, so I can't compare to that.

I can say I love this show, but I don't know if you'd feel the same.

It is fast-paced and doesn't drag out plot points. They answer questions within a reasonable time and somehow manage to keep things interesting without being coy about what's happening (shouldn't be a big deal, but a lot of shows don't know how to do it).

I also like the psychological/character beats.

I'm just catching up on my dvr, and saved this one to binge over my holiday time off, and just finished the second episode.

Yeah, they haven't explained anything about the husband so far at all. How they met, what's his job or any indication of why they broke up. I love me some Donald Faison, but he and the female lead have zero romantic chemistry to me. It improved from the pilot, but I get 'friend' at best from those two. If they want to sell 'regret breaking up', they have long road for that. 

I wondered about them being childhood friends who married before the husband processed he was gay.  It would explain why a couple that clearly still cares very much for each other and have a friendly relationship would be divorced.

Of course, this is the second episode, and it's a TV show, so "convenient love triangle" is probably more likely.  Crap.


Also, I will admit that I did not watch Lost, and did watch Once Upon a Time.  Since the OUaT creators were more determined to insert Lost eggs than they were to create solid mythos for their own show, I find Lost references almost toxic.

In real life, absolutely.  But in fiction, the next love interest is usually conveniently plot-centric.   I figured if Jo were interested in women, the British reporter would be female.
