If you listened to my preview, you know that I had one caveat going forward in regards to this show. That being that the twist was a big part of what made the first episode great and it’s not something that you can really do long term. After having watched tonight’s and next week’s episodes, I am no longer worried, at least for the foreseeable future. What did you think of last week’s premiere? Will you be continuing to watch?
