The show is somewhat hard to follow and made worse when some actors are awful. In the "Memories" episode aired Friday, July 9, the jurors were pretty captivating. But, the woman attempting to play the mother seemed like someone who had won [or bid on ebay] a guest spot on a TV show. [I don't want to say much because I don't want to spoil this for someone who has not seen the episode] Having large casts every week shouldn't be a good excuse for not finding good talent. There are a lot of good actors looking for work. This week's episode has a guest judge, which will be a welcome change. Kind of stretches the imagination to think one judge would have all these tough cases.
