When I saw the promos for this show, i thought... could be good. So thankfully I finished my school work before 8 o'clock so I could check this show out. For the first half hour, I didn't know whether or not I liked it. I like the aura surrounding it but something with the way they kept flashing back I didn't like. I felt a bit dizzy. I think if they were going to do that, they should make the previous occurrences appear different like a haze over the screen or something. I just began losing track of where I was, when it was happening and I began not to care. I think it'll be interesting to see how they pull of different main characters every week. I'll tell you though, it's putting a lot more actors into jobs. Why can't shows be like this for that one specific reason!?
