Good Series Got Off To A Poor Start
30 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What a horrible start to a good television show. All of the baloney in this opening episode so typical of the Steven Spielberg agendas that he spewed forth in his first decade of movie making. Here we get a child that knows more than his parents and/or his parents don't believe him; we get the American Indian had "the right" to scalp people because it was their land first message. "Scalping" someone is okay?! Unbelievable. We also get a ludicrous "ghost" story that makes no sense, even considering that it's a ghost story. The is a poor man's Poltergeist and E.T. episode.

It was nice to see little Lukas Haas who was a memorable little Amish boy in the great film "Witness," that also came out about this time. That was about all that was good about this show. Thank goodness, all the episodes got far better as the season went on from this opening turkey.
