A really good show...screwed by another NBC time slot choice, 23 December 2008
Author: missesaw from Atlanta, GA

The ads and trailers for My Own Worst Enemy were exciting and intriguing to say the least. One guy, Christian Slater, seemingly two different people who are clueless as to their lots in life. Henry, the family guy accountant, and Edward, the egocentric assassin. How were they going to pull that off so it was new, fresh? But pull it off they did.

But there were scripting and conflict issues with Henry v. Edward. I found myself yelling at Henry when in difficult situations because of his utter stupidity for self preservation. Laughing at Edward when he diddled with the wife and she was suddenly a very, very happy stay at home mom.

As the season went on, I wasn't sure how long I could put up with Henry's stupidity....then there was a plot turn, a scripting turn and it all came together. It then hit me -- Henry, though lovable family guy -- was *supposed* to be the clueless wonder. The company made sure of it. The military/intelligence orgs' programming of people is already good, but the premise of this show brought that to new heights. Kicking that kind of behavioral programming up to that notch, Henry was what they made him -- a pencil pusher, number cruncher who was afraid of his own shadow, and above and beyond the call of the perfect rube if it all went bad.....the uber ultimate in plausible deniability. He couldn't have behaved any other way.

Henry also is a good person, good to the bone, the best of the best ethics, and in recent episodes, we finally find out how that trait (among others) benefits the big picture.

So now, when all the questionable scripting and plot points come together in a fluid manner -- as I imagine it was intended -- NBC realizes that they stuck the show in the middle of two ratings nut busters that have been duking it out since they went head to head (CSI: Miami and Boston Public)......so seems to me that NBC is the ultimate idiot. And the public looses out....again.

If NBC really thinks their mid-season replacement is going to get them the ratings push they want or need, they are even dumber than I said previously. Another hooray for us on the receiving end.

For those of you who haven't watched all or any of the show, time to download it, watch it realtime on the various places on the web, and/or get it all On Demand and watch it from beginning up to now. I promise, you will be just as disgusted and infuriated as I am right now.

Once everyone is caught up, let me know and we can all storm NBC together and demand they bring it back, put it in an honest time slot and then make them step away.
