I have enjoyed watching Harper's Island. I think it's fresh and a step in the right direction for TV. I find the characters likable and I prefer writers that dig a bit deeper than some 2 dimensional characters in shows over the past decade. The writing shows strength in bringing out human characteristics that sometimes are only revealed in extremes (as in episode 5 over the money). It isn't spoon fed nonsense but has enough twists and turns to find yourself wishing for more.
My comment is it's a step in the right direction for fictional writing and a lot of shows including reality I am just over. I think it is brave to present something in a new vein of thought. Keep it coming I'm loving it and thanks to the writers for something fresh and not just regurgitated rubbish (like my brain doesn't work and I can't tell the difference). A big big thank you for an enjoyable mystery show.
