I can understand why this show has an 83/100 score currently. But I think its gonna end up at around 6 or even 5 if they continue to go in the direction they are going recently.

I just saw the kite episode and found so many thing annoying. When I finished watching with my wife, we looked at each other and the first thing she said was, this was the worst thing she has seen in a long time. At first, I couldn't pinpoint what it was. Well besides the obvious.

Kiefer Sutherland's acting is horrible. He over acts. He is constantly chasing his kid around acting like a moron. Then it always comes to this realization moment where he says, "oh, i see. this is what the kid is trying to say."

I'm getting tired of this formula. Also, suspension of belief needs to be exercised, but I'm just too tired to utilize those muscles for this premise.

I understand the excitement for a show based on some super power kid that can see things nobody else sees but, this is just too much to grasp.

Right now, the best part of the show is the intro song and imagery. I think every episode should have a moment where the boy sees these patterns. Something to ground things on some foundation. But right now, its just him running around aimlessly, but not really. With daddy following him around.

For example, when the boy and the father were in that guys house and the boy was looking at the rose, I think that moment would have been nice to show his perspective of the rose and to then superimpose some sort of white lines or graphical element to show what he sees in that rose and how it is constructed. Like they did with A Beautiful Mind where the main character would look at the world and he would see these patterns emerge as glowing elements. These sort of moments would help me, feel like all this isn't some sort of bad writing chance but rather something that could actually happen in reality.

That's all i have to say about that.
