Whoo-hoo! Called it!



I'm sure it's crass of me to say it, but I'm feeling a little crass tonight. I was right. And no, that entry was not backdated. Not that it would have been hard to....

No, seriously, I had Beaver for the bus bomber, and while I didn't put together all the pieces (and I didn't guess the plane thing), I was pretty on the money.

For instance, I had forgotten that Beaver was connected to Curly and I had no memory at all of him doing fx for student films.

And poor Mac. And poor Veronica, discovering that she really had been raped in the pilot after all. I guess if they were going to retcon Beaver as the abuse victim and killer, they had to deal with that part of the backstory somehow. Still, I worry that the show is getting too insular, too self-referential. I don't want it to fall into the Farscape trap of carrying around this huge interlocking story line that prevents new viewers from becoming regulars. The ratings are already too low; word of mouth can't increase the audience if new audience members can't tell what's going on and who is who and why she is doing what to him and what shared history are they all hinting at obliquely.

Assuming the show is picked up for a third season (It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be. It will be.) If it isn't picked up, that was a suitable ending for the series.

DAMN! that's a good show.
