    Only three episodes to go, so they really have to pick up the speed now and not use more time on slow character development and talk. Less Ida Silver and Janet what's-her-name and more Brady gearing up to do something bad with the good guys (including Holly) on his tail. And no more long scenes with Brady's mom, she's supposed to die and exit the story, as great as Kelly Lynch is. Jack Bender is somewhat right about the show (and book) being mostly about characters, but they overdo it. Let's get down to business and pave the way nicely for Finders Keepers next year (or thereabouts).

    Nothing is changing now.

    It's all "in the can".

    It is time to accelerate the action, and eliminate a character or two.

    Just saw the latest episode. Now we're talking. Not that I disliked Mary-Louise Parker (how can you dislike her?) but now the action has accelerated. Justine Lupe is so cute as Holly. I wasn't familiar with her before (Justine, that is ) but she's great.

    It had noticed a couple of episodes ago that it was moving really slow. I know which characters are going to die (obviously because I've read the book but they kept showing it in the upcoming previews as well) but they kept just hanging around. Should be interesting to see how they squeeze the rest of the story into only 3 episodes.

    Also, has anyone else noticed that the scenes that play during the opening credits change every week?
    Hearts are tough, she said, most times hearts don't break, and I'm sure that's right . . . but what about then? What about who we were then? What about hearts in Atlantis?

    Yes, they also did that with the 11.22.63 series

    I'm pretty hopeful the series will get picked up for a second season (and potentially third at the same time), so I wonder if they'll keep the name.
