Anyone watch the premiere of this show last week? I forgot to, but I just watched on hulu. The ads have been relelntless and a bit annoying, but I was hoping this could be this year's "Harper's Island", with perhaps a less corny ending. I was surprised to find that it is a really good show...sadly, good in the vein of a zillion other shows I've followed in ABC's 10pm Wednesday slot that always get canceled too soon, but for now, I'll be watching.
The show was created by the team that did "October Road" a few years ago - it was a really understated show that I think I may have been the only person watching. One of the main actors from that show is on this one, plus Steven Weber, Amy Acker (that alone would get me to watch), the impeccable Sam Neill, Jerry from ER (Abraham Benrubi), and.... Tom Friendly from LOST! The actor, MC Gainey, is such a chameleon I didn't recognize him, but his voice is so distinctive. it was driving me nuts who he was until about halfway through the ep when I placed him.
