"Trolling nature" huh. Well, let's see, I guess that means at the very least that I have enough courage in my convictions to be consistent. I initially stated after seeing a very disappointing Torv (whom I never even heard of before) on Letterman , that I found her neither attractive nor interesting, and had concerns about the series as a result. I've also noted (along with quite a few others) that so far the series seemed to be going through growing pains (i.e. the pilot) which is not uncommon this early on, and would reserve any final judgment until it had at least 3-4 eps under its belt, or I found it to be such unmitigated crap that I could no longer sit through it. I haven't changed my position on that either.
Actually It seems like I'm giving the show as much, if not more, of a fair chance than you are, as you're not willing to even offer Torv a passing
grade at this juncture, or take any kind of meaningful stand on it. Conversely, I was among the first to sing the praises of Walter. What were you doing?
So given a choice, I think I'd rather be an honest "troll", than someone who shows up late to the party and equivocates every issue to death.

Having lived in Back Bay through most of the 70's and 80's, I tend to doubt you feel any more connected than I do. Boston is a great town with many interesting aspects, but the great scenery is still not going to overcome a poor script.
As for this convo, I think I will end it here, as I said before it looks like you have already made you mind up...
Actually I haven't made my mind up yet. Just seems some here would rather believe that than question this show's many shortcomings.

I never really understood the sorts of comments that someone has "given up" on the show. Why would we care, in this particular topic? Are our watching habits somehow contingent on what other people decide to do? I'll watch what pleases me, and others can watch whatever they feel like.
Wait a sec, weren’t you the ‘Parallax View’ conspiracy theorist from a page or 2 back??
Yes, you’re right, its true, I and my counterparts from Remulac are here to FORCE you to entertain thoughts of sedition and the like. Not even your pyramid hat can prevent us from taking over your mind in the name of our distant planet --NBC. The FALSE is out there.
Just curious, but is it mere coincidence that your AVS handle is the same name of a cartoon character who is made up of...never mind
Chance favors the prepared mind
