Any show that starts out with half of the boy scout troop getting killed in the first three minutes is alright with me...
I liked it!

There were brief flashes of brilliance, but overall it was a disjointed mess. I suspect NBC was pushing for a straight-up comedy (something like Desperate Housewives with fangs) and the producers wanted something far darker (like Dexter) and what they ended up with was a mess.

Too bad, it could have been crazy good.

...then ends with killing a scout master. Bit much that Herman then takes on the idenity of that scout master in that he was wearing the uniform.

Yeah...they sure did.

The original series would be a tough act to follow as a series. Success tends to be all about the right casting and characters. They got it right the first time...so any followup is inevitably going to be a challenge.
