I can't help it. I gotta see it. Eddie Izzard sells me every time.

Sometimes I update the Dish Network FAQ

AT200, Hopper & 360 via HDMI to Onkyo 505 to basement 42" Westy, Hopper via Comp-over-Cat5 to living room 42" Vizio with a Roku 3, Joey to Toshiba 32" LCD with a Logitech Revue. You want fries with that? Pull up to the 2nd window.

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.
