....and he says...with the onset of flashforward
'they're not shows, they're puzzles'
yes...yes charlie, yes yes. so obvious and simple but so fucking true
24...dexter...lost...flashforward...prison break...etc etc etc
this is exactly what i hate....i don't want to have to solve a 40 hour+ puzzle with no characters or script to fall back on.
you know when i might want to solve a puzzle?.....when it clocks in under six hours
see some films and, one of the best bits of british telly in the last few years, criminal justice.
a puzzle sure....but only five hours and over five consecutive nights....the script crackled and the acting sparkled. (and it starts again this week)
i don't have the patience for these...even in boxset form...i got to episode 18 of prison break series one and just gave the fuck up.
anyway...yeah. that's that. i do no want to solve anything for an extended period of time.
