    yes, it’s a shame really, because i was quite into it at the start and would have been fairly happy to accept it much in the same way as i did The Chicago Code for example, as a beautifully filmed and cliche ridden but fun thing to watch. Playing count the cliches can be fun. However not saying who dunnit at the end is more than somewhat of a disappointment.

    Yes, i was a bit gutted to find out originally, but i would much rather have known as you say. People in America were furious! and i don’t blame them. Surely it’s against all accepted murder Drama convention?

    Playing spot the deliberately subverted cliche is also fun but ultimately a bit tiresome since it seems to say hey look at us we’re so very avant-garde you know…Which can work if a Drama is good enough to hold that however i’m not sure this one is. i wonder if this non-ending is such an attempt at being oh so very clever and different?

    nb. i’m still waiting for Linden to break out of her turgid torpor, she did briefly a while back, became almost animated..
