The only reason this show isn't rated lower is because I didn't sit through more than one episode. It appears to be trying to work supernatural elements into a story arc, but the one episode I saw introduced a typical, cliched soap opera story with the most unbearable characters this side of a sitcom. Maybe I'll sit through it again when I'm in a more forgiving mood. Maybe the show really is better. But the episode I saw was so bad that it may be awhile. The redeeming feature is the cast, which includes Dylan McDermott, Connie Britton, and Jessica Lange.
