way down in the hole
So, when I watched the premiere a few weeks ago I said that the Tyra/Landry storyline made me realize that I really did care what happened on this show. Well, I think that since then I've managed to talk myself out of caring, because the second episode didn't make me care about anyone or anything.
It's such a tiny thing, yet it screws with everything. And I say it's tiny, because as I was watching the murder-related scenes today I realized that I'd probably really enjoy this storyline if it wasn't for the "dumping the body" aspect. If Tyra and Landry weren't brought together by a secret, but by being ostracized in a small town where everyone knew what they'd done and had labeled them murderers, I might even have loved it.
You know which were the only scenes I felt were FNL? Coach with the Justin Timberlake fan. And that's just not right. Maybe it's because I just don't care about Matt and Julie and the Swede, or maybe it's because I feel the Taylor family dynamic doesn't work without Coach, or maybe it's just because the murder storyline is sucking all the enjoyment out of the show for me.
Either way, I think it's going to join the pile of shows I'm conducting a little experiment on...
