Also - just occurs to me, but I'm slow - is the birth of the anti-Christ being timed to coincide with - well - you know?
I can believe the concept of "new cast, new house" next season (but how do we retain Constance?) because offing every year's cast and putting them in the basement results in a very crowded house.
On the other hand, if every season is a dark as this one - and it's why I am not at all pleased with the death of Violet - the only reason to watch is to enjoy another family come to grief with no hope visible anywhere. Now, life itself may seem that way, but if we need to delude ourselves with hope in our daily lives, we also need our entertainment to bear out that delusion somewhat. Otherwise, it's gonna be - what's the point? nothing's gonna work out. why go on? why watch?
Lame, lame, and lamer. (a) I don't think I've ever seen a lamer dinosaur fight. We should have been seeing glimpses of them all along while Taylor and Mirra have their entirely unbelieveable conversation. And then a couple of arrows and a little fire and they're gone? Really? (b) We should have been seeing suspicious stuff about Skye all along too. Not enough to convince us that she's the one, but something more interesting than has been shown so far. (c) A humongous turtle lays an egg that produces offspring the size of a bite of kitten? I thought a better scene would have been to have momma turtle swallow little whatsitsname in one big gulp. Yeah. Gotten mean in my old age.
You might well ask why I bother to watch this show. Well, partly it's my version of watching a train wreck. The real reason is that when all else has been watched and my daughter has taken over the living room and it's the only thing even slightly fun to watch, if only to mock, I switch on the On Demand in my room. There's all kinds of ways to enjoy a show. And a good reason to criticize them would be to encourage better writing.
