    Hollywood chose to subvert the mandate and would relgated Kowalski to bit parts and mail call scenes :D

    Not so much.

    Not guest; residents. It's a high-end apartment building, and it seems that to an extent once you sign the lease, you're in forever. There are guest stars, but mostly it's regular and recurring cast. Even the broad outlines of what's going on haven't really come into focus yet; they seem to be playing a very large, long game. Which is unfortunate; at this point I'd say there's almost mo chance that there will be any decent resolution.

    I'd say 666 is a much better show than Last Resort, but then again I'd say most shows are much better than LR, which I have concluded is just plain awful. Even with Andre Bragher.

    This figures. Those are the only two shows from this season we both watch.

    I really enjoy 666. It's different from anything else on, so that makes it right up my alley. I guess all my unresolved questions will end up staying that way. :(

    I read this forum to save valuable time in my life by avoiding tempting looking but awful shows. I'm a big Bragher fan.
    Thank you.

    ABC should simply plan some 13 episode shows. Both the ideas from Last Resort and 666 feel like they could've told a good story had they been timeboxed from the start. 666 has obviously opened up this huge story with a million tentacles that will never get resolved. When I stopped watching Last Resort a few weeks ago it was already reaching insanity in an apparent attempt to slow down the story and fill time.

    Instead of assuming every pilot they pick up is going to run 10 seasons, the networks should instead assume from the start that it is going to fail after a half a season.

    While I don't necessarily agree with your last point, I do agree that one of the big reasons that cable dramas have been better than network dramas is that they have shorter seasons.

    Most cable dramas have a 10 or 12 episode season - so they are able to pack more story and less fluff into each episode. I would prefer to see shorter seasons and more different types of shows on the networks than have them stretch some of the stuff they have over 22 episodes, which often dilutes the product.

    I wanted to like it, but I never really cared for Julie Chen as the host.

    Really enjoying Last Resort, despite the oddity that was the most recent episode. Will definitely watch to the end. Hoping that knowing it's not renewed in enough time will allow them to go out with a bang.

    So everything isn't in the can for Last Resort? I thought there was no way we get a wrap up. Is that wrong?

    I like Last Resort as well, despite it getting a bit convoluted and difficult to follow. They have built in a level of tension in a lot of these episodes that I have not seen since Lost. But since I liked it, I knew it wouldn't last

    I have not seen 666 nor did it look like something I'd be interested in. So no loss for me there.

    No, it's not all in the can yet. Everything I have read said they are going to be able to give it an ending.

    I won't miss 666 that much. It has been good filler but with the return of American Horror Story I no longer need it to fill my horror needs (not that it ever really did). Also, there's only so many times I can comment on the weird proportions of the lead actress.

    Either that, or tic-tac-toe.
