Upon reflection, here's the problem I have with this series: It is both poorly written and popular. If it were just poorly written but not popular, it would burn out on its own. If it were well written but unpopular, I would enjoy it while it lasted, but lament it when it was canceled. If it were well written and popular, I'd enjoy it and enjoy talking about it with other fans. But the fact that it is poorly written and popular frustrates me, because its popularity means it serves as a model for future shows, and is probably dooming us to a rash of Domealikes as other networks try to replicate the lightning-in-a-bottle (witness the number of LOSTalikes we still get, Siberia being the most recent). I don't want other shows to use a poorly written one as a model, though. I want them to use a well-written one.
