Ah, I see. Well then, yes, I have missed the point if that is it. I am probably much more accustomed to watching real crime so, for me anyway, it's all about the crime. I'm kind of bad about being a 'bottom line' and 'just the facts' person, more than a 'give me all the drama' person. That's where I probably don't fit into tv as well these days. Maybe in this case, they could have made these main characters more likable from the get-go so that I would have felt more invested in them. In that vein, yeah I would agree with you that this should have started in the beginning, with the fundamental character information and had bits and pieces throughout the episodes. As they did it, I found my self bored and completely uninvested. If they patch up what seems like a hot mess with this show I would be interested in another season with its own crime. I will probably still be more interested in the crime than the personal lives of the investigators/cops/etc, so that is probably why real crime is more where I belong. Except for Dexter (best.show.ever), this is about the only crime DRAMA I've watched in a zillion years.
