Agreed! I dug the vampires and I liked the take on the classic vampire story but the alien story didn't grab my attention as much. You are so right, it had such promise but all of a sudden it was over and I feel there were unanswered questions. I did like Leslie Grossman in both features.
I hope so too! When it is 'on' it is on point! Other times....less so. Also, I wonder if it will bother me that it is based in NYC. Sometimes knowledge of a place so intimately takes me out of a show (like, how are they downtown when they just had coffee or clearly it is Toronto.)
Edited: Just watched the first episode and I'm loving it. Umm...also I am a pushover for Patti Lapone in a tiara. Also love the shout out to my favorite part of Central Park... the Ramble. I found this article from NY Magazine, but warning, it has mention of the F slur and talks and describes violence against our gay community, I am only adding it here because it describes how it was in 1978 when the Ramble was depicted in the first episode: nymag.com/news/features/47179/
I love that the article mentions birders, because of them I know what the tupelo field is mentioned in the article! I used to be so scared growing up of Central Park and now I'm there all the time, but it took me a while to get over my fear.
