I just watched "The Gates" and it looks like it has a lot of potential. There's that supernatural air, mystery and lots of subplots. "Scoundrels" before it was pretty funny. Also just finished "The Tudors" tonight, but I'll have to wait until next year for "The Borgia", which is a family I know very little about.
Jeff Jensen wrote a nine-page article, recently, but I haven't been able to finish it. It suggests that the Island should be considered a character and that the whole show was told from the its perspective. I agree with that, but I just haven't finished it.
