Last night's episode bothered me as well, and I consider myself a loyal fan. I have watched every episode at least twice, and about 80% of them 3 times. I am disappointed in the Sideways direction, because they have taken characters we have known for 6 years and given us an entirely NEW set of strangers in the final season. The sideways isn't a "what if" storyline, (where their lives were the same up until the near missed crash moment, and then how they were affected by not crashing)....... No, their entire past/present and future changed. Who cares about total strangers!!!Originally Posted by MrMet;3824508;
I love Damon and Carlton, but I think they (already knowing the end) are completely out of touch with just how confusing this show is now.
At a point when viewers are anxious to start resolving 6 years of a saga, they instead throw entirely new type of characters/stories (it looks like the exact opposite of who and what we know) that I just don't care about.
Sideways Kate is totally different from crash Kate. Who cares about sideways chick? I have years of emotional history and background on "crash Kate". I want to know what happens to the person I have been watching for the past six years.
They will no doubt find some way to unite the two, but loyal fan that I have been - I am starting to wonder if this new attempt to break boundaries will result in my skipping the season until the finale - when it will be a wrap.
At a time when there is enough distress in life, I need TV to entertain me; I don't need to waste my time with a show that confuses and frustrates.
So, I am at a point where I am not sure what I will do. But, MrMet.... you are not alone!
