'course part of the problem is that we're in a society that, while on one hand we've grown to like serialized drama, on the other, we're not patient enough to invest more than a week or two into anything. So it's a hard mountain to climb getting a new show to stick, or getting people to watch long enough for the show to grow and improve.
(especially on NBC)
I would LOVE a serialized drama and much like Game of Thrones for example, I think other people love it, too.
The problem is that J.J. Abrams, through LOST, has ruined the "high-concept" serial. I just don't trust him and I don't think this will last because most people I speak to don't trust him, either.
