The two hour season premiere aired early last night (scoring a 5.9/9) and featured Patricia Arquette's real life husband as guest star playing a past lover. Although I really like this show and have always said that the one hour slot seems to sometimes force story lines into a too fast conclusion, last nights show seemed too long for some reason. The disconnected stories went on too long and the boring ex-lover character had too much of a bad ghost story feel (including the cold air effect and cheesy SFX whenever he showed up). I also found the realistic family focus which has been a highlight of this show seemed less novel after two seasons - Joe's patience is starting to get on my nerves. With no history on the new Detective Scanlon relationship, that storyline lacked any emotion or involvement. In hindsight, maybe the hour slot is what makes the series so good and dragging less exiting stories over two hours loses some of the magic.

I have not watched it yet. I've never seen a single episode but I recorded this one because Thomas Jane was in it. Hope it's worth it.

We just watched this ep. last night and I have to agree that two hours seems long even though we FF through commercials. This show has always entertained but I'm hoping it hasn't jumped the you-know-what. Allison has gone from dreams to talking to ghosts while awake and tag teaming with her daughter to solve mysteries. I don't know how her husband continually puts up with all the sleepless nights.

The first 20 minutes played either silently, or in stereo rather than 5.1 (mainly silent), and flipped between full-frame standard def and widescreen HD. Thanks a pantsload, KNBC.

Finally caught up with the 2-hour season premiere last night. Wow -- I wasn't wearing my contacts, but I totally didn't realize that was Thomas Jane. I think I need that TV upgrade soon. Posted Image

It felt like a very long stretch since last season, and I barely missed it with all the many shows I watch.

Yeah, I got confused too. Thought he was a homeless man. Turns out he's a famous actor playing a homeless man. Posted Image

This last episode felt a lot like Day Break and Groundhog Day.

That was disgusting, start out watching a show you like, and get subjected to a 10 minute commercial for freaking 'Deal or No Deal?' Crass and insulting.

O c'mon now, I'll tell you I was expecting a head in one of the cases. Brent
