Well, that's what I kind of posted. I couldn't help thinking of Lester Bangs in Almost Famous when he meets William Miller (a.k.a. Cameron Crowe) - "Good-looking people don't have any spine. Their art never lasts. They get the girls, but we're smarter." Beauty-ism? Perhaps, but it boils down to the tone the series is going to take. Does it want to be a serious thriller in the vein of Homeland, or does it want to be something else? Maybe I'm comparing her performance to Jodi Foster (Silence of the Lambs) and Claire Danes (Homeland) and finding it wanting in comparison. Is that fair? Probably not, but that is kind of what is rolling around in my noggin after watching the first episode. She isn't bad, but she just feels a little out of her depth (which admittedly the character is supposed to be at this stage of the game in some sense.) - Walter.
