Re: When They Cry - Seagulls style
The real problem with DTB is that they really can't make up their mind the kind of series they're trying to make. It is either an action series, in which they failed, or it is a sci-fi conspiracy series with headfucky elements, in which case they also failed because to succeed at this actually requires some idea, as writers, as to what exactly is going on. And for two seasons, now, the writers have demonstrated a grand ability to just make stuff up with no better idea than the audience as to whether it will all fit together. BONES does this sort of thing all the time, but at least with shows like Rah-Xephon, Eureka Seven, Xam'd etc there is some indication that they know what they're doing.
