That and you could find better acting from mid-90s History Channel dramatizations than on that show.
Ya both would have been way better if they were originally written to be 1-3 seasons each with a clear beginning and end already planned.
Granted, I still liked Lost at the end. There was a lot of garbage in the middle, but there were still some amazing episodes as the years went on. I thought it did a good job to pick back up once the ending was announced. Dexter is looking to follow the same mold. Awesome beginning, pretty rough in the middle but (crosses fingers) the last two seasons are looking promising.
I mean I'm no writer, but it seems to me like the middle will always be tough in those shows. The beginning gets to introduce everything and everything is fresh. The end you can start doing whatever you want to do to lead you to the finish line. But in the middle you are just dragging your feet basically.
