Forgot About Harper's Island

Watched the premiere of Harper's Island last week, too. The show suffered from the typical rushing-in to get as many story lines and character introductions as possible, but that's hard to do with any new series. I can count on my hand the shows that grabbed me by the short and curlys right off the get go and this is isn't one of them. I will watch more, however, if only because the story line is set for 13 shows, in the BBC tradition of television. Also, the surprisingly creative and gruesome ways of the first two murders. Hamlin's early departure was not surprising. I don't even feel cheated because I didn't even know he was in the cast and I'm used to 'stars' being used as red herrings.
