I had no idea what to expect from this series. I had mentioned to my husband that we should DVR it, and then later he said we should DVR it…like it was his idea. LOL. Anyway, I thought it would be a little weird…but I had no idea.

This couple buys a house that’s apparently haunted, because you get to see glimpses of ghosts from time to time. But I find the characters on the show to be weirder than the haunting. There’s some nudity in the first show of the series, especially with Dylan McDermott walking around naked. I’ve always thought he was really cute, but I’ve never thought of him as sexy. I still don’t. There’s a neighbor who’s older, and she has a Down Syndrome daughter. This woman is very strange. I still can’t decide if she’s just weird or if she’s something supernatural. There’s a psycho teenage boy, a housekeeper who looks different to the husband than she does to the wife (I won’t spoil things by telling you how it’s different), and various other unusual characters. I’m not going to say any more because I don’t do spoilers.

This is the thing. As repulsed as I was about parts of this show, I couldn’t stop watching it. I sat through both episodes we had recorded, mesmerized. I’ll say the same thing about this show that I’ve said about True Blood. It’s like a train wreck…you don’t WANT to look, but you can’t help it. I can’t wait to see what happens in the next episode. One important thing I’ve learned…do NOT watch this show while you’re eating. I made that mistake.

Hello, fellow ROW80ers! How is everyone doing?

As of last night, I was 5,332 words over my goal of 500 words per day. I should be at 10,000, but am at 15,332. I haven’t written yet today, since I always write in the evenings. I should get even more ahead because I have some ideas for the next scene that will be more than 500 words worth.

I’m a little concerned about in what direction this story is going. There was some violence in the last scene that I didn’t know was going to happen. Some of it was close to being a little “unusual”, and I don’t know where that came from. I haven’t written anything like that since I wrote Starfane. But the story will go where it goes. I usually let my characters do what they want to do. But it’s going way beyond a PG rating at this point, at least in my opinion.
