finally caught up with the premier on dvr. love the show, but i hope the pacing was just because they had to introduce so many plot points in 2 hours. it really emphasized the soap-opera-yness. 5 minutes of this exposition, then big twist. 5 minutes of that exposition and drama moment. the thing i liked (as i remember it) about season 1 was the way it moved so slowly and luxuriously, you knew it was soap opera, but you had time to settle in to each moment.
