After the mid-season 4 episode 9 break: The show has become too confident in itself and is no longer enjoyable to watch. Too many new characters, and too many episodes concentrated on one or two of them, we don't see every character in every episode. I know the producers love doing this sort of thing, but it is not enjoyable. The whole plot with Randall's family and City Council is gone. The show is just trying to do too much in one hour, and it doesn't work. Original Review:The show is critically acclaimed. Everyone loves it. Admittedly, the show is very well written and the acting is excellent. Season one was quite good. The problem is, the audience is being held hostage waiting to find out how Jack dies. We thought we might find out at the beginning of Season 2, but now we have to watch very little happen each week waiting for the answer. There will be a cliff-hanger at the end of season 2. So we may not even find out until Season 3 ... The show is still good, it just does not live up to its reputation.

I watched the first season and felt like the show was dragging on and on. Maybe I will give it another shot. I did love the triplets birth and the stories involving their differences but similarities. Like when Mandy Moore was asking help for her black son's hair. The show did give me a sense of dual perspective in that aspect.
