Spoiler if you have not watched The Watch!

*********************************************************************************

I am watching The Watch and honestly they have lost me. Who really cares about any of these people? A perfectly good story really needs this whole subplot? The constant emphasis on minor characters, now the men of The Watch, and made-up and drawn out conflicts at the expense of through story, seems really odd to me as a TV watcher not just as a reader of the books. Everyone’s lives are under threat (an artificial one created in the writers’ room) and then we have a pause for intermission, a nice domestic chat about how it feels to be pregnant, this from the books. (This is a strong scene and Jenny is excellent.) Honestly, I just don’t care anymore.
