Dante's Cove is campy, the acting suffers horribly at times, and the backstory is a bit weak... but I can't seem to dislike it.
I got the boxed set of the first two seasons with the "lost" pilot as a Christmas gift. I would say skip the "lost" pilot because its absolutely awful and most of the roles were recast before the first season began... however, it wasn't until I viewed that "lost" pilot that I was actually able to appreciate the vast improvements of the actual first season... which is a masterpiece by comparison. Yes, the "lost" pilot was that bad...
"Lost" is actually here!
network's code, I think, for "It was so incredibly horrible we were too ashamed to air it".
I haven't seen The Lair yet, which I understand to be a quasi-spinoff of Dante's Cove. Anyone else seen it? How bad is that one?
