While we've been busy writing about all the big network premieres, Showtime quietly released what has the potential of ending up as the best show of this fall. It certainly had the most captivating and tightly written pilot of any new series this season (sorry, Hart of Dixie). If the subsequent episodes are as good as the first one, it will definitely be worth the price of subscription.
Evangeline Lilly has said in the past that she doesn't plan on continuing her acting career after Lost ends, and with the show's final season premiering tonight (!!), that story has resurfaced, and she's sticking to it. Which is perfectly understandable; she's made her money, she's not passionate about acting, and she did the respectable thing by not quitting in the middle of it when she was somehow miserable in Hawaii. (I'm not a Kate fan, but at least she didn't Rob Lowe or Mandy Patinkin the show by throwing a tantrum and leaving prematurely.) So happy trails to Evangeline Lilly after May. These people should really get inspired and do the same.
