who, when I complained that my poems (this was high school english class - the last time I have ever willingly written a poem) started well, but that they never ended with a bang - just sort of petered out. What to do? I asked him...

He replied that I might never finish a poem. Now whether or not this was an accurate assessment of my talents as a poet, or a self-fulfilling prophecy, I have no idea - but it is quite true. I have never finished a poem.....unless, perhaps, certain drabbles could qualify as poetry.

I wonder if Surnow finds himself in the same place - starting out with a bang, but not actually having a resolution or end point in mind....so his shows don't have any particular direction? But aren't quite soap opera enough (by which I mean the multiple interweaving stories and large cast of characters, not necessarily anything else) to sustain themselves under their own momentum?
