I love this show, but the writing sucks. Hopefully, it will all come together soon. And they keep introducing new characters without fully fleshing out the ones that they already have. What is the relationship between Constance and the maid? Why is the maid split into two people? What's rubber man's deal? And where was he this week? Why is Dennis O'Hare seen only outside the house? Is he in on it with the other ghosts?

Then the new people Who is the young man that Constance was with? I think he was a ghost, but still not sure. The mistress is going to cause problems. And she seemed like one of Ben's patients rather than a student (homegirl was crazy!).

I loved Dennis O'Hare's snarky comment: (paraphrased) "I may have set fire to my family, but I wasn't a cheater." HA!

I guess it points to the state of their marriage, but it's surprising that Dylan McDermott never said anything like, "I can't believe you hired such a young maid after all we've been through," to which his wife would respond, "say what now?"

Or when Jessica Lange said that they go way back why didnt that raise an eyebrow by him.

He did kind of. He just said "You surprise me" and shook his head. I guess it would have ruined the story if he had said, wow shes really hot.

Don't they ever lock the doors? How is it that the neighbor's daughter gets into the house at night when they're sleeping. Or the wierd lady the just walks right in with cupcakes? Or the psycho friend of the daughter?

How did that trio get in to the house?

I think that is part of the story and will be revealed in time. I think the scene in the basement with the maid, Tate, and the neighbor kind of revealed that they all have some kind of relationship with the house whether they be ghost or real people.

That's what I thought. I think they're ghosts.

I *think* the stolen phone was a cell phone?

We've got an alarm system, ours is monitored which required that we have a hard line phone put in .... if the system wasn't a monitored one (not connected to 911 or the police), they wouldn't have a 911 button on the keypad (?) since they might be a "cell phone only" house? But that wouldn't make sense either since he seems to running a business out of it?

I think so too... the scene totally reminded me of the scene in "The Others" where it is revealed that they are ghosts...

It seems to be part "rosemary's baby", part "amityville horror" and that intruder scene with the 3 people in masks definitely reminded me of "the strangers"

Good tv show so far...
