Should have been on another network!Rating: 3 likes, 4 dislikes
CBS was never cracked up to have a show like this. American Gothic is a terrific television series, canceled far too soon, and sadly mishandled by the network during its run (episodes aired out of order, entire episodes unaired, etc). Unfortunately this is also the case with the dvd set.
Taken in the long view, the show is remarkable in it's subtlety and intrigue, despite certain poor episodes. The writing, acting, and directing are all outstanding. You'll never look at Gary Cole the same way again. Or, for that matter, Shaun Cassidy - who conceived and produced the show, along with Sam Raimi.
Anyway, I would suggest this series to anyone. Pick up the dvds and try to watch them in the proper order then it will make a lot more sense.
