I had never seen it. It is fantastic. Saw the pilot on three separate occasions but that meant never the intro—now that I’ve been gifted the first season I’ve seen it five times. How perfect is that? Showing her growing up and spending her whole life watching extensive media coverage of horrible things happening to people who could have been people she loved. Her fierce desire to keep that from happening again. Its very clear effect on her. What kind of effect did you think that was having on us? Did you think it would pass us by and leave us unscathed? Did you think we would take it lying down?
(Aside: Do you know how many people my age I have met from this state who know what the USS Cole was? None. My forgiveness is slow in coming. When they mention it, in the intro, I feel that little gulf open between myself and the people here, and I bristle.)
