The creators have laid it all out for us in Black & White,
which means we don't have to THINK too much about what
we're watching. We are introduced to a typical privileged family, who reside at the patriarch's typical, sprawling estate. Damien is EVIL, Elizabeth is PERFECT, Loren
is a SLUT (which Damien relates to us at the beginning of
the show, as he moves elaborate chess pieces around
the board, with a typical, privileged, arrogance). Some of the secondary characters seem a little
blurry, but their personalities will probably flesh out
as the season progresses and their part in the storyline
is revealed. The series premier was fast-moving, and enjoyable, even though many of the events were predictable.
At times the dialog was very stilted i.e. Elizabeth and
the pilot after the crash; however, this really does add
to the 'campy' feel of the show, which I believe was the
original intent. I will definitely keep watching this
show for a while to see how it develops.
