When I watch an episode like "Where I Lead Me" I am always a little sad. It seems that the people behind a show are more and more willing to compromise the story for "lower" considerations.
Maybe that sounds naive, but I believe that for people to remain emotionally committed to a show they have to be able to believe in the plausability of the storybuilding up a relationship for 1 1/2 seasons only to shoot it down in one episode just feels wrong.
Gilmore Girls did it, the OC did it and countless other shows did it and many fans stopped being fans and just tuned in occasionally.
I wanna believe that there are writers and creators out there who commit to the story they want to tell a hundred percent without wavering due to "other" motives.
It is much better to have a legacy of 2 great seasons than of 1 good one and 3 or 4 mediocre ones.
