How about some romance and love in watching a loved one struggle and fight their way back to health? Being drawn closer by tragedy? Losing a business and building it back up?
Do you honestly think with Higley writing that we're going to see any of those?

I understand if you don't like unrealistic storylines, but the difference is that in JER's stories, outlandish as they were, we did see ideas like buildup, fallout, impact on relationships, impact on the characters' daily lives. The premise of this story may be much more realistic than those, but I have a feeling that the execution of the story will not.
I agree! While JER's possession story was more than just a tad fantastical but it contained all the right elements as you said. When the writing is good, covering all the bases it should, then I can suspend belief a bit. Today we have no buildups, we rarely see the fallout or impact, except to hear about it in passing or later learn that it happened offscreen. How on earth can the viewer become invested in something they don't get to see, that they don't experience right along with the characters?

I so miss those voice overs, when they used to let us in on what a character was thinking or feeling. These days it's just a guess as to what the characters think or feel and tomorrow that will change without rhyme or reason.

Higley won't do this autism story justice or any other story for that matter, she simply does not have talent. The woman couldn't write herself out of a wet paper bag.
