What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

Part 1 was intriguing and was good enough to get you to go back for more... but I found that while watching Part 2 I started multi-tasking, and that is never a good sign if a show can't hold my attention in the second hour. But now I've already invested in Parts 1 and 2 that I have no choice but to see the conclusion in Part 3. I really hoped that Part 3 would change my mind about this mini-series, but it was just as "blah" as Part 2.
The worst thing about this was that "Barbie" from Under the Dome plays a prominent role and I don't seem to like that actor's portrayal of any character yet I can pinpoint the reason. The best thing about this is that it has brought about interest in the book, which is a great story but apparently hard to put on screen.
