*Edited

Anyone else pick up on the trend that there's two overwhelming responses to episodes released. The odd-numbered ones get a lot more favor than the ones that are numbered evenly.

*Even - The villains get ahead, more questions are raised, more characters are introduced

*Odd - The good guys get ahead, more questions are answered, plot problems are solved

I'm not going to subscribe to the idea that the even-numbered episodes are worse because I distinctly remember hanging onto the news every day waiting to hear about the show coming back, the dramatic back-and-forth negotiations with the creators and producers. The season was going to be originally just 9 episodes. The amount of stuff we're getting now is doubled. Scenes play longer. And those expanded episodes are cut in half. Even-numbered shows give the true endings to the original scripted installments. 

I can almost guarantee that next week the audiences will be right back on the happy train after Part 13 then pissed off and confused once more after Part 14.

Woops. Sorry about the mix-up. I edited the original post, so it's fixed now.
