Sunday night's series finale, it's obvious, would have made a much better premiere than the pilot did. It was probably the show's best hour.
The problem with these exaggerated and overwhelming subplots is that the show would have benefited from purely refined simplicity. I am not saying that the show should narrowly focus on April or that the plotline should be completely centred around her, but if the viewers are going to root for her, we must, at the very least, know what we are rooting for.
