And Cell was in 2006.
I liked some of the stuff the show was angling towards exploring, but I don't think it executed it in a way that most people wanted to watch. And I'm an avid sci fi reader, so I had examples at mental hand of some of the concepts being done much better, which didn't help.
Having a (literally) tabula rasa main character you CAN'T empathize or identify with because she doesn't really exist as a character, and so has nothing to latch onto (until they dredged her original back up towards the end of the first season, and all the synthesis 'composite' stuff along with) was one of the major execution fails, for me. That, and using Eliza Dushku to try and act distinct multiple personalities every week was kind of like trying to use a sock in place of a Swiss army knife.
