    It felt as though my stomach had been pulled up into my throat as the floor dropped away from my feet. The prickling sensation in my skin was a wonder in the brief moment before I realized I was falling. Then my toes, my fingers and my eyes screamed in...

    first half of 10.5 last night. I'm not going to start ranting over how much they got 'technically wrong.' The only reason I watched the thing was to see what they got wrong. I did not even know anything about the show, or even that is was being aired...
