Thanks to CBS Drama, I am watching the show again. The early episodes of the season are very good (though Claudia's sending away was botched) but while Adam was introduced in an intriguing way, and the tension with Blake and Fallon was set up well (even Krystle had a good role to play), Adam's instant transformation to a villain ("drugs"--please) is as laughable as Alexis' instant transformation to a finance wiz coming up (just as she was talking aloud after Cecil's will she was admitting she "knows nothing about these things"). Also, I hadn't noticed how painfully bad John James is as an actor even that early. I thought that was a later thing. Now I am thinking they HAD to write Emma Samms' Fallon as a hausfrau to match his ridiculous facial spasms.
