After the critically acclaimed first season, the show was hit with massive ExecutiveMeddling. [[spoiler: Andrea]], one of the original seven, was written out of the show despite [[spoiler: David [=McNoriss=]']] arc being closely tied to [[spoiler: her]]. Massive CharacterDerailment was given to each surviving member of the cast. But the final nail is that in this season it lost the RashomonStyle format that the show was famous for.


* HappyBirthdayToYou: According to the DVD commentary, the reason Fearless sings "I can see Clearly Now" in "Fearless" instead of "Happy Birthday to you" is that "I Can See Clearly Now" cost less to license.

Boomtown is a crime drama that aired on NBC for one 18 episode season and a second 6 episode season. Lasted from September, 2002 to December, 2003. It follows a crime from the point of view of the 7 main cast members and anyone else whose POV is important to the episode. This series provides gripping drama, three dimensional leads, some pretty good mystery plots, and all it asks in return is that you pay attention. Which is probably why it only persisted in its original form for the first season.
