Episode 1 seems a slow start

The writers don't seem to care whether we're drawn into the show or not. The characters seem bland, typical and they mostly tend to blend together. There's an Alice *and* a Rose, for example, two such typical names that one tends to forget which is which. Not much happens for a long time either. Hope this gets better.
