Shows I have dropped so far this season and why?

Published November 14, 2012 by tiradical20s

666 Park Avenue (ABC)

While it had a promising outlook, the plot just made no sense and the characters/storylines were strange and somewhat offbeat from what they were trying to portray.  I would consider going back to rewatch the show over the summer if it gets picked up for a second season.  Sets were damaged during Hurricane Sandy, so who knows what is going to happen to this show? Ratings have also steadily declined and have not picked up.

 

Last Resort (ABC)

While I liked the first episode of this show, I decided that I would get bored quickly by it.  I have a hard time staying with shows of this nature and I figured I would quit while I was ahead.  Ratings have declined and ABC only ordered 2 additional scripts for it (giving it 13 episodes)….I would say I probably made the right decision.

 

Elementary (CBS)

This show has done surprisingly well in my opinion.  I found the first episode to be extremely difficult to watch and Lucy Liu as a modern day Watson was just too unbelievable to even try out.  The show has steady ratings and has received a full season order and EVEN a superbowl episode.  This show is not under consideration for me to pick up if it is renewed.

 

Made in Jersey (CBS)

Do I even really need to explain myself here?  First casualty of the 2012-2013 series.  Need I say more?

 

Vegas (CBS)

I was flat out bored the second I saw Dennis Quaid in a cowboy hat. The show is doing quite well with good ratings.  I will not consider watching this show again even if it is renewed.

 

Arrow (The CW)

I do enjoy this show, but for some reason it is very difficult for me to watch.  I would reconsider watching this show if it is picked up for a second season over the summer, but right now I don’t have time for it.

 

Beauty and the Beast (The CW)

I was shocked when I heard this show was given a full season.  It is borderline terrible.  I might consider watching it again, because I forget why I hated it so much (besides Kristin Kreuk playing an unbelievable cop) but for now I definitely don’t have time for amateur hour.

 

The Mob Doctor (Fox)

I gave this show a nice try, but I knew it was time to stop watching when I was falling asleep during the episodes.  I will not consider watching this show again over the summer if it is given a very unlikely second season.

 

Revolution (NBC)

I watched a lot of this show and recently decided nothing was happening in it.  I started falling asleep during the episodes and I knew it was time to move on.  I would consider watching this again over the summer if it is picked up.

 

Animal Practice (NBC)

My least favorite television pilot ever.  I did something I don’t usually do and didn’t even watch the entire pilot.

 

 

 

Some updates on my repertoire and shows for the week of October 22-28

Published October 22, 2012 by tiradical20s

I am officially dropping 666 Park Avenue because I don’t get it….possibly to be picked up later if IT gets picked up

I am also officially dropping Beauty and the Beast because it’s the same old shit, extremely disappointed about it.  Again, I could change my mind if it gets picked up.

ALSO:

The new season of The Lying Game begins after Pretty Little Liars returns for good on January 8th! Yay!!!! Also, Switched at Birth will be back for season 2 on January 7th along with Bunheads (the worst show probably ever).

666 Park Avenue Season 1, Episode 2: Murmurations

Published October 8, 2012 by tiradical20s

 

Jane, after exploring a guest that left the hotel without warning, discovers a huge infestation of starlings behind the hotel walls and calls an exterminator.

Brian cheats on his wife with that slut from across the way….nice, Brian, way to be.

Jane also has dreams about a murder that has occurred in the hotel, only to realize her dreams are reality.

 

Okay, I need to say my piece on this show because I think it has SO much potential:

It needs to be amped up BIG TIME.  I think this show could be something great………it could actually be the next American Horror Story if it wanted to be, but right now there is a factor to it that is so dull….I think it needs more danger!

Right now it is relying heavily on sexuality and played down situations instead of really going for it.  I think if it gets the back 10, which I am pretty sure it will, then the writers should really take this into consideration and write something a little more interesting.

666 Park Avenue Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

Published October 1, 2012 by tiradical20s

 

First Impression:

Looks cool.  Love the name of it.  I definitely think ABC needs to add a paranormal drama to their stellar line up.

 

Last Impression:

Significantly intrigued.  Not entirely sure what is going on.  Terry O’Quinn is making me have MAJOR Lost flashbacks and that is sort of throwing me off a bit.  I love how all the recycled actors/actresses from other shows are in this

  • Clay from One Tree Hill
  • That girl from The Finder
  • Terry O’Quinn.
  • Vanessa Williams from Ugly Betty and Desperate Housewives

I’m sure there are more too, I just wasn’t paying attention.

I think this show could be really cool with some awesome plot twists and a kick ass storyline!

4/5 stars
