Shows I have dropped so far this season and why?

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.

Last Resort Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

First Impression:

Not my kind of show.  What is this, LOST with army warfare???

 

Last Impression:

Still not sure if this is my kind of show, but it is certainly well acted.  The whole situation surrounding this show (Americans firing at and attempting to kill their own people, a conspiracy theory come to life) really freaks me out.  I am not sure how long I am going to give this show, but I will at least give it one more episode to figure out if I actually like it or not.  Right now I am on the brink.
