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.

The Mob Doctor Season 1, Episode 3: Protect and Serve

Published October 3, 2012 by tiradical20s

 

Grace tends to two sets of people of a drunk driving accident: the victims AND the driver (a cop).

A little girl was killed 😦

AND OMG MORETTI IS ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Franco and Grace’s story is very interesting.

I didn’t like this episode as much, I may drop it in the near future….it’s sad because I really do think it could have potential.

The Mob Doctor Season 1, Episode 2: Family Secrets

Published September 24, 2012 by tiradical20s

Guys, it’s official.  I legitimately like this show.

Of course, I can’t really give a reason why I like it, considering it completely goes against my rule of “no doctor shows!!!”

I don’t even like Jordana Spiro that much.  I like her character, Grace, a lot, but I do NOT like Jordana Spiro.  Like, who names their kid Jordana and lives to see another day??? Honestly, people. Do you want your kid to get beat up in high school?

Right, so, in this episode, we see Grace trying to save the live of a convicted murderer and dealing with a “meet and greet” with Brett and her mom.  Obvs, Grace misses her dinner date but saves a life.  Oh, that Grace.

Looking forward to next week and fingers crossed for better ratings!!!

The Mob Doctor Season 1, Episode 1: Pilot

Published September 18, 2012 by tiradical20s

 

First Impression:

God this looks stupid.  I give it 1 episode to cancellation.  And Jordana Spiro is in it.  She is almost as toxic to pilots as Joanna Garcia is.

 

Last Impression:

For those of you who follow this blog, you know I do not like doctor dramas because I find them all to be the same.  I didn’t even want this on my repertoire, but since I didn’t have something to watch between Bones and Revolution, I gave it a shot.

Shockingly, I did not hate it.  I didn’t love it, don’t get me wrong, but I will definitely give it a few more episodes of watching at least!

It’s interesting.  A doctor trying to save her brother by doing dirty deeds for the mob.  She also seems to have a pretty interesting life…a doctor who doesn’t play by the rules but does BUT DOESN’T.  It’s cool.

I give it a 3.5/5 stars.
