How to Kill a Promising Show in a Few Quick Steps

almosthuman

I’m looking at you Fox. I see The Powers That Be haven’t learned their mistakes from the late great Firefly. Last night’s episode of Almost Human was good but was something about the show was a little off. So, a reliable source (my co-worker) told me the show is being shown out of order. The order has been the Pilot, Episode 5, Episode 7 and Episode 6. The studios need to learn to trust its audience and let them see the development of the characters and the building of plots as the showrunners intended. The fastest way to kill a show is to broadcast it out of order in the hopes of luring in a audience with sexy action but inadvertently turn it into a jumbled mess.

TV Addicted? – What to Watch This Fall

Almost Human

“In a not-so-distant future, human cops and androids partner up to protect and serve.”

Karl Human and Michael Ealy! With the addition of Lili Taylor, Almost Human is headed by a great cast. The creator, J.H. Wyman has great credentials (Fringe) and am excepting great things from this show.

Brooklyn Nine Nine


“A diverse group of detectives at the very edge of New York City.”

I’ll watching anything with Andre Braugher.

Tomorrow People

“The story of several young people from around the world who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers, including the ability to teleport and communicate with each other telepathically.”

Tomorrow people based on a 40 year old British show. Mmm, I am on the fence with this one. The first strike, It’s on CW. The second strike is that source material is so old that it may appear dated.

Dracula

“Series introduces Dracula as he arrives in London, posing as an American entrepreneur who maintains that he wants to bring modern science to Victorian society. In reality, he hopes to wreak revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier”

Vampires tales never get old especially one geared towards adults. No sparkling vampires here, only Jonathan Rhys Meyers looking dandy as an American Vampire in London. Series produced in conjunction with the BBC so at the very least it should look sumptuous.

There is a whole host of new shows coming slated for the coming months and although TV has under gone a renaissance in the last few years, not a lot of shows are exciting this season.
