This program has little of the "charms" of a procedural and all of its faults. The dialogue is chock full of meaningless acronyms that are at times confounding. Patricia Arquette does her best to renounce her recent Oscar by seeming to be lost in the wrong "medium"--the acting is banal at best. Oh well, this might save us from CSI Podunk!… Full Review »
Two words; painful pandering (take that Stan Lee). Clearly the network and writers have no skill if they have to stoop to demagoguery. Poor DCTwo words; painful pandering (take that Stan Lee). Clearly the network and writers have no skill if they have to stoop to demagoguery. Poor DC has really fallen and I almost feel like they will become irrelevant in the next decade for the damage they have done to their properties. I really did not like the Supergirl pilot episode which is too bad because i like several of the actors. But seriously, why do you need to pander? I know the old television networks are faltering pretty hard (despite their public denial of the fact) due to internet revelry but are they really so desperate that they need to find viewership this way? How about you stop the cronyism and look for talented writers instead? There are tons out of there and they will all work for peanuts just to have a chance at writing for a major network broadcast show.… Full Review »
Holly hell where do they find these writers? I mean... talk about bathroom break quality. I find charm in things that are purposely sappy asHolly hell where do they find these writers? I mean... talk about bathroom break quality. I find charm in things that are purposely sappy as well as things that are funny, serious or in between but this one does nothing right. The dialog is painful to watch and it feels like the actors were placed in straitjacket and sophisticated by the maniacal hands of the directors and writers. If I had to make an analogy with other types of products, this show feels like a cheap slave labor Chinese knockoff. The actors are just not convincing and their dialog is forced and unnatural from the intro and outro, to the conversations... it is very bad and reminds me a lot of Arrow and Flash style. Its like no thought was put into it and they just wanted to rush something out to get a few views. How the Arrow got past season 1 is baffling to me and the poor Flash... one of my favorite comics... got mangled to death in his show. Where are the writers from the brilliantly done Gotham series?
This show does do one thing well (and it is very obvious that it does it on purpose)... it panders to racism (folks who think race matters and thus want make sure every race is represented because they believe everyone else is racist when they are NOT) & sexism (people who think women need to be more represented because they believe everyone else is sexist when they are NOT). These stances are an insult to modern society because they both miss the part that EVERYONE has problems and just because people have problems it does NOT mean we are racist, sexist or whateverist. Its time to grow up. Life is not fair for anyone that is not privileged at birth (like... ironically... Supergirl lol).
Anyway, stay away from this. Hopefully all the directors and writers get fired and replaced by the folks with working neurons.… Full Review »
Watched first two episodes last night. Wanted to like it. Can't. Sheen and Waterston are totally non-believable as a gay couple. And it seemsWatched first two episodes last night. Wanted to like it. Can't. Sheen and Waterston are totally non-believable as a gay couple. And it seems like it was written into the contracts of the four leads that "actual acting is optional." And the quirky cast of supporting characters really clutters up the story without adding much.… Full Review »
Aside from a disappointing ending, that was more about setting up the show for next season than actually delivering on a lot of what had comeAside from a disappointing ending, that was more about setting up the show for next season than actually delivering on a lot of what had come before, this was arguably Sons of Anarchy's strongest season yet packing a consistently powerful punch throughout the thirteen episodes on offer.… Full Review »
