I wonder who the heck made this possible and what the witters/ director where thinking in the first place, I am referring not only to the low quality and perhaps budget or how much money they spend on making this. It is telling me in my face "hey stupid" ...the dialog, the development of the situations and the unravel of the conversations and how they are manage in this show accordingly with the problem at hand. (no wonder what will happen in the next episodes if this last) It is the first plot (episode) but that is enough to see how this whole thing will be, do not get me wrong.
The main actress play her role very well, that is something to not complain about, but the other actors and actresses look like they have no intention to even play their acts, it looks like she is the only that stand on her own in this whole show. The comedy is okay the fight sequence are BAD! BAD! BAD! only those that are willing to have a guilty pleasure watching this, wouldn't even enjoy it. There are some few moments that gives you the short satisfaction of something well done, until they open their mouths and the fighting sequence starts.
I keep thinking, what the heck and who the heck are these writers.
Just place Melissa Benoist in the main DC movies and be done with it. She plays well her has Supergirl, but that is it.
We want quality not quantity, is not about being or not being a fan, is about having a decent well made show with awesome writing and direction.… Full Review »
A lot of good ingredients but perhaps over-baked. Great cast, great writers, good sets and good premise, but something seems a bit "off" andA lot of good ingredients but perhaps over-baked. Great cast, great writers, good sets and good premise, but something seems a bit "off" and I'm not sure if it's been tweaked too much or it's just trying too hard. I love it when Jane and Lilly are on the screen, but Martin and Sam - while not limp or fey- seem like they're phoning it in. I get frustrated when they're on the screen and hopeful when the gals are on, their lives seem far more fascinating than the men who've left them. I was very disappointed that the story line with Grace and the ex-con didn't go further, the contrast and chemistry between those two was TV screen fire. To supplant him with tired old Craig Nelson was such a let down. I think Frankie's hippie persona is painted with a bit too bright of colors, but Grace is spot-on as the uptight socialite. Favorite scene so far was the "might have happened" bit with Grace's hospital stay and soundly proved Fonda's acting chops during the scan scene and seemed more real than any scene elsewhere. Some laughs, but a lot of drag time and most of the scenes with the younger actors seem written by an entirely different crew. Not funny, not interesting. I realize they need to sprinkle in the rest of the family, but yeesh, those are some bad moments, especially of Decker who could use some serious acting lessons. I'm sticking with it, but only because I love the two headliners and the premise and hoping it finds it's sweet spot very soon.… Full Review »

We have the governor from TWD, we have the inability to leave from The Dome and The Returned etc. What we do have that makes it worth watching is an excellent cast, although no one is not expendable, so the cast may change, and some unnerving twist and turns. Definitely worth the summer viewing.… Full Review »
Great show, My only issue with it as with the earlier seasons is the fact that they are only doing 10 episodes for each. Why its a bad thing?Great show, My only issue with it as with the earlier seasons is the fact that they are only doing 10 episodes for each. Why its a bad thing? Because the books contain crazy amount of "data" and its impossible to turn it into 10 episodes without having some side effects like the feeling that there is not enough depth into all of the characters in the show, and some difficulty to follow because of the many jumps from one to the other ( its easier to deal with in the books since unlike in the series the books go deep into the details and let you get attached alot easier.
Conclusion : I think a series of this scale should have been at least 15-16 episodes, but i am guessing that the main problem is the budget?… Full Review »

American wise guy applies his ways not just to run his business but to deal with the more extreme and absurd aspects of political correctness and socialism in Norway. Wonderful actors. About half of the show is in Norwegian so if you can't stand subtitles this is not for you.… Full Review »
