    Taxidermy would have made a great subject of a documentary special. But as a competition show? It's as lively as the animals displayed.

    Immortalized is the better of the two ["Freakshow" being the other] because it revels in its own absurdity.

    A taxidermy version of "Top Chef," so overblown it could only work as parody.

    Bombastic music cues and promises of excitement fail to persuade the viewer that Immortalized isn’t just a dead skunk in the middle of February’s road, stinkin’ up to high heaven.

    AMC should stick to their scripted shows instead of adventuring further into the reality show outlet. Here's the reason: "Immortalized" looks interesting on the face, but once you delve into the show it is poorly executed, boring, incoherent, and practically useless. The term "immortalized" is continually used, but this show certainly won't be immortalized in TV history that's for sure. A combination of it's lackluster judges and host leave the show irritating at times as their continual narration is trivial. Finally, the contestants themselves seem like poorly paid actors trying to spew what is given to them. Overall, this show should be avoided unless you're interested in bore-fests. Full Review »
