I say this mainly for its star. I hate Jennifer Love Hewitt a little bit more every time I see her on TV. They apparently cancelled Joan of Arcadia for this piece of unadulterated crap, which itself is a really lame knockoff of Medium, but without the neurosis, the geeky husband, the kids, or apparently the fascinating moral issues. Trust Jennifer Love Hewitt to look at something clever and complicated and think that it totally counts as a new show if she just makes it prettier and shallower.
Tonight's episode a) is currently the only thing on, and b) contains someone much prettier than Jennifer Love Hewitt. And more talented. And more snarky. And inspiring-me-to-write-Firefly-fic.
I am torn. >.<
But let me register my disappointment in him, for the record. Even if technically he's playing someone... y'know... dead.
She's *dating* the doctor who checks out the near-death cases? Oh, gag.
And why does the Token Boyfriend remind me of someone?( Collapse )
Y'know, this show kind of reminds me of Tru Calling. Which annoyed me for many of the same reasons. I mean, it lacked Jennifer Love Hewitt. But the "Look, Look, Pretty Normal People Have Crazy Loser Adventures Too, But They Do It In Designer Heels Without Messing Up Their Hair" bullshit is was there, is here, and going strong. Also, when a show about psychics fails to hold my attention even long enough for the names of the characters to sink in (I know I've heard their names, but I don't think I've retained them even once) - which, for the record, should only be about three minutes - you may safely assume that it lacks a certain depth. My Suspension of Disbelief is ridiculously, delusionally, sometimes embarassingly well-ingrained. Ask anybody. I think I can say with some authority, then, that this show actually, legitimately, Sucks. It's shallow, it's dull, the characters are un-engaging, the design is repetetive, the dialogue is distinctly un-clever and the atmosphere is not dragging me in. It's not even beckoning suggestively.
Tragically, that means it will probably hang on for multiple seasons.
I blame society.
Stupid people with no taste make me stabby sometimes. *sigh*
EDIT: OMG! Token Black Best Friend is the CSI lab tech who thinks Warrick's a tool!
...oh, Aisha Tyler. Why are you here? Did you do something bad? o.O
