No thread, which might be explained by the poor ratings. No one is interested in this show. Until today, I had only read reviews, and noted the poor ratings. It is also the first fall show to get its order cut, which is a death sentence. And the reviewers hate it. Just HATE it. They consider it a Shondaland wannabe, and granted, it does feel much like her work, especially Scandal. Rotten Tomatoes viewers like it (75%) but critics rate it at 25% and 'top critics', whatever they might be, rate it at 13%. It would be a miracle if it had a second season, and could easily end in a Saturday night or summer burnoff. And I really expected to hate it. I am not a fan of the lead actor, either. Those who actually read my posts know I am hard on shows that i feel are less than stellar. But it is stellar. I cant find anything wrong with it at all. It is compelling, slick, and engaging. Well written, acted, and produced. And it does not suffer from the tendency lately of trying to generate dramatic tension by adding really busy orchestration to the sound track. There must be a real epidemic of carpal tunnel syndrome among string musicians in LA (OK, they're all digital samples, not real strings) because those guys are sawing on those violins and cellos as fast as their little hands can fly. I've never heard as many frantic string sections under a TV drama as I have this fall. And that is usually an indication of flopsweat and a lack of confidence in their product being any good without something, something, to gin up the action, even if artificially. But not here. The soundtrack is terrific on this show. Jeez, everything is terrific here. I don't get it. It won't go down in history as a favorite of mine or anyone else's, but if Shonda is the comparison, it seems better than a full 2/3rds of what she puts on ABC.
