I seem to be channeling the cranky lately. So my latest Blogcritics post is:
(Blogcritics has changed the rules so now we have to post things there first. That doesn’t mean I couldn’t also post here once they’ve published an article, but I’ll probably just link to them now.)
good point about the save the—-campaigns.
The oddest thing to me was that it was cancelled in the first place. I didn’t join any movements but I thought, oh, that was kind of dumb.
the ratings suffered against AI sure, but the second half was a better show. Was it any good? probably not, but i have a soft spot for post apocylyptic stories, even ones that are, as you pointed out early on, unusually optimistic.
I read somewhere that the cbs affiliates were underwhelmed by the new schedule and cbs execs had to scramble. That might just be a rumour though.
let’s see what the producers and cbs do with the second chance.
I’d heard that about the underwhelmed affiliates, too. I’ve seen some of the new stuff (reviews coming … eventually) and I’m pretty underwhelmed too. It will be interesting to follow the second chance, and see if they can get at least a full season out of it.
I’m channeling the cranky lately myself … must be something going around.
And for the record, I NEVER liked Jericho. So there.
It makes for a pretty interesting season when the network you are most looking forward to watching is the CW. Seriously.
