ZOMBIELAND Series Pilot Recap and Review | Collider
The character relationships may feel forced and lacking in the chemistry department, but the production quality is pretty solid. They don’t have a movie budget by any means but the post-apocalyptic world feels properly disheveled and devoid of life. The make-up is acceptable for a low-budget zom-com and the effects clearly receive the bulk of the budget. There are also a few good gags and one-liners scattered throughout the opening trial episode. Unfortunately it’s not enough to hook me into future viewings. I’ve got nothing invested in these rehashed characters and the post-apocalyptic relationship storyline did nothing for me. Pilot episodes have notoriously difficult job of establishing tone and character for an entire series, so I’ll give Zombieland the benefit of the doubt on that front. Luckily, you can check the pilot out for yourself for free at Amazon and rate it to let them know whether or not it should continue to a full season. As for my opinion…
I'm conflicted with this show. I feel much the same way you do about it. I do think she does a good job playing the different characters but at the same time it seems like wigs are the only thing they can come up with to differentiate the clones. They look a bit silly. As far as the plot goes, her becoming a cop is far fetched but hey its in her dna right? I'll give it a few more episodes before i give up on it.Quote:
And Orphan Black is getting up my nose. Now she is gonna learn how to be a cop by abusing the IT guy? Yeah, not so much. Although Fi and his foppy over the topness is starting to grow on me as comic relief. Can't tell if the main character is hot or not. What say you Bob. I kinda like the dreadhead version of her or the original the best.
Biggest complaint with Copper is that they are trying to do too much. It's like you can't get a grip on a character because they keep Shamalaying their motivations. I like the show...to an extent. It's just hard to really like it when, as soon as you think you understand a character they do a 180 on them. The only one who seems steady is the Doc, and maybe the irish(yeah like that narrows it down) big guy whos wife beats him. Would you be ok with Maguire resuming his place after the 2 episode confessional he had(that was a weeeeee bit too tidy as well, almost as if they swept all their troubles under the rug...and he happened to be the rug). Like I said, i will watch season 2, and hopefully they don't keep musical chair-ing the leads. I am honestly looking forward to Donal Logue stepping in, in the promo he has a bit of sophisticted gentleman look about him, maybe he ties into the Morehouse storyline.
Good point on Orpan Black too. Her mannerisms are good but the do her a disservice with the laughable costuming/wigs they use...geez the German gal was p...u! Don't know if you are watching, but, The Americans, which I love, has a similar problem. Terrible wigs and glasses as disguises and they are '70's influenced too so they look even more shabby.
NBC shifts Grimm to Tuesdays, pulls Ready for Love
Man, that's why you suck NBC. Your one steady hit and you subject it to oddly timed 2 week and longer hiatus', and move it to what? it's 4th time/day slot. Granted...it's a crap show. And people seem to be willing to tolerate your shuffling, but still...there is a reason why Telemundo has better ratings.
You should give Americans another chance. First few episodes were set-up. It's settled into a real good pace since episode 3 or so.
RECTIFY Series Premiere Recap and Review | Collider
Starts on Sundance tonight. Still have to finish 2nd half of Top of the Lake(which it replaces), but based on the first 4 eps I watched you should check it out(it's up on Netflix now...top of the lake is). Rectify looks good although I keep hearing it is sloooooooowwwwwwwwllllllllyyyyyyy paced, so be mindful if that's not your thing.
Dick Wolf Confident Of 'Chicago Fire' Renewal, Says Boston Marathon Storyline Would Be Difficult: NBC Press Day - Deadline.com
Everyone cross your fingers for TooCool.
Vikings season finale' next Sunday. Considering they never even conceived of a second season(which they were surprised to get) their claims of YOU...WON'T...SEE...THIS...COMING are probably not as hollow as most such claims. Nice to see Donal Logue.
And, I just want to thank Carlton Cuse and the creators of Bates Motel. Stiil, the best show on tv for all the wrong reasons. RuPauls Drag Race is actually less ridiculous/more believable.
