Every year we have tons of new shows debut. Some are awesome and some are gutter trash. I can’t record or watch them all, so I’m hoping to get some input on the ones I am missing out on. I’ll try to offer up some critiques as well.
I was able to watch 4 new shows this past weekend/last night. Here are my initial, gut reactions:
Life in Pieces
Funny. Actually, the scenes with Colin Hanks being a new father were hysterical. Some of the best written comedy I’ve seen in a long time. Season Pass Ordered!
The acting was horrible. Half of the CGI was well done; the other half was laughable. The plot was thin… and I’m not looking forward to episode 2. I’m not sure I can even bring myself to continue on after that. Season Pass Canceled.
The complete opposite of Minority Report. Good acting, compelling story, secrets that make me want to tune in next week. It had a very Blacklist feel to it, so if you like that… this is also up your alley. Season Pass Ordered!
The Mindy Project
While not a new show, it is new to Hulu. And sometimes with a channel change comes other changes. Community seemed to suffer when it went to Yahoo. The first half of the season seemed very low budget, but it picked up in the latter half. I thought we’d see that with the Mindy Project as well, but no. In fact, I think it was actually funnier on Hulu. Season Pass Ordered!
