The Series Premier Of ‘Law & Order: True Crime: The Menendez Murders’ Is Good Enough, But We’ve Seen It Before

NBC

The new Fall season has finally kicked off! So many new and returning shows to watch on any given day (of which I’ve been slowly making a dent in my DVR), that it’s tough to figure out which ones are worth your time. While I love new shows and typically give them at least one episode, if not up to six, to convince me, there are some that just can’t fully sell you. Well, not in the way you were hoping. While a pilot might not meet your expectations, as the first episode is never easy to get perfect, it certainly should convince you that it’s at least good enough. Sometimes, for a couple weeks, that’s all it takes.

The Series Premier Of ‘Inhumans’ Is Cruel And Unusual Punishment

It’s inevitable that every new TV season will feature at least one new bad series that’s not worth watching beyond the pilot. Mind you, sometimes watching the whole pilot episode isn’t even worth it, and that’s even worse. When you discover a really bad premiere, you just know it. No matter how much you hope it’ll get better, or how many episodes you give it until you ultimately succumb to the decision you knew you’d inevitably make, the show will never get better. Sometimes ditching a sinking ship quickly is the best thing to do.

‘The Strain’ Series Finale Ends As It Should, But Is Somehow Missing Something Important

FX


Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co.

Something wicked this way comes, but not for long as this is the final episode. It’s been known for some time, but even when you prepare for the series end of any TV show, it doesn’t mean it’ll be easy. It also doesn’t mean that it’ll be the best experience in the world. Not all series finales are created equal. It’s more a roll of the dice, so hopefully if you’re a fan, you have enough faith in the writers. While some series enders are instant classics and elevate the series to a whole new level, or the level it deserved from the beginning, some just are. Neither good nor bad, but more in the middle.

‘Channel Zero: No-End House’ Brings Fear And Terror In First Trailer

SyFy


Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co.

Fear is a powerful thing. When it comes to film and television writers know just how to tap into that, most of the time. As time goes on, what once scared so many might not scare any. So, people get creative. The previous things you were afraid of will probably take a back seat, as this series will awaken new ones. Things you never knew you could be afraid of, will become the closest thing to a living nightmare.

‘Empire Of The Sharks’ Couldn’t Get Anything Right Even With Twitter

SyFy


Note: This piece was originally published on Creators.co.

On the eve before the big event, the debut of Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, my favorite network decided to trot out this massive stinker. I was certain that the week would end on a high note. Boy was I wrong. I feel embarrassed. However, it wouldn’t be the first time. I expect a few of these to be less than stellar. I guess two is the total number for this year’s shark themed week. Perhaps next year will feature across the board wins!
