Time of Death

Cancelled

The CW, ABC, NBC, Fox


It comes but once a year, but when it does, it does so without feeling. It’s a bloodbath. Quick and merciless. While it’s inevitable, it never ceases to cause pain. While there are many long foreseen as goners, there’s still enough room for many surprises. And those ones hurt the most.

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

NBC


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

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

Marvel/ABC


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

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.

BBC America


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

Another month, another series that must come to an end. It’s the terrible thing about successful and genuinely good TV shows. One day the stories will end, and no matter how prepared fans seem to be, it’ll never be enough. There’s so many emotions involved, it’s a wonder anyone can make it through a finale at all. But they must. The characters that so many fans have fallen in love with are drawing us in one last time. How will it end? In order to find out, we must be there, even when it gets a bit emotional.

Something’s In ‘The Mist’ But It’s Not An Interesting Story In The Series Premier

Spike TV


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

10 years. That’s all it took for a remake of an excellent film to be turned into an unnecessary TV series. Hell, it’s not even really 10 years yet, as the film itself wasn’t released until around Thanksgiving. Regardless, it’s terrible no matter how you look at it. Originality is dead, and once more, all that’s needed is a decade to pass before it’s okay to do reboots or remakes of previously done material.
