Why on earth do you launch a new series, build a following for it, decide to extend it to a full bundle of episodes, then yank it off the air for 3 months?

I'm watching but up to this point I'm not exactly sure why. I think the two plus months of hype drew me in. And now I'm waiting on the delivery. Her skills in beating up men are unmatched. Her inability to follow instructions are painfully predictable. We'll see where the whole point of the Tattoos carries us. I just hope it fills us in before I lose interest.

Well Tap according to Bub your a tasteless sheep. Maybe before making your comment you either don't or find out why there's conversation. Thanks!

Really? finally a good show get's extended to a FULL season and you find a way to bicker back and forth about it? That's the "shame" of this thread...not the show and those that like it.

Actually that was me in the last post, but I'd agree with some of the shows you mentioned. But even though there good shows, the comic shows you mention follow the same formula. Heroes Reborn is just Heroes the TV sequel same concept. And if you think Scream Queens is good TV then I can just ignore any comments you make. Throwing money at something doesn't make it better. It's the content. So you can say I'm correct, but if you were an actual authority then you wouldn't be posting you'd be creating. Opinions can't be incorrect that's why they are opinions. But whatever you want to believe to help you sleep at night you may do so.

Umm...Those aren't cop shows.

Look at it this way... Not my thing, but imagine a cooking show... that has a pilot which shows you a dish you REALLY want the recipe for. You spend an hour watching the pilot based upon this recipe. You tune in to Episode 2 and find that it uses the first 5 minutes to review what the pilot showed you... then the chef spends 30-33 minutes showing you how to make tacos, completely unrelated.... then the last 3-5 minutes of the show the chef tells you 1 more ingredient you'll need for that recipe you want to know. Episode 3 uses the first 5 minutes to review that ingredient you were told about in episode 2... then the chef spends 30-33 minutes showing you how to make burgers, again unrelated.... then the last 3-5 minutes of the show the chef tells you 1 more ingredient you'll need for that recipe you want to know. This happens with EVERY episode... you have to wait for the last 3 minutes of the episode to get the next ingredient. Sure you may have beed entirely interested based upon the pilot, but eventually you get tired of all the junk TV just to get at what you were originally interested in. This is moron TV and the network executives know it. They do this so they can run shows open-ended for years if the pubic will swallow it. Only viewers demanding better writing will ever put an end to it.

You're incorrect, Moe. There are a ton of great shows that do NOT follow the basic "Murder She Wrote" pattern -- Fargo, Breaking Bad, Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story, Arrow, The Flash, Daredevil, From Dusk Till Dawn, Hell on Wheels, Utopia (Uk version) -- new shows -- Scream Queens, You me and the Apocalypse, Heroes Reborn (and Heroes season 1 and 2), Bastard Executioner. Coincidently, it's the better shows that are actually 44-50 minute episodes rather than the 36-41 minute commercial packed episodes on the big 3/4 networks. (yes the others have commercials, but not as many.) ---- It's not that all shows MUST follow a pattern, it's that the big 3/4 network writers can't do any better and it makes it VERY EASY on them to just fill every episode with same junk. Perhaps the networks just don't incentivize writers ($$) to do better. If you're happy with the mediocrity then more power to you. I for one can't stand 99% of the network "cop/legal/medical" shows because the pattern is the most obvious aspect of them. I often like the pilots.. but upon tuning into episode 2, the pattern is IMMEDIATELY recognizable again. Making every episode after the pilot pointless.

Bubble hate to break it to you but most TV shows afterc the first TV shows to ever air follow a basic pattern. It's the actors and how they portray their characters and the storyline that make the difference.
