Ten Days in the Valley is Nine Days Too Many
Even Kyra Sedgwick couldn't save Ten Days in the Valley. The less concerned her character appeared to be about her daughter the more difficult it became to watch an actress as revered as Sedgwick try to make it comfortable. No amount of mystery can pull the ratings up after such a shaking start.
Blue Bloods Blindsides
Fans were blindsided when Blue Bloods killed off beloved character Linda Regan, at the same time murdering the last stable relationship on the series. For a show about family, ending the last marriage seemed over the top and Linda's death taking place off screen didn't give fans time to grieve for the character.
Kevin Can Wait Should Have Waited
Kevin Can Wait didn't fare much better when it came to killing off a spouse. Even though the announcement was made well in advance of the premiere, a decent number of viewers tuned in to see how her death was handled (a quick word over junk mail in her name) and nearly 50% didn't return for Episode 2. This has NOTHING to do with lack of love for Leah Remini, either, whose Scientology show on A&E continues to impress and gain viewers. It's about respecting viewers. Go figure!
The Eleven Explores and Investigates
The Eleven on A&E explores the retracted confession of convicted murderer Edward Harold Bell for some of the 11 murders in and around Galveston County, Texas, in the 1970s. The contrast of the life of young teen girls then and now is part of the attraction of the series, as is the hope for news and information on the 45-year old murders.
Supernatural Tantalizes both Cas AND Lucifer Fans!
Lucifer's son, Jack, looking so much like Castiel had to be a surprise to everyone on Supernatural Season 13. First, Jack showed up looking for his dad, and he named Castiel. Then, his personality and his very genetic code screamed Cas. Being the son of Lucifer and displaying the characteristics of Castiel is a welcome surprise, only befuddling the Winchesters as they attempt to raise the Nephilim.
Marvel's Inhumans is Practically Inhumane
Marvel's Inhumans solved their Medusa problem by whacking off her hair. That's a disappointment wrapped in a surprise. The series is doomed, as was expected, and why not lay it all on the shoulders of Medusa's missing hair?
