Last week I mentioned I would critique the new TV show The Inhumans. So here we go.
Oh where to start with this show. First I will say that most “critics” are on the fence. But the fence is leaning towards a flop. I have to agree. With the flop that is. I am not on the fence. After seeing just one episode I have to stay clear of this show because too much bile was caught in my throat. Watching the show is like watching Charlies Angels battle the Six-Million Dollar Man.
To put it bluntly, this show is awful. And not just awful it’s shockingly awful. You only need watch the last few minutes of last week’s episode to get a sense of how badly written, acted AND directed this show is.
The last scene had to be made up on the spot. I can’t truly believe that someone was paid to write such a horrible mess. Its starts with the lead good guy and a friend walking out of a secure facility only to be met by all the bad guys in the parking lot (how convenient). Then just as the bad guys are going to win. The lead good guy grabs a random pipe that expels explosive gas (again how convenient) while the friend runs of camera (never to be seen again). Then the lead good girl shows up, Medusa played by Serinda Swan. Who by the way should quit acting, because she can’t act. She drives a 70’s or 80’s Cadillac convertible (I need a word here for Cliché’) Hits the bad guy with the door and knocks him out. Not the toughest bad guy I’d say. For a moment I thought I had been transported back to 1980 and I was watching
Dukes of Hazard. The ‘Dukes’ is possibly the worst show ever put on TV, which is until this inhuman debacle.
So if you’re thinking about watching the Inhumans you would be better off stabbing a fork in your leg. It would be more fun and less painful.
Please producers, making this show for people to watch is... Inhuman.
