  • ’22/’23 Slate (NBC): Crime shows steal home but Endgame ends…

  • Bored. Game. NBC’s overtly familiar felon-feature is style over content…

    The FBI has been looking for a way to bring down international criminal mastermind Elena Federova and it seems that their hard work has paid off. But in a top-security facility, Federova seems pretty nonchalant about her new surroundings and the demands for her to co-operate.  Miles away, a...
  • La Brea’king Bad. Template show is another land of the LOST…

    On a sunny morning, the (relative) calm of a packed LA freeway is disturbed by a cracking of the sidewalk… and then a chasm, quickly becoming the biggest sink-hole ever recorded.  Buildings start to topple, vehicles fall… and so do people. Families are suddenly torn apart and separated, but...

  • UPFRONTS: Wolf reigns as networks turn to franchise formula…

    After a crazy year caused by covid, it seems that the major networks want to avoid risks and go with proven formula. In this case, more than ever, that means taking far less chances on new or innovative, niche titles and relying on existing franchise titles and expanding them...
  • Battle Fatigue: Debris distraction explores Bryan’s wartime woes….

    Investigating a potential debris crash site, a team comes across a lone woman sat in the grass and saying she needs to speak to Bryan Beneventi. When Finola and Bryan arrive, the woman, named Mariel, is taken to a secure facility and Bryan begins to realise that the words...
