Yesterday, in our nightly roundup of “Watch, PVR, Pass,” we recommended giving the second episode of HELLCATS and the first episode of OUTLAW a try. This morning, we’d like to take this opportunity to apologize. We’re sorry. Really sorry.
Having nothing better to do on a given night is simply no excuse for so carelessly tossing out recommendations. The second episode of HELLCATS — or as we like to call it — the CW’s desperate attempt to capture some of GLEE’s audience by peppering outlandish dance breaks throughout each and every episode was just as tedious and boring as the first (To paraphrase a tweet from last night, “In the immortal words of Roger Murtaugh, ‘I’m too old for this $#*!’.”) While OUTLAW’s ridiculously predictable story-line and criminally unoriginal characters (Lucinda Pearl, the unorthodox private investigator played by Carly Pope who uses sex appeal and wit to gather information is absolutely nothing like THE GOOD WIFE’s Kalinda!) had us wishing Jimmy Smits would smarten up and give in to THE WEST WING spin-off America (okay, we) have been so vocally clamouring for.
Again, we’re sorry. We can only hope that tonight’s recommendations which will include the second episodes of NIKITA and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES in addition to the return of IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA will be a first step in the long and arduous process to re-earning your trust.
