February 10, 2018 (No Comments) by Tahlia Peppard

We all know time is money and because of that you don’t want to be wasting your time with TV shows that aren’t particularly good or aren’t highly rated.

With more A-list stars, directors, and producers creating television than ever before, many are calling this the next golden age of TV. But regardless of who’s involved, there are bound to be some shows that don’t shine quite as brightly.

So in today’s article, I’ll be giving you a heads up on 9 TV shows that you shouldn’t bother watching and wasting your time with.

DOUBT

“Doubt,” which has already been cancelled, followed Katherine Heigl’s character, defense attorney Sadie Ellis, and her colleagues at a boutique law firm. Sadie is defending a wealthy client, but things get complicated when she begins to fall in love with him. Laverne Cox and Dule Hill also starred on the legal drama.

This TV show was only rated 5.4 on IMDb and was pulled after 2 low-rated episodes. Although it has some big names starring, it may not be worth your time to watch it, especially if it was cancelled after the first season.

CHICAGO JUSTICE

The latest in NBC’s “Chicago” franchise, “Chicago Justice,” follows the members of the state attorney’s team of prosecutors and investigators who must balance the public opinion and city politics with their execution of the law.

The city’s high-stakes cases often capture the attention of the media, forcing State’s Attorney Mark Jefferies, Assistant State’s Attorney Peter Stone, Chief Investigator Antonio Dawson and Investigator Laura Nagel to balance public opinion, embedded power struggles and their unwavering passion for the law.

Although this was created in line with the “Chicago” franchise, it hasn’t been as highly rated as the others, scoring a low 57% on Metacritic and being cancelled after one season.
If you want to start watching any of the “Chicago” shows, start with “Chicago Fire,” it’s been running the longest and continues to do well.

THE COLLECTION

Set in postwar Paris, “The Collection” follows clothing designer Paul Sabine’s (Richard Coyle) struggle to return the city to its previous fame as the center of the fashion world. The series, co-produced by Amazon Studios, BBC Worldwide’s Lookout Point, Federation Entertainment and France Télévisions, premiered on 2 September 2016.

The consensus on the critic website Rotten Tomatoes says, “The Collection’s impeccable visual style masks a muddled drama whose attempts at fashion-driven intrigue all too often stumble.”
Ouch!

FRONTIER

Frontier is a Canadian-American historical drama television series, chronicling the North American fur trade of the 1700s. The series follows Declan Harp (Jason Momoa), a part-Irish, part-Cree outlaw who is campaigning to breach the Hudson’s Bay Company’s monopoly on the fur trade in Canada.

Although this has been renewed for a third season, it has a low rating on Metacritic with 52% and 43% on Rotten Tomatoes. I wouldn’t waste your time watching Frontier because, “Jason Momoa’s powerhouse performance as Declan Harp is ultimately weighed down by Frontier’s often sluggish storytelling.”

TAKEN

A prequel to the 2008 action film “Taken,” NBC’s show is executive produced by the movie’s producer and writer Luc Besson. It follows a younger Bryan Mills, (Clive Standen) 30 years before the events of the film. Reeling from the tragic loss of a loved one, Bryan is recruited by the CIA and continues his quest for revenge.

Even though the TV series has the same Producer, it hasn’t been able to reach and attract the same audiences the movies did.

The TV series fails to deliver a compelling narrative distinguished from its source material and doesn’t provide a clear enough story to follow as it becomes just the typical show of fist fights, gunplay and car chases.

Stick to the actual movie with this one!

RANSOM

You’d think with a name like, “Ransom,” you’d be in for a good show, but this TV series is rated only 46% on Metacritic and not really something you should consider watching.

This TV series was inspired by the real-life crisis negotiator Laurent Combalbert, and stars Luke Roberts as Eric Beaumont. He and his team are called in to resolve some of the toughest kidnapping and ransom cases in the country.

With this TV series, it lacks any originality or excitement; unfortunately, there are series with the same subject matter that have been done better. The events that play out are typical and you can see what’s going to happen from the get go.

STAR

Lee Daniels’ second series for Fox after “Empire” also takes place in the music business. It follows Star, a young orphaned girl who puts together a girl group to conquer the seedy music scene of Atlanta.
The first season of the musical drama follows the lives of three young singers trying to navigate the music business and become famous. Star (Jude Demorest) is an 18-year-old orphan who spent her childhood in foster care; Simone (Brittany O’Grady) is Star’s 16-year-old sister who still lives in foster care in an abusive home; Alex (Ryan Destiny) is a 19-year-old trying to get away from her father’s shadow.

This series has a Metacritic score of 45% and 33% on Rotten Tomatoes. A critic of this show is quoted saying, “Despite Queen Latifah’s strong performance, Lee Daniels’ Star is weighed down by sloppy melodrama and overly cartoonish stereotypes.”

TRAINING DAY

Based on the popular 2001 film of the same name, CBS’s “Training Day,” stars the late Bill Paxton as a rogue detective whose new partner, a rookie narcotics officer played by Justin Cornwell, is spying on the veteran cop.

Training Day only has a 22% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a clear indictor that you shouldn’t waste your time watching the series.

It falls short of capturing the excellence of the film and follows the stereotypical nature of the tired and fed-up police officer.

MARVEL’S INHUMANS

The superhero series based on the Marvel comics of the same name focuses on the Inhumans, an alien race with superpowers that gets in contact with Earth.

This was Metacritic’s worst show of 2017 because it received the worst reviews of any new TV show in 2017 and it was rated 10% on Rotten Tomatoes – brutal!

Many, many critics have questioned what the network was thinking with this TV show.

So, there you go 9 TV shows you shouldn’t waste your precious time with!
