Sunday at 10 is a terrible time slot. Many shows have
been put there that were pretty good, and yet they got
canceled early. Even some venerable shows like "Desperate
Housewives" and "Brothers & Sisters" only lasted there so
long before they lost viewers. I don't know why, but it's
the death slot. Even "The Mentalist" has not been doing well
Crisis is a good show and I hope it makes it to at least
another season, but so far the ratings have not been great.
I enjoy the show. It's about some kind of conspiracy to
expose a government cover-up. In the first episode, a bunch
of teenagers are kidnapped by a security team full of people
they trust. These are not just any ordinary teens. They're
the sons and daughters of important and wealthy people.
They're going on some field trip when they're taken.
Then things get really weird when we learn that one of
the parents, who is chaperoning the trip, is really the guy
behind the whole plot. This is one of those shows where you
can't take anything for granted because Things Are Not What
They Seem. It's similar to "Hostages" and other shows
I think it has some really interesting characters and
plots. I'm very glad to see Gillian Anderson and Dermot
Mulroney, who head the cast. There are many fine actors in
it that you'll probably recognize from other shows, too.
Lance Gross plays a secret service agent that is shot trying
to protect the kids, but he gets away from the bad guys and
rescues one of the kids. The actors who play the teens also
do a very fine job.
Personally, I think these type of shows (any type where
you have to tune in every week or risk missing too much) are
really risky, and I wish the networks would stop making so
many of them. Obviously your average person can only tune in
to a few shows like this regularly. The rest of the time,
they're watching sporadically or catching an episode or two
online or On Demand. Stuff happens that gets in the way of
our TV watching. Or we miss an episode when the DVR doesn't
record it. So if you miss ONE episode in a show like this,
you're totally lost, and you give up watching. Whereas
if you watch, say, NCIS, it's fine if you miss an episode.
Anyway, you should check it out. There's only been a few
episodes so I'm sure you can watch them online or On Demand!
It's worth watching.
