5 Ways That The Inhumans TV Show Went The Cheapskate Route

I finally was able to finish my struggle watch of MARVEL’S THE INHUMANS TV show and I really would like to have those 10 hours of my life back. The show was dull, bland and aimless with no one thing or person truly standing out aside from an animated giant teleporting dog. Hopefully this failed experiment has taught the folks at Marvel’s TV division realizes that big cosmic fantasy properties are not the best use of their time and (obviously) limited resources. Also The Powers That Be over there have got to realize that Scott Buck is a guaranteed disaster machine as a showrunner and they never let him near another Marvel property ever again.

In the long run I may end up hating all of these shows but for right now these are the best looking shows based on just trailers.

The Worst Looking New Fall TV Shows

Following in the footsteps of my Best Looking New Fall TV Shows post I felt it necessary to address the flip side. I was pretty spot on with some of my choices from last years post (I saw the horrible writing on the wall with MULANEY) and completely wrong on one in particular (alas poor SELFIE, we hardly knew ye). So sit back, relax and let me provide a PSA to any unsuspecting TV viewers to stay far away from the shows under the cut.

The Best Looking New Fall TV Shows

I did this last year and figured it was something worth doing annually just because I am a TV aficionado and I like to come back after a season is over to see if my first impressions turned out to be correct (I was all over the place with last year’s picks). So strap in and take a gander at what I think are the best looking shows the big broadcast networks plan on giving us next season.
