guess I'm going to hate watch this turkey. two of the worst child actors ever.

The worst part is I read three online reviews just to make sure I wasn't crazy or a narrow-minded snob - they all thought it was ok, one even said it was great 😕 have I've watched too many shows lately and ended up really, really picky or have people's expectations sunk so low? I mean, it was garbage! It picked up ten minutes from the end, then I got a little bit intrigued, simply because the mom decided to do some acting. Everything felt so forced, like giving birth to a soccerball. I will watch next episode but only because I liked Devon Sawa (Nico).

"this is so bad"

I came here to say the exact same thing , only I wasn't going to be as nice.

Hi Jana :wave_tone2:

It was pure :poop:

...and here I was thinking The Mist was the worse, and along comes this.

The premise of the show is good, it could have been good, I can't believe the executives at ABC green lit this junk, but straight up and cancelled Time After Time before the 4th episode.

...simply because the mom decided to do some acting.

I must have missed that totally, really? She acted? I never knew Paula Patton could be that lousy. She and the daughter were the worse, when they are supposed to be the main characters.By the end of the show, I seriously didn't care what happened to either one of them and why was the role of a teenager being played by a little girl/child?

:rofl: :rofl:

I don't know of him, but I did like his character, his niece, and the husband.

I am going to give it another shot- it just may get better(no I really don't believe this, but we'll see.)

Oh yeah, didn't you see? She and that piece of rock had a moment at the very end 😄

I won't write about episode 2 here in case I spoil anything but in my opinion, it went from utter crap to "I can watch this and bitch about it here later".

Ah yes, now I remember! That rock really nailed that scene.

:rofl: :rofl: You've seen episode 2 already?

Couldn't even get through the first episode which is rare for me. I literally watch everything at least once.

Yeah it's weird, they aired episode one and two on Monday and Tuesday. Episode three airs on August 1.

I really like the concept. But there's absolutely no personality in it. The first episode just crammed in a bunch of events that she can later remember throughout the season and try to avoid. It's all plot with very little character, heart or personality. The acting, especially of the little girl, also leaves a lot to be desired. Such a shame because the idea has a lot of potential, but unfortunately in execution this is standard lame TV fair (not too unlike Extant as an example, although that might have been a bit better, it still felt very flat for me).

Exactly, this is what I meant when I said the premise of the show is good- it could have been good.

Yes, Extant was a bit better than this- the acting on Extant wasn't quite as horrible. Extant did have a finale and I don't think Somewhere is going to make it that far. Somewhere is going nowhere.

Monday and Tuesday-I think that's a bad sign, they know it's gonna bomb (which they should have realized during filming)

I may watch episode 2 On Demand. I will let you know if I make it all the way to the end of the episode and we can b ytch about it together :rofl: .

You know a show is bad when...

there is only one thread under its title and it is named "this is so bad".

I'm hoping Serena stays dead at the end of this. she is that annoying

Wow! Wtf? The acting is so bad this could end up the final destination for some of these acting careers.
