10 October 1999 | by (Seattle, WA.) – See all my reviews

What a horrible show! How can a man who wrote incredible dialogue for the 2 "Scream" movies, and "The Faculty", put out such a big load of dung? I was so looking forward to seeing "Wasteland" and it is so depressing. The characters were so boring and shallow, maybe the actors are just bad. I know Mr. Williamson has great talent. He should look back at his old movies for the intelligent writing he is capable of. I am looking forward to more things by Mr. Williamson, and I am sure he will be successful. It is the opposite of the David E. Kelley thing. Mr. Kelley writes the best shows on TV, but can't seem to write a movie. Kevin writes great movies, but loses it on TV. I see a partnership possibility.
