The pilot put my lights out
18 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watched this show hoping witness the next great FX show and was sadly disappointed. FX normally does well when they make great "guy dramas" (The Shield, Rescue Me, and Justified being among the best) but "Lights Out" is one of the worst shows ever made by FX. Okay, it's not that terrible but the characters are generic and the plot is played out. Holt McCallany is capable, as are Stacy Keach and Pablo Schreiber but I hope they haven't ruined their careers with this show. The fault lies entirely with the writing team who obviously Netflixed "On the Waterfront", "Raging Bull", "Rocky", "The Wrestler", and "Million Dollar Baby" before trying their hands at writing a t.v. show. The daughters are the worst as they simply are blonde versions of the daughters on "Modern Family". The only entertainment I got out from the show was playing a drinking game the second half hour in which I had to take a shot every time the show introduced another stereotype. By the time they showed the previews for the next episode, I was "on the canvas". If I ever watch the show again, which I won't, I will take a shot every time poor Catherine McCormack's accent trembles like a punch drunk pugilist. I have been a member of IMDb since 2005 and this is the first review I have ever written because I am so disappointed by FX programming decision, hype, and ultimate letdown.
