Close but no Cigar
21 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This will be my last view of this show this season; and not because I haven't heard one "Neat", "Keen" or "Cool". It's the Pace. It plays like a Day Time Soap, and relies too much on trying to entertain us with the period (1959 Miami), and not with script quality. They toned down the nudity this episode to one fake set of Boobs. Last week the episode could have been called "Boob Quest". I'm sure the crew and cast are having a ball with filming in Miami and getting to live in 1959 when it was "Cool" to chain smoke, and drive cars that looked like Space Ships; however, that appeal wears off fast for a viewer. This episode was a wee bit better than last week; but not worth an hour of my life. Two notable moments were seeing Hotel Guests dance the twist which was actually invented in 1959 by Hank Ballard; and a well acted suspenseful moment delivered by Danny Houston (Ben Diamond) during a card game. Perhaps a condensed fast paced accurate movie could have developed successfully with this idea. Who knows...the Producers may hire a talented writer or two and save this show. I guess you'll have to wait for next season to find that out, because all the shows for this season have already been filmed.
