Perfect example of a show that can be fixed with time...
14 January 2005 | by morbid_VisionsSee all my reviews

Jonny Zero is a show involving a man who is released from prison and is trying to change his life for the better while dealing with the demons from his criminal past.

Many things about this show are very cliché such as the bumbling "mafia" men and the comic-relief sidekick. The director(s) are also to blame for the quick camera work (that only fits some scenes, not all) and musical choices. This show had some of the worst music I've ever heard in a show or movie. However, at one point Jonny sees his mother again and in the background you hear some nice, Latin salsa music. That was the only example of music that actually fit the scene. Other times it was weird techno or music from a band you probably don't care about. Another problem I had was the offbeat humor. I'm a fan of humor, but the kind in this show was asinine and again, didn't fit the scenes they were in. At times, there were some funny parts but out of maybe 13 or 14 attempts at humor in the show, only 2 or 3 of them worked.

The best thing about the show, so far, is the action. I was surprised at the level of violence shown and how real it looked. In once scene, "Jonny Zero" showed more blood than ANY "Twenty-Four" episode. The gunfights were well done from a TV show standpoint and Franky G fits his role perfectly. Sometimes, Franky does come off as a little stiff but that's probably due to his inexperience in a lead role. Something that will certainly get better.

Overall, the first episode is an example of good things a show can produce and bad things it can produce. Luckily, all these negative things can be fixed within a few episodes until the show levels out and produces its own identity (its set in New York, like millions of other shows). Better humor (or ditch it altogether), sensible music, and a steadier camera work should even things out nicely for a show which will surely become more entertaining as it progresses.
