I actually like the show
16 November 2015 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

Kent Galloway (Ed Westwick) is a serial killer hunting the Sunset Strip in 1980s L.A. Karen McClaren (Taissa Farmiga) is an aspiring journalist who has a close encounter with him. Betty Beaumontaine (Erika Christensen) is a single mom nurse who begins a twisted affair with him. Police detectives Jack Roth (Jeremy Sisto) and Paco Contreras (Gabriel Luna) hunt for him. They track down McClaren as an witness and she's working with photographer Diver Hawkes (Evan Ross). Jack is married to Allison (Jaime Ray Newman) with a daughter and having an affair with undercover cop Dianne.

I actually like the style, the music and the killer story. I don't mind the Gossip Girl killer, and I really like Erika Christensen, Taissa Farmiga and Jeremy Sisto. A lot of things go through my mind about why this show crash and burn so badly both critically and in viewership. I have no problem with this getting canceled. There is no denying the horrendous rating. It deserves to be canceled after only 3 episodes. So what went wrong? Despite the minor success of Aquarius, I don't think this is a network show. This would work better as an 8 part serial with a lot more blood splatter. The story could move much faster. Aquarius is a summer show anyways. As for Wicked City, I don't care about Jack Roth's personal issues. I don't care about his love life. It would be better to concentrate on the killings and the investigation. I'm one of the few who actually like the show but I won't shed a tear for its cancellation.
