Dull as dish water
27 June 2016 | by smarkbrownSee all my reviews

I'll admit I was looking forward to something more akin to the original American Gothic. This isn't that, not even near, not even the same ball park, or even the same game. None of the characters are remotely interesting, they are portrayed by seemingly exceedingly wooden actors none of whom add anything to the story. The script feels about as believable as chocolate snow flakes and delivery by people who don't care about what they are doing.

It feels so very weak and halfhearted, which is a real shame. It's not that there hasn't been thought put into the show, it's just that clearly not enough thought has been put in, not enough emotional investment from the actors etc. Something is just way off with this. Maybe it will get better with time, we can certainly hope so, but I doubt I'll be tuning in to find out.
