Third-episode verdict: Saved and Windfall

Posted on June 29, 2006 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

I've reviewed the first episodes of Saved and Windfall already. They've now passed the third episode stage so as is tradition round here, I'll give you my (brief) verdicts on whether you should stick with them:

Saved: Less dark now, still not much fun, less interesting than it was. Probably not worth soldiering on with if you have any doubts.
Windfall: Has now succumbed to every cliché and obvious plot development possible. Save yourself: don't watch it!

Oh well. I'm just going to have to start looking for the next great US TV show again, now. Sigh.
