Third episode verdict: Standoff

Well, I’ve stuck with it, through to the third episode of Standoff. I wasn’t impressed much by the pilot, but it wasn’t totally awful. Since then, it’s improved slightly and it’s revealed a good title sequence that’s more than a little bit inspired by Bullshit!‘s, but it’s still not enough to make me watch more.

The plots aren’t quite as offensively stupid as the pilot episode’s, but they’re still pretty unrealistic and silly; the relationship stuff is being toned down, but again, pretty unrealistic and silly. The characters aren’t really very involving, either. Oh well.

All in all, pretty average, despite Ron Livingston. One to avoid.
