Third-episode verdict: The Nine

The Nine

Well, the first episode was dull and that was pretty much the high point. Ever since then, The Nine has descended into a sea of tranquillity and tedium that makes watching paint dry seem like an Olympic sport.

Unlike Lost‘s flashbacks, The Nine‘s don’t add a single thing. Two minutes of someone hiding in the bathroom: goodie. That was time well spent. The characters are all bonding nicely, but they’re all about as exciting as filling in a tax return.

So a definite thumbs down for The Nine. Steer clear of it.
