wish they would develop more of john's past gf that betrayed him and his pursue to find her and the group that ambushed his raid. at this rate, the show seem disconnected and nothing is linking together.

I'm wondering if them showing it out of sequence is affecting this....

I think we've all been spoiled by good shows on cable. For what it is this show is at the very least amusing, you also have to factor in they gotta make 20+ eps and that hurts story telling.

Having said that though they probably would have been better served if they solved less cases and focused on further character development. Just off the top of my head these are issues I have

1) The Chrome? (Clone?) storyline, they just say like "oh they're genetically engineered" but to me that's not like enough.....so if these guys are all perfect and rich, do they then run the whole city? Are they the future 1%?

2) The Minka Kelly and Karl Urban storyline, they had like 3 eps in between from initiating the potential romance to him actually sorta acting on it. I just find that weird.

3) They intermittently throw in bits of storyline almost randomly and reprise his old gf stuff every once in a while, but I don't think it works.....

4) The opening is kinda stupid after like the second ep, it's nice to hear from the voice over what the show is about, but for the 12th time it's starting to be a little annoying, it's minor yes but they very well can just play some music.

^Couldn't agree more.

I think the show could be doing better if they focused more on the deal with his ex-gf etc. I mean, i'm sure they are working towards that, but its going REALLY slow.

I didnt watch the show but it seemed alright

that's one of the things i hate about FOX they're always canceling shows that are pretty good
its a shame they dont pass the show on to one of their other networks instead of outright canceling them (dont they own FX or something?)

Great cast and concept.

Alcatraz was so good (in a first season, can't wait to see how they develop it kind of way).

Terra Nova sucked ass.

They're back in a time when dinosaurs around, and all they focus on is fucking family drama bullshit

you can tell even from the first episode that terra nova was a big gamble for Fox.. it was a high budget show with big set piece and outdoor location

ratings started to dip as soon as the segment with the daughter and soldier falling in love with father getting involve and dissaproving etc....

Almost Human had a better chance of surviving if it was on FX or even SyFy.. just look at Helix.. got renewed for second season
