There's a lot of stuff on TV, but some shows don't even make pass the second episode before getting cancelled. Below are some of the worse that aired this year, some which weren’t even around long enough for you to know they existed.
5. “Welcome to the Family” (NBC) - Cancelled after 3 episodes
NBC’s attempt to recreate the success of ABC’s “Modern Family”, but instead came across as an “unfunny” show with “all the depth of a knock-knock joke.” Despite getting cancelled, the show is still airing on STAR World India and Hulu.
4. “Low Winter Sun” (AMC) - Cancelled after 10 episodes
Hi-jacked the “Breaking Bad” bandwagon by airing reminders during the show. The plot was also supposed to sound like the Walter White series about a good family man who "broke bad." The show even used actors from two of the network’s top shows — Gale from “Breaking Bad” and short-lived Morgan from “The Walking Dead” — to try to appeal to viewers. Ratings dipped from 2.5 million viewers to 600,000 by episode 10.
3. “Ironside” (NBC) - Cancelled after three episodes
It's no wonder critics tore apart this remake of the NBC series. The story takes place in the late '60s about a detective in a wheelchair. Everything about it was so cliched to the point where it got so bad it was nearly funny. The show also came under scrutiny by many because the show didn't hire a disabled actor to play the titular role.
2. “We Are Men” (CBS) - Cancelled after two episodes
A comedy about three divorced guys and another one who got left at the altar. The Hollywood Reporter sums it up best: “‘We Are Men’ is about four single guys you wouldn't ever want to be around or be related to in any way … [it] made me feel stupid almost immediately and then bitter that I'd wasted the time.”
1. “Lucky 7” (ABC) - Cancelled after two episodes.
The premise followed seven gas station employees from Queens who won the lottery. Their winnings were supposed to dramatically change their lives forever... but mostly for the worse. Interestingly enough, the series was executive-produced in part by Steven Spielberg and was based on a British show "The Syndicate" currently going into its third season.
Crime and Mystery has always had us glued to our seats when it comes to TV. Human brain is wired such that, it is attracted to curiosity and mystery. It gets more enticing, when the show strikes the right balance in personal and professional lives of the protagonist. It gets too hard to hate them for all their cruelties when it comes to them having their personal lives just like a common man. Romanticizing the “villain” makes it more worth watching. Ironically, making it hard to decide whose side the show’s at. Read more
What is about to follow is a list (in no particular order) of top TV series currently available to satisfy your geeky television cravings. If you’re a Silicon Valley fan, then you must know that it isn’t really the LOL kind of comedy but still brings a hefty amount of sarcasm on the current startup-craze hiatus. Read more
The internet has made it easy to download almost any song you want. For example, if you want to download Tamil songs, you can get them from Masstamilan. If you are an honest person and want to pay for music to support artists, labels, and distributors, illegal downloading is not an option at all. Read more
