I like Micheal J. Fox, I really do, but I was quite lukewarm on his new show, having watched the first two episodes. Shame since I had been looking forward to it so much, but I cringed at the writing in several places. It feels rather scattered and a bit confusing at times and the casting doesn't help much. Like his wife for instance, being the mother of their oldest looking like they could actually be dating as they look about the same age level.
That's Betsy Brandt, from Breaking Bad. She doesn't look unreasonably young for Michael J Fox to me.
Maybe not for him, but when you contrast it with the rest of the family, it just doesn't strike me as believable. I attribute that to the casting choices for the rest of the family.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

It should be good.

I think it was just an editing problem.

It was written like a movie and filmed like a one camera sitcom.

How involved in this is Joss in the day to day?

^Not much. Jed and his wife are the show runners.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

I agree Hostages isn't likely to last very long. I thought Brooklyn Nine Nine was okay but also, I don't see it surviving very long.

Plus 80% of those ten thousand sitcoms will be insta-cancelled and the remainder will last ten seasons.

I liked Agents of the Shield. I think it's going to be one of those shows that's on the bubble every season but manages to struggle out a few years on a small devoted fanbase like Chuck.

Avengers 2 is going to be a massive advertisement for Agents of SHIELD with ten times the manipulative impact as the superbowl because it's targeting children and not (just) drunken apes.

Yeah, ABC, Disney, and Marvel are all incentivized to make Shield succeed. It'll be interesting to see how far that carries it.

This is the best post you ever made.

It will make at least twos seasons just to use it as a fill in / lead up to Avengers 2.

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

Better than the one about Ocampan earginas?

Or when I scientifically proved that Denobulans have group sex twenty feet apart from each other?

Or the one where Kirsten Dunsten wrote the plot for upside Down to relive her glory days of Toby kissing her upside down in Spider-Man 1?

Or what about the one where I took a dump and my faecal spelt out the word RiP. Seriously it was a lower case "i" which had been dotted. My bowels were putting a hit out on me. I was jittery for a week after that!

Or... When I told the Moderator Where'sSaavik that (the character) Saavik was two faced, and he went mental for a couple posts until someone explained that one of Saavik's faces was Kirsty Ally and the other was Robin Curtis?

"Sigh"

Good times

Meh, I once got an infraction for making an unintentional menstruation pun.

Yep, I went there.
Haven't seen the pilot yet, but from what I've heard, it's awful.

Plus, it's Joss Whedon. It was doomed the moment he pitched it.
This. If it lasts beyond 13 episodes, it'll be a miracle.

But how long will the Saturday morning spinoff last?

Re: Guess which new show will be canceled first?

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. got 11.9 million viewers and a 4.6 in 18-49.

Obviously those ratings'll dip before the end of the season, but I think that guarantees it at least the full year.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine on the other hand is getting abyssmal ratings.

I have to laugh-- quite hysterically-- at people who actually think that Agents of SHIELD won't last the season, or even more ridiculous, be the first show cancelled (as that is the topic of the thread).

The ratings for the pilot were spectacular. A full-season order is inevitable to anyone living in the real world.

Do I think that there will be drop-off? Of course. But this show is in NO danger of cancellation. And I see it going more than one (or even two) seasons.
