Netflix’s hooked on binge-watching claim has a big flaw

As Todd VanDerWerff points out, "you'll notice that Netflix says the 'hooked' episode has no relation to how big its audience is. Instead, it's a wholly percentage-based phenomenon. If 70 percent continue on with the show to the end of season one, then that episode becomes the ‘hooked' episode.

NBC’s The Player is dumb and nonsensical

The Wesley Snipes drama, says Tim Goodman, is ", too much of a bad idea that was similar to another idea that wasn’t really a good idea. In short, NBC dealt one too many cards from the deck because The Player is basically absurd with a dollop of stupid on top and a whole bunch of empty tossed in for filler. Yes, empty can be filler.” PLUS: The Player is close to being the dumbest show of all time, every character lacks a personality — even Snipes’ character, The Player’s premise unnecessarily complicated and loopy and easy to ignore.


Heroes Reborn feels pointless when there are so many other superhero shows

The reboot of Heroes is baffling, says David Sims. "When the first (Emmy-nominated) season of Heroes debuted in 2006,” he says, "its use of time travel and other tricky narrative structures was pretty cutting edge for a network show. (Usually studios insisted that each week’s episode be fairly accessible to new viewers.) Now, shows like the CW’s Arrow and The Flash deploy those kinds of storytelling tricks every week and have whole universes of interconnected spinoffs built around them. Heroes Reborn reintroduces a world clogged with new characters and conspiracies to unravel, but it’s so hell-bent on being convoluted that those mysteries quickly lose their appeal.” PLUS: Heroes Reborn is a terrible idea that might turn out great anyway, it’s nostalgia porn for Heroes fans, the new characters aren't charismatic enough to make Heroes Reborn worth watching, Tim Kring explains why he needed to reboot Heroes, and read a beginner’s guide to Heroes.
