Default FX's new series LIGHTS OUT

wasn't even aware this new show was starting TONIGHT but i saw the ad for it on IMDB and then read the 84% reviews from Metacritic, which is pretty appealing.

hopefully this show's a winner and not an idiotic bust like Justified (IMO). just added it to the series recordings of my DVR.

here's the site:

Yup, looking forward to this one. I agree on the Justified thing as well, it lost me early on.

Justified had a great pilot, followed by several mediocre to shit episodes, with three very good final episodes.

FX usually makes awesome stuff. So I'm giving this a try. Season 3 of Sons was very... Not exceptional. Not bad by any means. Just... Long.

the pilot was enough shit for me to know i didn't want to watch it. the opening scene, with Pulp Fiction's Ned saying "This is bullshit..this is EXTREME bullshit" was laughable, followed by Olymphant claiming the killing was "justified" as he explained the situation.

complete ridiculousness right there. too much for me to handle/forgive.

well, i thought the rest of the episode was ludicrous too, and then i viewed the first half of the second episode and decided to call it quits.

you saying that several mediocre to shit episodes followed what i saw can only make it feel like a wise decision.
