Yes, we saw the pilot come out several months ago, and I, too, watched it at that time.
I was waiting for the series to start in earnest, but that sadly never came to be. Because of, you know, horrible reality.
However, thanks to the magic of the Internet and spotty international distribution deals, here we are. I’ll be doing the whole season.
Let the glorious disaster begin.
I had my misgivings about this. I really did. Those first trailers looked like over-stylised, Dutch angle-fucked, substance-less trash.
But still, for some reason I can’t even pin down, I expected Scream Queens to be decent.
Didn’t I learn anything from Glee and seasons 3 and 4 of American Horror Story?
I reckon “Oh, honey. No” will be a recurring theme when it comes to MTV’s Scream television adaptation.
As I’ve mentioned a couple of times before, Scream is one of my Sacred Three: my favourite three movies of all time (Jurassic Park and Jawbreaker being the other two). I didn’t have high hopes for this version, and those hopes were not bolstered by the appalling (and, mercifully, cancelled) Eye Candy.
Well, Scream’s better than Eye Candy.
But not by much.
Eye Candy sucks.
Under the Dome ended up being unbelievably terrible.
And Cult, a CW show like iZombie, was a mess.
But hey, Veronica Mars‘ team is in the game for this one. Let’s stay optimistic.
Can you believe I Just Hate Everything hasn’t added a new show to the roster since the God-forsaken Ravenswood, back in 2013?
Hell, the trauma of watching Ravenswood is what caused the drought.
But pretty people in slasher movie style drama is worth a shot, I reckon.
And it’s only got a 10 episode order, so I can rest assured my suffering will only be temporary if it all goes so wrong.
