Fall TV 2015 Follow Up – Minority Report

September 29, 2015 By

Watching this show was like a kid attending a party with a bounce house. We’ve been in this world before. We had a great time. It’s been a little while but we’re ready to take our shoes off and get back in. The first bounce was pretty good except the guy running the generator spends way too long explaining HOW the bounce house works.

The second jump we don’t get as high. We want to have some serious fun but the castle gets too firm, then too soft, and back to firm. I don’t know if I’m going to jump and hit pavement or a pillow. There is nothing consistent about it.

Was my analogy unnecessary and long winded in the handful of sentences it took? That’s sort of my point.

Minority Report doesn’t know what it wants to be. Too much goofy comedy stuffed into a show about governmental abuse and morality. The one thing the show did well, incredibly well, was showing future technology that is totally believable and desirable.

I’ll give it a few more episodes to see if it can find it’s footing but if it keeps bumbling on I’m going to have to drop it.
