Dave!I am watching a new show called Believe off my DVR. It seems to be a "girl with special powers on the run" rip-off of Steven King's Firestarter, except it's total shit... which is surprising given the fact that it was created by Alfonso CuarĂ³n and is being produced by J.J. Abrams. Right now a little girl just started screaming her head off which is exactly the kind of thing I go out of my way to avoid in real life. Why somebody would think I want to listen to this crap as entertainment is beyond me. What's next? A man stares at the camera while chewing with his mouth open and clipping his fingernails?

HELPFUL HINT: If You are creating a television series, try not to actively annoy the ever-loving-shit out of your viewers. And if you do, don't expect them to hang around.

Which is advice I should have given myself when it comes to writing in this blog.

But at least I don't make my viewers sit through a bunch of commercials. That's gotta count for something, right?

    Oh good. Now I don’t have to watch it.

    I watched the first episode and thought it could have been so much better. Especially after seeing those big hitter names attached to it. I can see some potential in this show, but it’s lost on so many distractions that each one of the characters takes. I get frustrated watching the girl do stupid things (like go after her stuffed animal, knowing it’s going to put her and everyone else in danger). I might watch a few more times to see if it gets better.
