Pleasantly Dark
The best thing I liked about Killer Instinct was its darkness, and is why I ditched ABC at 8:00PM Friday night. However, Johnny Messner can't act and seems to be too preoccupied about establishing and maintaining some macho image that is more harmful to him than beneficial because it's not genuine...it's pseudo, false, and whether or not he realizes this the tactic is weighing him down. Nonetheless, Kristen Lehman and Chi McBride seemed to always save the show which is what I found most intriguing because they were just enough of the spice to overlook Messner's flaws; not yet strong enough to be the lead. The important thing about acting is to depict someone other than the celebrity, but the most important aspect of acting is to be comfortable with the camera and/or the audience. I'd welcome the return of the show simply for its darkness, which is indicative of the dark side of reality.
