I keep telling my self: "It's just an era.. a fashion.. something that will not last forever. Because you know.. God is so merciful.. The most merciful.. and all of those shows will go away soon, and burn in hell!".
That's simply because the spreading of the forensic medicine's shows like a pestilence, at all the channels, to the extent that every single time I sat to watch any one of them, I found myself ready to throw up, by their horrible scenes, bare violence, and the stupid painful performance!
What did ever happen to the TV that I know, love and respect?!! In the 1970s, we had a lot of the detective shows, and after that era ended, all the people, mostly the next generation of viewers, said: "HEY, that is corny!". Then in the 1980s, we had the melodramatic soap operas, and after that era ended, another voices said: "HEY, that is corny!". My point is; when will it be the time to witness the end of THAT disgusting era, and had the opportunity to hear by my own ears a lot of people crying: "We had enough.. That became corny.. So corny!". Well, it's coming undoubtedly, and I pray for it.
All of that fuss comes from that kind of producers who want more money, and the way to have it is by exploiting the success of whatever seems to have the best rating, to milk it like a cow. So you'll have lots of it, even if it repeated itself so many times, along with cloning it also. And so the creativity became poor during the years, with no enthusiasm for something new. Till that dumping, glutting and flooding drain all the good and bad ideas, and all the patience of the viewers too!
Of course I'm talking about (The X Files) in particular, which had the distinct preeminence, and the huge successes, all over the 1990s, and I really love it. But the producers perverted it utterly. Firstly, by the extension of it, for more than its endurance, since they continued it for 9 seasons which nearly 3 of them were unnecessary. And secondly, they cloned it, in so many forms, using some of its own elements: one devoted male cop, one sincere female cop (not emotionally involved, or that what seems!), one helpful superior, a lot of bizarre horrific crimes, abnormal killers, physical terror and using the forensic medicine to solve the cases. So without the science fiction factor, nor the conspiracy theory, then you'll have (Bones) or (Killer Instinct), because those elements made another, not so far, formula: The forensic show!
Hence, no wonder when you find half of (Killer Instinct)'s producers worked in (The X Files) before, using the very same elements to attract the audience to watch what's assured and contented for them (as producers!). Therefore, we've got at least a dozen of that kind which became too repulsive to watch, and too boring to stand!
OH GOD! That was my comment after (Killer Instinct)'s promo. It's another corpses, blood, psycho serial killers, nasty series. But after watching the episodes, I must admit, the writing was above mediocre, and the mysteries were good unlike everything else; such as the acting which was so poor. (Johnny Messner) overacts. Just remember the scene when he met his father! And I think he can be used in the movies trailers, since he has the right VOICE to do such a work. There is no new nothing about (Kristin Lehman) character, so her performance. And as for (Chi McBride), let me tell you, he is doing all of what he already did in (Boston Public), with the very same sad presence, the very same upset face, and the very same baldness (every time I see his bald head, I fight this desire to grow a plant there!).
And that laughable direction with all the too many sudden zoom-ins, like it's an old movie from Hong Kong or something!, plus that strange opening credits which present the heroes like there are the actual killers!!
Who's to blame? I believe the producers firstly and mainly. So it's not killer instinct, No my dear friends, it's producer instinct which made such a repeated unoriginal show to have it canceled after 9 episodes. However, the other analogous CRIMES are still on, and THAT instinct is still loose.
