I like fx. I like the premise of 'Lights Out'. I like the cast. So why has fx failed to make an entertaining show? With such a long history of acclaimed TV entertainment, I guess not all offerings can be a hit, but one about boxing should be. I cannot explain it as anything but boring so far( 4 episodes into the season). Does anyone agree? It is a rich and nuanced story, but the pace is slow and dull. I suppose underlying all my ennui and angst about 'Lights Out' is that fx's most entertaining new show in my opinion, 'Terriers', was not picked up for a second season due to low viewership. That show was far more exciting and wrought with potential. I digress, but feel 'Lights Out' should look for a knockout soon or throw in the towel.
