HawthoRNe Is Flatlining, Do Not Resuscitate
Though I was grossly underwhelmed by the pilot episode of "HawthoRNe" I gave "HawthoRNe" another chance tonight but couldn't make it through the entire episode. Between the abysmal writing and Jada Pinkett Smith's inability to act, "HawthoRNe" is unwatchable. In light of the fact TNT has come a long way in scheduling original programming and is to be commended for having two of the best female lead series, currently, on television, awarding "HawthoRNe" to an actress of such limited range as Jada Pinkett Smith, wife of Will Smith, is a disservice to Kyra Sedgwick of "The Closer" and Holly Hunter of "Saving Grace" who both have and continue to earn the right to lead an hour long series during prime time. It is my hope that "HawthoRNe" is not renewed and the insipid performance by Jada Pinkett Smith does not negatively influence the possibility of future projects with female leads.
