Decided to check this out- really wasn't feelin' it. But maybe I'm biased because I don't watch procedurals.
The Forgotten seems like it should be on CBS. One of the reasons I don't get into shows like these is because there's no suspense for me. And nothing original. It's just going through the motions, getting clues, until they figure it out at the end. Christian Slater's latest effort is no different.
As for the show itself, the nicest thing I can say is its serviceable. But nothing special. It's all put together fine. But I didn't care for the stylized flashes of the murder victim, and the actresses on the show are all way too gorgeous for me to believe them. I would have bought varying looks and ages in the group. Not CW rejects. I also didn't like the fat phone company guy, who tries to be funny, but just comes off awkward.
But more than anything else, the show is just boring.
No thank you.
