I really need to get my "Who Writes This Crap" site up, because, oh boy, do I have rants galore with the new shows out this season.
Let's start with Stitchers. A woman who can't tell time, in a doctoral program at Caltech, isn't going to be immediately academically suspended because of another student's accusation of cheating. There's a review by the Graduate Honor Council before any such action will be taken, and one professor saying, "You're on suspension" is crap.
But let's continue. She's recruited into a secret government agency by being kidnapped by the government. Well, that's just great. We're full of two "who writes this crap?" and we aren't even half way done with the show.
The kicker for me? The one that is making me roll my eyes and start in on the "WHO WRITES THIS CRAP?" rant? The part where she goes down a secret elevator off a Chinese restaurant into an underground lair with a bunch of super seekrit office workers busy rushing around fucking computers and she's all starry eyed and awed.
GIVE ME A FUCKING BREAK.
And show me the fucking research. Show me why I should be impressed with a giant tank of water sitting next to a bunch of computers, because from where I'm sitting, that looks like an industrial accident full of deaths by electric shock to me.
I'm not sure I can keep watching this crap.
