FLASHPOINT, Just Stop Yourself

At some point in time, some director somewhere thought it would be creative to show 5 minutes of a scene and then flashback to 3 days earlier and start the story.  I cannot stand watching TV this way.  It makes me feel like I am having a stroke.

This show was not bad, but every episode was shot in the above mentioned fashion.  I tried to stay with it even though I yelled at the TV every episode.

To any director who is contemplating making an episode in this fashion, DON’T.  If the show isn’t good enough to show “as is” do something else.  You are welcome.

Oh, by the way, FLASHPOINT has new episodes airing on ION TV Tuesday at 10:00pm.
