This is an appealing apocalypse series that might lure enough Hunger Games and mystery fans (provided some of the illogical elements are explained away convincingly). Plus, The Voice is a strong lead-in.
Ugh. This doesn’t face much competition in its Friday slot, but the culture-clash drama about a girl at a N.Y. law firm is hammocked between two shows (CSI: NY and Blue Bloods) that are vastly different in tone. And it’s not good.
Kicking off Wednesdays with dubious sitcoms is, well, not a good strategy. Neither is working with animals. So despite a fine cast (Justin Kirk, Tyler Labine), there won’t be enough monkeyshines to save this one.
