Looking into Scream Queens, I thought the show was a....mixed bag. Once apon a time, I used to watch a show called Glee but that 'like'(I say like not love) has been gone since the writing gotten bad, and I also happen to be a fan of American Horror Story, even with it's writing flaws. So safe to say, my expectations for this show was definitely high. When I heard the news that Jamie Lee Curtis, Jamie Lee Curtis, a scream queen legend, was going to be on this show, I was ecstatic, alongside Lea Michelle (Glee) and American Horror Story alum Emma Roberts, who is good at playing bitchy roles.
Once I got to viewing this though, my reaction was kind of meh. But I do have my fingers crossed just a little for it to get better. I do believe this show have SOME potential. The show seems to be obviously inspired by Black Christmas and Sorority Row, I'm talking about the remakes, not the originals. It has the same bitchiness and cattiness from the female cast, and it also harbors this strange, over-the-top, so bad-it's good vibe from those movies as well. Hell, the show even go so far as to cast one of the actors that starred in one of those movies. Sooner or later, I'll be reviewing them in a while. ..
The humor is a bit off-putting. It hits but then it misses. Though, the writing is the biggest problem I have with the show. It's just so....cliché. But for those of you who like the show, this isn't a bad review. I just wasn't impressed with the pilot that much. It didn't sink me in. Then again, it's just a pilot. Hopefully, the show will get better in time. and I'll probably love it but only time will tell.
P.S. Nick Jonas is Smoking Hot! Now that's one of the highlights I've seen in the pilot.
Be sure to catch an episode tonight at 9/10 est.
