In a different world, CBS' Zoo is the kind of show you would bet good money that someone made as a joke, just because they were pissed that people liked the book, and wanted to show them how stupid it really was. That, or they figured they could make some money off the people who would watch it. Well..., I guess that second is kind of how it works.
Utopia might have been an interesting experiment, especially considering the extended coverage, but it's designed to produce as much nonsensical drama as possible, and that's not anything new.
Reckless, a rare, completely garbage offering from CBS, is apparently by, for, and about people who have never watched television before. It's off-day soap opera material delivered by people whose list of positives (that we care about) begin and end with the fact that they are simply fantastic looking.
