Off the Map: After a cheesy, uneven, uninspired start, this show evolved into something we actually looked forward to every Wednesday. But all the hype and the lame, self-conscious pilot turned off too many people. The ratings were down, and actors have started jumping ship, knowing the show is over. The season (probably series) finale left us with many questions. Will the amazing Mina Minard return Tommy’s feelings of love? Will Ryan live? Will Mateo live? WILL THE SHOW LIVE? Too many questions, and we will be annoyed if the show is canceled and we completely wasted our lives on a season of this show and got no closure. Leeard is taking this worse than Ern is (probably because Ern watches Grey’s Anatomy and so Off the Map won’t leave as big of a gap in her doctor drama schedule). Ern still thinks there is a chance for renewal. Leeard does not. But Leeard loves it.
Season grade if we get a next season: B-
Season grade if we don’t: D-
Being Human: This ending was much tidier. Maybe too tidy (until the very last scene, that is). Poor guy-who-plays-Jacob-on-LOST. Not only can you not act, but you always get killed off of your shows. This show has been renewed for a second season, to air on SyFy. One of us wants to check out the BBC version over the summer, once most of the regular TV goes away. But this version has been pretty enjoyable, and we will be tuning in next year. We liked the season as a whole, but the finale was only “ok.” Our minds weren’t blown and we think they played it too safe.
Season grade: B+
