Reviewing a new TV series is often a guessing game. Networks typically send out only one or two episodes, including a pilot that has a bigger budget than a standard episode and often a hired-gun director who might not stick with the series. Projecting how the show might play week in and week out becomes a challenge, to say the least.
With that in mind, Zap2it is changing our approach to initial reviews. See below for slightly longer than tweet-length reviews of five new series debuting from Feb. 4-13.
