Well, BrainDead is finally dead… er, over. It hasn’t yet been officially canceled, but considering its ratings, it seems like it’s only a matter of time. The show that tried to combine politics and sci-fi ultimately failed at both politics and sci-fi, and as a reluctant fan of the show, the ending was disappointing to say the least.
Spoilers after the jump.
Well, BrainDead has been on for five weeks now, and it’s gotten marginally better since it started—which is a pretty low bar, considering the pilot. It’s been moved to Sunday nights, and the ratings keep going down, so all signs point to it possibly becoming braindead very soon—but despite the writing on the wall, the show has actually improved in some respects. (Of course, it still has a long way to go.)
