Star and I love television. It's not just that I work in the business, it's simply that we really enjoy watching our favorite shows. Our tastes run to dramas, crime shows, and (occasionally) science fiction.
Every season (it seems they are literally seasonal these days, instead of just in the fall) we look through the list of new shows coming, circle the ones we a) really want to see or, b) sound like the might be interesting. Lucky for us, we embraced the DVR early on so we could watch everything we wanted.
Naturally, not all of the shows we sample end up making the cut. In fact, over the past few years, we've had a bit of s dry spell in picking shows that will last. Last year was especially harsh, as we tried (and liked) Pan Am, Terra Nova, The Playboy Club, Unforgettable, and Prime Suspect. For the winter, we also tried (and liked) Alcatraz and Saving Hope.
Our 2011 track record was so bad, the only new shows we watched that made it back for a second season were Glee and Person of Interest - and Smash has yet to return, although it's on NBC's winter schedule. Not the mention that House ended last season, as well. We still miss seeing the acerbic doctor every week.

While I only watched the 1st episode, of "Last Resort", I thought I would be able to catch up later. Guess not. I wondered though, just how long could a series, based on this idea, last? Two seasons, maybe three you could squeeze out and keep it believable.
