CBS picked up Three Rivers for the fall season, but I wonder if this show is already doomed because of what shows tow of the people who are working on the show worked on in the past for CBS. Alex O’Loughin looks good with a shorter do and not wearing black, but I wonder if this show is jinxed just because of what happened to his last show on CBS…Moonlight. His past work isn’t the only one that has me worried, the show creator’s Carol Barbee’s past luck has me beyond nervous. You see she worked as a show runner on two others shows I loved on CBS that met their ends way too early…Jericho and Swingtown. And if their CBS pasts aren’t bad enough, there is already one major recast happening because Julia Ormond is no longer with the show.
So I wonder with all these factors, should I waste my time on a show that will probably have me hooked, make it to May, end in a cliffhanger and then CBS will cancel it. What do you think?
