I’m nearby some network TV today and am realizing that there’s this whole strata of cop shows that exist where C-list actors go to die that are an endless sea of sorta-attractive white people showcasing Normcore wardrobes and always either Talking Gravely or Running With Guns. I remember seeing an ad for the Ion network — all their shows are this genre — and it looked like one big, endless Gap ad… with guns.
This seems like the mainstream drama equivalent of house-flipping reality shows. I.e., what you do when you have no ideas.
Edit: and always the sorta-shaky camera. Always.
