Angela's Aye-yi-yis

I’m in the mist of watching the pilot for Angela’s Eyes, a new Lifetime series about an FBI investigator who is good at telling when someone is lying. I cannot think when I’ve seen a more blatant example of everyone explaining everything to each other, long-time coworkers speaking in stilted explanatory dialog in precisely the way that people don’t.

I’m posting this review now, before watching the end of the show, so that I don’t feel I need to see any more of this garbage. Almost every line of dialog is painful to hear. If you want to learn what to avoid in dialogue-writing, watch this. Otherwise, don’t.
