Newest entry in our continuing series, Lost is gonna ruin network television: The ABC pilot Invasion, a new alien-themed drama about what happens in a small Florida town after a hurricane hits.
It's not that I'm trying to be a pessimist. I'm just worried that the suits have totally lost sight of the ingenious storytelling and unique premise that made Lost (and Desperate Housewives as well, if you were wondering; there are plenty of suburban scandal soaps in the works) so popular.
Trying to copycat shows that exploded in popularity because they weren't copycats to begin with is a new definition of irony. And like rain on your wedding day, irony rarely goes well for those involved.
