THE TERMINAL LIST: SEASON ONE
Starring: Chris Pratt, Taylor Kitsch, Constance Wu, Riley Keough, Arlo Mertz, and Jeanne Tripplehorn
Creator: David DiGilio
The Terminal List is wholly unremarkable. But, even if you ignore the overly serious tone, generic and convoluted plot, and general predictability, it could have been an okay enough, Tom Clancy-style distraction had they cast someone other than Chris Pratt as the lead. Pratt’s main appeal is his goofy charm, so forcing him to play a brooding silent type kills any chance this show might have had at being watchable. Pratt just doesn’t have it in him (it really needs a Liev Schreiber type of guy), making this series further evidence that “The Worst Chris” isn’t all that great outside of Guardians of the Galaxy.
