TV Review: Eye Candy (Pilot)

It’s based on R.L. Stine’s best selling novel of the same name and stars Victoria justice as a New York woman suspects that one of her online dates is a serial killer.

When the show was announced I thought I’d check it out, so I watched the pilot with hope of it being the next best thing and my heart sunk. Eye Candy has great potential, the premise and mostly Lindy’s back-story in the prologue was really good but the show kind of sucks. 
I might be getting too old for this but the pilot was one of the worst I’ve seen this year. The mediocre acting alone was painful to watch, the main characters introduction was weak as was the story line. Or maybe it was based on the assumption that we’ve all read the books – I didn’t. They went “Game of Thrones” on us by killing a supposedly important character and it did not even worked because they never gave us time to care. 
However, there’s a silver lining, at the end of the pilot there was the “this season on Eye Candy trailer” that gave me a sliver of hope. 

So I’m gonna hang on and cross my fingers because I want this show to be a good one. There’s so much room for improvement, considering that Jason Blum with Blumhouse (The purge, Whiplash) is producing. 
So I’ll keep watching desperately hopping that the trailer at the end of the pilot wasn’t the best thing about the show.
