“Alas, all of this development was rendered moot afterward. This is because, like Star Trek: Voyager, Andromeda basically jettisoned its premise by its second season and was content with simply being an action show, with an ineffectual captain to boot.”
“Gordon Ramsay’s show, after seven seasons, has become a highly processed, overly salty, homogeneous mess.”
