Review - Gravity Season 1 Episode 1 Suicide Dummies

 While watching Gravity, I kept wondering--"What is this?" The drama parts of the show actually work quite well and I wanted to keep watching. The comedy parts, or what assumed to be attempts at humor, weren't amusing the slightest bit. With an unclear focus, Gravity doesn't come together fully.

There are elements which could make the show workable in the future. The ensemble cast is decent, especially with Krysten Ritter as the lead. The characters are, for the most part, interesting enough and expandable enough to connect to, although the whole suicide concept is dry and needs some wringing out.

Since it's airing after Party Down, which by the way is much, much funnier, I'll probably watch a few more episodes to see how everything pans out.

Score: 7.8/10
