Lights Out: "Pilot" Review

Advance Review: Lights Out is about boxing the same way Friday Night Lights is about high school football. That is to say, their sports serve as an entryway into more challenging dramas about families in crisis. Even if you hate the barbarism of both sports, like FLN, Lights Out has so much more going for it. If you can tolerate the fight scenes, know that there are even more punishing stories that take place outside the ring. I've seen tons of boxing matches - both real and made-up - and I'm familiar with all the cliches and pitfalls that surround professional fighters, and yet I was completely surprised by how much I loved this pilot.

It's a good show and yes allot like FNL but I hate the way it jumps back and forth. Just tell the story without flashbacks to the ending of a scene we saw 5 minutes ago, very annoying.
