Go On Season 1 Review “Go Deep”

When shows are being described to the public before they air, creative types give the hard sell about how their television show is deeper than all the rest. It’s got something important to say, but it’s going to say these important things in ways that entertain and provoke discussion about the meaning of life or something equally as important. More often than not, what results from all of this hot air is a show similar to 96% of what already exists on the television screen. If it’s lucky, these shows simply recede to the middle where shows are watched by some but discussed by none. After waiting for Go On to hit its stride all season, it’s time to place the show into the pit of despair with the rest of the also-rans. Last seen swinging his junk around at the winter TCAs touting the massive success of his new broader programming, NBC President Bob Greenblatt is back in the basement and saddled with shows like Go On that will neither move the needle nor crater to the point of meriting cancellation. It’s an absolute bummer of a place to be considering how well this show started.
