Why NBC's 'Outlaw' Was Doomed from The Start

Allison Waldman

If you've been watching NBC's new legal drama 'Outlaw,' (http://television.aol.com/show/outlaw/11756128/main) you were probably ticked off to read yesterday that the network has halted production on the show (http://www.tvsquad.com/2010/10/07/is-outlaw-about-to-be-canceled/).Why NBC's 'Outlaw' Was Doomed from The Start (http://www.tvsquad.com/2010/10/08/why-nbcs-outlaw-was-doomed-from-the-start/)

This is too bad, its one of the new fall shows I actually liked watching.

Things were just getting interesting with him turning into a gambling adict and his assistant playfully teasing her male co worker...

I think it was a bad move putting this on the Friday night timeslot though. We never watched it live only back on the DVR.

I really liked this show, it had some interesting dynamics between characters and some long range topics that could have made it interesting. Jimmy Smits is always enjoyable to watch.

I was planning on dropping this one. Didn't really cut it for me.

It sounded to me like a failure waiting to happen when I first heard about the series in January, when it was still going by the name "Rough Justice".

It was probably the most ridiculous idea fora network show since Hogan's Heroes and I think that stopped many from even trying it out.

Right, a ridiculous idea derived from Academy Award winning (William Holden) "Stalag 17", which lasted 6 seasons. "Geronimo, you boTHer me";)

KAB the setting f a POW camp was the same between Stalag 17 and Hogan's Heroes but the part about the prisoners running a spy network out of the camp and making the whole thing a sitcom instead of a drama are little details that were unique to Hogan's Heroes and part of what made it more than a little implausible.

BTW i actually like Hogan's Heroes but an implausible or ridiculous idea fora sitcom is one thing. Doing the same thing with a drama is another.

There have been many more implausible shows besides Outlaw and HH over the years. Arnold Ziffle ring a bell? Cousin It? Man From Uncle? The Six Million Dollar (name your gender)? TV is generally implausible...even the reality shows. It just has to be smart about it...which Outlaw was not.

You don't call Hogan's Heroes a sitcom? What did you think it was a documentary?
