Does CSI: Cyber go full circle from being so bad it's good?

I've seen the ads for the past few episodes of CSI: Cyber, and they've looks so stupid that it was on par with pretty much any episode of CSI/Law and Order/NCIS that revolved around the internet, computers or gaming. But after watching the ad for the latest episode I want to know: does it go around from being so bad it becomes entertaining to watch in a so-bad-it's-good way?

It's a real show??? I thought it was a joke or a fan show when I saw an ad about it. From what I saw its another case of people writing a show about techy stuff that don't understanding techy stuff making it cringe worthy.

I watched the pilot and I think my brain just shut down to prevent any damage to it, it was just bad. I don't mean like "the show is trying to find it's legs" but just bad, as in I wasted an hour of my life on it... D:

My advice? Find something else to watch when it's on.

I don't have the energy to look up some reviews and clips, so anyone mind telling me what the show is about and why it's so horrible?

While good shows are cancelled we get stuff like this. No wonder I have a dim view on TV.

It's the kind of show that doesn't exactly go out of its way to keep the details realistic.

So... it's basically the same CSI, except with computer monitors?

Pretty much, yeah. Honestly, they should just let it die if you ask me.

shows like CSI and law and order are made for your grand mother.
Try to picture how your grandma thinks computers and the interwebs work and that is exactly why this show will be shit.

If it's anything like CSI or NCIS "tech" episodes, it's gotta be utter garbage. I don't think I'd be able to sit through an episode. That said, I haven't actually seen an episode, but I'm not about to gamble an hour of my time on it.

i saw a trailer for this last night, it involved a hacker hacking computers to set them on fire, which was described by the characters as sending fire through the internet.

I'm getting a headache from thinking about this show, it's that bad.

I suppose this is typical for media. Let's make up bullshit about what the young people like, throw it at the wall and see what putrid lumps of mangled garbage we can create from the mess.

The concept's okay...
The script/writing is bad...
The acting, while "good", is hindered by the script/writing...

Overall, it's a "spin-off" that sounds better than it should be, which still isn't saying much... and is hindered by being part of the "CSI show"-based family, in my opinion... You're better off watching something like Battle Creek if you want a good laugh...

I realized exactly how terrible it was going to be during the commercials when they show someone looking at a circuit board with some blood on it. I really don't think people need a new show to sell them misinformation about cyber security.

No. It shoots straight past so-bad-it's-good and lands solidly in so-bad-it's-horrible territory.



It's pretty firmly below the x-axis on the above chart.
