I knew we were in trouble when Ryan Murphy, creator of Glee and American Horror Story, said his new Fox show, Scream Queens, was a new genre he invented called the horror comedy. Like, I knew this wasn't going to turn out well at that point. But I liked the casting, and I was hoping for the best.
Then I saw the trailer.
This is basically Scary Movie sequel level, a broad and unfunny (and really ugly looking) mess - or at least the trailer is. If the show is good, it's going to have to overcome lines like "AGGGGGH! Why you got a knife in your throat!"
And who among us could overcome that line?
