A couple years ago my daughter was watching something on Disney XD called something like Billy Dilly's adventures (inside the earth?). Somehow a few teens ended up inside the earth and having adventures. I see this as a similar thing.

The best part was this one character they met named Yucky. He could only say "yucky," and "indeed." I think he had a hairy mole.

They did this in the 1970's.

It was called "Land of the Lost."

The sink hole isn’t even on La Brea, it's on Wilshire, and they missed the chance to use actual footage of the destruction of LACMA integrated into the scene. And Chris Burden’s lamppost sculpture as a visual touch point with them scattered over the subterranean world like the ribbons from the Peterson Musuem.

Natalie Zea is normally a lot of fun. She’s a genuinely good actress. The stuff on the surface (Dad’s visions/political coverups) is all a crashing bore.

The real fun to be had is the LOST ripoff in ancient LA.

I don’t understand why the whole show isn’t seeing the people learning to survive after they’ve gone through the wormhole.

The CGI is so bad that it must have been done on purpose this way. I was howling watching the daughter run away from the sinkhole across the green screen. The wolves were straight out of a video game circa 2002.

And yet, I would rather watch this than a network cop or doctor show.

Also it's a government coverup but 50 Dinosaur Birds fly out of the hole and the public doesn't get suspicious? Uh, What? Also can the Dinosaur Dogs chase the fat son in every episode until he loses the Covid weight? He actually used to be cute...Also why is the Indian Guy fat too? Did they cast at a weight watchers acting class? So many questions....

This is the sort of dreck NBC will try to make happen a la fetch. Millions and millions of overheated marketing and production dollars will be spent, and if even only 15 people tune in, they will pretend it’s a big hit, trumpeting it as “TV’s #1 new obsession.” It will limp along for 3 or 4 seasons, wind up on Netflix and become a streaming hit. Network TV has become the loser high school friend you hang out with grudgingly on Saturday afternoons out of boredom and desperation, saving the real fun for the cool kids at night (a la streaming platforms).

R17, sadly it’s not very campy. It is fast-paced though and entertaining enough to watch.

Comparing La Brea to NBC’s el stinko offering in Ordinary Joe, I’d rather watch 4 more seasons of the former than another 15 more minutes of the latter. La Brea may be a misguided Xerox copy of Lost, but at least it’s more of an interesting failure than putting James Wolk on a bland cop show and bland medical drama at the same time. Talk about network tv being completely bankrupt for ideas!

Are we sure it's not a copy of "Land of the Lost," like at R3?

by Anonymousreply 24October 5, 2021 7:36 PM

Definitely more Lost. One of the characters actually says, "Wow, it feels like we're on an episode of Lost." The writers at least acknowledge where they're boring their ideas from.

It's a large group of strangers- not a single family- who find themselves basically coming out of a twenty-car pile up. The scenes very much feel like they’re ripped from the plane crash in the Lost pilot.

All of the people have secrets (there’s a pile of heroin in the trunks of one of the cars; one guy has a gun, the cop is hoarding power bars(!)). There’s a stoner (Charlie), therapist (Locke), dad with visions above ground (Walt).

It’s very, very much a Lost ripoff.

r11 You realize the show isn't named because of the street, right? La Brea refers to the famous tar pits around which there is a museum and where the street gets it name. The tar pits are the last remnants of the pre-historic world on the surface in the LA area. The rest is underground, mostly in small oil deposits. Fossils and animal bones have long since been removed, hence the museum. In the TV show the sinkhole begins under the tar pits.

When confronted by the wolf, mom’s first instinct was to tell her son to RUN - which is about the worst thing you can do when confronting a predator.

Not learning any lessons from her son’s mauling, when confronted by an even larger sabretoothed cat she again yells RUN!! Thus setting off another pursuit bound to end in death.

RECAP.....Fat Son got better--but not thinner. Food is being rationed until giant DinoSloth stops over and eats it all.Weedy Indian knows they are in the past. Lezzby Cops Son has a bad lezzby attitude like his mother. Hot Dad has a flashback and is worthless beyond his hot looks. Hot Dads semi hot friend Delgado shows up to pilot. Lezzby finds her son and they team up in the woods. Seal wants med school dropout daughter Riley to operate on him (and really who wouldn't).. Momma Eve has her first black friend, Ty. DinoBear chases them and Eve gets to use her "RUN" catchphrase...They end up in a cave and Lezzby and Son are there.. Fat Son watches gay couple from a distance--is he sexually curious? Bisexual? Trans?. Fat son and Riley operate while Weedy Indian watches. Hot Daddy, Delgado and Eve were in a love triangle years ago. Is Fat Son going to end up with a new daddy? Seal is cured mere minutes after his operation--from paralyzed to wiggling his toes!! A Miracle!!. Eve and crew get out of the cave and find Mushrooms--but not the fun kind---and take them to the camp. Lezzby cop killed her ex husband proving she has Lezzby Cred. Ty is dying (wow--they really are ripping off Lost) and confesses to Eve. She confesses she was "seeing someone" when her daughters accident happened. Delgado goes into the light and the Government idiots are "surprised" when the plane goes offline---like every drone and every other aircraft they have sent thru the light for years. Delgado Parachuted out and is fine so Eve will be getting laid soon--which will be kind of sexy since Hot Daddy will be watching from 2021--a whole new spin on a threeway!!.....All Caught Up!!.....video = FAT SON interviewed at 11 min mark...There is a reason he is wearing a black tee and they are not showing his waist..

Also, they found a long dead suicide body in the cave and he was wearing a community college sweatshirt or something so they know he’s from present day.

For years the government has been sending planes and drones into the light and they always go offline. Why would Delgado be any different? An "experimental" plane but what makes it experimental? .

The last show I found that bad and infuriating was the one with Anne Heche and James Tupper called Aftermath where the show throws everything including the kitchen sink at the wall. I gave up after five episodes where you didn't know what exactly was happening (zombies, dragons / dinosaurs, virus, aliens, ancient deities, hallucinations, etc.).

It sounds like a mashup of several British shows where there's some sort of interdimensional portal going on, notably "Primeval," only in that one it's dinosaurs running around modern day Earth.

I can't be the only one who feels burned out on SF/fantasy/supernatural stuff because of so many people treating Covid as a write your own adventure game.

We see the Curson street sign and we see the ex-skeleton of the Peterson Auto Museum on Fairfax, indicating everything between those two has fallen into this new realm.

One of the things that lies between those two is an art museum. A museum known as the LA County Museum of Art. Why didn't that fall through to the new realm?

Similarly, where is the collection of street lamps that sits near one of the LACMA entrances?

by Anonymousreply 161October 25, 2021 1:51 AM

As they are running you do see the Robert O. Anderson LACAMA building imploding in the background, which was the 1980 addition. You don’t get to see the oldest buildings or the newest buildings disintegrating. The irony is, which you can see at the link below, that last year this building and the other older buildings of LACMA where completely dismantled for the new building design for the museum campus. I’m surprised they didn’t just try to encompass actual footage of those buildings in a ruinous state. So, they did try to show the sinkhole happening before the tear down of the museum rather then the actual present day demolition/construction site it is now.

They do stop showing that side of the street after the Anderson building. Most likely the street light sculpture called “Urban Light” by Chris Burden is not shown at all, even in remnants, is because he’s a very litigious artist. He already sued a park in Indonesia that had done a knock off of the work and the show was probably reluctant to tempt fate by showing even elements of it let alone it’s destruction. The new Academy Museum’s old May Department store building was probably left out of being shown as well since it’s literally just getting off the ground after decades of being established. That left the Petersen Automotive building to destroy and its iconic ribbons to have fallen through.

Maybe if they would have filmed the “other world” in LA instead of Australia they could have filmed at the landfill where they carted off the rubble to and used that as the backdrop with the actual ruined buildings as themselves.

The Found Letter was the stupidest thing of the week. Navy Seal was originally the male lead in the camp and now Hot Pilot has taken his place. Seal won't last the season. He is disposable. Even Run Mom has more men than she needs. By the way--shouldn't there be HUNDREDS of people who fell into the hole?...And yet the group gatherings at camp seem really small....I remember Lost very early on established 70 survivors (and that was before survivors from the tail end of the plane appeared on the other side of the island and brought the number up to another 20). Could someone please do a headcount because if 50 people "fell thru the hole" and are at the camp--surely there are hundreds more in the woods?

I wonder how the neurotic and image conscious director of LACMA, Michael Govan, feels about his museum being destroyed in this show, even as he himself destroys it. I hope at some point they incorporate the idea of all this great art from throughout history having fallen through with them into the storyline. It would be a shame to have that obvious potential and not use it.

Since the Academy Museum is there too they could also find Dorothy’s ruby slippers and all the other film memorabilia that’s on display, Rosebud itself could become a motif. They could do a whole musical version built around Wizard of Oz.

So they just tore down the old museum in order to build a new one in the same space? That’s rather unusual behavior for a museum.

They probably told him after the show was picked up to get in shape because he was plump in that first episode. . Nothing can save this show. Cancellation is imminent...

Leggsy went to school?...Who thinks the schools are open 5 days after a giant sinkhole opened in Los Angeles?..And where are the Dinosaur Condors?...Had to be dozens of them flying out of the hole in the first episode--and the government agents said they caught one.

I give the show credit for pushing the story along more than keeping their focus on characters' backstories and development. I kind of hate the shows where you get all the exposition about characters and almost no story development. Yes, one should care about characters to root for them, but I think it's better to make that happen through a story that unfolds in the present and not just through flashbacks.

A few weeks ago I read a theory on some site where the poster thought that the people falling through (sky people) were somehow related or descendants of the people in the village and that the holes opened up at specific time frames and locations to allow them to re enter.

SPOILER-------->>The producer said the finale will find different characters in different places.......That sounds like some of these people will find themselves in the 1980s or some other ridiculous time period beyond modern day and the far past when this next time portal opens up on Tuesday....I have never seen a show with such boring meaningless cliffhangers in all my life.....And you just know Leggsy is going to go into the past so she can claim to be the first one legged time traveler...I hope Dopehead, Fat Indian, and Fat Son transports to 1982 San Francisco. I have a feeling they would really thrive there--well, until, you-know-what happens...I could easily see Fat Son making money on the street corner on Polk Street.

"La Brea Season Finale will blow your mind".......LINK.........I will be the judge of that. Ten minutes in and I have seen nothing mind blowing.....Fat Son taking off his pants would be mind blowing......Hot Daddy and Leggsy have a weird sex vibe to me---and it grosses me out...

Leggsy and daddy are in the down under, they can console each other while mom has her other guy. Fat son can eat more and get fat again in 1988. Lily can become her own mother, and start the sister wives movement.

After two or three episodes I cancelled recording the show, but I do think I can answer this question....

The citizenry probably think the birds are simply part of the menagerie of Charles Foster Kane. They're used to them buzzing around at dusk

R376 are you being sarcastic? Do you mean "amazing" as in "amazingly bad, dumb, and underwhelming"?

This show is a cross between an episode of Xena and a 90s RPG video game. It's just so cheap.

The scene where Young Dad & Run Mom get to the portal, the panning shot where he walks away from her and towards the portal, I thought to myself "huh the beach landscape looks like a desktop background" then I realized "the fucking waves in the background are not moving" 🤣 just a lot of cheap looks.

When Leggsy is at the edge of the hole and starts collapsing, and they catch her as she started falling backwards, I was like "good thing she didn't fucking fall forward!"

The evacuation scene in Seattle with the loudspeaker blaring the announcement to evacuate, and they're like "the whole area is evacuated now!" while them & a bunch of other people are still STANDING in the Evacuation Zone. Are they immune ro being swallowed up by the earth?

It's so ridiculous.

Also, I can't believe people are creaming themselves over this garbage while Debris got fucking canceled. Debris was genuinely gripping, frightening, and interesting. Criminally underrated and ignored.

R378 = The shows creator just gave an interview and has stated very clearly The Show will NOT be explaining things like inconsistencies. They don't care about things that make zero sense on the show. It is "minutia" to them and kind of a Fuck You to the viewers. If I would have read that arrogant interview I never would have watched a single episode of this shit show...LINK

And while puzzling over, say, how all the items in a wardrobe trailer stayed on their racks after tumbling down a massive Los Angeles sinkhole can be “fun,” “getting into the nitty gritty details can get a little boring,” he said. “We do always think about questions like that,” Appelbaum noted, “but we don’t get hung up on them and make the story rest on them. We’re more into pushing the story forward.”

I would have stopped watching this show episodes ago, if it wasn't for this thread. Now I look at it as 42 minutes of mindless candy and I look forward to the posts on here bitching about it afterwards. I really wish NBC would have put some money into the show, but maybe that's part of the charm.

One more thing, are there are lot of Australians in Los Angeles? Is there an Australia Town or a Little Australia on the west side?

Was it the rating bonanza that NBC wanted?

R379, are you being sarcastic? Debris was fucking awful. I lasted three episodes, I think. It was utter shit. It just had a bigger budget than this.

by Anonymousreply 386December 1, 2021 3:54 PM

Shows get canceled, because they are too expensive and don't receive high enough ratings to make a profit. Cheap shows like La Brea get renewed, because they somehow make a profit. It's not really rocket science.

An expensive show would care about (minor) details. A cheap show has no time or budget to care about the smaller things.

Yeah, it's cheap, but it tells a story ... that better has nothing to do with Christianity or Christian Shepherd.

I mean why bother with it as a plot point? Did the discussion of evacuating downtown Seattle and the single scene set there add anything? Maybe they wrote it as downtown Seattle, filmed it and then realized it would be too expensive to show so they changed it to a small hole in the woods.

by Anonymousreply 393December 1, 2021 5:06 PM

The point was to show how the timeline has changed. Because the young girl didn't go with Isaiah the future - once again - changed, moving the sinkhole to a different area.

So who exactly is Silas and who is the parachute lady? And them ending up on the beach in prehistoric Seattle didn’t seem right, over time the ocean would have cut into and claimed land, not receded creating a forest where there was once a beach?

I had to give up on this halfway through as the show runner kept talking about all the fun to be had next season, fun for Fat Son in new location, fun for the tower and fun for the trip from Seattle to LA. I think someone needs to explain that this isn’t a comedy, the only fun being had here is the fun of hate watching.

I looked up during the opening credits and saw the name Mark Lee... for some reason that name seemed to ring a bell so I went to IMDB to see what else that actor has been in. Mark Lee plays Silas, the older white-haired leader of the cave people and my mind was totally blown when I check his acting credits and see that he was the handsome blond guy who co-starred in Gallipoli with Mel Gibson.

Since it hasn't been posted, La Brea creator David Appelbaum (and slob looking guy) is yapping about Season Two, seemingly oblivious to how lousy the first season was. He actually seems to think La Breas success has nothing to do with having NBCs highest rated show The Voice as a lead in....Anyways---->>Spoiler Alert = Get used to the coats because they will continue to film in the dead of winter in Australia, which means no shirtless guy scenes?...yawn...
