Since when is 200 years "Forever"? And would someone really learn all that much in 200 years? Some might, most wouldn't. If he was 2,000 years old or more, you might be able to say forever and that he knew pretty much everything to do with death and murder.

When it comes to shows like this that are hyped so much, the question is not whether it is that good, it is what is so bad about this show it needs so much hype. Unlike the writer of the article, I doubt this show will even make it thru the whole season. More than likely it will be gone before Thanksgiving.

Selfie (ABC), Cristela (ABC), Black-ish (ABC), Bad Judge (NBC), A to Z (NBC), and Stalker (CBS) seem to be prime candidates for early departures also. Even though receiving critics' blessings, I don't get the appeal of Red Band Society (FOX). I watched the premiere. The kids are just too healthy to be confined to a hospital (even though some of them have serious medical conditions), having school classes there (really--hospitals provide education services for patients?), and just getting into all sorts of hijinks that the doctors and nurses just wink and snicker at (kids beings kids, underage beer drinking, partying the night before your surgery, HA HA).

...since the show is being produced for a US audience. Remember that the US has been around for < 300 years, so most Americans think that 200 years is "a lot of history" and have no concept of the time scales used elsewhere in the world where historic sites have been around for thousands of years.
