questionsdo you think "sons of guns" has jumped the shark?


That's getting off track or losing focus, not "jumping the shark". That phrase means a show that has done something ridiculous (like having Fonzie jump his bike over a pool of hungry sharks) in a desperate effort to get the attention of the viewers. In family shows it's very often bringing in a new kid, which was used in an inventive twist by Joss Whedon in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Jumping the shark for a show like Sons of Guns would likely involve leading the audience to think someone had been shot for real on screen.


Last I saw Kris and the daughter were at a wedding chapel. That reminded me of the Fonz jumping Jaws.


all the reality shows feel a need to add drama and conflict to attract viewers. (storage wars, whale wars, marijuana wars, auction wars, etc)
