 ABC has this new time travel show coming out called Time After Time.  I cannot make twitter stop showing to to me 10 times every time I log in.  Normally I don't care about the overly aggressive twitter ads that don't go away even when I tell them I don't want to see it every time it comes up, but this one centers all the ads around "SUPER SEXY JACK THE RIPPER! ""JACK THE RIPPER HAS NEVER BEEN SO HOT! " "THE MOST DANGEROUS MAN IN THE PAST IN IN OUR TIME (AND HE'S HOT!)"   That last one comes with clips of JTR apparently seducing a woman with the intention of killing her, and actually makes me nauseous every time I see it.

I've hated the Jack the Ripper fascination for years (and, lets face it, the only reason he's allowed to become such an icon with a "fascinating and mysterious" reputation is because he killed prostitutes and got away with it) but this is a whole new level.

I was initially interested when I first heard about it because I liked Nicole Ari Parker in Rosewood, but I noped out when I learned Kevin Williamson was involved, especially with his last few shows and the Jack the Ripper angle.

Hopefully it gets cancelled fast.  (Parker is playing a WOC in a Kevin Williamson show, so she'll probably get killed off fast anyway.  The alternative is 8 years trapped in a show that constantly reduces you to non-stop sacrifice and magic support for all your white "friends" while the creators treat you and your character like crap behind the scenes, too.  At least Kat Graham will be escaping that and hopefully get a job that appreciates her more.)

But, also, how is it that ABC can find room for this but can't work in Still Starcrossed?  "Insult to injury" doesn't even begin to cover it.

I was interested until I saw it was about the Ripper. There's another time travel show called Making History that looks far more interesting.
