Malled to Death television
Genre: Comedy
Review Rating:

MALLED TO DEATH was a fun read with great humor and dialogue, and interesting and unique characters though some had elements that were a little derivative. What needs thinking about is the setup and precinct. Is this primarily about The Frozen Pebble and Amanda trying to keep her shop alive or about the mall and Myrtle trying to control all the workers there? For me, using both does mean the concept feels a little confused and busy. Further to that, what are the power dynamics of the Amanda / Myrtle relationship? Why can Myrtle order Amanda around if they have different employers? And why does Amanda listen to her? While the pilot story idea works well, I would consider whether Amanda should fight back against Myrtle and save Lydia’s job rather than just doing as she is told. This sets the tone for the series and to have the hero essentially not fighting in the pilot episode does not set a good precedent. It might even be worth saving this storyline – the sacking - for another episode. The ending of the pilot implies that the main conflict might be between Stacy and Amanda. If that’s the case, Stacy should be present in the pilot episode. If you lost the sacking streamline and instead focused o the Stacy moving in next door storyline, that would allow you to introduce the main conflict in the opening episode. You could keep the camera B storyline and use it - maybe Amanda uses it to spy on Stacy’s activities and finds out about her moving in next door this way?
