  • I thought Sea of Fire was probably one of the better names ABC has for a show.

    Some people thought Revenge and Scandal could not last more than a couple of episodes based on names alone.

    Look at these horrible names: GCB, Cougar Town, Trophy Wife, Don’t Trust The B in Apartment 23 (!!!), 666 Park Avenue, Missing, The Whole Truth, The River etc

    • Scandal was initially named “Damage Control”, which I liked but probably wasn’t broad enough.

      I blame Trophy Wife’s ratings mostly on the title. What were they thinking? Something like “The Blond One” would have conveyed a similar idea without annoying the audience. Same goes for GCB, if people complain about the word “christian” being used ironically just change the title.

    • I agree although the Dutch title was better. In Dutch we get to combine most word into a new word. So fire is ‘vuur’ and sea is ‘zee’, Together it is Vuurzee. I liked it because it took place in a seaside town. So literally sea, and it’s more powerful as one word.
      Also the name of the town were it took place was the fictitious ‘bloedzand’, which means Sand of Blood.

      • And I thought Dutch was the language of throat ache!

        • Also true, but the fact that you can fashion multiple words into a legitimate new word is pretty sweet…

  • The last remake of a Dutch serises on ABC was pure crap (Betrial), but this sounds better and so far it has a stellar cast. Curious what they make of it.

  • Boring cast, I doubt it will get picked up.
