Fox's The Passage "looks a lot like a lot of other things"
The trailer for the Mark-Paul Gosselaar vampire drama looks like an amalgamation of so many shows, movies and video games. "The average Fox viewer sitting down to watch The Passage isn’t going to do the math to figure out what’s derivative and what just looks derivative in 2018," says Matthew Dessem. "They’ll just see the trailer—a montage of familiar images, ideas, and plot threads, stitched together willy-nilly and brought to a shambling approximation of life—and think it looks a lot like something they’ve seen before."
