Legends
TNT, 9 ET/PT

It figures that the one project in which Sean Bean doesn't die is the one you should be least interested in watching — another underwhelming TNT effort that only serves to assemble every undercover cop trope in one handy spot. (See if you can't guess what the estranged wife is going to say tonight before she says it.) It's possible had Legends aired in 2011 when NBC ordered it, the show might have felt fresher. Now, however, it just seems like a waste of Bean's talents and our desire to see his character survive for once.
