The show (whose executive producers include Shonda Rhimes) risks being just another costume drama with tiresome power struggles and who-cares romantic entanglements.
What remains to be seen is whether Still Star-Crossed can find that sweet spot again as it develops - or whether it will continue to coast along on its lavish, gorgeous aesthetic.
The writing is so scattered, it's hard to find anyone, Montague or Capulet, to root for. A plague on both their houses.
Merely drafting a sequel to a Shakespeare tragedy smacks of tremendous, ill-advised moxie.
Still Star-Crossed is off the tracks from the opening moments. Rhimes' customarily snappy dialogue has been replaced with something that sounds like special-ed Shakespeare, interrupted by the occasional thudding anachronism.
