Stars: Lauren Ambrose, Steven Pasquale, Joe Morton, Ellen Burstyn, James Woods, Richard Dreyfuss, Geena Davis Writer: John J. McLaughlin based on the book by Robin Cook Director: Mikael Salomon Original Telecast: August 5, 2012 Network: A&E If the first night of the two-part, four-hour COMA miniseries wasn’t enough torture, A&E delivers a second half that’s more excruciating as the first. Why, oh, why did this suck so bad? Here’s an example of how COMA fails miserably: whenever something interesting or suspenseful happens, suddenly the characters start looking at charts and talking ominous about what’s on the page.

That’s been a particular mitzvah to composer Murray Gold since he jumped aboard the TARDIS’ sassy reboot so many series ago.
