The new "Doom" isn't for everybody...

Bethesda and ID Software’s new vision of “Doom” hit shelves earlier this month. The idea behind it wasn’t to make a first-person shooter that competed with the “Call of Duties” or the “Halos” of the world, but instead make a game that took the genre back to the Doom games that started the series.

Fox’s “Wayward Pines” told a complete story in its first season and while it left room for a second season, maybe Fox would have been better off leaving well enough alone. The series gets a disappointing second-season reboot (9 p.m. Wednesday, WPGH) that brings back some first-season characters (several for nothing more than glorified cameos) and introduces a new lead and elevates some supporting characters to leading roles.
