Wish to know info about the pilot, whether or not it had the same title.
26 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Any time I have seen a TV series, especially one like "Mann & Machine," which I found to have some of the best irony subplots of any movie or TV series, I find out what was used as a pilot for that TV series. By viewing the pilot, I find myself even more interested in the series because things are generally revealed about the plot, or the characters or something intrinsic, that makes me want to see how it plays out in the upcoming episodes.

I have been trying to corroborate who the actors were in the pilot, and to find out the name of the pilot, which I think was a made-for-TV movie, but have had no success. I recall Craig Stevens and Gary (of Alien Nation TV series fame) as two of the main actors in the pilot. For me, this pilot allowed me to enjoy the TV series more. Does anyone recall the name of the movie?
