Lookwell: The funniest show you never saw
27 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some time ago, the cable network TRIO aired the pilot for LOOKWELL as part of its "Brilliant But Cancelled" series. I TiVoed it and have watched it many times since.

Ty Lookwell is the role Adam West was born to play, which is good as it clearly was written for him. The writing plays to West's strengths as a comedian, particularly his surreal delivery of lines that no one else could say without cracking up.

It might have been exhausting to keep this going week after week, but I sure would have liked to see them try.

Someone should assemble a "great unsold pilots" DVD series; LOOKWELL could certainly headline the comedy edition.
