So far it's fast, interesting, and different can ABC do it?, 8 October 1999
Author: Steve ( from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

Wasteland came in with a BANG! All of the most important characters were met within the hour time frame with a few more hanging around. Who are these people? I have somewhat of a general idea. I think a lot could be done with this show! Can I leave it to the writers to deliver? So far, so good but, the pilot was not long enough. It well deserved 2 hours so it could captivate my interest (if it is going to). A lot of good young actors going on here! It has fresh new faces everywhere. If it flops there will still be a few stars to explode from this one. Being new, the plots must blossom to keep me interested. All and all it would be worth your time to catch up and see just what happens next time!
