A great pilot--why didn't it get a series?
22 October 2002 | by (San Jose, California) – See all my reviews

This was apparently the pilot for a tv series that never got made. With all the nonsense and repetition on American tv, it's hard to see why, except that most people who are interested in early tv are not in the target demographic (under 30). The 40s fashions and makeup are great (it looks like the Mask) and the characters are attractive and interesting. The best vignettes refer to the early days of live tv, when you couldn't show cleavage and black musicians were forbidden to talk to the audience. Not great, but entertaining.
