The worst TV show that actually was
17 January 2005 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

A cavalcade of pilots that never made it, this is one of the most cynical, exploitative and revealing pieces of network TV you're ever likely to see. The networks should have the the common decency to bury creative efforts that somehow failed, instead of editing them for silly bits and adding an utterly inane and obnoxious commentary track.

P.S. The American pilot episode for the popular British show Red Dwarf is in this show, listed as a failure. The original Red Dwarf was one of the biggest hits on British TV ever, running for six seasons, which shows there was nothing wrong with the premise, rather the utilization by the network in the US version. It is a terrible thing to stomp on someone's creativity in this manner.
