A great idea for a TV show...but the execution was just awful!
The idea of seeing clips and hearing about TV show pilots that never made it is exciting and worth seeing...except in this case. Instead of talking about just a few show ideas, "The Best TV Shows That Never Were" takes on LOTS of pilots...and in the most inept of ways. The narrator is one of the most annoying in history (his style, tone and narration are hellishly bad and grating), the show makes fun of shows which aren't around to defend themselves (and the show seems to ONLY want to mock 'dumb' shows...which is ironic considering how bad this is) and the production is too much. Instead of showing the clips, the show often has wacky sound effects, unnecessary and intrusive music and it's just god-awful. Painful to watch and about as funny as cancer...and incredibly smug. Don't waste your time with this mess of a TV special.
By the way, this show currently has an IMDb rating of 8.3...an impossibly high score. The only review for the show other than mine hates it every bit as much as I did...so why this weird disaparity in the score?!
