Wasn't bad
21 September 2006 | by (Perth, Western Australia) – See all my reviews

Someone finally drops the 'big' one - or was it a couple of smaller ones?

I decided to give this pilot a shot, for the sake of having nothing better to do last night. It wasn't bad for a first episode but I can see the novelty wearing off pretty quickly. It's all been done before anyway, hasn't it?

I found most of it pretty predictable, and the characters seemed rather one dimensional. But I suppose (well HOPE) they'll develop as the weeks go by.

It doesn't seem, at this point at least, as though I am likely to be hanging on the edge of my seat waiting to find out what happens next. Well I'll watch it next week and, who knows, it might develop a twist and I'll be forced to eat my words.
