The only thing worse than a Clip Show...

Author: ttapola from Finland

*** This review may contain spoilers *** Pilot within a Series. I've seen a couple of these but never one that was any good. "Surprisingly", none of those I saw got picked up for an actual series. Good thing that they don't make these anymore, do they? Any time you give most of the episode to characters who will never ever be seen in the show again no matter what (if the pilot leads to a series, they will appear there; if not, they will not appear anywhere because that would be embarrassing). In every Pilot within a Series I've seen, the would-be-spin-off characters were horribly written and acted. It's like no effort was made to find some talent - and when making a pilot even the dumbest show-makers now they have to *impress* the suits who make the decisions. Because of this, the embarrassing end result doesn't make any sense. Did all Pilots within a Series have a curse on them or something? I'm not sure if test audiences were used, but in any case, they would most likely have agreed with me that this episode sucks.
