Great first episode!
20 August 2007 | by (Long Island, New York) – See all my reviews

This episode was fabulous and a great introduction to all of the characters. From the very beginning, it seemed as if the show would be very powerful in terms of emotional content. The writing was very intriguing, and I loved the conflicts between Sean and Matt. The plot line with the midlife crisis was a perfect way to start off the series with a bang, and the introduction of many side characters that will become much more important over time was very intelligent. This show is one of my favorites, and the pilot episode was no exception. While it is not the best episode, I still loved it a lot. The operations were especially nasty and disturbing.
