My favorite Pilot of all TV shows

8/10
Author: muraliavarma from California, USA

This pilot had everything that the show had to offer, all summarized into a 1 hour capsule. That in my book is the perfect Pilot episode. The first few minutes are scintillating, with the radio show discussing about what the new coach(Eric Taylor) has to offer. After this we see an interview where all the football players are introduced. I found both of this to be extremely effective ways of introducing all the characters without making it look clichéd.

But, the best part of the first half of the show was the absolutely stunning soundtrack from Explosions in the Sky. The background music perfectly suits the theme of the series, the touching moments, the passion during the game and most of all during Coach Taylor's inspirational pep talks.

The twist at the end of the Pilot sets up the whole series beautifully Some of the characters undergo massive transformations, some happy, some sad. All in all, my favorite episode mostly because I like to think how the series would have evolved if it had not been for that major twist in the episode...
