My favorite Pilot of all TV shows
muraliavarma from California, USA
12 July 2009
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...
