Pretty great.
8 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've seen this pilot a few times now, on both DVD and at the screening in Cambridge that Declan mentioned. While there are some flaws in the production, none are glaring; what is glaring is the originality of the piece. There are very few works in the TV/Film space that manage to be simultaneously as cynical and sweet as Unbalanced. Sweet in the earned way, not in the treacly sense. This pilot not only does a great job of setting up what are sure to be fun adventures down the road - it also creates characters you want to get to know. Ian and Jane are a brother/sister team whose history you want to plumb and whose rich fantasy life you want to ride along with on the highs and watch, rapt, from a concerned distance when it dashes them on the rocks. I daresay that most audience members will be seriously intrigued by the Drs. March and Ian's boss as well.

Oh. And also? It's hilarious. Very funny writing and acting create gags that make it worth overlooking some occasional flaws in the cinematography etc. A diamond in the slight rough, this independent pilot could clearly make a series that could capture the hearts of viewers.
