Great Work by the Casting Team.
17 April 2011 | by (Austin TX United States) – See all my reviews

The brilliant work of the casting team (Steve Brooksbank and Mary Jo Slater) deserves high praise here. The lead actors have proved themselves elsewhere and they almost make this work. Unfortunately, the poorly directed pilot episode probably means this new series is DOA. Poor choices were made: in the overall tone, pacing, camera angles, shot selection, action that violates screen direction repeatedly; and so much more. The chaotic work of the director takes the viewer out of the story, causes confusion about what is happening, sets up and then deflates the impact of comedic punchlines, etc. Editing and music cues improve upon but cannot cover up the badness of the raw footage. The director of this mess does not appear on camera, but he is the most important character in this pilot episode and, apparently, that was just what he was going for.
