I'm dumb, posted to the wrong Aquaman :)
100 words? How does one delete a goof like mine?
As far as pilots go, one of the best I've seen. Almost like 2 hour feature film in 45 minutes without (somehow) being rushed.
I'm a fan of smallville, so I'm biased. I really enjoyed Smallville's AC who did an amazing job of creating a character in one episode that seemed like he'd existed for several seasons. Great acting. That said, I'm glad they went with a new actor since the show takes place long before that Smallville episode and I would've been comparing the two characters by the same actor the whole time.
The story seems deep and involved with lots of potential, so I hope some network picks it up!
Rating is based on my opinion of just the pilot for itself and compared to other pilots. Plus, my bias towards hoping the show gets picked up.
