FOX (ended 2011)
|I thought the pilot was good. I never really took it serious I just thought it was over the top fun.|
I think that's the point of the show anyhow. It's not supposed to be taken serious. It's more like James Bond than 24 with fantastic action scenes and a little humor used at the right times. I enjoyed the pilot and will keep watching the show with interest. It looks like Guerrero is going to be solid comedic relief too. He had some great lines.
I thought it was pretty terrible. The dialogue was awful and delivered poorly. There were some parts that didn't make sense, which is made worse by the fact that this isn't a complex show to begin with. The only good performance was by Tricia Helfer.
good pilot episode. there were moments i went "oh god" because of a cliché moment .. like the part where he paused at the door , turned his head a bit to just say his name
bit confused on the last minutes of it, though i loved seeing danny glover even if it was for like a minute - i think the whole scene was too short
|Umm James Bond isnt serious? (casino royale an quantum or solace anyone?) but yeah I like the show.. I dont like the "client of the week" approach though, Id prefer an actual ongoing storyline. do "xxx of the week" shows actually last long? I mean sure CSI (and its million other spinoffs) are "case of the week" type shws but the characters in it have storylines going on behind the scenes (like in csi that one guy that was a traitor or w/e) etc etc|
His new movies are but the older ones always were a bit tongue-in-cheek and had ridiculous ideas and scenes. I bet there will be some sort of a story arc, a lot of it surrounding Chase's past, but nothing major yet. It'd be pretty sweet if they did have mini-arcs or a season long arc full of conspiracies and such.
I thought i'd give this a go seeing as a few of my regular shows have either season ended or on holiday so to speak.
The pilot was okay and have given the 2nd episode a go, mixed reactions and will give it a few more episodes before i make my mind up, has promise but i think it will be a one season wonder ( how many episodes for season 1 i don't know )...
My two penunce worth.
