Pilots Under Attack

Saw some pilots this week. I always say the first episode is the worst the only exception being Lost. Take that into consideration when reading the following.

Dirt: Pilot
The world of tabloid reporting and their celeb victims is given a dark and crazy theme. Lucy Spiller is the cold hearted tabloid bitch who goes around telling other crazed reporters how to get stories. She also makes side deals that cause pain and death to celebrities.

No character on this show is likable even though they have bad dreams all night long. They're almost human. This is unrealistic because the real paparazzi don't have bad dreams and could care less about honoring deals.

This is the show that Laura Allen chose over The 4400 ruining that show.

All in all I don't like the show even with the cussing and sexual content which seems forced.

Knights of Prosperity: Pilot
A group of loser plan to rob Mick Jagger in order to fulfill their boring dreams. While the main cast is dull the one bright spot is Mick Jagger. He plays a happier version of himself and goes around torturing his house boy.

Knights of Prosperity is the gangs name.

I laughed but not hard.

In Case of Emergency: Pilot
Again a group of loser who knew each other in high school meet up. Harry is the main guy who helps everyone else. A lot of money was spent on this pilot that had car chases, hospital scenes, and cakes galore.

The best part of the show is the interaction between Kelly(Kelly Hu) and Harry(Jonathan Silverman).

Again I laughed but not enough for a show with this budget. It is well made for a sitcom.

I will render my final judgement by the second episode but I may not make it through all of Dirt.
