Yeah, even three episodes in I wasn't sure if I wanted to continue The Wire.

When did it pick up? I have yet to start it. I keep saving it for a rainy day, so many things to watch.

Great pilot; better show.
Absolutely, but it was one of the more interesting/gripping pilots that I've seen in a while. Deserves a spot on the list

Battlestar Gallactica and Homeland got me on episode one. Sherlock too.

Still need to catch BG. I still don't enjoy Homeland that much but the pilot was good.

Haha does Sherlock count? That was like a movie. I enjoyed it though. Haven't watched any other ones


Veronica Mars and Party Down's pilots were solid as well

I didn't get into this show until mid way through the second season. But I also watched a big chunk of the first season on my friend's Netflix when he wasn't using it. Then I did the free month and watched the rest of the series into the past season. Now I'm hooked.

Miami Vice's pilot, on the other hand, not only dwarfs the rest of the series, it's good enough to be a standalone, theatrically-released movie.

I think a lot of people, myself included, who watched the pilot of Mad Men a bit after it originally aired forget that no one knew that Don had a family until the end of the episode, correct? I don't recall the advertising campaign but I do remember reading that it was somewhat of a shock.

Getting into the show later when everyone knew that Don had a family potentially doesn't have the same impact as note expecting it at all

Damn I never thought about that, but now that I think about it really makes sense as to why Betty wasn't in the pilot until the last scene

It just made me hate Don. It was like, okay, so he has no standards basically, he's just a shit man.
