As pilots go, it was typical. Too much time introducing the characters. But that is how it works. IMO, you can't judge a show off of its pilot. They are usually dreks. The writing is never up to where it should be. Too much to do in the pilot to really "tell the story" and this one was typical.
Now, in places it did have the old show feeling, even without Jack Lord which surprised me, but again, the introductions of the characters took too much time to really develop the story. It was rushed.
I will really start looking at it seriously next week. It wasn't so bad I won't watch again, so that is a good sign for me but if that was a regular episode, then I would be really asking myself how much do I really like these characters (Scott Caan doesn't impart the same feelings for me for the Dano character like James MacArthur did in the original, Caan's Dano whines too much and I hope that comes to a halt real quick, Dano's ex-wife calling all the time is REALLY a turn off to the character, especially in a high speed chase.) and do I really care what happens to them. If I say I don't care, I am gone, pretty pictures or not.
