TV Show Pilots: FOX Fall 2014 Review Round Up

All fall new shows have premiered, and I have seen the pilot of ALL of them on every broadcast network. Granted, I haven’t had the time to make a review of each of them since it’s really a ton of them so I wanted to summarize my opinion in one paragraph and score of each of them. As well as predict if it will survive or not for a second year.

Favorite Fox Pilot: Gotham
Runner Up: Gracepoint

Gotham 9/10

Gotham started off very strong as a show, showing a lot of potential, and so far it continues to live that potential. It’s a pilot that finely establishes which characters will be important throughout the show while also keeping the adrenaline moving without going into too much background. The show has had its up and downs, but is still a great quality show so far with an amazing cast.

Red Band Society 7/10

It’s a unique kind of show that definitely has a lot of ambition. Sometimes it felt like a cute Disney Channel show, other times it felt like an ABC Family teen show, and that’s when it starts to feel lost the show. It’s never clear what are the intentions of the show,  plus considering Fox’s lineup now, it simply doesn’t fit with the network either. Sadly, it seems barely anyone knew it existed, as it premiered with low ratings to even give it a chance to fulfill its potential.

Status: Certain Cancellation

Full Review: Red Band Society (Pilot) Review

Gracepoint 7.5/10

Gracepoint does a fairly well done job in building up a mystery of a murder of a young child in a town that is so rare to see a situation like this. It does well in establishing its mystery and its mysterious characters introduced for the first time. Unfortunately, I just don’t enjoy the fact that I am going to see 10 episodes dedicated to a certain event over and over again, no matter how many clues they find, it’s hard to constantly feel engaged and just want to skip and watch the last episode only.
