(SPOILER) The Futon Critic reviews the pilot of "The Sarah Connor Chronicles". Also reviewed was CBS' "Moonlight" pilot/presentation, which will feature David Greenwalt as show-runner.

As Bonus, Brian also reviews for non-solicited shows, such as Jason Behr's "The Company Man" and Amber Tamblyn's "Babylon Fields" in those same pages.

Moonlight: "I am no longer threatened. Please continue!"
"THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES (FOX)
(Sundays at 9:00/8:00c this January)"


Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa? January? But that's so long! D:
I'm disappointed Babylon Fields didn't make it. The premise sounds really interesting.
Very cool. I'm looking forward to TSCC a great deal, but I will try to hold back on any emotional response for the first few episodes so I don't get scalded again, like I did with Drive. Reese as a new last name - nice homage to Kyle Reese from the first Terminator film.

Moonlight at this point is definitely wait and see material.

Has The Futon Critic seen the pilot of New Amsterdam? I like the premise a lot (wish they had some Whedonfolk in it) but it's ALSO on Fox. Grrrrr.

(Look who the director and exec producer is): New Amsterdam
"THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES (FOX)
(Sundays at 9:00/8:00c this January)"

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa? January? But that's so long! D:


...but that means they won't start it and then stop it for the playoffs and then, maybe, start it again. I think this is better for its chances.
Moonlight--certainly does sound as if David Greenwalt has his work cut out for him. Messin' with vampire mythos isn't really going to improve anything. Only good writing and acting can save this show, I fear.

But I shouldn't talk--I've been known to watch Blood Ties (Lifetime) just for the hot male leads.
There is another reason why one would watch Blood Ties?
The Futon Critic is going to review "Chuck", with Adam Baldwin, tomorrow. Looking forward to what they have to say. The SSC looks really good to me, and january does seem like a loooong time from now.
I've seen a couple reviews of Chuck and they are overwhelmingly positive.
They already have reviewed "Chuck" (TSCC review was posted Thursday so the 'tomorrow' referenced at the end was Friday).

Babylon Fields looks very interesting. Too bad it wasn't picked up.
