if you want something to do with your current Saturday nights (can't help with the fall), you might give the Sharpe's TV movies a shot on BBC America. caught my first by accident and haven't missed one since, very good stuff. unfortunately, the series began at the start of July and I believe has only two installments left. yes, it's historical drama and not something I would normally even bring up in a conversation at Cinescape but since the column spent two-thirds of its time talking about law / cop dramas, I figured what the heck. :)

Plus, they shouldn't go up against Prison Break on Fox, that might be too daunting of a task even for heroes. : )

I've seen several of this Fall's pilots: Heroes, Jericho, Justice, Shark, The Nine, and Traveler. If I had to rank them in order it would be: 1) The Nine 2) Heroes 3) Justice 4) Shark 5) Traveler 6) Jericho The Nine is really good, and if you're able to follow a weekly drama like Lost, then this is the show for you. James Woods is great in Shark, and the show features the lovely Jeri Ryan. Traveler looks like it will be exciting for a bit, but I don't see how the show can continue past season 1. This week I'm hoping to watch 30 Rock, Kidnapped, and Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.

I don't think one should judge a pilot as to whether it is great television or not, but rather if it has the potential to be great television. I think if you look back at the starts of many great shows, you won't necessarily see a fantasic pilot episode, but you will see something that grabs your attention enough to bring you back for the next episode. Once the writers and actors settle in to a groove and get a feel for their characters, that's when you get your make-or-break.
