I’m starting a new series based on Pilots for the upcoming season. I’ve got some screeners that I’ll be going through the next months and wanted to have somewhere to gather thoughts, impressions, etc. It may end up being “reminds me of LOST meets COUGAR TOWN meets GAME OF THRONES” (what an interesting show that’d be!) But here’s thoughts upon a first watching of BUNHEADS, a new show on ABC Family from Amy Sherman-Palladino starting June 11th.
I’ll admit that I’m not one to typically watch ABC Family, but I loved Gilmore Girls and like Sutton Foster so I gave the pilot of BUNHEADS a try. It obviously had the quick-wit that GG was known for and a few of the actors too! Overall, I thought the pilot was interesting, kind of unbelievable, but by the end, I really want to know what happens next. That’s a success then, right?
It’s not nearly my favorite Pilot I’ve watched, but I could see my 17 year old sister enjoying it. I may even stick around for an episode or two. And who knows, it may only get better.
