    Easily the best dramatic pilot that I’ve seen so far this Fall. But I’ll wait to post my full write-up on the first episode until after the official premiere.

    Even though the pilot has been out for a hot minute, I am really looking forward to it next week. The reviews from the critics and some of you guys on both forums has risen the curiosity.

    Don’t get me wrong, this is no Lost/Breaking Bad-level pilot episode, but it has a remarkable realism to it. Not only that, but it is rare that a PILOT could work so well as its own lead actress’ Emmy tape. That’s all I’ll say for now, but Claire Danes is terrific.

    Has a 92 on metacritic after 23 reviews – sensational.

    I sincerely hope this doesn’t turn out like The Killing where there’s a great pilot, and then it’s the most frustrating thing on television. However, how long can this show last under this sort of premise? Will there be seven seasons of a game of cat and mouse? Perhaps I should see more than just the pilot to get a better grasp of how things might turn out.

    This is the best pilot of the year and one of the very best of the past 10 years. Really. It`s just incredible. The directing and editing are amazing, and the cast is great (and Danes has a tape few actress ever have a chance to get).

    It`s such a riveting and intriguing episode, cant wait to watch more of this show.

    Yeah, I agree with everyone, the pilot is ridiculously strong. Danes could easily win an Emmy for this episode, that’s how strong it is. Even Lewis proves he’s a threat to win next year.

    Wow…the reviews coming in are insane…high marks all across the board and the acting is getting major praise.  Claire Danes looks like a clear contender for Actress at this point.  And it appears to be in the race for several other major awards as well – Series, Directing, Writing, Actor, Supporting Actor, Supporting Actress.

    Why isn’t there more buzz on this?

    And WTF is going on here in Canada…I can’t even find a broadcaster that will be airing what seems to be the best reviewed new show of the year?!?!?  Help!

    Bump for tonight. Since this is mixed with Dexter, it’ll be easy to catch/remember the show every week.

    Danes could already start searching for a spot to place her third Golden Globe.

    It was a great pilot. Acting top notch and by god the writing was great. This was one of the few time I’ve seen a cable show without noticing that it had no act breaks. Usually without them the story feels like it’s going nowhere but this is different.

    Psycollogical thrillers (eg: damages) always work better with emmy voters than full all out thrillers. But could this be 24 all over again? A highly rated thriller who gains respect in the comunity for years and then finally wins in its 5th bid, hence beating competition like The West Wing, The Sopranos and Grey’s Anatomy?

    My only concern is that if Homeland wins The Good Wife will have to wait another year. Maybe Homeland could win the Golden Globe and TGW the emmy. That would seem fair. I’m saying this because I feel emmy voters will think three times before voting for mad men next year. Four times is a lot. A milestone only 4 shows have ever reached.

    I don’t think I have ever liked a pilot more than I loved this one. Claire Danes’ character may be one of the great creations of the 21st century. She’s a pill-popping CIA operative that enjoys picking guys up at bars, planting cameras in people’s homes, seducing her superiors, turning meetings in to interrogations, and saying “Fuck this shit!” She’s the greatest character I’ve ever seen, and Claire Danes is bringing it.

    This truly was a great pilot. I was sucked in right away, and it never made me lose interest. The acting was great all around. Can`t wait to see where it goes from here.
