So far. the pilot (which was shown last season) pretty good.
The first episode (from tonight), really, really, really bad...
Also VERY different from the pilot in general, and from NCIS; which is at least in part, why it's really, really, really bad.
The characters in the pilot: Interesting, great potential.
The character in the first episode: Completely different, one dimensional, ridiculous, just very very bad.
The writing in the pilot: Intriguing, and challenging. Like NCIS, but with a twist.
The writing in the first episode: Ever see the Vin Diesel movie "A Man Apart"? Yeah, it was better than this. So was the '84-'85 season of Saturday Night Live.
At least they avoided the CSI:Miami style pseudo science glitz they were playing with in the pilot.
...Although, seriously, Linda hunt? I mean, I love the woman. She's a great actress, and always interesting to watch... but what the hell is she doing in a show about naval criminal investigations?
I'mna give it a couple more weeks, see if it gets any better. I'm not hopeful.
