Comcast offers for free the pilot episodes of NBC’s new shows under “HD on Demand”. So, I watched tonight “Life”, “Chuck” and “Bionic Woman”. In order:
- “Life” was boring as hell. Unfunny, uninteresting, too pedestrian. Worse than “K-Ville” on FOX.
- “Bionic Woman” is a classic US action show, kinda like “Knight Rider” of sorts. Not very compelling. Back story is just not very interesting I thought. It just didn’t pop up as a killer show.
- “Chuck” was the most interesting of the three. It was funnier, better constructed, although it seems that it also lacks a long term compelling back story. It felt a bit like a sitcom, but taken a bit more seriously.
I don’t think that this year NBC has a “Lost” killer either…
