The pilot of Running Wilde got some pretty lousy reviews, and then it was reshot/recast before getting some more lousy reviews. Which is too bad, because I actually really enjoyed it. I don’t think it was a perfect episode of television nor do I think that it is as good as Arrested Development right off the bat. But it’s a pilot. Pilots are hard! You have to introduce a relatively convoluted setup and all of the characters while still having an arc for that episode and, you know, jokes. And I think this did that just fine. And I’m really looking forward to seeing where they go with this. The pilot might not be perfect, and it’s certainly weighed down by unreasonable expectations, but this has the potential to turn into a great show if given the chance.
