Touching Evil pilot 3/12/04

Saw the ads for this watching SVU reruns on USA, turned out to be a pretty interesting show. I like that there is a "reason" for Creegan's odd behavior, it makes his actions easier for me to accept instead of just saying "what a weirdo." I'll be setting a Season Pass on my Tivo for this one.

I liked it too. It has a lot of possibilities if they play up the 'no morals' factor.

Things I liked:
  • the actors.
  • the score.
  • the aforementioned "no morals" thing.
Things I didn't like:
  • Pruitt Taylor Vince's shifty eyes.
  • Trying to remember where the hell I saw Vera Farmiga before...
Since Monk's ended and Third Watch seems to be on hiatus for now, i'll watch next week..

Yeah, what was that about? Either PTV was just getting way into character, or he needs a cat scan.

I'm thinking it's him.

He had 'em when he was on Alias too.

Just got done watching it and thought it was good. It wasn't blow you away great, but had interesting characters and a particular vibe to it that I really liked.

Watch 'Identity'. He does it in that movie too! I thought it was just a part of his character for it, but now I see that he does it with everything.

Got a chance to catch most of this, (missed the first 30 minutes or so), and liked it. I will watch one of the 67 re-airings to see the whole ep and will definitely set this up for a Season Pass. I just hope they don't take Creegan to far over the edge so that it becomes totally unbelievable.

Looks like the pilot did pretty good in the ratings.

I am mixed, felt a little like watching a mix of Monk and Bill at times.

Monk and what show? Bill? I kind of reminded me of Law and Order but in a good way.

It's definitely a neurological or eye problem. If you watch the Legend of 1900 it's so bad it drives you crazy...

Donovan is no Robson Green.
I must be an idiot for even bothering with yet another US remake.
