Everwood - Pilot alert

For those late to the Everwood party, the WB is re-running the pilot for the show tonight (Monday) at its normal 9 p.m. EDT timeslot.

Unfortunately, it's the cut version, as the original (and still un-repeated) pilot was 2 hours.

Well, we who were late to the Everwood party have to take what we can get. Perhaps it'll be broken up into 2 parts? Or is it really going to be chopped to hell to make it all fit into 1 hour.

Read this thread from Sept. and you'll see that the first episode was only around 70 minutes.

Hey, I really enjoyed the pilot.

Does Nina have a newborn as well as Sam? For the life of me, I can't recall Nina's baby on the show, but Nina was definitely pregnant on the pilot.

Also, is it just me, or is Mr. Irv a dead ringer for Shrek? It's uncanny!

She does give birth in a later episode, but she is a surrogate mom, which is why the baby is never on the show.

I forgot what was cut from the 10 minutes, but I remember thinking that when I saw the 1-hour version that I preferred having the extra part.

I think one of the cut scenes was Ephram's wet dream, i can't remember. I thought that was funny.

Ah, that makes sense.

Ephraim's wet dream was good for some chuckles as well. Gregory Smith is a good young actor.

If they ever needed to cast a young Fred (from Angel), they should use Vivien Cardone (Delia).

It's a bit odd to see Treat Williams without facial hair.

Is Everwood always widescreen? I can't remember, but I think this looks different than the usual episodes. Maybe I'm just going insane...

I believe Everwood has always been 16x9 (to take in the landscape of the mountains).

It might be that it was only shown on regular tv's in widescreen for the pilot, but i don't know for fact.

IIRC they cut the scenes out with Ephram and Andy when he was washing his sheets and Andy says something about puberty. I missed the first 15 so I don't know what they cut from there.

Great first effing episode, this pilot really has everything I love about the show in it.

Yeah, that's what I don't like about WB's series premiers, that they are longer, and get edited down for the repeats. Hopefully, we will see the uncut pilot on DVD in the future!

For those who are still behind, I believe they are doing a super Easy-View with 3 episodes this Sunday, starting at 5.
