I caught the preview showing of the pilot a month or two ago. It has potential, and it's certainly an unusual, deconstructionist, older-skewing take on the premise. This might be a good Scooby-Doo
show for people who, like me, are not really big fans of Scooby-Doo
. I'm not crazy about the more angular character models, though. And the idea of Velma being involved with Shaggy just creeps me out somehow. I mean, why would a smart girl like her fall for a guy who'd never love her as much as his dog or a well-stocked kitchen? Not to mention one who's a career coward?
