pilot wasn't merely rough "around the edges" - it was rough in its entirety. I had long ago accepted that the show was going to recast the movie's characters, but I didn't think any of these actors were convincing in those roles, and I didn't think the writing captured the characters either. As Mister Fandango
said, I didn't see any resemblance between the movie version and the tv pilot version of the characters. I wasn't so much as mildly amused at any point watching it. If this was truly the creative team's "best," I don't want to try imagining what a continued series would have been like.
