CW: Vampire Diaries, just to see how bad it is.

Fox: Zipola. I'm shocked, there's usually something promising-sounding coming from Fox.

CBS: Zipola. This network hates me.

NBC: Day One.

ABC: Eastwick (Jamie Ray Newmann just cast), Flash Forward, Happy Town, V, No Heroics.

Nice job, ABC! The rest of you suck more than ever!
No Heroics is a low budget show on a digital channel here in the UK... I'm not sure how well it'll translate. I know it kept me watching for no apparent reason.
Here are some clips on YouTube

Uh, no. Just no.

There are a bunch that look interesting to me, but I can't get attached until they actually get ordered to series.

I'm really intrigued by I, Claudia, though. For one, I love the books/mini-series I, Claudius (and Claudius the God). Two, I think it sounds cool in the Jack & Bobby kind of way. And I loved Jack & Bobby. So I'm excited about that one--I really hope it gets picked up!

The one about the guy and the kid solving crimes sounds like it could be a fun take on the forensic show genre. I'll be checking that one out, too!

A comedy about superheroes doesn't really require translation, it practically writes itself. It's not like it's an original idea to start with.

I keep wondering why networks bother to "buy" ideas they could very easily come up with themselves after ten seconds of thought. Are they really so imagination-deprived? After re-reading that sad list of pilots (cop shows/lawyer shows/doctor shows/slacker sitcoms) maybe they really are?

And they can't do it low budget if they want it to have a hope in hell of success.

They should air No Heroics opposite of Heroes.

A couple of the ABC pilots look promising, but I don't see a lot of keepers in this pond.

I hope they do, Heroes needs all the help it can get! No Heroics sounds like one of those DOA concepts that make you scratch your head and wonder how it got past the idea stage. Or something that might be better off on basic cable, where a tiny cult following is an acceptable viewership level.

I thought you were interested in No Heroics? Or did that clip kill your interest?

Hmm... crime drama, medical drama. A medical crime drama... Or remakes of No Heroics (which I never found that funny to begin with) and Ab Fab.

I've got to admit I'm a little disappointed with that. Though Day One sounds vaguely interesting.

Eva Adams: Sexist sports agent wakes up and discovers that he’s now a woman
Some hard hitting drama there. I'm ashamed to admit, I'd give that a watch just to see if it's any good

Re: TV pilot season begins...

What's happened to Virtuality? Wasn't that supposed to be on Fox?

If it's no longer a pilot, has it been picked up for series, or is it just DOA?

I haven't heard much about it recently, but I just assumed it was still in development/pre-production. I've not seen a target date for a pilot yet.

Because it way, way violates our PG-13 rules. Just be glad I caught it before Bonz came across it.

No Heroics sounds like it could be pretty darn funny, but pretty niche as well. Who knows, though--maybe not!

Lost & Found sounds good to me mostly because of Katee Sackoff. I really like her, and think it will be cool to see her in the lead.

Day One sounds like Jerico 2.0, and while the concept intrigues me in theory, I was never drawn to Jerico, so I guess I'll see if it's something I want to check out (if it gets picked up).
