Pretty Good
2 August 2002 | by y2jswallsSee all my reviews

I watched this Pilot for the Un-Made series when it originally aired and I liked it then. Luckily I was smart enough to tape it so I watched it recently and I have to say I still think it was pretty good, for being a spin-off of an unforgettable movie starring Elizabeth Shue. It would have been a good television series in my opinion. Would have been better if Elizabeth Shue reprised her role. But oh well. If you like the movie, then you should like the TV Show Pilot.
