TV Meme: Day 27 - Best Pilot Episode.

Hmm... it's Day 27... and I have to figure out what I believe is the best pilot episode. This really was tough one. One that could have made it, but didn't, was the (I guess) pilot episode to Battlestar Galactica. I don't mean the 3-hour miniseries that spun-off into the series, but the first episode of the actual series entitled "33." Talk about a hardcore (and amazing) opening to the show. Though I'm not sure if that actually counts considering the miniseries. Anyway, I think I'm gonna go with a cop-out answer... mostly because I don't want to think about it.

Glee's pilot episode was shown months before the show even aired. Its pilot episode was advertised as being online for an entire summer before the show even aired. They were really pimping out this pilot episode... long before the show even aired. So was it worth all the hype? Hell yeah.

This pilot amped up the buzz for the show even more than it already had, and the anticipation level skyrocketed by the time the show actually began airing. And it was a great opening, giving you pretty much everything you should expect from the series (though it did become more realistic and human as the show went on).


  1. Interesting! I completely share your love for GLEE! Nice to see that there's someone out there who is as crazy as me.

    That being said, I don't think I would have put this as the best pilot of all time. That's a hard one. If I had to choose, I would go with the pilot for LOST! That was just a great set up to an extremely trippy series. It did a great job of setting up the atmosphere!

  2. I agree... I don't think this was the best pilot of all time. But like I said, I gave a cop-out answer because I didn't wanna think about it too hard :P .
