The Goodwin Games 5/20/2013 "Pilot"

Not bad for a pilot. I thought it was quite funny in parts. We will see how long it lasts and if the quality stays pretty OK.

I believe it will last for the 6 episodes they have filmed. Most of the cast are already part of new shows though, so it's not going to last.

I hope it is a coherent and complete story arc. Weird of Fox to decide to burn off the whole show at the start of summer.

It was mildly amusing. It got atrocious ratings but I am not sure if anything else could be expected given how they handled it. I doubt it will be back unless things dramatically improve.

From Alan Sepinwall...

"The Goodwin Games" debuts tonight at 8:30 Eastern, and the week after Upfront Week is a reminder of how silly the whole process is. FOX ordered this show a year ago, planned to rotate it in with its Tuesday comedies at midseason, then gave up on it when "Ben and Kate" failed out of the gate and the entire night imploded. Seven episodes were shot, then shelved, and that was it. Scott Foley went on to do an arc on "Scandal," Beau Bridges did a CBS pilot ("The Millers") that got picked up, etc. Everyone has moved on. It's as pure a case of Summer Burn-Off Theatre as you can find.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Consider changing the thread title to Series Thread instead of Pilot. It's the only way that makes sense.

Too bad.

I thought that the pilot showed a lot of potential but since it's seven and gone, it's not a huge investment to watch the whole thing.

I said something similar in the daily ratings thread.. I thought it was a VERY solid "second tier" sitcom. I knew it was a burnoff due to when it premiered..

sigh...I really liked this show and enjoyed it a lot. I came here looking for any news that it might be saved...I guess not

It's funny, the cast is excellent all around...why in the world would they not give it a shot?

Saved? It was DOA. One of the leads already signed with another show.

I'll never understand network TV. I thought this was a cute show, and with the right support, coulda been a contender.

*sigh*

my defense is that I don't follow these things...so I had no idea about that signing...heck, I still don't know who you're talking about or where he/she signed!

Yes. Perfectly understandable if it weren't mentioned more than once in this very thread.

I started watching this show because Becki Newton is hot. I stuck around because it's oddly charming.

Yeah, I even wrote a review on imdb, since most of the others were very negative. While not great, I think it's better than other new sitcoms from this TV season.
