I agree with all this. I'm not that interested in whether Ben and Addison have chemistry because the fact they're engaged doesn't really mean anything to me.As a fan from way back in 1989, I have high hopes for this iteration of the series. That said, I think this pilot could've been helped by being longer. There was way too much crammed in to one hour.
I think that Ben and Addison were missing chemistry, and I hope that improves.
I enjoyed seeing the project in the present day and I had always hoped in the original series that we'd have gotten more glimpses than we did. Hell, we didn't see anything of the future until the leap back in Season 3 or 4.
I seem to have an Emmental problem. The one from "Dynasty"? That's the only Sammy Jo I remember and I never saw her in an episode. Maybe a clip.I'm a bit sad, I was hopping for Sammy Jo and not one of Al's daughter helping Ben. But Sammy Jo would be 55 in the new series.
