Pilot? Pretty intense; maybe a bit overblown as pilots can be, but promising. I have always been a huge James Spader fan, but could not watch him in dreck like Boston Public. Here, he pretty much resurrects an older version of his character from Two Days In The Valley, which because of his performance ranks right up there in my top ten. Less Than Zero is I guess when I knew he was really a terrific actor and not just a Brat Pack flash in the pan. That said, without JS this show has promise. With him, even more. Your thoughts, please.
