Pilot Watch 2013 – NBC

We’ve done the FOX, ABC, & CBS pilots, but now, Megan, Kyle, and I are back to talk about the NBC pilots for the 2013 season. We’ve each rated them as Watch, Maybe, or Skip, so check out what we have to say.

Dracula (Premieres 10/25)

draculasmallJenny: Intriguing, but way too complicated for me. I’m not a fan of period dramas, and maybe I just don’t know my history, but for the life of me, I couldn’t tell when this was supposed to be set. A lot of the acting felt over the top, etc. There’s a reason I don’t watch shows like The Tudors or Game of Thrones, etc. – Skip

Megan: I was expecting to love the whole episode as much as I loved the trailer…but I didn’t. While I still love the idea of the show, I didn’t love the full execution. I found the trailer moving quickly, but the show itself dragged. It’s unfortunate, because I had really high hopes, but now I’m just wondering if it’ll be NBC’s first cancelled show? – Skip

Kyle: I like the 19th century England setting—the production values are really great. The series is like Revenge, if Emily Thorne was a vampire willing to kill to get revenge on corrupt members of the aristocracy and a secret order trying to hunt down vampires. While I wasn’t blown away, I found the series to be an interesting new twist on the classic tale and will check out more. – Maybe

Our Thoughts on the NBC 2013-14 Pilot Trailers

Megan, Kyle, & I have been giving our opinions on the trailers for the new fall shows. You can check out the ones we’ve already posted: ABC & CBS. Now, we’re here to give you our opinions on the NBC shows, starting with the dramas.


  • Jenny: I started to mark this one as Most Likely 1 and Done, but…it’s vampires. My problem with it is the historical aspect of it. I’m not a fan of shows set way back when, so I have a feeling that will override my love of vampires. Therefore, I’m putting this as Curious. It looks like if it’s done right, it’ll be good for those people who don’t mind the historical aspect. We’ll see… – Curious.
  • Megan: I really enjoyed The Tudors—it was incredibly dramatic and full of some intense sexual themes (so not appropriate for NBC LOL)—so a lot of the same cast/crew on this show makes me hopeful. I love supernatural shows, but my only worry is if they will be able to keep the show going for a full season without it getting boring. – Excited.
  • Kyle: I liked The Tudors, and this series finds the same people working with the same actor, so I have some hope. My only fear is how do they keep the story going for a full season? – Curious.
