Episode discussion for: 01x01 | Pilot (Sep 16, 2013)

Has anyone noticed how recent scripted shows are wasting no time getting into the action? Long, drawn out character and story development leads to viewers jumping ship. On this show, they have already retrieved the headless horseman's head for crying out loud!

It's a balance, right ?! Take things slowly and people jump ship cos "nothing happened", whiz thru things and people mutter "they could have filled a good 4-5 eps with all that stuff".

Personally I liked the pace and have a strong suspicion that the Horsemen AREN'T the big baddies and there's a whole bunch more meanies just waiting around the corner.

They are aiming for the desired 14-34 audience that has no patience with character development.

To bad all shows aren't written as well as Breaking Bad, but even it started out with a bang.
