WOW! What a start, the pilot is exceptionally good with Mireille Enos and Peter Krause capturing their characters' essence from even before the opening credits. that goes for the rest of the stellar cast as well. Fully formed characters in a pilot is unusual, mostly takes a few eps for actors to settle in. Not here.
Smart, sexy, slick, possible unrequited love, glossy, perfectly groomed from-the-salon-hair, fabulous clothing (for men and women), plus exquisite homes and backdrops all teamed with a season story arc and story of the week done with breathless pacing that leaves you wanting more!!!! All the elements for a great season and everything I want in escapism tv. LOVE THIS SHOW! Put your brain in neutral, get out the popcorn and enjoy!
I think that Shonda Rhimes has another hit on her hands. This is a smart and sexy thriller. The casting is spectacular and the story grabs you right from the start I highly recommend you give this show a try.
