30 Days of Telly #27

Day twenty-seven, the best pilot episode. I'm really tempted to go with Nip/Tuck, because not only is it a really great episode, but it also has note-perfect character introductions coupled with man-eating crocogators. And if you're going to have a pilot episode of anything, man-eating crocogators is a damned good thing to include in it. But I think I might be leaning towards The West Wing. It really is a masterclass in first episodes. I love how all of the characters and their workplace are introduced. I love how it all hits you like a series of smacks in the head (in a good way), with all these people zipping past at high speed, having whirlwind conversations, and saving the world, and being politicians that you actually want to have running things (which is quite a feat in itself). Why must you always be making me choose, meme? You're cruel.

Hmm. I choose The West Wing. As much as anything else, I no longer have a Nip/Tuck icon, so Josh rather wins by default. And by having Leo and Donna and Sam and CJ and Toby, and also just by being Josh. He doesn't have any man-eating crocogators, though. He does have the President falling off a bicycle, but with the best will in the world, that really isn't the same.

A crocodile crossed with an alligator???

No, it was just your basic alligator. I like the word 'crocogator' is all! I think I caught that one from Fingermouse...
