The pilot for Babylon Fields, the zombie crime drama that was noted on these pages a few days ago, now lives in its full 42 minute glory on Google Video. Watch this while you can. One never knows the vagaries of lawyers who will want to take this down.
Kathy Baker? CBS rejected Kathy Baker?
They are dead to me.
Seriously, this might not have been a terrific series, and it might not have been a ratings-winner, but it’s definitely the most interesting pilot I’ve seen this season, far better than half of the stuff that actually made it to air — in what’s turning out to be a not terribly impressive season. I realize there are lots of reasons why a show might not get picked up, but seriously, this could have been something.
It’s such a pity the series didn’t started: the cast is impressive, the atmosphere perfect. Maybe the audience is not so big as could be for General Hospital but…we really missed something.
