Review - The Defenders Season 1 Episode 1 Pilot

The Defenders falls in the same area as most pilots this season, decent entertainment for those who have a bit of extra time, but not particularly innovative Among network pilots, Lone Star and, to a degree, The Event, are the only shows which break the mold. Jim Belushi and Jerry O'Connell have great chemistry and keep the show moving along with their charm and roguish attitude. The legal part of the show isn't totally forgotten and we do get an acquittal. But nothing is groundbreaking or that interesting.

Today is Thursday and three new shows are premiering tonight and one is premiering tommorrow. In the last week, I've watched the new pilots, and it's been a mostly boring affair, having to watch new shows back to back that are neither good nor bad. The Defenders stays in the pack, and may be worth giving another shot as long as you're night is empty.

Score: 7.9/10
