Comments Off on 10 Favorite Pilots of the 2010s

Pilots…are tough. Shows have to introduce a world, characters, and, in theory, set up where the show will go in the first season. But when they’re done correctly? Boy, they can be magic.

As the decade comes to a close, we look back at some of our favorite pilots over the past ten years…*

AWAKE (March 1, 2012)

Picture 1 of 10

NBC’s midseason launch in 2012 was one of the most ambitious network swings of the decade—more on SMASH later—and AWAKE was arguably the biggest risk. Though the series ended up being short-lived, AWAKE didn’t play it safe: it followed Michael Britten (Jason Isaacs), a detective who found himself living in two realities after a devastating crash…one where his wife perished, the other where his son did. The pilot deftly handled the overlying grief, while engaging a WTF-is-going-on mystery. The always-great Isaacs was particularly great as the show’s linchpin.

In 2016, Fox aired the charming and delightful drama PITCH—co-created by Dan Fogelman and Rick Singer—about the first female player to make it to the MLB. The ten-episode season followed Ginny Baker (Kylie Bunbury) as she navigated playing at the highest level on the San Diego Padres and dealing with the reality of being a trailblazer.

Unfortunately, Fox opted to not renew the series–which ended on a cliffhanger—and it seemed destined to be a short-lived cult classic. (The series has been off-on legal streaming sites; a DVD set was finally released in 2018.)
