Our Thoughts on the CBS 2013-14 Pilot Trailers

In case you missed it, Megan, Kyle, & I gave our opinions yesterday on the ABC trailers. You can view that here. Now, we’re here to give you our opinions on the CBS shows, starting with the dramas.
 

Hostages

  • Jenny: I want to like this show so badly because I love Dylan McDermott, and it’s part cop show…but I have a feeling it’s going to be a no-go for me for several reasons. One, the drama aspect (like all the stuff going on with the kids—the pregnant daughter, drug-dealing son or something), and two, I hate watching things with dirty cops. (One of my most hated movies I’ve ever watched is Training Day, with a dirty Denzel Washington.) But I’ll give it a shot because of how much I want to like it. – Curious.
  • Megan: Very rarely do I not like a Jerry Bruckheimer drama, so I’m sure this is quickly going to become a must watch for me. The premise of a political conspiracy where Ellen (Toni Collette) is being coerced to assassinate the President to save her family, who are being held hostage by Duncan Carlisle (Dylan McDermott) is a very intriguing and exciting one. I love that it’s only a 12-episode season so the story line is forced to move quickly and dramatically, similar to shows on cable networks like HBO. – Excited.
  • Kyle: This looks like an exciting series from executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer and starring Toni Collette and Dylan McDermott, who I’ve enjoyed in other dramatic series. I like that it is only a 12-episode series, starting in September and ending in January—which means that it should hopefully be a lot tighter in the writing, won’t drag on, and will give some resolution by the end. – Excited.
