RG's Views

I caught the pilot episode and I really liked it. I'm a fan of David Walton. I think he does good work and I always enjoy seeing him. So that was enough to make me tune in. The rest of the cast, including the fabulous Minnie Driver, is... well...fabulous. They pretty much summed up the entire movie in the pilot episode so you can now go on to see what would have happened after the credits rolled. I'm looking forward to more.
