That will always bother me why SciFi hasn't made more of those. That pilot was hilarious.

But my all-time greatest pilot never to see the light of day is Heat Vision And Jack.

Dan Curtis' The Norliss Tapes was originally intended to be a pilot movie for a Kolchak style series. Roy Thinnes is no Darren McGavin (not by a long shot) but it's still a great little 1970s TV chiller, and it would have been nice to have some more of the same.

Darkman had a pilot when they tried to make that into a TV series.
I've seen a bootleg DVD of it on ebay a couple of times, but I never bought it.

Sci Fi channel should buy up the rights to the failed sci-fi and horror pilots (they can't cost much) and revive Joel and the Robots (or just get the RiffTrax boys to do it without the robots).

Lemonaid anyone?

Well I know of 2 films that were originally intended to be pilots for TV series, the films in question being Band Of The Hand and Angel 4:Undercover.

Any chance any of you guys might be able to tell me where I could watch the generation x pilot?

Also, the aquaman pilot was pretty damn cool. I wish that one worked out.
