Review of ABC's Eastwick

Pilot Watch: Eastwick

The networks have announced their Fall schedules, but which series will actually be worth watching? Throughout the Summer, as I watch the pilots, I'll be posting my first impressions. Note that a lot can change before a show actually makes it to air, so these aren't reviews, just quick thoughts on how the shows look now. Today's pick: ABC's drama Eastwick.

What's it about? The lives of three women are changed forever when they are brought together by a handsome devil (literally) who helps them harness their powers as witches. With magic, they learn to stand up for themselves, turn personal desires into reality, and raise a little hell.

Who's in it? Rebecca Romijn, Lindsay Price, Jaime Ray Newman, Paul Gross.

The good: Now that Lipstick Jungle is resting in peace, it's nice to see a fresh new trio of women to cheer for (or, well, fresh duo and Price, who moves over from Lipstick). It's a fun, wish-fulfillment type of show, and who hasn't thought about how cool it would be to have magic powers?

The bad: Translating a movie to a TV series can be difficult, and it seems like Eastwick doesn't know what kind of show it wants to be. The pilot was funny and campy, but it also took on some pretty heavy themes. It plows through a lot of story lines in the first episode, making me wonder if it's going to burn out before it even gets started.

Will I watch? It's debatable. I'll probably check out the first few episodes, but I'm not ready for a season-long commitment just yet.

Yep sounds like "Charmed meets the Witches of Eastwick". Always willing to give that kind of stuff a try, but it looks like it could be very boring!

This show brought back memories of Charmed. I'll tune in to see...

Anybody else notice some strange things in this picture? Both Rebecca Romijn's and the woman with the red hair's legs are funny! Like they don't match up or something.

I want to watch it, but I have a feeling it is going to canceled. I hate when I get emotionally attached to a show and it gets canceled. I love Rebecca and Lindsey too. I think Rebecca should do more movies, I have loved her in everything I have seen her in movie-wise, but her tv shows often don't do well.

I've loved Paul Gross since Due South, but this show looks horrible

Love the women, but I'm not sure I'll commit to watching beyond the first few episodes.

I can't get behind the main dude. I don't think he's cute. Should have been the Irish hottie from Lipstick Jungle ;) But I LOVE these women!
