    what television series had the best pilot that just got you hooked immediately?

    to me it came down to 4 shows...Scrubs pilot was great, south park had an hilarious pilot. seinfeld had a good one, and dexter...

    as of right now, Dexter takes the cake for me.

    LOST comes to mind.

    Batman from the 1960's had a good 2-part pilot as well. :up:

    Prison Break.

    Whenever I highly anticipate a show, it's never as good as what I was expecting, but PB's pilot delivered.

    On Leather Wings IS a great pilot, HOWEVER, it wasn't the first episode aired. FOX premiered the show with The Cat and The Claw. So...by the time On Leather Wings aired we had already been introduced to the series.

    Lost had a great pilot

    Futurama

    Dexter, this one propably should take the win since I didn´t expect to like the series but have been hooked on it since.

    New Battlestar Galactica

    Heroes.
