Smart marketing; Show has potential
I am in the process of d/ling the pilot as we speak (having seen it mentioned on gizmodo.com). I have to say this is a smart idea - releasing pilots and the like, for free - and I hope it is the beginning of a trend. As to the show itself, I will post after watching it. However, given some of the actors, I am already predisposed to like it. I think Stephanie March is great (and beautiful) - and I have missed her acting after leaving L&O: SVU. And I look forward to seeing Julianne Nicholson, since I adored her on the short-lived 'Presido Med'. I think Eric Balfour should bring an interesting edge. And I really look forward to J. August Richards tackling a purely dramatic role, after his stint as Gunn on 'Angel'. So not only do we have a smart promotion here, we have a lot of smart actors as well to look forward to. A note to the producers - since this is a new show in search of an audience, I suggest continuing this free release format for a while at least. As I said, it is a really smart idea for a fledgling production. -- UPDATE: a few hours later now. Have watched the show. This is definitely not another L&O format show. It is much more in the footsteps of 'The Practice' and 'NYPD Blue' than Wolf's other shows, with its focus on the professional and personal lives of its characters rather than the more 'Just the Facts, ma'am' Joe Friday general approach of the L&O set of series. And 'Conviction' certainly establishes character dynamics (both inner and external) in this episode. But I was surprisingly less than engaged by the overall stories. I just wasn't drawn in emotionally to most of the people or their situations (though I did like Julianne Nicholson's courtroom scenes). With a title like 'Conviction', one enters with the expectation of such emotional depth. But, generally, it just isn't there yet. Now, given that this is a pilot, where alot of exposition has to be provided, I guess that is one of the pitfalls one faces. That said, I can definitely see potential promise in the series - and because of that, I will tune in (or 'itune' in, if more episodes are offered for free) again to see if the show can begin to fulfill that promise. I just hope the writers are up to fleshing things out more and providing these good actors stories which are comparable to their talents. As a side note - couple smaller things: The music, especially the theme music, is a little too David E. Kelly for this serious drama. It comes across as more humorous/playful than edgy/serious. And they need to improve the intro credits. Way too static.
Ever since I first saw the preview for "Conviction" on NBC, I knew it was going to be a great show. This show looks like it has so much heart. If you like "Law & Order(any version: SVU, CI, Trial By Jury, The Original)" Then I know you will Love "Conviction." Soon to become one of the greatest Law Series of all Time. A Must Download!!
Excellent crime show. The pilot starts out strong and grabs you. I think it's actually better than the other Law & Order versions. I hope NBC goes into production with this show, and keeps the plotlines more focused on the characters than the cases as they did in the pilot.
