    It was 90's bad. Like you could watch it back then and not be bothered because almost everything was bad back then. But watching it now would probably be horrible.


No, I watched it back then, and it bothered me.

You could make a list of all the things NOT to do when you're making a tv show, and that pilot episode ticks all the boxes, plus a few boxes you didn't even know existed.

Bad plotting, bad writing, bad dialogue, bad acting, a lead character who's just a watered down cypher of a better character, every cliché under the sun including a kid sidekick, poor direction, plot holes, an eye-rolling, overly melodramatic super-villain in a hockey mask, beefcake shots, cheesecake shots, a plodding score (apart from the Queen stings), an opening title sequence that looked like it was thrown together in an hour by two fourteen year olds on a Sinclair ZX spectrum...

You're right: I can't imagine what it would be like trying to watch it today!
