    Nobody's watching this show yet?

    'Pilot' Episode Grade: A

    There’s a moment in almost every David Milch show where the plotting and character development and nuts and bolts of making a TV show simply float away and an immense feeling of the interconnectedness of the world Milch and his colleagues have built washes over you. It’s usually a moment that transcends, a moment of startling beauty that looks past the mundane and physical to something less tangible and more spiritual. Milch is as good as any cinematic artist at creating the feeling of something more than what we’re actually watching, the sense that when we start peeling back the layers, we’ll learn that everything is part of the same system, the same living being that we can’t perceive because we’re too limited in our scope. Milch, writer on Hill Street Blues, creator of NYPD Blue and Deadwood, excels in the moments when the words fade out and the world is reduced to a bunch of people who all have the same loves and the same drives and find themselves united in a kind of grace.
