Taken: Pilot
February 28, 2017 5:32 AM - Season 1, Episode 1 - Subscribe

Curiosity made me watch the pilot, but it won't bring me back to future episodes. It's fine, I guess, but aside from the 'prequel' conceit it looks to be yet another, ends justify the means rah rah law enforcement anti-terrorism procedural.

I'm a fan of the Taken trilogy, but am fully aware that the only good part of the Taken trilogy is that Liam Neeson gets to run around punching people. (Hello, producers? I will watch literally any movie where Liam Neeson gets to run around and punch people.) Taken without Liam Neeson isn't any kind of Taken I want to know.

Thought this was mediocre. Competently done but nothing particularly noteworthy about it.

So, a "24" competitor?

Liam Neeson with a lightsaber was arguably the best part of The Phantom Menace. This show has no Neeson and no lightsabers, meaning it fails to meet either of my criteria for good television.

Liam Neeson with a lightsaber was easily the best part of Phantom Menace. I believe Qui-Gon was the first Jedi to learn to force ghost himself and I keep hoping hoping hoping we'll get to see a hazy blue Liam Neeson in one of these new Star Wars.
