Flight Club: The 15 Greatest Television Pilot Episodes
David Simon should be considered as a national treasure just for this pilot episode alone. His incredible sense of timing with the pen allowed The Wire to shine within the grittiest corners of Baltimore. The show's tone was dark enough for HBO fans, yet inquisitive enough to warrant six full seasons. While critics wondered aloud if this show would make it past the first season, David Simon proved that a show set in the hood doesn't have to be full of shootouts and gratuitous sex. Earning the audiences attention with memorable characters (Omar, Avon and Stringer) and smart conversation (McNulty and Bunk), The Wire was full of great talent powered by this amazing pilot episode.
