I'm reserving judgement until I see the first proper episode tonight.

The pilot-y thing was fun, but not perfect. For one thing, while it's just about mandatory for a high school show to deal with peer pressure and conformity issues, it's downright annoying for one of the adult characters to tell you flat out "High school is about conformity" every five minutes or so. And I'm having trouble forgiving them for using that song as the club's big number, although my fingers are crossed that it's a sign Journey is about to finally jump the shark and cross back into the realm of the uncool.

The writing was otherwise sharp and the cast excellent though, so here's hoping.
