Running Wilde TV Show Pilot FOX-Watch Season Premiere Online S01E01 – Last night was the debut of the new FOX series, “Running Wilde.” The show is one of the most anticipated comedies of the season and it featured a number of actors that have gained fame from previous comedy roles, most notably Will Arnett, who was most famous for his excellent role in the short lived “Arrested Development.” The writers behind the comedy is hoping that will be a sure fired hit, but after watching the pilot we are not sure things will go that well.
Of course, Will Arnett is great in the pilot episode; unfortunately he is not that great. Although his side character in “Arrested Development” may have earned him the reputation as one of the funniest actors on TV, it will be hard for him to live up to the expectations of his new character. This will be his first attempt at being a leading man in a show, and as of right now it is not clear if he has what it takes to pull it off.
Arnett plays Steven Wilde, a man who is rich but has the demeanor of a child. He is the son of an oil tycoon that was pampered as a child and never properly learned how to act like an adult. He has spent more of his life living in a bubble of riches and fame and has never stepped outside of that bubble.
This show will undoubtedly bring him outside of that bubble, but in the process may expose Arnett for the “co-star” that he was destined to be.
Hopefully with time the series will fall in place and produce more hilarious scene and dialogues (to bury the countless flaws) because thus far there is nothing laughable about this show.
