Unaired pilot discussion thread

Anyone else seen the unaired pilot? I broke out my (very bad quality) tape last night and had a good old snigger. I'm so glad they got rid of dodgy!Finn and dodgy!Charlie. And I really liked Jake's hair.

My tape quality was so bad that for some reason, it made everyone's teeth and eyes look really horrible. Everyone looked as though they had incredibly bad buck teeth, which was particularly unfortunate for Bella because she smiled a lot. I was rolling around in hysterics during the whole Bella/Scout kissing scene because it looked as though she was gonna eat him alive.

During the scene where Hamilton asks Jake about his/ her parents, she says "Hack into my *dad's* account..."

it would have been very different without Monica Pratt...

They also changed a lot of music. And that ending...cow tipping?

They edited the hacking scene, that's why Jake's name wasn't mentioned at all during the pilot.


^the blue..the red...

^

^Rawley Horror.

unaired pilot Hamilton sounded more like 15. His tone was different too, esp. when he said that he "wasn't a narc or anything..." it's a good thing that they changed that.

I liked unaired pilot! Will's dad. I wonder why they changed that. He only appeared once, anyway.

Jake's hair was pretty. He/ She was pretty. She looked like a girl when Ham saw her for the first time, though. Her cheeks were flushed (remember the Hamilton doll?) while she stared across the hall. Pretty girl, pretty boy.

I the unaired pilot. Jake was really cute with the girly face and floppy hair.
I didn't like Charlie, he was way too young to be Bella's dad (even if he's only stepdad). And also he acted way too arrogant towards Scout if you guys noticed.
The same with Ham's mom. She was probably prettier than the Kate we know, but she was way too young. It looked like she gave birth to Ham when she was 15.
Anyway, there was a lot more chemistry between Kate and Finn in the unaired pilot. The chemistry between K & F in the episodes was nonexistent IMO.

I definitely think everyone's parents were too young. Except for Brian Krudski, he was totally old.

Oh, I loved the bit where Jake dodged the seniors who stripped the freshmen! Would have been a very short stay at Rawley if she'd been caught by them.

I made a Scout/Bella music video with The New Radicals' Someday We'll Know as a hat-tip to the unaired pilot.

The cow tipping was so weird. I'm so glad they cut that out.

And anyone notice that Finn and Kate stopped kissing only after the first student came into the room? God, how obvious!

I never saw the unaired pilot. I only managed to see the hacking scene, but I didn't see anything else. Bummer.

What you saw was the aired pilot. The unaired pilot was shot about a year before that, and half the scenes from it were cut into the aired pilot, while they re-shot some scenes. That's why Jake's hair was sometimes long and sometimes short in the pilot.

The "I'm not a narc or anything" line was in both the unaired and aired scripts, though they had to reshoot it because in the unaired pilot, Will and Scout had a different dorm room set. Will's father was a reshoot, becaue in the unaired pilot someone else played him, and we saw him in Will's dorm room, not out in the truck.

These are all the people I can think of that were different in the unaired pilot and for whom they had to do reshoots:

Finn
Kate Fleming
Brian Krudski
Susan Krudski
Charlie Banks
Grace Banks

I've seen the unaired pilot a long time ago, but if I remember correctly, I liked the ending scene with Scout/Bella/Will and that's when I first heard "Someday We'll Know" which I fell in love with at the time.

My tape is pretty bad too and all the color is distorted, but it's still fun having a "secret" episode of sorts to watch.

Nikki - isn't it a wonderful song? I've been listening to it a lot lately after I heard it on the unaired pilot.

Oh, i understand. I'd love to see it. is there a site where i can download it? It'll be great to put the vid or some caps at my kate bosworth and katherine moennig sites. Thanks!

Also, i've seen the other actress playing grace banks in a promo for young americans. that girl had HUGE lips if i'm not mistaken, lol.

And charlie banks was an actor in the aired pilot and then they changed him for another actor in the rest of the episodes. the aired-unaired pilot actor is the same? or the unaired pilot's actor is the same who played charlie banks in the rest of the episodes.

Do you know what i mean? no? me niether... lol

No, you made sense. There are three different Charlies.

The evolution of Charlie Banks:
unaired pilot!Charlie is blond
aired pilot!Charlie has darkish hair and looks very grave
1x02-1x08!Charlie has dark hair and looks friendlier

I don't think the unaired pilot is up for download anywhere...

I'm curious! I have the unaired pilot on dvd and jeremy sisto (six feet under) plays finn, but does somebody know who is the actress playing Grace Banks? I really want to know who is that girl. When i first saw her i was like "OMG, that girl stole Angelina Jolie's lips!!!".

Any other info about the actors of the unaired pilot is always welcome!
