So today I watched the 2006 pilot of Aquaman (a.k.a. Mercy Reef).


Can somebody tell me why the fuck this show wasn’t picked up?

    i think ur thinking with ur loins… did u even notice if they had a storyline…?

  2. Brian says:

    Who needs a storyline when the main character is that chiseled? I think you’re thinking with the wrong head.

  3. Brian, I agree with you, but, Chris, there was in fact a storyline. The exposition was a little clumsy, but it was a pilot, so I really think it had the potential to be a good show.

    And even if it had failed to meet that potential, I’d have watched faithfully anyway.

    I enjoyed it, and Oliver looked good, but, I have to say, his acting couldn’t carry the show.
    Still, though, this show was considered a “go” up until the very last minute before it was pulled from the lineup. Still, considering some of the stuff that did get picked up, this should have been a no-brainer.

    Why do I have to type ‘conceited’ in the box thingy? Couldn’t it be something more appropriate like ‘utterly gorgeous’?

    Aquaman? Does that mean he spent the whole show all dripping wet? If so, I, like you, am puzzled that The Gays didn’t make it an instant success.

    Apparently it was VERY expensive to produce, what with all that water and special effects and, um, chest waxing.

    They apparently liked the ab work of the lead. Isn’t he playing Green Arrow on Smallville this season?

    They renewed “Seventh Heaven” but skipped this? Fools, I tell you.

    I didn’t get picked up because it wasn’t on Logo or Here! TV. We gays can make a show, but only if we’re the most important demographic. Sadly, without the housewives, it wouldn’t survive on a commercial network, and for that you need a plot and acting.

    I too was disappointed that “Mercy Reef” didn’t get picked up. The pilot could have been better, but the foundation was laid for many interesting storylines. Aquaman wasn’t bad on the eyes, either! 🙂
