CBS Orders Drama Pilots from Chris Columbus, Nicholas Pileggi and Ilene Chaiken

Can this sustain itself? Period pieces have not done well lately. Speaking of The Playboy Club and Pan Am. I love Vegas and I love period pieces so I will give this one a shot.

Vic Mackey just traveled back in time to Vegas, and I am A-Ok with that. I like the cast of Michael Chiklis, Dennis Quaid and Carrie-Ann Moss.

Pilot



I had really high hopes for Vegas. After watching the Pilot, I'm a bit underwhelmed by it. It's not that it was bad, it's just that it didn't give me what I was expecting from it. I wanted something more along the lines of  C a s i n o . Half the episode was basically a procedural show with Sheriff Ralph Lamb (Dennis Quaid) solving crimes and the other half was about the new guy in town to run his  C a s i n o . Only problem is that we don't really get a whole lot of Vincent Savino (Michael Chiklis)....yet. I'm sure that the series will eventually get into the meat and potato's of why people will be tuning into this. But the Pilot itself, even though it was shot exceptionally well, was only above average for me.

Money Play



Much better episode over the Pilot. Not sure why, other than that it swung more over to the Mob ties of running a  c a s i n o , as well as trying to take out an informant that could bring down the whole house of cards. Looks like Sarah Jones has joined the cast of Vegas as Mia. It took me a while to finally place her face. It was her hairdo that kept throwing me off. Looks like she's gonna be butting heads with Vincent Savino which could bring some good conflict to the show.

All That Glitters




Now they are expanding the pool of players to include Mia's father who could become a serious problem for Vincent as he will eventually look to make a power play to eliminate him as  C a s i n o  manager and get his daughter in as the one in charge. Right now, the whole Mob aspect of the show is by far the most interesting and I think it's actually overshadowing the Sherrif Lamb angle of keeping the streets safe and all that jazz. They need to give Dennis Quaid a bigger role or he runs the risk of becoming a character that people don't want to see whenever Chiklis is on camera. Very cool to see Jonathan Banks popping in as one of the Bosses'.

(IL)Legitimate



As much as I like the Mod end of things with regards to the show, I fear, as I said in the previous episode review, Dennis Quaid is becoming a secondary character already. Even Carrie Ann Moss is pretty much non-existent now and she has 3rd billing on the show. If it continues to skew too far into Mob stuff, I wouldn't be shocked at all if Quaid opted out of the series at the end of the season. I'd hate it if that happened, but I wouldn't blame him one bit when the Star doesn't get much to work with here.

As for the episode, it was good. Once again, the Case wasn't all that compelling. But the attempted hit on Vincent Savino tells me something big is coming now that he is looking to take over the Tumbleweed  C a s i n o  and expand without the 'OK' from the bosses back home. Also interesting is the potential romance angle that they are setting up with Deputy Lamb and Mia. That's sure to raise a few eyebrows on both sides of the street.
