Copper Season 1, Episode 1: Surviving Death

Published August 20, 2012 by tiradical20s


First impression:

It’s a crossover between Sherlock Holmes and The Gangs of New York with just a touch of the black plague.  Also, the Irish Zach Galifianakis look-a-like was very distracting.


Last impression:

I wasn’t exactly thrown by the pilot, I actually had to go back and look up what the overall plot of the series was going to be because by the end I wasn’t sure where it was going to go to keep our attention.  I always enjoy seeing a setting in another era, so that in itself will keep me interested enough for another episode.  I would like to learn more about some of the central characters and a little more backstory on Corcoran’s family that he lost would be beneficial.  Overall, I give the pilot a 2.5/5.
