Ooof, I didn't realize how squicky of a concept this was until I was watching it. They have a tough line to walk with not underplaying the seriousness/illegality/grossness of what the dad did and not getting bogged down in all that. I thought the pilot did a decent job in trying to manage the two very opposing sides (criminal sexual assault vs sisters, yay!) while also having to establish everything a normal pilot does. It was overstuffed and characters were a bit over the top, but that's par for the course with pilots. I liked it enough to check it out so I'll give it 3 episodes to hook me for real or not.
Totally agree with this, but somehow I found myself weirdly liking the former child star character. Something about her bringing Brittany Snow a coffee and trying to add her on Facebook and stuff was so awkward it came back around to endearing. It looks like she had a pretty solitary childhood and all that awkwardness of trying to make a friend and being so bad at it, even without the awkwardness of being newly discovered half-siblings. I think she's got potential to be a really good, interesting character. (I mean, she also has the possibility to be the worst, most annoying character but I'm choosing to be glass half full!)
