Amazon Debuts Mixed Bag of Original Comedy Pilots 67

itwbennett writes "Amazon sent out a press release over the weekend announcing that the pilots for their original shows 'held 8 spots on the list of 10 most streamed Amazon VOD episodes.' So blogger and entertainment junkie Peter Smith decided to spend a couple of hours seeing if they were worth watching. He managed to sit through 4 of the 8 comedy shows and found a mixed bag — one a clear miss, two meh, and one he'd like to see turned into a series. Have you watched any of the pilots? What did you think?" The quality of these the pilots is not the only way they're a mixed bag: for many Linux users, they're simply not watchable. Watch soon for unknown_lamer's screed on the fat lot of good(will) Amazon is generating by making it harder to legally get these shows.

    So, this guy is trying to be at least semi-pro about this, and we're supposed to care what he thinks and says, but he can't be bothered to watch one episode each of eight different shows before writing an article about it?

    How long are these? I'm guessing an hour. You can't spend eight hours WATCHING TV before writing an article you're being paid for?

    And then it gets put up on Slashdot?

    Has online journalism/tech news fallen so low that this qualifies as worth a front-page mention?

As Will Rogers would have said, "There is no such things as a free variable."
