Amazon’s latest pilot season is now available for your viewing pleasure and critic. There are three pilots you can watch for free and optionally give Amazon feedback on to help them decide if the shows should be greenlit for a full season. The first is Jean-Claude Van Johnson, which stars Jean-Claude Van Damme in his first TV role. The martial arts movie icon plays a character not much unlike himself, a global martial arts and film sensation, but the character is also the most dangerous undercover private contractor in the world. Second is I Love Dick, which is a romantic comedy staring Kevin Bacon and Kathryn Hahn. Last is The Tick, which is a rebirth of the short lived 2001 TV series, that involves much of the same talent behind the scenes as the original show. What is different, however, this time around, are the people in front of the camera. Amazon’s version of The Tick stars Peter Serafinowicz and Griffin Newman. If you do watch these pilots, I’d love to hear what you think of them in the comments below.
