Incoherent philosophical ramblings combined with broken English. Stilted dialogue.
 

Progeny of Evolution , Pilot Script 1 - The Girl in the Library

3 stars
Wrong format, over-written description, talky. Main characters are supposed to be from different worlds but sound the same. Script objectifies female character and doesn't make her interesting.

FOUR TWENTY, Pilot Script 2 - A death in the Greene House - dope of the dead edition! - Feature length pilot.

1 stars
Only read a couple of pages. Wrong format, multiple writing mistakes starting on page 1. Way too long.

Only read the first few pages and then gave up. Woefully inept writing, showing a lack of understanding of grammar, punctuation, and word usage. Clunky, repetitive, on-the-nose descriptions and dialogue. No sense of place/time -- kids didn't wear pajamas in the old west. Ridiculous situation -- the Texas Rangers didn't show up on people's doorsteps just in time to prevent them from spanking their kids (I assume this isn't intended as a comedy).

Just read the first 2 pages. The broken English and laughable/wooden dialogue made me give up at that point. Doesn't read like it was written by an adult.
 

The Educators, Pilot Script 1 - Edumacation

1 stars
Stilted dialogue, flat characters, not a single laugh or even a smile. Dull, dull, dull. No point having your friends pimp it if you haven't got the goods.
