Day 27 - Best pilot episode

I take this to mean a real pilot, not just a first episode. I only know of a few, and of these I love the Due South and Twin Peaks ones. As I didn't see the Due South pilot until I'd watched some of the series, I'm choosing Twin Peaks. It did what a good pilot is supposed to do: it drew me in and had me hooked in no time.

Both of those would be on my best pilot list.

I think I'd chose X-Files though, had just the right mix of quirk, cool and reality.

When The X-Files started here, I was under the impression that it was based on real-life mysterious cases and that intrigued me, but it turned out to be fictional instead. I was so disappointed I stopped watching after one or two episodes.
