The Goodwin Games - Pilot Review

FOX's midseason comedy The Goodwin Games revolves around three siblings—Henry (Scott Foley), Chloe (Becki Newton) and Jimmy (played by Jake Lacy in the Pilot but will now be played by T.J. Miller). After their father passes away, he has left them a $23 million inheritance. Through several VCR tapes left behind for his three children, they are to follow their father's instructions to compete for the money.

The Pilot Episode was more enjoyable than I expected it to be. Becki Newton and Scott Foley both had great comedic timing, and the chemistry between the two was delightful to watch as well. The one weak spot was the youngest brother, Jimmy. An ex-con guitarist who is released from prison in the first episode, Jimmy was the weakest character in the cast. He was neither funny nor was his story with his daughter compelling.

While predictable at certain parts, this was one of the better comedy entries this season. FOX also managed to slip in a American Idol alum's song, Phillip Phillips' debut single "Home" at the end as well. All in all, The Goodwin Games is a fun and funny look at the lives of three adult siblings that falls somewhere in between a family comedy and the older skewing sitcoms like New Girl and Happy Endings.

Coming to FOX in 2013. **Please note that this is only a preview of the early version of the pilot**

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
