So after much promotion, Sisters finally premiered last night.

The job of a pilot is to establish a show’s premise and characters and set up story arcs for the season. This pilot managed to accomplish this beautifully. What I didn’t expect was the chapter-like introduction to the three sisters: Julia (Maria Angelico), Roxy (Lucy Durack) and Edie (Antonia Prebble). It was something that I had never seen before and it was well executed, as while rarely used writing techniques can provide a breath of fresh air to a TV show, if they drag on, especially a technique like this, it can bore and confuse the viewer. While the pilot does go back-and-forth between the three of them, it doesn’t go out of its way to knock the viewer on the head with the chapter technique.
