None of the lead characters share strong chemistry, although with further episodes this might improve. I'm also excited because this episode was quite good and it was only the pilot. As far as character development I don't know whether some of the reviewers here have been living in a cave but television shows today employ a story arc across several shows to flesh out the characters.
