The Philanthropist

Anybody see this? I saw the pilot today and though it was kinda decent.  It certainly seems ambitious enough - what with the african location photography and everything.  James Purefoy reminds me quite a bit of an English Thomas Jane and was quite good in the role.  There were a couple of things that bugged me though: I know it's early, but the other 2 regular cast members, featuring none other than Neve Campbell, seem somewhat sidelined for the entire thing, and only seem to be there to say "No! You can't do that!" to the lead.  I wonder what the show will do past the pilot as well, when the budget isn't as high.  Still, it fills a hole in my summer watching schedule.  Now I just have to wait for Leverage, Psych, and Monk to come back and I'll be all set.  :)
