In “The Pilot” episode of “First Dates,” meet Samantha. She’s a political consultant with a sharp tongue, and the IQ to match it. She and her friends know how to have a good time, and they don’t shy away from sharing their opinions. Her best friend, Elaine, doesn’t shy away from anything, including lewd sex talk at the dinner table. Meanwhile, Jamie, Samantha’s sister, isn’t shy about letting her sibling know about all of the mistakes she’s made in life.
Before the episode is over, Samantha gets some unsettling news as she prepares to celebrate Valentine’s Day. That news leads to her meeting some very interesting male figures, a pattern that appears is going to be a reoccuring issue for Samantha as she enters a world that wasn’t even invented the last time she went on a date.
