TV Pilot Review: THE PLAYBOY CLUB Has Style and Not Much Else

The Playboy Club would not exist had it not been for the success of Mad Men. Although the two shows are completely different from one another, at least as far as I can tell, it’s still obvious that NBC put this into production to cash in on the period drama hot streak their cable brethren have been having. But while this show has style to spare, as well as a good cast that occasionally elevates the material, The Playboy Club falters with an unengaging story that isn’t even fun in a trashy night soap sense.
