It's on the first disc of season five. What a contrast it is to watch the screen test right after watching Lunar Eclipse. It's almost like watching two different sets of David and Maddie! Also, watching it after LE took the sting away from that finale which is a whole other topic. Anyway, Cybill and Bruce have a true full-blown chemical reaction on that initial film! I listened to the commentary and realize I had it wrong. It wasn't Glenn Caron who didn't think a character like Madolyn Hayes would ever get romantically involved with a character like David Addison but some ABC bigwigs. Glenn said they told them not to put the two together romantically but that they went ahead and did it anyway in the Pilot. Lucky for us! It's an awesome screen test and the commentary with Glenn and Jay Daniels is interesting too.
I recently came across this screen test on YouTube and whoa! You can indeed see that chemical reaction happening between Cybill and Bruce. There's this moment when she steps forward and sends him this almost seductive little smile... that was instant attraction right there! It was hot!
