After watching the original, it seemed very dark, the acting was excellent but glad the material was worked on. 

The actor Sheldon and Lenord have great chemistry. 

But Katie would not have been a good occuring character. Maybe a guest star. It seemed like she was an expriment.

The character Penny was definitley a great addition. 

Also the writers are talented and good writers but surely they should of known a female antonganist would probably not being well recieved.

I also didn't like Katie. 

Did you feel like the other female character Gilda seemed like a mix of traits that Amy and Raj's girlfriend Lucy had?

To be truthful,  I don't even remember Gilda. All  I can remember from that episode is I didn't like Katie either.

She was a female scientist that worked with this pilot's version of Leonard and Sheldon. She had mannerisms that reminded me of both Amy and Lucy.

So, like the Gilda in a couple of fanfiction stories that I have read.

Yes she is mentioned in 123JustAFriend's The Meant To Be Determination and also in a couple of stories by WeBuiltThePyramids. Perhaps Leslie Winkle was meant to be a replacement for her in the actual show. But her personality reminded me more of Amy and/or Lucy.

I cannot find the similarities with Lucy. Which traits did you find similar? 

But Amy and Leslie very much so. 

I think that Gilda would have been a pointless audition after the shows female charcater. But nevethless she was a good character.

Leslie Winkle was obviously  modeled on Gilda and Chuck probably saw it as a way to get the character into the actual show.    After the original pilot was rejected, the actress playing Gilda (Iris Bahr) moved to Israel for a couple of years before returning to the US to continue her acting career.   So using 

Several bits and pieces from the original pilot made it into the regular show.  Besides parts of Gilda, Leonard coming out with the lightsaber after hearing a noise, when Sheldon went over to Penny's at night, in The Big Bran Hypothesis is one.  It's almost an exact copy of him coming out upon hearing a noise in the unaired pilot.

I thought there was something familiar with that scene.

Something about the way she talked reminded me of Lucy. I'm sorry I can't describe it better than that.

Very interesting. I never thought of that. You could be right.
