A number of critics changed their view about the show and have admitted that the show got better as Season 1 progressed. The review you just shared was done at the end of S1, so the reviewer was kind of redoing her view of the Pilot with hindsight. But if you read her original review, it was quite negative.
This ones not bad either
Whereas the one I shared was done when the Pilot originally aired. Reading between the sarcastic lines, I felt the reviewer actually did seem to enjoy the show as a kind of "guilty pleasure", in the same way that I do. I wish there were more like this sexpocalypse review at the time of the Pilot's airing.
I think the majority of the critics were pretty harsh on the Pilot, which probably hurt the viewership. Ratings for the Pilot were good, very close to Arrow's premiere ratings. But 1x02 saw a big drop in viewers. It's all water under the bridge now, but like I said, I've been feeling kind of nostalgic lately.
