    Default Believe

    Watched the first episode the other night fantastic so far wouldn't expect anything else as produced by J.J Abrams.

    The series follows Bo, a young girl who was born with special abilities that she cannot control, and as they start evolving, the people who are protecting her must turn to an outsider. This leads them to Tate, a wrongfully convicted death-row inmate, whom they break out of prison. Although he is reluctant to take on the role as her protector, the two eventually form a bond that will guide them to helping each other as well as others while staying one step ahead of the evil forces that want the girl.

    My partner and I are quite enjoying the series so far. With J.J. Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón behind it, Believe could have had a lot of potential. For action lovers the series gives very little and for sci-fi lovers, well, there ain't much of that either. In fact there isn't much of anything except dialogue and running away from things. If anyone remembers the series 'Taken' by Spielberg (a sci-fi series where not all that much happens), Believe has a similar feel. The supernatural takes a backseat and the story focuses on the nature of people and their relationships. The episodes are not becoming more interesting with time so the series may well fade into nothingness but the chemistry between Bo and Tate is believable and is the shows saving grace.

    Its sweet and warms the ol' stone heart.

    I mean, it really isn't terrible (see Alcatraz for that) but we watched episode 6 yesterday. Starting to wane a little but we're sticking with it just in case. It has its charms, we had a few who-started-chopping-onions moments in the first few episodes (wimps).

    Can't comment on the series as i have not watched an episode. Not sure if it was mentioned already or not, but the series was cancelled by NBC, among a couple other shows!

    Quite enjoy it tbh. Though I immediately thought of touch when I'd seen the first episode

    I'm fairly shocked it's been cancelled to be honest. I thought it was great.
