I didn’t see a thread for this show so i created one. The first episode is on tonight.
So….Cuaron directed the Pilot? Hum.
Good first episode. Chemistry between the two leads is electric and that’ll keep the interest up. Cuaron’s directing was good, but I don’t think he’s gonna get an Emmy nomination unless it’s purely name-checking or the show is a huge hit. The big reveal at the end of the episode might strike some people as being “too early” in the series, but I think there is enough mystery heading forward to drive a story. I think this kind of reminds me of “Heroes” and if this show can hit the right notes as that show did in its first season, it should be really good. I wonder how heavy an influence Cuaron has going forward. Overall, I enjoyed it but I preferred last night’s premiere of “Resurrection” on ABC (which doesn’t have a thread on here yet!) but I’m excited for both shows.
I liked Jake McLaughlin.
This definitely wasn’t up to Cuaron’s usual standard like we saw in Children of Men and Gravity. I’ll give it a few episodes, but I’m not hopeful.
