And So It Begins

Promo for Believe, a New Series From Alfonso Cuarón


NBC greenlit this project from Alfonso Cuarón and J.J. Abrams, about a superpowered little girl who might save the world one day if nefarious forces don’t get their hands on her, and her protector two weeks ago. Here’s the first promo, which appears to be leaked, so just in case, watch it quick!

    “Hey, guy. We need a protector for this young girl who may be the future savior of the human race.”

    “I don’t like kids.” :I

    “Yep, you’re definitely the guy we need.”

    Huh? Oh well, still gonna watch.

    I’ll certainly check this out though it could really go either way on the watchableness meter.

    Looks cool so far, I’ll definitely be looking out for it.

    If you would have read press release and/or have been following previous descriptions, you would know that: “The Believers”, who Believe in Bo, feel certain that Tate is man that should protect her (plus he was wrong fully convicted to be on death row). Bo also has abilities in which she can see who people “really are”. -It might be how The Believers know who Tate is and the reason he has been placed in jail is because the group who seeks to destroy or use Bo for destructive purposes knows her connection to Tate will make their goal a lot harder.

    Looking forward to this! For Bad Robot fans missing FRINGE seems like this and Almost Human will make up for our loss! :)

    Not sure exactly what your issue with my statement is. First, I have been following news about this show since its announcement, in no small part because of the impressive supporting cast. I am aware that Tate, in all likelihood, will be proven to have special qualities that make him a suitable (if not perfect) protector – it’s a pretty cliche character trope at this point. I was pointing out how ridiculously formulaic and ostensibly irresponsible it is to choose a protector who, on the surface, would seem to be the last person you would want protecting a child (criminal, hates children). I don’t doubt that over the course of the series he will be proven to be: 1) innocent of the crime he is accused of, and 2) emotionally deep and a natural caretaker.

    The end of your statement (which quotes the dialogue) and then includes your response to it:

    “I don’t like kids.” :I

    “Yep, you’re definitely the guy we need.”

    Huh? Oh well, still gonna watch.

    …sounds like you didn’t understand the possibility of the relationship and/or was mocking the dialogue, as saying “Oh well, still going to watch” implies: ‘I have a problem with this, but I’m going to watch it anyways, despite this problem I have.’

    So therefor I was pointing out that 1. The Press Release helps to make one better understand why it’s set up this way. 2. That the point of presenting something this way is to make you want to ask questions by watching it (which is what most dramas do) 3. If you were mocking it, honestly what’s the point of doing that??

    The fact that Tate is a wrongfully accused criminal (fact, not speculation it’s already stated in press release) to be hired to protect this girl, isn’t weird as it is obviously going to be compelling. It’s not hard to figure out that these two characters need each other and that is what the primary story is…

    I was mocking the trope, as I mentioned before. “Cynical, cantankerous criminal is entrusted with a child, then we learn he’s actually a virtuous, emotionally deep and law-abiding citizen who is perfect for the task at hand.”

    The question many people are going to be asking (most of them not in a mocking way) is “why the hell did they choose a criminal?” And why will they be asking this? Because it’s a gimmicky trope, no matter how well it’s written. The narrative will have to address this, and it’s not a problem to say so. So, yes, despite the overused trope, and the gimmicky premise, I will still be watching because of the cast, JJ Abrams, and because of the mystery.
