Cautiously Optimistic

Watch This Trailer for Alfonso Cuarón’s Believe And Tell Us What You Think [VIDEO]

You wouldn’t know it from this trailer, which proudly trumpets only J.J. Abrams‘s executive producer credit, but NBC’s upcoming Believe was actually co-created by Abrams and Alfonso Cuarón. Around here we’re big fans of both his work and girls with superpowers, so needless to say we’ve been looking forward to this for a while. But the teaser… maybe it’s just that it’s early and I’m pre-breakfast, but it doesn’t grab me like I thought it would. The show looks really generic. White dude with a troubled past rescuing people. Whoopee. But hey, trailers have been misleading before. And Jamie Chung being there pleases my Mulan-loving heart.

What do you think?

Realizing Any Publicity is Good Publicity, NBC Decides to Do This Live Musical Thing Every Year

NBC’s live bradcast of The Sound of Music last weekend was greeted with much the same attitude as Sharknado: a far fetched concept (The Sound of Music without Julie Andrews?), but an ambitious undertaking nonetheless (a live-broadcast stage musical?), likely to be entertaining only in the degree to which it might be a total trainwreck.

And the show delivered, both to folks looking to revel in its technical glitches and lackluster casting (if you didn’t catch it the first time, you can catch an encore this weekend), and to NBC executives who quite enjoyed those 18.6 million viewers who turned their ears and eyeballs to the program. So, of course, they’re planning more.
