Believe TV Show Review

Pilot Scoop: Believe

Oscar-winning director Alfonso Cuarón (Gravity) is one of the creators of Believe, NBC's midseason thriller that's executive produced by another familiar name: J.J. Abrams. Premiering Monday night, the series revolves around a convict who is mysteriously sprung from prison to protect a young girl he's never met. Why? She has some pretty spectacular hidden talents. Read on to find out if Believe is worth your time.

  • What it's about: Tate (Jake McLaughlin) is serving time when he's suddenly busted out by Winter (Delroy Lindo), a man he's never met before. Winter explains that he and his team (including Jamie Chung) sprung Tate because it is now his job to protect Bo, a 10-year-old orphan (Johnny Sequoyah) with special powers, including telekinesis, levitation, and the ability to control nature. Why Tate? Watch and find out.
  • Where it works: The dynamic between Tate and Bo is precious. He's a criminal hardened by life, and she's a wise child with abilities beyond the imagination. It would be easy to make their relationship hokey, but it works. It helps that the young Sequoyah is already extremely talented.
  • Where it doesn't: I hope there's more to the powers than meets the eye, because we've seen this kid-with-powers shtick before (like in Looper and The Originals).
  • You might like this show if: You loved Fringe.
  • When it's on: Sundays at 9 p.m. on NBC (the series premiere is Monday, March 10, at 10 p.m.).
