Spoilers: I Want To Believe
Posted Aug 5, 2007 @ 7:31 AM
Isabelle Carreau at TVSquad.com has read the pilot script, and spoils it somewhat, here. The spoilers are the sort that give a better look at the premise, and Duchovny's character. They won't spoil the pants off of you.
Actually, you don't need no stinkin' spoilers........

The dream/hallucination scene in the church felt extremely forced and seemed like something out of Saving Grace (where those scenes feel equally forced).
On a side note it was nice to see Evan Handler again after his brief stint on S60.

That being said, I think Hank's antics are so over the top that he won't be able to circle the drain much longer and we'll be seeing some character development. I hope so anyway, because I have a soft spot for cheeky, self-destructive charmers and he could be a fun one.
So far I like it enough to forgive some pilot episode overkill and give it a chance. And the fact that it's on after Weeds and I'm that lazy doesn't hurt either.

That will not prevent him (Hank), however, from having sex with a bookstore pickup — played by an all-grown-up Madeline Zima, the youngest daughter in The Nanny.
Ewwwwww! I grossed out to think in "real life" of the sweet little child from The Nanny sitting nude astride Mulder. (She's 21 and he's 47.) I know this happens, but, ewwwww.
Granted, pay cable exists to give a paying audience what it wants. Still, exposing the breasts of four women in one half-hour does seem to go beyond freedom to exploitation.
I agree, it did seem to have excessive boobage. I know it's cable, so I'm not offended in the sense that I am fairly warned if I am watching ShowTime, I just want the show to be more about a good storyline than nudity.
That said, I enjoyed it and look forward to the series. So glad to see Duchovny's talents put to good use.

Now if DD spends most of the second episode naked and posing seductively, all will be forgiven.

I couldn't agree more, and this seems to be the main problem a lot of people have with the show, that it simply has nudity just because it can.
Sepinwall also gave it a loathing review, again highlighting the age difference between Duchovney and both Zima and the actress that plays his former girlfriend (she's at least a decade younger than him).

Love Duchovny, but I think I'll pass on this one.

The more I watch, the more I get the feeling that the entertainment business and its effect on LA culture is being mocked. That would explain the rampant misogynistic comments, the raunchy situations and general moral laxity.

Episode 1.12 - The Wedding. I looks as though Bill and Exy do get married. On the way to the wedding, Becca gets her first period (robots bleed?) and Hank gets into a fight at the store over some tampons with a woman (um, can't you just go to another store?).
