And full of mysteries, Emergence makes a very personal pilot, but intense in the right measure. Putting characters in a race against time, the series shows what it came to, but it still needs to work its characters better and explore more science fiction than drama.
SPOILER ALERT: This article contains information about the main events of the episode. Continue reading at your own risk.
Right from the start we have an accident, a plane, or at least they say it is, falls and police officer Jo Evans (Allison Tolman) ends up going to the place and finding the quiet, but passionate, Piper, who without memory, changes the dynamics of your family.
Piper still shows that he has the power to turn things off, and this attracts agents without records to “get” the girl back and take her, it is unknown where. The cool thing is that Jo does her best to make the girl comfortable and little by little we are seeing the union between Piper and Jo’s family, which still has her daughter Mia and her father Ed, as well as ex-husband Alex.
The series still shows other characters, like reporter Benny, or policeman Chris, but we still don’t understand where the risk of the people behind Piper comes from, which doesn’t generate so much friction, just making us imagine the risks for which the girl can run.
In the end we still see the girl remember a device behind her ear and she pull it out with a stylus.
Emergence still needs to fixate, but it demonstrates making an interesting science fiction and the cast promises to please a lot. We have in addition to Tolman the actors Alexa Swinton, Owain Yeoman, Ashley Aufderheide, Robert Bailey Jr., Zabryna Guevara, Donald Faison and Clancy Brown.
The series is by creators Michele Fazekas and Tara Butters, names behind Resurection, Reaper, Marvel – Agent Carter and Dollhouse.
