The Whispers (Ep. 1.01 - Pilot)

Post by Kris Smith on Wed Jun 03, 2015 6:23 pm

Well, I've seen it and a few of my thoughts:
- I so wanted Claire to pimp slap Jessup. His character annoyed the crap out of me.
- I wonder what Minx did to that kid on the playground.
- I didn't like Claire's son. He seemed more like a vehicle for her to express her feelings than an actual person.
- What was with Claire's laptop? Does it have dial-up from the 90's?
- One thing I really don't like about this so far: This seems like a great set-up for a supernatural threat, but the more I watch the more it looks like aliens. That just doesn't do it for me.

Jessup was so smug, and he managed to be so without saying anything of import. Did he do anything other than second-guess other characters? I just finished the episode & I don't even remember! Way to be, Jessup.

I liked that Claire's son was deaf, but that went the way that it did.

I liked that kids are creepy in this without being possessed by demons. Minx's side braid is terrifying.

I really hope it isn't aliens, too. Supernatural > aliens. Heck, crafty government looking to war with the US that found a way to communicate with kids on frequencies above the typical adult hearing range > aliens.

The whole episode felt very "It's a pilot, so have some boring tropes!"
Lead Agent with a dark past? Check.
Bored stay at home moms? Check.
Cheaters, cheaters everywhere? Check.
Someone's unhappy with a divorce? Check.
Inspirational speech given by the protag that somehow gets through to an unresponsive witness despite the fact that the witness is being cared for by professionals who should've had a much better shot at doing so? Check.

Here's hoping the second ep steps it up a bit, or that Lily Rabe continues to be a magnificent beacon of light and Acting.
