Believe is a new sci-fi drama from recent Academy Award winning director Alfonso Cuaron (Gravity). Young girl Bo (Johnny Sequoyah) has supernatural abilities that are beyond her control and she has a team of people protecting her led by Winter (Delroy Lindo). When things start to get more dangerous, they turn to ex-convict Tate (Jake McLaughlin) to help them keep Bo from Roman Skouras (Kyle McLachlan) and his associates including Channing (Jamie Chung). And, of course, there's more to the relationship between Tate and Bo than they first let on.
BOTTOM LINE: Believe just seems like the next in line of the many sci-fi dramas that are maybe too ambitious and maybe too cliche to ever provide a satisfying story in the long run. After watching the pilot, I have no doubt that Believe will be, at best, another Revolution and at worst, a quickly forgotten sci-fi drama.
