JJ Abrams: Believe

The last show in our JJ Abrams series is Believe. It premiered in 2014 on NBC and lasted one season.

Again, I thought this show was Fantastic. I don't know if it failed due to lack of promotion or if, once again, the public wasn't all that fond of strange science (I use science loosely) combined with the idea that our government just might not be the good guys. I said before that both of these ideas were explored in Fringe and Revolution (albeit in different ways). This is the first show that presents both of them up front (as opposed to focusing on one and segueing into the other). Turns out that it didn't make a difference.

I thought the actress who played Bo (Johnny Sequoyah) was outstanding, and I'm sure we'll see her again in something else.

Did you watch Believe? What did you think?


  1. I haven't seen this one. Just too busy. But if it comes out on Netflix I'll watch it.

  2. Loved this show too and was really bummed when it ended. I'm almost afraid to get involved in new shows for fear that they'll be ended without a good resolution.

    I've been watching the last two seasons of The 100 which has been very good though it does look like it's going in a weird direction. That one is supposed to be back on in the fall. I probably should read the book the show is based on.

  3. Arlee, don't bother reading the book. I did. It's SO FAR AWAY from the TV show that it'll be no help at all. The TV show is very loosely based on the book. The TV show is, in reality, much better.

  4. I have to admit, this is one show I have heard nothing about. Like Arlee, I am also afraid of getting into show for fear of them getting cancelled. I think when a series gets picked up, it should get an automatic two seasons. Some shows don't even pick up an audience till the season is over and people start talking about it. That's why so many shows have cliffhangers, to have people talking about it.
