A Believe Community
NBC (ended 2014)

Is it possible that NBC purposefully held the debut of Alfonso Cuarón's Believe 'til after the Academy Awards because it figured by then the acclaimed director might be an Oscar winner for Gravity? Maybe! If so, it was a great gamble for NBC, because it's definitely paying off now that the network can market the supernatural drama as "Academy Award-winner Alfonso Cuarón's Believe." And that label is totally appropriate, because Cuarón's eye is all over the series, with his trademark one-take long-shots popping up several times in the pilot.

Like in the first two minutes of the episode, which NBC has now released so it can say, "Hey look! It's Alfonso!" The clip doesn't disappoint! Take a look:

Believe is about Bo, a little girl with special powers, and the man who's been assigned to protect her from evil forces who want to capture her. It debuts in a special time period this Monday, March 10 at 9pm, before settling into its regular time period of Sundays at 9pm starting March 16.  

And okay, that opening scene wasn't entirely one take, so here's a game you can play: Spot the edit points! There are at LEAST two.  


Are you stoked for Believe?

This kinda seems like another "Touch", which I stopped watching because it was way too sappy.

There's a difference between one shot and one take.

I really hope this show succeeds NBC needs another hit. But it is in a highly competitive timeslot (Resurrection, TWD, Cosmos, GoT) so I hope it can do well. I am intrigued by the plot and the first two minutes were intense so I can't wait for this show!

I really like the premise of the show, but it is basically Touch but the girl can talk and has weird powers from origins unknown, I will watch it when it premieres but that is the vibe i got from watching the pilot, maybe the other episodes develop the mystery in an interesting way.

This show somehow reminds me of the 80s movie based on a book by Stephen King - Firestarter !
