Star-Crossed - Pilot Screener Preview

Here's my 2 cents after watching the screener for the CW's Star-Crossed pilot:

First Thoughts:
Star-Crossed seems like a good fit for the CW, the human alien romance doesn’t really break any new ground but was more entertaining than I expected (though my expectations were pretty low).

The major theme of the show is how human society treats the aliens very obviously a social commentary on bullying and discrimination against minorities; the aliens aren't particularly alien either with very human appearances.

The human-alien romance is at the center and there is excellent chemistry between the two leads (Aimee Teagarden and Matt Lanter) and while the show will probably resort to the usual love triangles there is no believable chemistry between Aimee Teagarden and the human males and the show would do well to avoid a central love triangle.

The alien characters are generally more intriguing than the human ones who are mostly completely forgettable and unsympathetic besides Malase Jow’s cancer suffering Julia but there are no real standout supporting characters, Matt Lanter gives a good performance as the male lead and his character is likely to be loved by female viewers and should be the focus of the show rather than Aimee Teagarden who does decently but feels somewhat passive for a lead character.

Overall feel:
After the very sci-fi start to the pilot the high school setting takes over giving it more of a teen drama feel, the show is overall much lighter than the Vampire Diaries but would be a good fit to pair with it should Reign fail. It could also pair well with Beauty & the Beast.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
