Stalker - Pilot - Advance Preview

I don’t usually keep up with all the pilot news until the networks actually announce what they are picking up. However, on one occasion, I did glance at some of them and Stalker was the only one that caught my eye. I expected quite a bit from the pilot, and it certainly delivered.

The show does what it says on the tin. It’s about stalkers. Maggie Q plays Lieutenant Beth Davis, who is in charge of a very small unit called TAU (Threat Assessment Unit). Dylan McDermott plays Jack Larsson, a cop from New York who decided to move to Los Angeles and join the unit. The only other character of note is Perry (who has recently been made a recurring character), but I’ll come onto him later.

Maggie Q is a little stale, though I think for the character plot, it works well. There is one scene towards the end that I really enjoyed that really refined her character, though there is some good development throughout. There’s definitely a lot to explore about Beth’s character, particularly why she joined the unit and what happened in her past.

McDermott however, shines way above his co-star. He plays the character fantastically, and Jack’s development is far better than that of Beth. There’s a lot of ambiguity to both characters, but Jack’s is far more interesting to watch than Beth’s.

Erik Stocklin plays Perry, a sophomore in college who isn’t exactly on the best of terms with his roommate. To say much more would be a spoiler, but what I will say is that his story is engaging and I am definitely looking forward to seeing it develop more.

There were so many things going on in this episode – don’t look away for even one second (I made this mistake and ended up having to rewind). I enjoyed every minute of the pilot, and I can’t wait to see more. Want to see a promo? Look below, and make sure to check out Stalker, Wednesday October 1st at 10pm on CBS.

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.
