Stalking STALKER: S01E01 - "Pilot"
Stalker -- S01E01 -- "Pilot"
In typical Kevin Williamson fashion, STALKER premiered with a cold opening similar to many of his teen slashers -- a helpless victim is hunted down and the attacker flees the seen, without a trace. Now that's not a knock at all. In fact, no has perfected that as much as Williamson. So kuddos to keeping up the motif.
STALKER stars Dylan McDermott as Jack Larsen and Maggie Q as Beth Davis -- both of whom work for the Threat Assessment Unit of the LAPD.
In "Pilot", Jack is the new agent in town, coming from New York, and he quickly proves that he has what it takes to be apart of the team. Beth is a hard-nosed, tried and true, agent who knows the ropes all too well. But like I said earlier, this first episode revolves around a stalking case that ends up being an open and shut book, but what's interesting is the subplots that are developing already.
Jack semi-stalks his ex wife in what appears to be a non-threatening way, and Beth stalked a stalker to prove a point -- only he flips the script on her in the last thirty seconds of the show.
Needless to say, the show has my attention. I'm very curious to see where this goes from here.
Next episode: S01E02 -- "Whatever Happened to Baby James?"
