Seachange (Reboot)–Pilot

The job of a pilot is to establish a show’s premise, characters and story arcs for the season. The Seachange reboot is in the unique position of continuing a premise that was established in its original series over 20 years ago, but also having to establish its premise for new viewers. I felt this pilot really only did half the job.

As both a writer and a fan of the original series, I was eager to see the reboot but also viewed it with a healthy amount of cynicism. I never had the expectation of the reboot to be exactly like the original or pick up where the 2000 finale left off, that would be unrealistic. However I did expect some aspects of the original series to be maintained in the reboot.
