Yet Another Reverie Promo Video: Sneak Peek

trailer_003NBC are really churning out these promo videos.

Today we have an extended video that they’ve called a ‘sneak peek’ of the new drama series Reverie.

It is over 2 minutes long, as opposed to the 30 seconds of the previous two.  We get little more of the set up, an extended voice over by Dennis Haysbert, and Jessica Lu and Sendhil Ramamurthy featuring in extra scenes. They are giving a great sense of the plot.

And yet, and it pains me to say it, still no sign of Kathryn. Arrrgggh!

This latest video joins the others in the KM UK the Gallery.

Another Reverie Promo Video

trailer_003Another day, another NBC promo video for the upcoming TV show Reverie.

This makes number three, or two if you go by the more official count.

Again, this is 30 seconds of footage from the programme.  Some bits are the same as number 2 (aka 1) but there is new stuff as well.  A small copy is in the Gallery.

Still no sign of our Kathryn though :-(

Roll on the May 30th.

Reverie Promo Video

poster_004With just over a month to go until the première of the sci-fi-ish drama Reverie it seems that the NBC network have started the process of promoting the show.  In a small way at least.

Over night (UK time) a short trailer was broadcast.  KM UK has managed to obtain a copy of the 30 second video.  You can find it in the gallery.

trailer_002Although some elements are, not surprisingly, the same as the trailer first seen 11 months ago (yes, it is that long!) this new promo is largely made up of new clips.

Sadly it does not contain even the slightest glimpse of Kathryn.  They are clearly keeping the best stuff to themselves for now :-)

Reverie, starring Person Of Interest‘s Sarah Shahi as a former hostage negotiator tasked with talking people in to leaving a fully immersive VR simulator, is due to début on the 30th of May in America.

Reverie Actual Première Date!

poster_003Finally!  A première!

The show based around virtual reality gets an actual release date!

NBC have put all the delays and speculation to an end and announced the date and time the first episode of the sci-fi-ish drama series Reverie will be shown.  They made a graphic and everything (see above)!

Make a note in your diaries of Wednesday, the 30th of May, at 10pm on the NBC network.

WonderCon Reverie Round-ups

artwork_002Just over a week ago now (Friday, 23rd March) attendees of the WonderCon event in Anaheim, California, were given the opportunity to watch a special screening of the first/pilot episode of Reverie.

Since then there have been several articles posted online by bloggers and journalists that were there.  I thought it worth taking a little time to highlight a couple of them with slightly different takes on things.

Warning:  These articles do include descriptions of plot elements which could be considered spoilers by those wanting to go into show fresh when it finally airs.

First up is a piece by Derek Vigeant at the TVweb site.  Derek is enthusiastic about what he saw.  He singles out lead Sarah Shahi in particular for praise:

Shahi is absolutely fantastic as the lead and it continues to baffle me that this woman hasn’t been the lead on more shows. She demonstrates the intelligence and determination of someone that could quickly acclimate to being inside the Reverie.

Dennis Haysbert, Sendhil Ramamurthy, and Jessica Lu are noted as not playing major parts in this episode but sees hints as to their future developments.  Kathryn is not named in the article but mention of “big brother sticking their nose in things” is almost certainly a nod towards her DoD official’s involvement.  Derek has concerns about the weekly procedural aspect getting “stuck in a rut” but that things like the DoD should help prevent that.

The overall fairly positive TVweb piece ends on a hopeful note:

As long as Reverie continues to grow and develop like the [VR] program itself they should have plenty to offer as this series debuts this summer on NBC.

You can read Derek Vigeant’s piece in full on the TVweb site HERE.

Over at the 4 Your Excitement site, Stephanie Coats has a slightly less upbeat take on the show.  It kicks off with the title ‘Doesn’t Live Up To Its Dreams’ and continues in the first paragraph:

Picture Inception but less gritty and less stylized, sprinkle in some of the elements of Black Mirror’s “San Junipero”, and add more commentary on cell phone addiction, then you’ll have a fairly good idea what Reverie is like.

Stephanie’s piece is more of a description of the story elements than a detailed critique and continues in the final summing up:

As it stands after episode one, there is little that is new, clever, or intriguing to get you hooked. Almost every idea feels lifted from another show or movie. Reverie is lighter, both in tone and look, than its sources of inspiration.

Stephanie Coats’ article can be read HERE on the 4YE site.

Thank you to both Derek and Stephanie for writing up their thoughts on Reverie.  We look forward to forming our own opinions later this year.
