"The Inside" Starts on Fox Wed June 8th

From the futoncritic.com:
THE INSIDE
http://www.fox.com/theinside/
(Wednesdays at 9:00/8:00c on FOX; premieres June 8 at 9:00/8:00c)

How FOX describes it: "Your next exciting destination is THE INSIDE. In this new psychological thriller premiering Wednesday, June 8 (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), rookie FBI Agent REBECCA LOCKE (Rachel Nichols) joins the Bureau's Los Angeles Violent Crimes Unit – unaware that she's been hand-picked for the dangerous job by its imposing leader, Supervisory Special Agent VIRGIL "WEB" WEBSTER (Peter Coyote). Web is among the few who know that Rebecca was once abducted and held captive, a traumatic experience that affords her unique insight into the mindset of villain and victim alike. From the producers of FOX's pulse-pounding hit drama 24, the series follows Rebecca and her fellow agents as they move from one challenging, complex case to the next, making personal sacrifices along the way. Who these agents really are, why Web has hired each of them, and the true story of Rebecca's abduction are mysteries that can only be solved on THE INSIDE."

I'm really pumped to see this show. I've like Tim Minnear since he's been on Buffy and this looks like it should make up for Wonderfalls being canceled before its time.

I love the ads for this thing: "From the producers of 24 and the network that brought you American Idol, in association with the studio that distributed Star Wars ..."

Yeah, I'll watch.

With Tim Minear (Angel, Firefly, Wonderfalls), Jane Espenson (Buffy, Angel, Firefly), David Fury (Buffy, Angel, Lost) and Ben Edlund (Angel, Firefly, The Tick) writing for the series, I think we'll be in for a treat. Adam Baldwin (Firefly) and Katie Finneran (Wonderfalls) are series regulars, not to mention, Amber Benson (Buffy) guests stars in episode 11. Robert Kral (Angel) will be scoring the series. Plus, it's being shot on the Buffy lot.

Looks like bringing on Tim Minear was mostly a cost-cutting move, they didn't need to use all that light there were usuing in the original pilot.

Some of the reviews I've read have been terrible, but the Angel/Firefly creative lineage is enough for me to tune in.

The review in the San Francisco Chronicle this morning was not good. They said the lead actress was horrible and that after changing the premise of the show they should have changed her as well. Tim Goodman said the only thing good about the show is Peter Coyote and that there is a reason this is being burned off for the Summer.

Herc's six reasons to watch The Inside:

http://www.aintitcool.com/display.cgi?id=20406

From the Cincinnati Post:
"The Inside" (June 8, Fox): The last thing we need is a new cop show, but this tale of a special FBI unit that investigates serial crimes is full of wicked good twists and turns and great characters including Peter Coyote's amoral chief. Newcomer Rachel Nichols is excellent as a child-abduction victim who grows up to be an FBI profiler.

Source
From the Baltimore Sun:
Compelling 'Inside' more than graphic
Drama taps wealth of police procedurals

One of the first images showcased on The Inside, a new crime drama premiering tonight at 9 on Fox, is that of a dead woman with half her face cut off. Even without the setting of an abandoned warehouse with rats scurrying around the corpse, gruesome would only start to describe the scene.

But just in case there are any viewers for whom the image is not graphic enough, the corpse is revisited a couple of scenes later at the morgue, with the coroner attempting to reattach the severed flap of face. Viewers get an even closer look this time.

Eating a large meal before sitting down to watch The Inside is not recommended.

And, yet, despite that warning, this series from Tim Minear, who wrote for The X-Files and Angel, has an almost hypnotic power to draw one into its darkness. While The Inside borrows its premise, look and feel from a number of hit dramas - Medium (NBC), CSI: Crime Scene Investigation and Without a Trace (CBS), The X-Files and 24 (Fox) - Minear manages to give the series its own distinctively edgy and paranoid sensibility. He is a seductive storyteller, but the tales he tells in the first two episodes of The Inside leave one feeling decidedly unsettled.

The 24 part involves three producers from that hit show heading up the creative team - Howard Gordon, David Nevins and Brian Grazer. Like 24, The Inside is set in the Los Angeles bureau of a specialized team of crime fighters working in the Justice Department.

Instead of CTU (Counter Terrorism Unit) featuring Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland), here it is VCU (Violent Crimes Unit) featuring Virgil "Web" Webster (Peter Coyote). VCU is described in a Fox press release as a "rogue division," much as CTU was when Bauer was in charge.

But for all of that shared geography and FBI bureaucracy, the comparisons between 24 and The Inside basically end with the premise. Webster is less Bauer than he is a cross between CSI's Gil Grissom (William Petersen) and Jack Malone (Anthony LaPaglia) of Without a Trace. As weird and remote as Grissom, and seemingly as troubled as Malone, Webster autocratically runs a handpicked unit of skilled agents who specialize in serial crimes (in the first two episodes, men who mutilate and kill women).

The aforementioned corpse in tonight's pilot is one of Webster's agents. Her mistake, in Webster's words, was "letting the killer get inside her head." Before her autopsy, Webster already has a replacement on-board from Washington, Special Agent Rebecca Locke (Rachel Nichols), a woman in her 20s who seems to form psychic bonds with killers and victims. This is the part of The Inside that clearly imitates NBC's midseason hit, Medium.

Agent Locke was abducted as a child, and after 18 months, managed to escape her captor. The scars of that ordeal are apparent. The fresh twist here is in the way Webster seems to ruthlessly exploit Locke's vulnerability, troubled past and psychic skills to solve cases and boost the unit's performance rating. Is she his fair-haired, star agent, or his victim?

Special Agent Paul Ryan (Jay Harrington), self-described as the "conscience" of the team, believes the latter and takes it upon himself to protect Locke. The power dynamic and psychological triangle involving Ryan, Webster and Locke are straight out of Without a Trace.

Locke suffers horrifying visions. At one point, she sees a flash image in her mind's eye of the killer, who not only severs faces but also skins the hands of his victims. He is licking one of those hands like an ice cream cone as he calls to Locke.

The hunt to catch him before he kills again makes for compelling drama, but remember the warning: The Inside is not a series for those whose stomachs are easily unsettled.

From New York Daily News:
A pretty solid 'Inside' story

If there's one twist left in the crime procedural drama, the new Fox drama series "The Inside" may have found it.

Take one part "CSI," two parts "Silence of the Lambs," a pinch of "Seven" and mix vigorously. Keep the lights low, the gross factor high, and, like "House," never make a right diagnosis before first suggesting a wrong one.

It sounds formulaic and derivative, and much of it is. Yet "The Inside" (premiering tonight at 9) has a lot going for it, including a few well-delineated characters, a tantalizing sense of moral ambiguity, a central mystery whose secrets are doled out very sparingly, and plots and twists that are well above the norm for the violent-crimes genre.

Besides - and this is no small factor, not when the broadcast networks have unveiled five new reality series in the past nine days - "The Inside" is scripted!

And it's acted!

The creator here, as well as the pilot's director and writer, is Tim Minear, a long-time Joss Whedon executive producer whose show credits include "Angel" and "Firefly."

The most recognizable star is Peter Coyote, playing the bullying, manipulative head of a special FBI Violent Crimes Unit based in Los Angeles.

In tonight's opener, we're introduced to his team, which includes "Firefly" cast member Adam Baldwin as an agent who loves to go undercover, Jay Harrington as an agent who serves as the unit's Jiminy Cricket-type conscience, Nelsan Ellis as the requisite computer expert and Katie Finneran as an agent who, in the three episodes sent for preview, doesn't do much.

The protagonist, though, is fresh-faced new hire Rebecca Locke, played by former model Rachel Nichols. Rebecca is hired to be an FBI profiler precisely because of her secret, tragic past, which isn't secret from the boss: At age 10, Rebecca was abducted by a serial killer known as "The Apostle" and held captive for 18 months before she escaped on her own initiative.

What horrible things happened to her? "The Inside," to its credit, doesn't spell it out. We see subliminal images just before she faints; we see her terror when she finds herself, in one of these first few shows, newly captured and handcuffed. The only real fact in evidence, though, is that Rebecca, when she's analyzing a crime scene or other evidence, clearly has unusual insight into both victim and aggressor.

The summertime launch of "The Inside" suggests a slight hesitancy from the network, perhaps because the grisliness of certain scenes (a half-peeled face in tonight's show, for starters), perhaps because at least one member of the VCU takes a life without apparent remorse or repercussions.

The show, though, held my interest, had me guessing and even impressed me with the tenuous relationship between independent Rebecca and Harrington's protective Paul Ryan.

Like NBC's "Medium," "The Inside" could be a sleeper success - a new crime-fighting series with a strong, troubled woman at dead center, surrounded by death itself.

Why does Jay Harrington continue to get work? He's so bland.

The psyche-out wasn't all that clever (saw it coming from a mile away).

Adam Baldwin is wasted on this show (so far).

I liked Tim Minear in Buffy and Angel however, I didn't care much for the pilot. The use of the "flash" segueways was cool in Angel but I find it annoying in this show.

I didn't connect with any of the principal cast including Peter Coyote. Hope it gets better.

I think that was too much story for an hour and that they really dumbed down the procedural story to make way for the character development they had to get done in the first episode.

I'll be there for at least several more episodes. It definitely does seem the TV Guide/E!/Zap2It folks I normally read were less than enthused, and it does smell like a summer burn off of a show they easily could have either moved up to spring or held back for fall.

I didn't think it was that bad. I agree that the case seemed like a case that would normaly be used for a season long arc instead of wrapped up in a single episode.

Hopefully they'll give us more background on her and the unit in the coming weeks.

This episode probably wasn’t meant to be the pilot. Knowing FOX they most likely gave it the Firefly treatment and juggled the episodes around. Ensuring its cancellation just as people begin to really enjoy the show.

The plot wasn't that bad, but all the acting seemed pretty stiff.

I'm not sure I agree with you a hundred percent on your police work, there, Lou.

I don't really see how they could have meant that as anything but the first episode. Sure, it wasn't the original pilot (if indeed there was a pilot shot for the first concept). This episode introduced the characters, though. That was a big part of the problem with how they did Firefly.

Yeah you’re right, this was meant to be a version of the pilot. I have no doubt FOX demanded more action and less character development or connection.

Even though I enjoyed it, and will watch all the episodes. One thing is for sure, FOX will pull the plug much too early.

I guess I'm in the minority, I thoroughly enjoyed the show. I was going in blind though, I hadn't really kept up on it. Had no idea it was being done by Minear, Espenson, Fury and Edlund.

I noticed the killer guy had "Wolfram Security" on his shirt, and thought that was rather odd and had to be an homage to Angel. Well, obviously it was. As a Buffy/Angel/Firefly/Wonderfalls fan, it'll be fun to watch for the little references in addition to this being a fairly good show for what it is, a "whodunit".

Rachel Nichols is hot but the show (or at least the first ep) is a whooooooole lot of talking about nothing in a dark office.

Starts out interesting, with a twist right away.. then it is 20+ min of talking in the office.. then a little cut away, then right back to the dark office for more talking. I don't really mind that if I know who the characters are or it's giving at least a little back story to the characters.. Sep in this case it was more like they just sort of argued about nothing.. Really felt like I was watching an Xfiles from 2-4 seasons in where one of the characters goes off on a rant but in those cases you know wtf they were talking about or at the least the characters background etc..

I'll give the show another shot being nothing else really new on in summer time but I would not be too shocked if it got pulled quick.. Not sure the audience for this sort of show is watching at the start of summer..
