REVERIE
May 30, 2018  | By David Bianculli

NBC, 10:00 p.m. ET

 

SERIES PREMIERE: The good news: This new sci-fi summer series stars Sarah Shahi, the Person of Interest co-star who’s been an impressive but underrated TV player ever since playing Carmen in The L Word and starring opposite Damian Lewis in 2002’s Life. The bad news: This new series comes from Mickey Fisher, whose last broadcast network summer series was CBS’s senseless Extant. And this new one, Reverie, stars Shahi as a woman who ventures into the artificial realities of others to try and retrieve them – a plot and premise that’s part Total Recall, part The Cell. The opening hour is a disappointment, even with low expectations. But perhaps, visually, it’ll expand in time, and get at least as innovative as Fox’s virtual-reality-exploring drama series VR.5 – which starred Lori Singer, and was made way, way back in 1995. For a full review, see Ed Bark's Uncle Barky's Bytes.
