Watch the First Two Minutes of NBC’s Believe

NBC was smart to take a few seconds at the beginning of the new Believe teaser clip to highlight the fact that Academy Award-winning Gravity director Alfonso Cuarón co-wrote and directed the show's pilot. If they hadn't, the teaser would just be two minutes of a family being brutally attacked by some kind of ruthless, shadowy task force. We understand the audience needs some kind of backstory, but as far as we're concerned, they can go ahead and skip right to the the part in the commercial where the little girl goes all Firestarter with a flock of birds.
