Stitchers: "Friends In Low Places" Episode Review  
Stitchers 1.02 "Friends In Low Places"

Well, things certainly made for a fast development there.

I didn't expect Allison's character, Camille, to be revealed as an agent as well. Or, at least someone who has been recruited by the Stitchers Program to keep an eye on Kirsten and have her onboard. I was thinking that she would've been given more information and then eventually gone to the headquarters at some point. Though I'm liking this development already of her already having been in the loop. It should be interesting seeing her and Kirsten's relationship from this point on.

I'm also loving Detective Fisher being included into the loop as well, and obviously it wouldn't have happened if Kirsten hadn't been so ultimately blunt about things. Something I'm finding really entertaining because she pretty much states the obvious without tiptoeing around things. She is direct and straight to the point, which for what they do can be very critical. Granted she lacks social awareness of situations, which can lead her into trouble. But now with the FBI on their side things can be somewhat handled.

The second episode, I felt, really combined what I felt should have been for like a two-hour season premiere. It gave us more of the team being placed together, reveals about characters, and it sets up more for what the season is going to be about: Kirsten finding out what happened to her adoptive father, who her parents are, and how it all ties together.

I'm still deciding my overall feelings on the show. I'm not bored with it, it's entertaining and I like the characters. I'll definitely keep watching to see how it goes. I'm just undecided on whether it'll become a fannish show or just a casual show that I enjoy watching. We shall see in due time.

Best part of the episode though? Allison Scagliotti. Always and forever. Camille's level of sarcastic sass and Kirsten's deadpan bluntness is what makes the majority of this show worthwhile to me, imho. If nothing else, that is what I have.

I feel the same way about Stitchers.

So was this better than the pilot then? Because that left my very unimpressed.

I'd say so. I mean, I'm still figuring out the show myself, but it was interesting to watch and some of the developments that happened caught me by surprise a bit since usually reveals about who is spying on who and having the detective who is curious about the main character don't often get included until later in a season.

It seems like this show is moving very fast, which isn't bad necessarily but I'm not used to it. I also find that every character is just a little too witty. It's good to have some humor, but a lot of the interactions didn't come across as very natural to me. I like it enough to keep watching but I'm not expecting it to become a favorite.

It's a very unusual thing, since usually shows tend to draw out certain reveals to lure in viewers with the suspense. Here it's like they're already establishing the team unit very early on. Possibly for more reveals down the line?

I feel like it's a mixture of the Buffverse and Gilmore Girls in terms of the wit, just set in a scifi crime procedural. I could do without the dudes using their broness at times, though, and some of the lines seem awkward as well. But otherwise it is fast-paced because if the wit, I think. Though perhaps the show needs to find its rhythm still.
