After a plane from Hamburg returns with no survivors, FBI agent Olivia Dunham goes after the only person that might shed some light on the incident - a scientist that has been in a mental hospital for the last 17 years.
When a commercial flight from Germany lands at Boston's Logan Airport without a single passenger or crew member on board alive, FBI agent Olivia Dunham is assigned to the investigative team. When her partner and lover John Scott suffers severe chemical burns, she seeks help from Dr. Walter Bishop a one-time university professor who experimented in the same field but has now been institutionalized for 17 years. To get his cooperation however, she has to get Bishop's son Peter's cooperation as well. The information they gather leads to Massive Dynamic, a huge multinational founded by someone who once shared laboratory space with Dr. Bishop. Agent Dunham also learns that what happened may have been part of a much larger pattern of strange phenomena.Written by
When John and Olivia share consciousness, at the graveyard, on the headstone to the right behind Olivia, the inscription reads "He's not dead". See more »
The pilot is supposed to be set in Boston yet the geography is clearly not that of Boston and every shot which shows the skyline is clearly that of another city. See more »

In Boston, a flight from Hamburg lands at the Boston's Logan Airport with passengers and crew dead with decomposed corpses. FBI Agent and liaison Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) and her partner John Scott (Mark Valley) are assigned to the investigation team by the Security Agent Phillip Broyles (Lance Reddick) and they follow a lead to a container store. Out of the blue, the find a suspect that blows up the location and Agent Scott is burned by chemicals but surprisingly survives totally burnt. Olivia has a secret love affair with Scott and they are in love with each other; so she researches who might save his life. She finds the name of the brilliant Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble), who has been interned in a mental institution for seventeen years after killing a guinea pig of his experiments. She seeks help with his son Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson), who is a genius but estranged to his father, and they rebuild his laboratory with the support of Agent Astrid Farnsworth (Jasika Nicole). Olivia accepts to be submitted to an experiment to find the responsible for the murders and her investigation leads them to the Massive Dynamic Corporation, where she is received by the executive Nina Sharp (Blair Brown). Now they need to find the suspect and the chemicals that have burnt Scott to save his life.
"Pilot" is a promising pilot of this series created by J.J. Abrams among other writers. The genre can not be labeled (maybe the same of "X-Files") and the line between heroes and villains is blurred. Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson and John Noble perform interesting characters with great lines. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Pilot"
