This week’s failed pilot TL;DR:
Rachael Leigh Cook is an FBI agent born without the gene for fear. Based on books from the author of Sweet Valley High. Dumb, and surprisingly dull despite a scene with an attempted milk drowning (really).
Gaia Moore (Rachael Leigh Cook) was born without the gene for fear (not a thing). Because of this, her body doesn’t produce adrenaline, so she has heightened strength and reflexes (also not a thing). The FBI send her undercover into an identity theft ring who are convinced she’s not a cop because she’s not scared of stuff (maybe a thing? Are hackers really dumb?)
Turns out, not feeling fear isn’t all that useful. Even against milk*.
*Just listen to the podcast. We’ll try to explain it.
