Next Big Thing?
Hard to ignore some of the similarities between I Am Number Four and the old Roswell TV series. What's interesting is the apparent target audience: young males/boys. Will that audience will respond in the same way tween girls did with the Twilight franchise? Jumper tried and mostly fizzled. BTW, James Frey (yes, that one) is the devil. Don't believe me? Read this.
I like the narration by the kids, but the rest appears to be more of the same. Still, Steven Spielberg is the executive producer, so I'll give it a couple of episodes.
The only thing I know about trends is not to chase them. Aliens might be hot now, but all it takes is a flop or two.
