ATTENTION, SPOILERS AHEAD!
This Monday (1), NBC premiered the series Debris, a science fiction production that promises to involve the public in sinister plots. Certainly, one of the greatest inspirations of the writers is the classic X file.
The dynamics between the main characters is very referential. But is all this enough to hold the audience?
Debris was developed by JH Wyman, the same as Fringe, and stars Jonathan Tucker and Riann Steele, who respectively play Bryan Beneventi and Finola Jones. The two are special agents who are working on a very important mission to track all the wreckage of an alien ship wreck.

Series Debris, from NBC, wants to captivate the public with its dark mysteries
The first episode of Debris starts at a New York hotel, where a businessman is trying to negotiate the sale of two pieces of what he reports as an alien spaceship. However, as everything seems very suspicious, the entire negotiation ends abruptly, causing everyone involved to disperse.
It is in this context that the public knows the main characters in their respective routines. Finola’s boss, Priya (Anjali Jay), and Bryan’s partner, Maddox (Norbert Leo Butz), highlight the new MI6 and CIA mission as a way of introducing the subject into the narrative.
While, little by little, the investigation is being established, there is the insertion of other characters in other circumstances. They arise precisely to feed the interest of the spectators, planting doubts and, at the same time, clues about what may come next. In this way, some almost unexplainable supernatural events are watched.
In this sense, the pilot serves more as a guide for introducing characters and situations. Going deeper into Bryan, it turns out that he is a veteran of the Afghan War. His main objective in the mission is to ensure his team that the first discoveries related to alien technologies are collected and analyzed by the CIA.
Finola, on the other hand, has a dramatic past. She believes that through the wreckage of the hypothetically alien spacecraft, scholars will be able to find answers to cure diseases and also change the course of human history.
It is worth adding that Finola’s late father, an ingenious astrophysicist, was able to view the wreckage of the alien spacecraft about six months ago, through a telescope.
As the narrative progresses, the characters will unravel some of the mysteries presented at the beginning of the pilot. However, there are many uncertainties lurking around the path of everyone involved, which leaves several loose ends to be resolved later.
The most interesting, with all these questions put to the test, are the theories formulated and the hypotheses for the solution of the problems. In this way, the initial episode shows its strength and guarantees good moments to the public, instigating them to continue to follow that story for a few more weeks.
So don’t miss it! Next Monday (8), a new episode of Debris will appear on NBC.
