    Season 1 of The Pretender is a season of discovery of the characters and also for the characters of Jarod, Miss Parker, and (to a lesserSeason 1 of The Pretender is a season of discovery of the characters and also for the characters of Jarod, Miss Parker, and (to a lesser extent) Sydney. The episodes are well-crafted and filled with action, adventure and comedy. Miss Parker has some of her best one-liners in these episodes. Season 1 is the season to become ensnared in the mythology of the genius child snatched from his parents and brought into a strange world where he can become everything he wants to be but does not know quite who he is, something which he longs to correct. The role of Jarod is played with perfect precision by Michael T. Weiss as if he was born for it. In Season one we also see Miss Parker's character unfolding as the episodes progress and in this role, Andrea Parker brilliantly portrays a strong woman whom you can't help but feel something for, despite what is her true mission, because there are many facets of her character revealed, starting in this season. Patrick Bauchau in the role of Sydney shines a different light on the action, through his psychiatrist's eyes and proves to be another perfect casting choice. Season one begins a journey that charms viewers and hooks them with the characters and the action so that they must return for more. Full Review »
