Storyline

Seventeen year old James is convinced that he is a psychopath, having killed animals since the age of nine and now seeking a human victim. At school he meets angry, foul-mouthed Alyssa, whom he marks as a potential victim and dates uneasily, sharing with her his disdain of his cheery single father Phil. After attending a party given by her mother Gwen and lustful step-father Tony Alyssa persuades James to steal Phil's car and run away with her. Written by don @ minifie-1

Amazing Pilot!
8 January 2018 | by KrazyJokeSee all my reviews

This pilot has to be one of the greatest pilot ever made ! It's quick, funny, it introduces us to the characters, the acting is really good and it makes us see what the show is really about ! We already see the drama between our two main characters and their intention in a compltly genuine episode that introduces it all!
