13. Chapter 13 RETURN OF THE PRETENDER by Alex [Reviews - 1] starstarstarstarstar (153 words)

An episodic radio script (teaser.) Bringing posibility toward solving the time gap and circumstance problem with rebooting the series. Dedicated to REBIRTH for making it conception possible. 

14. Chapter 14 "Return of TP" - PILOT PART 2 by Alex [Reviews - 0] (191 words)

NOTE: This is a work in progress with continuing to solve the enigma with regard to the time gap and circumstance change with rebooting the series.


Expanding on the episodic radio promo, a little more detail is given here in synopsis form toward making this reboot achievable. Its conception as well as its believability as made possible by REBIRTH has surely lead toward the possibility of its achievement!

PILOT Part 2 is just that. Part 2 because part 1 is reserved for the TP creators to fill in the blanks with regard to where the series left off before the cancellation. Since no one knows for sure what this continuation would have been since the series was cancelled, picking up with a possible REBOOT and making that possible would logically begin with PART 2.

NOTE: (With regard to what the remaining series would have been) would be full knowledge of the rest of the story arc from a writer and production point of view which of course would be the structure which PILOT part 1 would be framed around. The details, however, would be spread out beyond the pilot into the rest of the series as revealed in the subplots/flashbacks.
