I'm having trouble coming up with springboards for Unseen
. I've got a rich world. Interesting characters. But the stories aren't character stories, they're supernatural ones, and ...
... that may be the problem. I'm coming at it from a supernatural point of view instead of a character point of view. Maybe if I come at it from "what's going on in Rebecca's life and how does the supernatural impinge on that" rather than the other way around, I can figure out what happens in a typical episode of the show.
Otherwise I'm going to have to put the pitch down for a bit. Because right now I'm not seeing the show. I'm seeing the bible for the show, but not the episodes.
The best standalone eps of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and, probably, any good f&sf show have the supernatural as a metaphor for a character problem. Old Twilight Zones often did it in the most obvious way: a man who wants to be alone becomes the last person on Earth, etc. Sometimes you shouldn't be afraid to start with the obvious. You just shouldn't end there.
