The BlackList on Worlds Apart:
The strongest aspect of this script is the premise itself. This is a grounded and realistic way in to a science fiction political thriller. The world of the story is well defined and the writer has clearly done a lot of work creating a backstory and mythos to the [alien] civilization. Each and every character in this script is well developed with their own individual wants, needs, goals, and point of view. The budding romance between George and Zort'A is a wonderful way to get audiences invested in their journey. The writer does a brilliant job at bringing these characters to life through lively and entertaining dialogue. Zachary's dialogue in particular makes for some lively and entertaining moments. The pilot story is well structured and sets up the series going forward in a way that will make audiences want to see what happens next.
Score: 7

BlueCat on Worlds Apart:
“Worlds Apart” is a quickly paced science fiction comedy with clearly written characters in an interesting scenario. Descriptions are ably crafted and keep the action relevant to the storytelling, particularly with regard to the non-English scenes showing the alien guys discussing and plotting. The visual storytelling works well in these scenes.
The overall concept is a lot of fun: an alien race makes first contact and establishes diplomatic relations with Earth, but neither race fully trusts the other, and for good reason. The idea of having the UN as an organization engaging in incompetent nepotism is a compelling parody and helps set the stage for ironic and awkward situations.
