You don't need Amalia's gift of foresight to see how transformative this could be, transcending Whedon's tired formula to create something bolder and more current, something less derivative of the many stories like this that have come before.
The world-building, at least, is extensive, and it's possible later episodes might benefit from having carved out so much narrative real estate, so many competing interests. But these early episodes are crowded.
It would fit a tidy narrative if The Nevers was terrible ... but it's not. The rollicking pilot, which Whedon wrote and directed, is the most unexpectedly entertaining, hour-long TV joyride so far this year.
"The Nevers'" inconsistencies can make for a maddening viewing experience - sending you from the edge of your seat to sprawled out on the floor, trying to find your eyes after they rolled out of your head... But I'd be lying if I said I'm done.
