I have been watching the promos on this show and it looks like a mini series with an ongoing theme. Could be interesting and is going with the resurgence of NBC this season.

Hmmm...

 

It sounds like a description of network programming in general over the last few years.  :D

I thought it was pretty good.  Not exactly 'must see', but enjoyable.

I have agree with Drew, I did watch the entire first episode but it did not grab my interest enough to want to watch more so deleted the series recording.

I wont comment. But unless the acting is somehow great, I can't see the plot making it.

 

Plus I don't like Gillian Anderson as an aging blonde.

As some who does not believes in conspiracy theories, but loves to watch shows base on them, I am in.

I liked it, and thought it was pretty well done.

 

That said, the premise has a lot of built-in drama, and I prefer my drama to come from conflict that is a little less forced. It is just too easy to write dramatic stuff when its a matter of life and death, which is why I don't watch medical dramas. I like writing where the writers are forced to work much harder than that. The entirety of drama here seems to be based on what people will do under duress of their loved ones being threatened. I think they are going to need more than that to mount a really decent show.

 

But hey, anything with Gillian Anderson. She could read the phone book cover to cover, and I'm still in.


It's usually safe to talk honestly and openly with people because they typically are not really listening anyway.

From what I saw it looks like it is going to follow the plot development of a season of 24, except without quite the time pressure or shooting in the thigh. But following the basic arc where you think you know who's behind it, then it turns out they are under control of someone even higher up and more sinister.
