  • Another Good Show Thrown Away by Comcast Bean Counters

    9.5
    This show started off with a great premise. There was some muddle towards the middle but they took a break to straighten that out. When they resumed shooting it was back on track. And what a track it was!



    The pairing of Rachel Taylor, who was great, and Lance Gross, who nailed his part, was brilliant. Contrary to what someone wrote, it was clear that Meg Fitch was not getting away with the kidnapping.



    This is yet another example of the incredibly incompetent Comcast bean counters and their fellow incompetent executives, who can't recognize a great series, nor properly promote it, nor give it the opportunity to build an audience. Nor keep good ones going because they "cost money" ( Eureka, Warehouse 13 et al).moreless
  • THAT Ending? Really?! Please Renew!!

    8.0
    After trying to get on board with the similar themed show Hostages last year, I was cautious of this show in the beginning, but I loved it from the start. The big reveal with Gibson at the end of the pilot kicked off a firestorm of intrigue, assassinations and everything in between.

    Knowing that this was always going to be a short-lived show, I thought the writers would come up with clever ways to wrap-up the story and they did. And there's the problem right there. In a rush to see justice delivered to Gibson, they forgot that he was the first victim in the storyline, the first parent if you will. forced to do terrible things to protect his daughter.

    When the final minutes of the series expired therefore, I was not amongst those to cheer his arrest or the fact that Meg Fitch gets away with a kidnapping of her own. the only solace I can muster for this lacklustre finale is the improbable (not to mention last minute) renewal and the last command prompt / text message in Gibson's endgame protocol. I can always imagine the future of the story to be Fitch the b***ch does time for her own involvement, Gibson escapes and his daughter finds out about Weinbrener. I would have given the show a 9/10 for a good finish but when Beth Ann found out and Gibson was arrested it dropped to an 8/10.moreless
  • I liked it!

    8.5
    My wife and I both got sucked into it at the get-go, because of the definitely different storyline, and we enjoyed it throughout. It kept us hanging, despite some of the more obvious flaws (mostly timing and special effects), tho we spotted it as a single-story-arc series that would have a definite end. Didn't matter, we were hooked, and we watched every episode.



    Tonight was the finale, and I figured that would be that, and nice short series that explored the concept about as deeply as it could. Imagine my surprise (***SPOILER ALERT ***)

    when I see the cliffhanger scene at the very end!! WTF??



    So to the internet I go! Only to find out that it's been cancelled for a few weeks (wtf), and that most people think it's "too slow" (not surprising given the relative attention span of most viewers--a gnat has more). Couple the mental deficiency of most viewers with NBC's lack of advertising the show, I can see why it went south. I doubt seriously it would have the legs to get thru another full season (at least without better story development) on this premise; but another couple episodes could've closed it off decently. But I do blame the way it ended on the writers and production crews, because it felt like they knew by the halfway-2/3s point that they were done, and decided to mail it in.



    Sad... but it did pass some off-season viewing time.moreless
  • Another good potential wasted

    4.0
    I wanted to give this show a chance. I did. 8 episodes in, it's only getting worse. The plot is thinner than a Hollywood celebrity after a crash diet, and the writing is.. poor. As enjoyable as this show was in the first 3 or 4 episodes it just keeps getting more ridiculous. It had amazing potential. It could've been really really good. It strives to be thrilling and nail-biting but it's just OK. Also - what kind of FBI agent announces herself as "Agent Suzie"?! Sorry, Rachel Taylor, but action is not your forte.moreless
  • This show is a crisis all by itself

    1.0
    I keep watching this just to see how much more stupid it can become. While television and movies exist to suspend disbelief, this show is ridiculous. Last night didn't disappoint; a lone Chinese diplomat . spy) brings down the entire eastern seaboard with a cyberattack, gas mains are exploding, our nation's top law enforcement agency is crippled, and then miraculously she Is found in a church after the President gives up a spy in Beijing, and "wahlah" - moments later all is restored and back to normal. Meanwhile the kidnapped kids continue to basically roam at will around the house they are being held in. This show started with promise, and quickly descended to absurd, and now has hit a new low. That having been said, I'm going to watch the finale next week (called "Found") just to see if they can top this week's hilarity with something even more stupid. This show brings new meaning to "jump themoreless
  • AN ASTEROID HAS WIPED OUT THE EARTH

    Depends On What Fails: NBC Cancels Community, Revolution, Dracula, Believe, Crisis, and Growing Up Fisher (UPDATED)

    It's five seasons and no movie for the wacky comedy, and two seasons and lights out for Eric Kripke's powerless drama.

  • TAKEN HOSTAGE

    Both shows will be replaced by an SNL special on May 18, and we don't know whether they'll return.
