  • In this first episode, we are introduced to who will make up the team. It focuses on Nathan Ford, an ex-insurance investigator that got back stolen goods. He leads a team who are very good at what they do.

    I'd seen the previews and was completely intrigued. Overall, I enjoyed the episode. It was nice seeing Christian Kane (Eliot) playing another kind of bad guy, but he wasn't another Lindsey (from Angel). It could be a bit slow moving in places, but it was well-plotted. It was a nice introduction to the characters and to the concept of the show. The storyline was quite intriguing, complete with twist towards the beginning. Most of the time, that kind of plot-advancing twist is either dumb or cheesy. This was actually well done. I'm looking forward to the rest of the first season and the development that should happen.
