    Not sure the concept is timely, not sure I can take much more of the elongated stares, but I love the characters and the snippets of backstories presented in this pilot. This would have been better in a shorter timeslot, I think. It was very drawn-out, with scenes lasting a lot longer than they had any right to. The biggest draw, as previously mentioned, are the characters. However, there weren't any hooks beyond that. A few more episodes will tell if this is worthwhile or not.
