  • Good start to a potentially excellent show.

    I'll start by admitting I didn't care for the photography before, and immediately after the robbery sequence. Very distracting with the jump cuts, flashes, and no real focus on any of the characters. (I had no clue which sister had died till later.)
    On the other hand, the fact we weren't shown what happened in the bank is a good thing. Otherwise that would be most, if not all, of the whole story. We're led to believe that something happened in there that wasn't a simple bank robbery. The writers have admitted to us in a magazine blurb that what happened was "weird."
    Coming on the heels of Lost, the characters seemed wooden, and somewhat uninteresting by comparison. But maybe the premise, concept, and storyline will be enough to drive the show.
    I know I'm going to give this one a chance.
