  • The show\'s attempt to generate suspense and mystery over the robbery feels forced. The pacing doesn't work. The story's climax lies in the past; nothing even vaguely intruiging seems to lie in the characters\' futures.

    Besides maybe boring each other, and the viewers, to death. Such as sitting around in coffeeshops talking mysteriously about said robbery, or having predictable romantic infedilities with each other while crying hauntedly about said robbery. I expect the show\'s future to be equally dismal.

    Too bad, really. The concept pushed by the trailer seemed kind of interesting. But now it almost feels like they wrote the lines for the trailer first, threw in a few hooks, then just added the rest of the pilot as filler.

    And it doesn't help the show that it airs right after Lost, which is everything this show isn't. If you're looking for a new show with strong characters and an unlikely but compelling premise, try Heroes, or even Jericho.
