I started watching this show in France, every sunday night, two episodes in a row.. unfortunately in french but still loved it. The idea of 9 people being held hostage in a bank and then bonding in life is fantastic.
I agree with some that the execution of it was not great but maybe they should have given this show a chance!
It had all the elements to become succesful. Great characters/actors and so much possibility for storylines.
My personal favourites were Kim Raven and Tim Daly.
They should have turned this show into a mini-series with at least a satisfying end.. now it's keeping a lot of fans in the dark.. we will never know 'exactly' what happened in the bank.
