    So many things to say about this show. It's a little bit Lost, a little bit Paranormal Activity and very recently a little bit survival horror.



    +The main characters are perfect in their roles and I find myself caring about who I am supposed to and often even who I'm not supposed to.



    +The main story is compelling and interesting.



    +Some of the weekly stories are exciting and quite scary.



    +The romance is there but it is subtle and doesn't hog the spotlight.



    Just a few negatives but they by no means outweigh the good:



    -Some of the weekly stories are a little hokey or simply weak in comparison to the better ones.



    -The overloaded explanations. The writers use Jahel's psychic powers and knowledge of folklore a little to liberally for my tastes. This leads to some premature mystery spoiling before we've even had a chance to scratch our heads.



    I'm really looking forward to the finale and a 2nd season. Even if this ends up getting cancelled I would still highly recommend watching the first season.
