    Good cast. Good locations. Good production. Good promise...

    ...but it was all just too implausible and contrived ~ little more than a dressed-up B-movie caper ~ with leading characters whose motivations and decisions were not realistic and their abilities/powers to affect reality rather far-fetched ~ a bit comic book, even.

    Am I being too harsh? 🙂

    Probably not.
    It had lots of promise and was hyped by the tv station.
    But we only managed 1 episode.

    Best TV in ages. But I don't disagree with you either.
