I had just finished watching "Mystery" on PBS when "Fallen" came on. It was a nice bit of diversion--like a cross between the American series "24," and the Bourne identity. 24 has really gone down hill since the first two seasons, but it had a nice tension at first.
Fallen is fast paced and violent, and the characters are not terribly complex, but the energy is good, and I got caught up in the plot line even though I was tired when I started watching it.
Jason Shepherd works as the lead in Fallen because he is physically imposing and somewhat mercurial. There were a lot of Spy TV stereotypes, but on the whole, I found it entertaining.
