Interesting show, but takes a while to get going
29 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Still only halfway through the season as it airs on Sci-Fi. The first 8 or so episodes were really slow, and I understand why some people were turned off.

However, it is very different conceptually from any other sci-fi series I can think of, and it kept me intrigued. The writing staff was completely changed around episode 10 and things really started to come together and take off.

The acting is good, with some great performances by crazy 01 Boxer played by Michael Flippowich, as well as many in the supporting cast.

Filmed on location in South Africa, it does have definitely alien feel for those in the US. The culture is Western, but not American.

There's a lot unexpected in this show, in a good way, and it's hardly predictable. The 'hero' Charlie isn't trying to accomplish anything but getting home to his hot girlfriend. I'd recommend it for anyone who want's good sci-fi that's not in the action-adventure vein and requires a bit of intelligence on the part of the audience.
