Seemed Pretty Cheezy to Me
5 July 2009 | by See all my reviews

Perhaps, being over 50, this style of "drama" is outside my taste. Maybe there's more to this series than this single episode, which is the only one I watched, would suggest. But this seemed awfully cheesy to me. The cast consists of a handful of snotty, self-absorbed people who spend an hour dealing with what could be a national terror threat by bitching and arguing amongst themselves in an office environment. There's no real arc to the story. There's no character depth. They're just young people who are supposed to be portraying professional intelligence agents but who act like run-of-the-mill office cubicle riff-Raf. Crying. Yelling. Emoting for the camera.

It was, for me, as flat as yesterday's soda. A very cheap, untalented production. Sorry.
