With Earth rapidly becoming uninhabitable, pioneers seek to colonize the harsh terrain of the planet Carpathia. 10 years later, the town of Forthaven faces danger as the planet's dark secrets are revealed.
I love this show because it is similar to the CSI shows, yet it has a scientific twist to it. Everything is explained scientifically, as on my other favorites, Bones. It's very refreshing to divert from the good guy/ bad guy routine, and concentrate more on the scientific side of how they solved the crime.
If you can't follow the "squint talk" then you probably won't like this show. It's geared towards the more intelligent society. Regardless of that, there is still enough action and comedy (if you get the jokes)
Both the main character could use some "tuning", but that will come with more seasons. The acting and story lines are very realistic, introducing crime scenarios that most of us had not thought possible.
