Although reminiscent of Frontline, and The Games, this series, after two episodes seems to be missing a main ingredient the other two series offered. Likable characters. It's well written, topical, and seems to be off to a good start.
Obviously after two episodes it's too early to reach a conclusion. Unfortuneatly our North American TV usually cans a series if it's not a hit overnight. That's why we see so much Deck on the network channels, and the migration of viewers to the more independent channels, like HBO, the Comedy Channel etc. If anybody's ever seen the classic Yes Minister British series they can see a perfect example of this type of format. It's amazingly well written, bitingly funny, and as watchable now as it was when first aired.
For Australia The Games will remain a classic and could play every four years ad infinitum, for as long as we have the Olympics. Frontline was great too, leaving the viewer wishing there'd been more to come.
If this series remembers it's important to have somebody to root for, and manages to balance its cleverness with the personal touch, it could be a great addition as well.
