Storyline

NSA-contracted encryption expert Roland Lowry is kidnapped while talking to motherless pre-teen son Evan on the way to general Tom Nathanson of the Pacific command. ICT expert Adam 'Toast' Charles helps the duo realize how spectacularly dangerous the 'skeleton key' Roland completed can be, and that it's being used. Kono meanwhile guards Evan, but the team realizes too late Roland's girlfriend Natalie Reed is on the fiends' side, being an alias of Nadia Lukovic. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Whenever they are seen inside Dano's Camaro the door locks are shown in the up position. They automatically lock into the down position when the car reaches 10 mph, and could only be up if someone manually pressed the unlock button located in the center console (between the air handling knobs) while the car is in motion already.

Makes the Pilot look like Shakespeare
1 October 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dug the pilot. Written by screenwriters returning to TV, and directed by film director Len Wiseman. This show could be the rare remake that works, I thought.

Episode 2 was generic TV crap of the easiest kind. Every show that fails makes the same mistake: shoot the pilot, make it good, get it picked up, then pawn off the rest of season 1 to inferior writers and directors. Episode 2 fits that cliché so neatly, I almost turned it off, but suffered through it just to say I gave it the chance.

The direction is lazy, with long scenes of uninteresting talking, shot as flatly as possible, before the next action sequence that (unlike the pilot) turned out to have little or no meaning. The ending can be seen a mile away. Even though the Governor gave our heroes carte blanche to do what they "had to do" to catch the bad guys (in the pilot), no explanation is given why our heroes can't just call the cops in on this case, since an important guy is kidnapped for his hacker skills. Our heroes find him thanks to random coincidence, our heroine finds out who the spy is thanks to random coincidence, and the Asian characters are ignored by the white characters except when it's time to give orders.

This is why remakes get cancelled. I'll give Episode 3 about twenty minutes, but if it's not interesting, then I don't care what the rest of the show has to offer. It's not fun, it's not funny, and only Scott Caan even bothers to play an actual character. I'm out, and I suspect the rest of America will be by mid-October.
