Intense, Mysterious Fun
12 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show will keep you on your toes. You need to see every episode or you will miss crucial plot twists. But it's worth it!

I have to disagree 100% with the negative reviews of the show. The acting, wardrobe, sets, and plot are all great! While every single situation isn't believable, it isn't supposed to be. It's called "suspension of disbelief," and those who aren't capable of it should not be watching TV. Besides, those who are fans of "Buffy" and "Lost" are complaining about the show not being realistic? Give me a break! Watch the first three episodes, and I guarantee you'll be hooked!! You'll spend your whole weekend watching one episode after another. The series is stylish and suspenseful. While some plot twists you might see coming, most will surprise and intrigue you--leaving you wanting more.

Sarah Michelle Gellar plays the dual roles with aplomb, clearly delineating the personality differences between the two. Pohala and Groffard are also excellent.

All in all, the show is fun, fun, fun to watch even if it isn't the most realistic drama of all time. The biggest shortcoming is the CW canceling it before resolving the story. Big mistake. I just hope enough fans watch and comment on the series to motivate the show's creators to wrap up the story in a second season, a mini-series, or a TV movie.
