Oh Yes!
25 May 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I hated lost, but this is 'lostesque' it is just an amazing adventure. Each episode could be an episode in the twilight zone, but they have strung it together with the "Searching for Dr Cole" theme.

I loved it, I found myself glued to each episode, there are just no dull parts. I don't know if they will or can hold this together for a second season, but so far it is amazing.

Every film of 'magic', 'exorcism', 'paranormal', 'mythology' etc, is in this series - you watch the first episode and wonder if it can keep it up - but in my humble opinion each episode just gets better. I am not easily fooled into watching and being sucked into a series, this one had me captivated.

Of course there are some downfalls, like "How do they keep that cell phone, or video camera, charged for months", but who cares, the show is great!

Please, Please keep up the great work, don't let this show die the normal death of series 2 mediocrity.
