Storyline

The FBI estimates there are currently over 300 active serial killers in the United States. What would happen if these killers had a way of communicating and connecting with each other? What if they were able to work together and form alliances across the country? What if one brilliant psychotic serial killer was able to bring them all together and activate a following?

Extremely simplistic - not worth your time
27 February 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The only reason I've been watching this since episode 1 is in some blind hope of a miraculous recovery. Unfortunately there's no sign of it, every episode is as bad as the previous ones, or even worse. Finally I'm giving up.

Shockingly superficial developments, lack of the slightest resemblance of rationality and unbelievable/unrelatable characters, no patience with the writing. It seems more like theatre than TV, everything is exaggerated to a point of hilarity. No subtlety, it's all very quickly done with little appreciation of human nature. Tries to live off its shock value, both in the gratuitous violence and the ridiculously simplistic unrealistic developments and characters.

To me the acting is also poor, especially of the followers, they are so theatrical, doesn't suit motion picture. Kevin Bacon is also unimpressive but there's not much he could have done with the lousy script. It's all very lifeless.

Very disappointing, spend your time watching some insightful documentaries instead.

I'd feel guilty giving it 1 out of 10, after all I did struggle through a few episodes. So I give it 3, cos I'm having a good day.
