Phony, frustrating, tries too hard, incomplete story and script.
A really frustrating series to watch.
It doesn't give the audience the vital information they need. Instead the creators try deliberately to skirt around it and miss so much that it just leaves huge holes. It tries way too hard to be dramatic and poetic but fails at delivering any substance.
I'm a fan of shows with story continuity, so this show definitely isn't for anyone who likes their story line to make sense.
The characters just randomly and mysteriously come by their information or conclusions. Everyone seems to be completely in the loop about every shred of information, even when other characters are shown trying to keep it a secret. Meanwhile the audience isn't shown what they need to know, the story just jumps ahead as if half of the show was left on the cutting room floor. They go from point A to point C or D and you're just left thinking you missed something. I had to re watch part of episode 2 to try to figure out exactly how Roman came about knowing Peter's "secret". He just asks "can I watch"...watch WHAT? I'm glad you know something, Roman, cause I sure as hell don't...
Scenes start with characters carrying on a conversation that seems half over. And the scenes where they do try to talk are usually just a series of 1 word answers supposedly aided by contemptuous looks toward one another. The director is horrible, they're trying to accomplish a conversation with facial expressions instead of words and it just comes across as forced, obvious, and awkward. Overacting theater at it's finest.
This is twilight + porn - vampires (so far). Everyone smokes so you know they're cool and serious, intellectual and brooding. Ya, right. This show tries WAY too hard. It's basically like the show is Roman, vain, self absorbed, and phony.
