Great pilot; wish it was representative of the series
I really enjoyed the first episode of Crisis, which was well-paced, engaging and intriguing. I was honestly excited for the series. But then, after watching two more episodes plus the first ten minutes of one more, I stopped.
I stopped because the series was really not that pilot. The pilot was simply setting up the premise, which involves watching a psychopath with a possible noble aim force kidnapped kids powerful parents to do things to further his ends.
There are a few things that bothered me about this. First off, the psychopath has people working for him who don't seem to be invested in the psychopath's goal and it's unclear why they're taking orders from a guy who comes across as nuts. And the whole parents doing horrific things to save their children is a little far-fetched. Some would, some wouldn't, but the fact is, a number would be likely to look to the government to help them rather than sneak around. It just never convinced me.
Also, I really liked that black guy who was a big part of the first episode, but I saw less of him and more of that woman, and I just didn't find her that interesting a character (nor did I care about her sibling rivalry.
I would have watched the series I expected from the initial episode, but I have no interest in watching the series that followed it.
