Ellen and her family are held captive in their home by Carlisle, a desperate man doing the wrong thing for the right reasons, who orders her to assassinate the President when she operates on him.

Obvious and and not well thought out
12 October 2013 | by See all my reviews

I have been watching this show for three weeks now, And every episode i ask myself, Why? Why am i still watching this show.

The plot of the show is that they want to assassinate the president of America, I have watched to many TV shows and movies to believe for one second that they will succeed.

Three outcomes i predict.

1)-The family will somehow escape the captors by the end of season one (Cliffhanger / end of series)

2)-The captors will kill one of the family members (The dad most likely) By the end of the first season. And the series will end.

3)-And most likely, The network will droop the show within the next four weeks.

Any way you look at it, This show is doomed. Terrible idea for a series.
