Storyline

Icey drug criminal Seth Gecko and his loony brother Rickie just escaped from prison and rob Pete's liquor store in the desert on their way to Mexico. As Sheriff Earl McGraw happens to drop by for some supplies, they shoot him from hiding, but are pinned down by his Ranger patrol partner Freddie Gonzalez. Cartel boss Carlos Madrigal toys with promises and his cut. The mysterious input comes from the lady customers the brothers initially held at gunpoint, apparently somehow nightmarish heirs of a dark Precolumbian supernatural secret. Written by KGF Vissers

Intriguing and Intense, worth a watch
14 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

An intense first episode from Robert Rodriguez, i enjoyed how unpredictable the gecko brothers are. I wasn't disappointed, defiantly worth a watch. I never watched the original and this might be of benefit to me, I've read reviews from people who did and they seem to find it predictable due to its similarity's in plot. But even still this is a new show and will unlikely follow the original plot every episode. Only downside is it struggled to explain the supernatural side to give me some understanding of where the shows heading, this may of been intentional though in any case it left me looking forward to the next episode. Not bad at all, there's plenty of shows out now that are a hell off allot worse than this, if you haven't watched the original don't let people who have put you off this one. 7.5/10
