The acting of this show is so-so, nobody is going to win Emmy or some
other award, it wasn't bad as well, it was something you would expect
from the actors you never heard off. But the show itself, I absolutely
loved it! Yes, it has many unsolved mysteries in its plot line, but I
think that makes it worthwhile watching. The whole ambient of the
setting is awesome, dark, cold, secretive, the ghost town was a nice
touch to the overall plot.
I couldn't wait to see the next episode and I am hoping they bring us the second season, it would be a shame they left like this. There are way too many unanswered questions, I already felt that the first season missed another ten episodes for the viewers to find out at least some part of the storyline.

Well, as I was about to see the first episode, and now the second one
of this show, I didn't know what to expect. At first it seemed as it
was going to be some sort of soap opera thing, and some elements are
there, but this show is way, way more then that.
I like the setting of the show very much, it gives a mysterious vibe, the way we are introduced to all the characters, the way the story unfolds each episodes, and especially that every episode means that Emily Thorne will get her revenge against one person who was a conspirator against her family. It makes it worth watching as each time the punishment is different.
This story is truly a breath of fresh air to what we can watch these days on television. There aren't no big explosions, guns, violence, but there is a mystery which sometimes it's more then enough to make the show a great one.
Finally, something original. The whole premise of the show seems little
bit strange at times, but it makes sense. It's something we haven't
seen on TV in while. I like the actors that were casted for the show,
Jim Caviezel looks good as an ex-CIA hit-man, his martial arts
sequences are credible, he looks like he knows what his doing. Michael
Emerson is perfect in his role, as an odd billionaire who is a genius.
A strange team that solves strange cases, it has a mysterious vibe
which is good, it has a JJ Abrams signature all over. Nice bounce back
for him after the failure of The Undercovers last year.
Definitely, a show that deserves a chance, it could become a hit, I guess it all depends how the story unfolds beyond the opening episode.
This is what a good show is all about, it is wonderfully funny,
entertaining, smart, interesting, it has great characters who
complement each other great. It makes you feel good.
The thing that impressed me the most are the shooting sequences, especially of New York, it's like New York you've never seen it before, it has great coordination of the main aspects of filming which makes it even more interesting.
Also, it is great to see how the comedy sequences complement to action-thriller sequences, going from one to another in a way that makes you won't more.
A truly great show, I would recommend it to everyone.
WELL DONE! I have to say it, I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, casting
was great, every actor does a great job of making this movie what is
supposed to be, a great fun! Even Rampage Jackson did a good job.
Liam Neeson is amazing as always, Bradley Cooper did a perfect "Peck" performance, and Sharlto Copley was as funny as one could hoped for in this kind of movie. I always liked the A-Team series and was thrilled when I saw this movie is being made and it fulfilled my every expectation.
It is action packed, funny, has a good story, develops characters very well and makes a good finish living at least a hope that the sequel will be made, because this movie, this franchise deserves a sequel.
Seeing how people grade certain movies I wonder what kind of sense of
humor do they have, judging by this movie, I would say none! This movie
is solid 8, if not more, it's funny, sometimes hilarious, with great
characters, story, actors who very well do theirs work.
Certain parts of this movie are just laugh out loud funny, creative vision of the producers goes far in this case, they created a wonderful, entertaining piece of work well worth the money. I would, without any doubt recommend this movie to all people who just want to relax, who just want to enjoy movie without overthinking it, a movie without hidden meaning.
It is beyond me why this movie is rated at merely 4.9/10. I could agree
that this is more of a drama then a comedy, although it has its funny
moments. This is actually very good movie, well acted, a movie that
makes you think about love and friendship, about who are the people in
your life you can really, I mean really trust. This movie tells a story
about how tough sometimes can be to be truly honest to people who mean
the most to you.
As I was reading how people criticized the movie, I could agree with certain points, but not with the critic that this was a bad movie. Because it wasn't, I enjoyed it very much and would recommend it.
I was very disappointed with the first episode of this show and it
seems this will be what show is about, a lesser version of true
Not a single character of this show is convincing, Forrest Whitaker has seen far better roles then this one, as a team leader he is weak, not all too likable. Basically, this show is a copy of the real Criminal Minds, only far, far worse, actually it can't stand in the same sentence with the original show. Matt Ryan character, for example, you basically couldn't understand what the guy is saying.
In all honesty, I would be very surprised if this show survives the first season, it just isn't worth it.
Wow...as I found out earlier this past summer that JJ Abrams will
produce this show I was eager to see it, but now as I watch this few
episodes I can say that this is by far the worst thing JJ ever did.
Firstly, the main characters are boring, there is no chemistry, and as the story goes, they are supposed to be experienced spies but their skill is shown as less then average. I guess the main premise of this show was to put few nice looking people on the show and let's wait and see what happens. And what happened was a big mistake.
The only character that is worth something is Hoyte and I am wondering why he isn't given more space in the show.
This show, like any spy show had potential, and I guess JJ got this on behalf of his previous success stories, but I will be absolutely stunned if this show goes beyond the first season, I wouldn't be even surprised if it was canceled in the middle of the first season, it's that bad.
Although I am only 28 years old, this 1980s show brings wonderful
memories. I remember back in high school during the 1990s I was
captivated by the this MacGyver character, his battles against arch
enemy Murdock, and I was wishing there were many more shows like this,
even today. This show was intelligent, creative, non-violent even
though it had fair amount of fights, but it wasn't about killing a
whole bunch of people like many shows today have stories that evolve in
I was fortunate enough to buy all seven seasons of MacGyver and even today I enjoy watching them. Richard Dean Anderson did a great job with the portrayal of this somewhat legendary character.
