I was intrigued by the premise of the show and the fact that Tim Kring was involved, but that turned out to be a serious downside as well. There are many similarities to 'Heroes' which he created, but unfortunately not to the first magnificent season, more to the poorly executed subsequent ones. As in 'Heroes' there are many people whose stories want to be told, some of them yet again in unnecessary foreign languages with annoying subtitles. Sadly the storytelling is all over the place, the scenes feel highly disjointed and it just leaves you wondering why they couldn't make the story about fewer characters but more to the point. The clumsy storytelling of two different timelines makes it artificial rather than believable and will probably be aligned in future episodes, but I have now got to the point where I don't care about the stories or the characters anymore...
