Stay away
11 September 2010 | by See all my reviews

If I had a time machine, the first thing I would have done before traveling to 21th December 2012 to see if our world is really gonna blow out or something, I would have go back to the day I started watching "Persons Unknown", turn off the TV and write on my mirror "Avoid Persons Unknown like it was a dangerously blazing fire or the second strike of Black Death".

The problem of this show is that it ends with too many open ties and that the viewer is left with the same thought he had after the first episode ended: "What the hell is the meaning of this weird program?" Well, after wasting 13 hours of my life with watching this poorly executed series, I can wholeheartedly say that "Persons Unknown" is just a result of a bad screenwriter who had an idea for a mini series but had no clue how to end the script or what's gonna be the motive for the "bad guys" and that the fact that he is having a severe writer's block shouldn't bother him until he writes the last episode and sends this meaningless case of some imaginary "big brother" kinda organization that rules everyone and everything just for sake of doing it to NBC.

Overall, this is a really time wasting meaningless series, ignore it.
