little film noir on TV
4 May 2014 | by oxid_19See all my reviews

(review based on the pilot)

I do not understand the complains and the negative critics. You have to rate the title based on the subject and the genre. I think it has some potential, if the writers divert the story to the right direction. It all depends how good they can develop the characters, what kind of new story-lines can they bring in. Obviously the best parts are when the main character goes crazy, so this element will be the main driver force. The whole visual atmosphere is kinda dark, it's like a film noir, and the music emphasize this. I think this is one of the strongest feature of the movie. You should give it a try. Overall very enjoyable pilot.
