It's terrible
8 February 2015 | by nordenhillarionSee all my reviews

What a boring, sparkles, horrible show. Writers without ideas, clues and knowhow. What a waste of time - mine and money - mine again. Went thru 4 episodes - monumental c..p - poop. The creators trying to do the sci-fi show without any effects, which is OK with me, but if the idea was more realism then they missed. It looks like author(s) have no damned idea what to do after first 30 minutes of the first episode. O, hell let's improvise and have a job for little while longer. Let's create mild characters, insane situations, little bit of blood, little bit of sex, weak and sociopathic politicians, strong female doctor and deus ex machine - black plague bacteria with empty insides - LOL. I like that body guard (secret service guy). I'm hoping there is only one season of this... show, please ! 1 star - for actors.
