So-so
28 July 2014 | by maxgallowSee all my reviews

Formulaic bad guy. Big plot holes. OK acting. Big secretive government oversees the last children but yet doesn't provide financial support for the last remaining parents. The government agency that is supposed to insure these children's well-being is in fact hostile towards the Parents for no reason. Not very original. There was very little that was actually original in the script. The science is also really badly done. Like no one even checked on possible reasons this could happen to make it plausible The bad guy was almost a caricature. The lead actress is about 20 years too young to play a believable scientist. Everyone on her team is under 30. Not gonna watch episode 3.
