User Reviews

 
Good but could become stale very quickly.
13 March 2015 | by Shopaholic35See all my reviews

I'm kinda digging this show. It's sort of like Homeland but it doesn't take itself as seriously. It has a good cast with some star power and it's success doesn't rely solely on "celebrities". The story does need a little fleshing out though. So far there has only been one personal life explored, and that has been limited. Right now it is very work focused and the human side of the characters are not being explained very well.

The show definitely has room to grow but I'm not sure if it will take that opportunity. I feel that it could become stale very quickly if they don't develop the concept. Aside from that it's still a pretty good show with plenty of potential.
