Storyline

In the New Mexico desert, scientist, Vera Ivanov (Shantel VanSanten) watches in as a mysterious object falls to Earth. It explodes, and sends out a shockwave which briefly stops her heart. But Vera isn't the only one affected: she's instantly connected to 4 others, all of whom had also collapsed, only to come back to life hours later. A mysterious figure - known only as "the man" (Diogo Morgado) comes and offers Vera the chance to be reunited with her kidnapped son, if she helps him with one complicated task. Now, this group might be the only hope for preventing the impending end of civilisation... or causing it. Written by Soumik Ghosh

Canceled way too early.
6 June 2015 | by marcusturner-65330See all my reviews

Whether this show was totally amazing or grade A dog moo-moo. I believe no show should be canceled until the season is concluded and you get the full picture of what the show is truly about. The acting is pretty corny I admit, but the concept is actually interesting. I bet when this show ends up on Netflix its going to have 4 or 5 stars lol. People nowadays hardly watch television and mostly watch Hulu, Netflix or even download what they watch. I've seen it time and time again. The show "Jericho" for instance was canceled after 2 seasons due to low rating. Jercho is rated 4 1/2 Stars on Netflx now. Another CW Show "The Tomorrow People" Canceled after 1 season is rated 5 Stars on Netflix and is in the most popular section. Television is slowly dying from the Internet's ever growing grip.

Now a moment of silence for all the shows that were taken from us too soon....
