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

Bland show, bad story, poor acting, cheap excuse for Sci-fi
18 April 2015 | by DjervigSee all my reviews

My main issue is that this show is advertised as a sci-fi. It is not! Ironically the two most unscientific characters on the show, are the two people supposed to be scientist. The writing is absolutely horrible, it's still to early to really judge the actual story, seeing how we only have the first episode thus far. But I don't have high hopes for this show, the plot just sounds really boring.

If you want good sci-fi, you need to create an interesting universe, in which you can experiment with different aspects of reality. WALL- E, what if the earth died - GATTACA, what if we could genetically improve our lives before they even began - and so on. It's all about asking what if - and this show completely fails to ask any interesting questions. Honestly I would deem it pure fantasy, but even as a fantasy story it fails, see how fantasy stories are supposed to be relatable metaphors for life - often coming of age stories. But this show is neither, it is just bad.
