This is not the first time Salli Richardson-Whitfield has worked for a "covert" division of the U.S. Government. In the TV show Eureka, Richardson-Whitfield played Dr. Allison Blake, who happened to be a liaison for the DOD at Global Dynamics, which is a secret research facility in northern Oregon. See more »
One of my biggest problems with the show is the main character, Kirsten. Not that the actress playing her is bad, but the way the show has decided to present her is. Because of her condition she unable to feel like the rest of us(which is what makes her perfect for the program she is enlisted for), but her lack of feeling is portrayed as a complete lack of empathy for others. This condition of hers could have been portrayed in an entirely different way. The show has her coming off as a sarcastic, sociopathic narcissistic brat who is very annoying. Instead of feeling something for her because of her handicap, you just want to smack the s@@t out of her. If you cannot like the main character of this show then I don't know if there is much hope for the rest of the season either. I've seen shows much better than this cancelled. So, unless something miraculous happens, I don't believe this show has much of a chance.
