One of the best pilots I've seen in a while
30 August 2014 | by ZubaczSee all my reviews

Review based on the first episode: I sincerely hope this show keeps up the tension and atmosphere of the pilot. Apart from The Killing, there aren't many TV shows which revolve around broken and unlikable characters. It just isn't pleasant to watch stressed, struggling and often unpredictable people. Yet, such TV leaves you feeling like you experienced something emotional. Among all the ugliness, even the smallest pleasant act or scene can mean a lot; when our tiny hopes for a positive resolution are fulfilled, we appreciate it all the more.

The acting and cinematography are great. The interactions are realistic and the viewer understands each character. Every scene seems important and keeping focus is rewarding. Not knowing what to believe, whom to trust and what the motivations are, is a necessary part of such a show, however what subtle hints we do get are delivered very well.

I don't want to praise this show prematurely, considering we have only seen one episode, however if it keeps up the twists, plots and great characters, I am sure it will be a success.

Considering the amount of people who feel the irresistible need to tell others their views on religion, I suppose a lot of viewers will express strong opinions about the themes of this show. I hope others will not be dissuaded by those opinions. This is a clever show, definitely not aimed at advertising anyone's beliefs or conversely, offending anyone else's.
