Still Waiting to Figure Out What's Going On Here
6 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

The new series started out strongly, with a gritty atmosphere, an interesting concept, and great visual effects, but if this new episode is any indication, it looks like the series is going downhill quickly. After five episodes I still don't really like any of the characters, and quite frankly we barely know who they are. This episode introduced more characters, none of them especially interesting or likable. I really thought this was going to be another great series like Battlestar Galactica, but it's not even close.

The story line is so convoluted that the viewer has no idea how the various threads are going. Who are the good guys and the bad guys? Perhaps future episodes will sort everything out, but I'm not sure I'm willing to invest that much time into this.
