Trivia

Cassandra King provides valuable intel about forthcoming situations. In Greek mythology, Cassandra is also the name of a woman who could see the future. However, in the myth, she was cursed by god Apollo, so that no one would ever believe her prophecies again and therefore she could never prevent the tragedies she'd see. See more »

Mixed elements make it an interesting watch.
10 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

This show simply needs to be on Showtime / Starz or HBO to really make it 100%. I think it has potential but not for the NBC crowd.

If you like Action you will like this show. Interesting concept, likable characters set in a world of underground crime elements that could be plausible. Sure it's not realistic but it is interesting entertainment.

The plot is a interesting what if of can crime be gambled on.

Elements of good tactical gun work.

Good physical hand to hand skills.

Some tech mixed in with gun play and car chases suggests how our everyday tech can be used against us or for us.

Overall a fun to watch mini series.
