Let down, terrible pilot
28 October 2015 | by divajoolsSee all my reviews

I'm a huge Ed Westwick fan, and had high hopes for this. I thought the trailers made it look really good, and it was really talked up. But after last night.no wonder it's failing in the critic world and had ABC's record low fall premiere. It was terrible! It was so rushed, no back story was given, i didn't give a *beep* about any of the characters because there was no time to give a *beep* As soon as i was getting into a scene it was dropped and rushed onto the next. the pilot has lined this show up to fail.

this show definitely won't last, unfortunately (or maybe a bit fortunately).
