Tedious
19 January 2019 | by jodi-44528See all my reviews

I've grown so weary of the writing on this show. They have dragged out the whole Hive plot line for the entire season, and it's done nothing but make a very boring season. For a group of elite agents, they are actually quite stupid. They allow anyone and everyone on their plane/in their headquarters. They take everything at face value instead of investigating and making sure everyone is safe. And their security is laughable; otherwise, the bad guys wouldn't keep getting the drop on them.

I just think they could come up with better stories. I doubt I'll be watching after this season. I knew exactly what was going to happen before it did. I'd rather be surprised by the writing instead of sitting through the same old, same old. Disappointing for what could be a great show, with the caliber of actors it has.
