Season One was better! Skip Season 2!
16 February 2020 | by DavidMovieReviewSee all my reviews

In Season 1 of this show, the cast was much bigger and more captivating. There were several strong male actors in the 1st season who were replaced by the 2 man/2 woman team in Season 2, I assume for budgeting reasons. It would have been better to kill the show after Season 1 than to dumb it down the way they did.

Season 1 has a love story intertwined. Bryan's love interest simply vanishes between the two seasons, which was horrendous writing. Bryan is pretty boring alone as he's almost robotic at an emotional level (the actor seems like a very nice guy, but he doesn't emote much at all). Lots of sighs and near clinical depression in Season 2, but little passion.

If you saw the movie "Taken," you know that Bryan had a bunch of close friends from his "old life," which is what I suppose this show was trying to reveal to us. The fact that they removed his big group of buddies to trim the budget in season 2 is simply sad. Watch Season 1 and save yourself the time and skip all of Season 2. It's almost all mechanical action sequences with very little heart. There are also some horrific supporting actors in season 2 as well that just make things worse (no names!). They are cookie-cutter bad guys. Laughable really despite the sometimes long and tedious fight scenes.

I love Jessica Beals as a person and way back as the "Flashdance" star (amazing), but she's almost stone cold in this one and to me not believable. I believe she was miscast for the role. She's at best passable, which is just not good enough, especially in the setting of the four person team in Season 2.

"Kilroy" gets so repetitive in his attitudes, it was difficult to watch his scenes. At the start he was like the tech character in "Italian Job," but a neurotic version of him vs. the bold and out there version in that movie. Guess which one was more interesting to watch? I think Adam Goldberg is a very good actor, but his role became tedious. Characters need to evolve or change to some degree over the course of a series. Let's blame the writer for that.

There is another core flaw in Season 2. How the writer and director theoretically conceived of carrying out anti-terrorist missions with TWO operatives in Season 2 in the first place is beyond comprehension. In many scenes, ONE of them was acting alone, which is even more ridiculous. As said, they should have buried Season 2 before it started. You should bury Season 2 as well, as your time is valuable, and I've wasted mine to save yours! ;)

(Season 1: Score of 6 Season 2: Score of 5...My 5 ranking is "barely watchable" and 6 is "not bad; watchable)
