Trivia

The premise of the series involves a powerful computer that sees the cast members via cameras. From the computer's view, the screen shows a box around them with their name and other information. This is very similar to how people were seen by "the machine" (a powerful computer) on Person of Interest (2011), which Sarah Shahi appeared in over the span of 3 years. See more »

A good show in need of some polishing to become a great series
14 July 2018 | by rmullen-34733See all my reviews

First....it's a great plot and concept, whether it's based upon 'The Cell' or not and it's clearly well cast, specifically utilizing a very under-rated actress Sarah Shahi.

I'm a sci-fi geek to begin with and find myself struggling to watch most series and movies of that genre because of poorly conceived plots and assemblence of poorly casted actors/actresses out of their elements. Yet this one has all the special effects, characters/personalities that mesh, believable and well-conceived story-lines, etc....and comes close to really pulling off a great series.

I think NBC has a winner here and look forward to this show developing and growing into the potential it has....it'll be interesting to see how they can keep the underlining concern and issues of the main character, who has some deeply set issues of her own to deal with outside of her admirable instinct to preserve the lives of others first.
